As with all of the theme decks of the time, Zap! comes with a 60-card ready-to-play preconstructed deck from the Pokémon TCG complete with cards from the game's Base Set, ten damage counter beads, a special Pokémon coin depicting Chansey (as variance through flipping coins played, and even still plays, an important part in the game's mechanics), a list showcasing the cards in the deck, and a rule book. The Zap! deck, is, as evidenced by the packaging, a deck that prominently features Psychic-type and Electric-type Pokémon within it but can be customized to make use of other types if one so wishes to unseal it for play. This deck even features a holographic Mewtwo card from the Base Set within it, which we can only presume is in perfect condition as this box, in Excellent condition itself, has not been unsealed.
