Card legality

・Banned Cards

Pokémon TCG Banned Cards List


【Important】

Note that although the ‘Deck Construction’ tool on the Trainers Website will let you submit a decklist with cards that have been officially available for less than 2 weeks, such cards are not yet allowed in official events like Pokémon Regional Leagues.

(Example)

Cards from a product that was released on November 3rd are not allowed until November 17, where they finally become legal for play.

Any player who submitted a deck list containing illegal cards may receive 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.

For Qualifier Round 1

Players who haven’t completed the check-in process by the end of the check-in time will have their first round recorded as a Loss, and in principle are disqualified from the event.
If such a player wishes to rejoin the event and start playing from Round 2, they must complete the necessary procedure at the Event Management main desk before the end of the first round.

From Qualifier Round 2 onwards

If a player is not seated at their designated table and ready to play when the round starts, they will be considered as having lost that round and will not be able to play in the rest of the tournament.
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).

* Details such as the number of rounds are subject to change depending on attendance.
