Format

The format for this event is called Commander, inspired by Magic Commander format. The rules are the following:

  • Commander is an unlimited format, what means it includes all available sets in PTCGO (HS - SHF);
  • Your 60 cards deck must contain only one copy of each card (except basic energy). This includes every art or reprint of the same card, but doesn't include every card with the same name (you can't use holofoil Marnie and regular Marnie in the same deck, but you can use one copy of Charizard from Team Up and one copy of Charizard from VIV, for example);
  • Your deck must contain exactly one card of each of the following classes:
    • Commander: either a V, GX or EX Pokémon (you still can't have more than 1 copy of your commander);
    • Captain: either a Prism Star (including trainers/energy) or Amazing Rare (you still can't have more than 1 copy of your captain);
  • This tournament has a ban list, which is displayed in the top of this page (all arts and reprints of banned cards are automatically also banned). Tag Team Pokémon, VMAX and MEGA are NOT allowed. Pokémon with the Ancient Trait Δ Plus and Ultrabeasts are also banned.
  • You can't use two cards with the exact same effect (virtual reprints) in your deck, like Boss' Order/Lysandre, Professor Sycamore/Professor Juniper and Repel/Pokémon Circulator, for example;
  • You can't use more than one card with the ability Garbotoxin in your deck. You can't use more than one card with the ability Energy Evolution as well.

If you fail to accomplish any of the rules above, you're at risk of being disqualified (DQ).
