This Starter Deck is unusual as it contains a random assortment of cards, whereas regular Standard Decks contain the same pre-selected cards. This trend had been used in Japan with every first expansion in a new Generation and during transitional eras until the BW Era, with an exception to this being in Generation III, where it was implemented in part via Half Decks alongside Flight of Legends. The deck could contain any of the cards found in Space-Time Creation, including Pokémon LV.X. Additionally, cards from the Entry Pack, differing from the main expansion cards only by a lack of rarity symbols, could also be packaged in the deck.
This deck is similar to English releases such as the 2-Player Starter Set and 2-Player CD-ROM Starter Set, designed to introduce players to the Generation IV cards found in the main expansion.
Like others, the Random Construction Starter Deck also includes a rulebook, damage counters, a custom coin, and card list.
