Allied Initial Forces: All other Turn 1 Units may base at any appropriate port (excluding Arizona, Prince of Wales, Repulse, 5th A.F, and 7th A.F. which are considered lost on the unplayed Turn One).

Special Rules: None

Notes: It can be argued that the IJN didn't control the Central Pacific on Turn 1.  However, since no significant USN force passed through the Central Pacific during the historical period matching turn two and in consideration of the imminently scheduled invasion of Midway (not to mention play balance), I've left the Central Pacific in IJN hands.
