Card legality

・Banned Cards

Pokémon TCG Banned Cards List


【Important: Cards from ‘Scarlet & Violet – Temporal Forces’ releasing on March 22 won’t be legal for play in the Pokémon Regional League 2023-24 Malaysia Vol.3】

For major official events such as the Pokémon Regional League 2023-24 Malaysia Vol.3 competition, cards only become legal for play two weeks after their official release date. Since that two-weeks period will not have passed between the release of the ‘Scarlet & Violet – Temporal Forces’ expansion on March 22 and the Pokémon Regional League 2023-24 Malaysia Vol.3 competition being held on March 30-31, decks registered for that event cannot include cards from ‘Temporal Forces’.

Make sure you don’t include any of those cards when submitting your deck, otherwise you will get a penalty.

  • Once submitted, players are not allowed to change their deck.
  • Make sure your list does not include any illegal cards, which the Deck Construction tool will sometimes let you put in your deck list.

Check-in

You will need to scan the QR code displayed at the Check-in counter inside the venue to complete your check-in.

Any player using a picture of the QR code to check-in remotely risks a penalty from a Game Loss up to a disqualification.

In preparation for check-in on the day of the event, please make sure that:

  • You know your Trainers Website login email address and password
  • You bring a document to prove you reside in the region of the event

For Players who got a Regional League invite + Bye(s) from a Town League competition:

Players with one or more Byes must still check-in by the end of the check-in time and be present for the Player Meeting, same as all other players.

Any such player who is not checked in by the end of the dedicated time will be considered as being late, and they will get a Match Loss for the first round they were supposed to start playing from.

In that case, if that player wishes to keep playing in the tournament, they have until the end of Round 1 to go to the Check-in counter and fill a re-entry request. Note that if you are late and don’t submit a re-entry request, you will be disqualified from the tournament.

※ Concrete examples of which rounds Losses for tardiness get applied to:

For a player with 1 Bye: Round 1 gets counted as a Win, Round 2 as a Loss, then they start playing from Round 3.

For a player with 2 Byes: Rounds 1 and 2 get counted as Wins, Round 3 as a Loss, then they start playing from Round 4.

(Assuming they were late for check-in but submitted a re-entry request before the end of Round 1)


Before the event, please make sure you know your Trainers Website password and ensure that it is working correctly.

When you check-in on the day of the event, after scanning the QR code, you will need to log into your account.

If while trying to log in you input the wrong password 3 times, your account will get locked for 15 minutes for security reasons and you won’t be able to try logging in again for that duration.

If you don’t complete your check-in by the end of the dedicated check-in time because you weren’t able to log into your account, it will still be considered as tardiness and you will get a Round 1 Game Loss.

Please take the time, before the day of the event, to make sure you have no issues logging into your account.

On the day of the event, you will not need to log into your account before reading the check-in QR code.
Tardiness

Players who have not completed check-in by the end of the dedicated check-in time will get a Loss for that round.

Players who were late but still wish to participate in the competition must fill the re-entry form available at the event organiser desk, before the end of Round 1.

From Round 2 onwards, players who are not seated at their designated table and ready to start playing when the round starts will be considered as having lost the match and will not be able to play in the rest of the tournament.

Players who miss a match without having formally dropped out of the event by completing the necessary form will be disqualified.
No-shows Players who didn’t show up at the event and had not properly canceled their participation through their Trainers Website account may lose their right to attend future events (unless they can provide a legitimate reason for their absence).
