Pokémon is a collectible trading card game. You take on the role of a Pokémon Trainer. Your goal is to train a team of powerful Pokémon from those they have caught to compete against teams owned by other Trainers, and eventually become the strongest Trainer: the Pokémon Master!

The Basics

Normal deck construction consists of a minimum of 60 cards.  Each deck may contain no more than (4) copies of any card except "basic energy". Victory goes to the player that claims all of his "prize cards" first OR by defeating an opponent's "active Pokémon" without that opponent having any Pokémon on their 'bench" that can move from the bench to be the active Pokémon.

The Formats

Constructed formats require players to construct decks from cards they own, prior to the event. Constructed play formats are based on which sets are allowed to be used. Each format has a unique list of banned cards.

+ Unlimited - All Pokémon booster sets, starter decks, special collections, and promotional cards that have been released in the United States may be used.
+ Modified - Only certain Pokémon booster sets, starter decks, special collections, and promotional cards may be used.
+ 2-On-2 Battle - Each player is allowed to have (2) Active Pokémon in play at a time.
+ 30-Card - Players are allowed to build decks consisting of half as many cards as a standard deck.
+ Team Battle - Two players participate on a team, each player having one Active Pokémon.
+ Set Specific - Only cards from a specified set are legal for use.

In Limited events players must purchase unopened booster packs at the event and construct decks from the cards they receive from those packs.

The Style

We play swiss-style rounds. In swiss-style, the first round is paired randomly. Each subsequent round puts players with similar records against each other. For example, players that are 3-0 after three rounds would play each other in round four.
