(Redirecting to Auto Deck Machine)
 
The '''Deck Save Machine''' (Japanese: '''デッキきろくマシン''' ''Deck Record Machine'') is a machine in {{ga|Pokémon Trading Card Game}} and [[Pokémon Card GB2: Here Comes Team GR!]].
#REDIRECT [[Auto Deck Machine]]
 
The player is able to save customized deck configurations in this machine. This is similar to the [[Auto Deck Machine|Auto Deck Machines]], which contain predefined decks.
 
==Location==
In {{ga|Pokémon Trading Card Game}}, this is the largest machine in the east room of the [[Mason Laboratory]].
 
In [[Pokémon Card GB2: Here Comes Team GR!]], this machine is in the northeast corner of the east room of the [[Mason Laboratory]]. It is also available anywhere by using the Minicom from the [[menu]].
 
==Mechanics==
The player is able to save a currently used deck into this machine and retrieve a saved deck at any later point.
 
The player is able to choose which of the save slots is used to save the deck. There are 60 slots available in the first game and 50 slots available in the second game. If the player tries to save into a slot that already has a previously saved deck, they will be required to delete the previous deck if they want to use that slot. The number of currently saved decks and the maximum number of slots available are shown at the top of the Deck Save Machine screen. For instance, if the player has 3 saved decks in the first game, the number would be "3/60".
 
The list of available decks uses the same symbols ([[wiktionary:○|○]], [[wiktionary:×|×]], and [[wiktionary:※|※]]) as the [[Auto Deck Machine]].
 
In [[Pokémon Card GB2: Here Comes Team GR!]], whenever the player creates a new deck, the game asks if they want a copy of the configuration saved in the Deck Save Machine.

In both games, press Start to check the cards in the deck. There is no visible command to do this in either game. (unlike the Auto Deck Machines, which have the "Read the instructions" command to achieve this)
 
==Starting decks==
In {{ga|Pokémon Trading Card Game}}, the 3 starter decks are available in the Deck Save Machine at the beginning of the game. These are the same decks that are available to [[player character]] Mark at the beginning of his journey. They are able to be deleted from this machine, like any other saved deck.
 
* {{TCG|Charmander & Friends Deck}}
* {{TCG|Squirtle & Friends Deck}}
* {{TCG|Bulbasaur & Friends Deck}}
 
They are not exactly the same as the decks found in the first [[Auto Deck Machine]]. The decks found there share the same name in English, but they have different names in Japanese.
 
In [[Pokémon Card GB2: Here Comes Team GR!]], the Deck Save Machine does not have any saved deck at the start of the game. The {{OBP|Starter Deck|GB2}} (the deck the player started with) is available at the [[Auto Deck Machine]] instead.
