Starter deck

(Redirected from Starting deck)
This article is about the decks of the Pokémon Trading Card Game video game. For the actual decks, see Theme Deck (TCG).

At the beginning of their quest, a Trading Card Game duelist is given one of these decks in the video games Pokémon Trading Card Game and Pokémon Card GB2: Here Comes Team GR!.

Starter decks

Pokémon Trading Card Game

At the start of Pokémon Trading Card Game, Dr. Mason gives the player character Mark any of three options of decks to start this journey. The player may choose the Charmander & Friends Deck, the Squirtle & Friends Deck, or the Bulbasaur & Friends Deck. Each deck is named after a member of the original trio of Kanto starter Pokémon: Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle.

These three deck configurations are also found in the Deck Save Machine since the start of the game, and can be deleted from this machine like any other saved deck. They are not exactly the same as the decks found in the first Auto Deck Machine, which share the same name in English, but have different names in Japanese.
