The Half Deck was released on July 13, 2002. It focuses on the Legendary Pokemon Latios and Latias, as well as several Owner's Pokemon and some that are native to Alto Mare, the central location in the movie. The cards use e-Card stock in the same fashion as those from the Pokemon VS expansion, and also feature the same "VS" symbol that appears on the Pokemon VS expansion cards. As with Pokemon VS, Wizards of the Coast did not translate these cards following their statement that such cards were inappropriate for competitive play. All of the cards exclusive to the Half Deck were therefore never released outside of Japan. In addition to the cards, the Half Deck contains a rulebook, damage counters, status counters, and a custom coin.
