'''Base Set''' (Japanese: '''第1弾スターターパック''' & '''第1弾拡張パック''' ''1st Starter & Expansion Pack'') is the name given to the original core release of cards and {{TCG|Theme Deck}}s for the [[Pokémon Trading Card Game]]. It was released in Japan on October 20, 1996, and in the United States on January 9, 1999.

==Information==
[[ImageFile:Base set Japanese Ad.jpg|thumb|right|An advertisement for the original Japanese release]]
*While thethis expansion beganofficially introduced the TCG into the United States officially in January of 1999, many stores were initially reluctant to sell the game. As a result, it did not see a widespread release until March or April of that year.
*The {{TCG|1st Edition}} print run sold extremely quickly, making first edition Base Set cards some of the most sought-after of all of the early TCG expansions.
*All cards in the first few print runs (both first edition and unlimited) were printed with thinner HP and attack text and without drop shadows for the illustration window. These are commonly known as "shadowless cards" and are more valuable than later runs.
*This expansion was replaced by {{TCG|Base Set 2}} on its release, as by that point Base Set had been out of print for some time.
*Several final form Pokémon were left out of this set despite their pre-evolved forms appearing, such- asButterfree, DragoniteClefable, Dodrio, Dragonite, Gengar, Hypno, Pidgeot, SandslashRapidash, ButterfreeSandslash and HypnoWeezing. These cards were later released in {{TCG|Jungle}} and {{TCG|Fossil}}.
 
==Print Runs==
*The {{TCG|1st Edition}} print run sold extremely quickly, making first edition Base Set cards some of the most sought-after of all of the early TCG expansions.
*The {{TCG|1st Edition|Shadowless}} print mirror the 1st Edition cards except for the 1st Edition logo. All cards in the 1st Edition and Shadowless runs were printed with thinner HP and attack text. These cards were without drop shadows for the illustration window, hence the name shadowless. Shadowless cards are more valuable than later runs.
*The Unlimited print is the most common print of the Base Set.
*There was a fourth print run that mirrored the Unlimited print, the only difference being the date, which reads "1999-2000". This print was released in countries outside of North America.

==Changes between the Japanese and international release==
*In TCG expansions up until {{TCG|Pokémon VS}}, the Japanese cards did not have a numbering system, and so the only number featured on the Japanese cards is the Pokémon's [[NationalKanto Pokédex|Pokédex]] number.
*The English cards adopted a system based on ordering the cards alphabetically and by descending rarity (rare-holo, rare, uncommon, common) and class of card (Pokémon, Trainer, Energy). This ordering remained in place until the release of {{TCG|Black & White}}. The Japanese set is ordered by type ({{TCG|Grass}}, {{TCG|Fire}}, {{TCG|Water}}, {{TCG|Lightning}}, {{TCG|Psychic}}, {{TCG|Fighting}}, {{TCG|Colorless}}), National Pokédex number, and ascending rarity (rare and rare-holo counting the same). This ordering remained in place until {{TCG|e-Card 2}}.
