 Pokemon TCG Base Set 2 Booster GyaradosBase Set 2 is the name of the fourth English expansion of the Pokemon Trading Card Game and was the first expansion for the TCG not to be released in Japan or to have a 1st Edition Print, going straight to Unlimited.

Essentiallly Base Set 2 is a re-print of cards from the Jungle Set and original Base Set. Although this was standard practice from Wizards of the Coast at the time this was not appreciated by some players and collectors and resulted in a mixed reception for the set, especially when compared to the Legendary Collection - thought of by many as "Base Set 3" even if not named as such which was recieved in a much more positive manner.

The 130 cards in Base Set 2 made it the biggest set to date at the time, towering above Fossil and Jungle, and even being 28 cards larger than the original base set; as mentioned this was a reprint of cards from the Original Base Set and Jungle Set - the total of those two sets would've been 166 cards, so that means 36 were left out; lets take a look at which cards didn't make the cut!
