This list provides you with the cards you’ll need to build any two decks of the most popular decks from any of the three 2000 formats:

- Base Set–Team Rocket (February 2000–June 1999)
- Base Set–Gym Heroes (June 2000–August 2000)
- Base Set–Gym Challenge (August 2000–December 2000)

As a reminder, the Base–Gym article I have written focuses on the Base–Gym Challenge format, as it supplements the Base–Gym Heroes format.

The list below focuses on building decks **only **from the 2000 formats, meaning it is missing key cards needed for earlier 1999 formats. If you are interested in building decks from the 1999 (Base/Jungle/Fossil) formats, use the 1999 format checklist.

**Notes**

- All Base Set & Jungle cards on this list are reprinted in Base Set 2. Base Set 2 versions are typically less expensive than their
*Base Set*counterparts, so keep this in mind, especially when searching for holographic cards, like Chansey and Clefairy. - This list contains cards that aren’t featured in any deck lists of my 2000-format articles, such as Base Set Hitmonchan. That’s because there are additional possibilities of competitively viable decks that feature these cards. (Don’t be afraid to experiment with new deck ideas!)
