This basic version of the Pokémon is called your Active Pokémon, and in most cases, this Pokemon attacks the opponent Pokemon and gets damaged. If no basic Pokemon is received then the game is a draw and the cards are shuffled again. Both the players should have at least one basic Pokemon to start the game. They can play for 5 more in the battle field called bench with a carry limit of 6. The Players are then free to pick from the six cards of their cards and arrange them as Prize Cards.
