|The Base Set is the name given to the original core release of cards for the Pokémon Trading Card Game. It was released in the United States on January 9, 1999. It is the only set and expansion so far not to have a set logo or symbol. It is one of few sets to include Fighting, Fire, Grass, Lightning, Psychic and Water Energy cards, now commonly known as basic Energy cards. The set also contained Double Colorless Energy, the first special Energy card. |
The set is one of the more well-rounded sets available, with a mixed amount of Pokémon of all types, and includes only Pokémon from the original 150. Some of the more popular examples are Charizard, Blastoise, Venusaur and Pikachu.
