Your deck does not have to be legal in any sanctioned TCG format -- if a card is available in PTCGO and meets all the criteria below, it can be used in this event.

Pokemon Rules:

  • You may NOT use any Pokemon with an attack that has any descriptive text below the attack name. See examples below.
  • You may NOT use any Pokemon with a Rule Box.
  • Your deck must contain a minimum of 8 Basic Pokemon.


Limitations on Pokemon with Abilities:

  • All other Pokemon with abilities are limited to TWO (2) copies.

Trainer Rules:

  • The only Supporters allowed are “Apricorn Maker” & “Ball Guy”
  • The only Items allowed are those with “Ball” in their name.
  • There are NO Stadiums or Tool Cards allowed

Energy Rules:

  • All Basic & Special Energy permitted


  • Swiss Rounds; all matches are Best-of-3.
  • 3-Day Rounds. Players will have 3 days to complete their match against each opponent.
  • You MUST check in on Limitless and contact your opponent within the first 24 hours of the round or you will receive the loss.
  • Any matches without results reported by end of the round will be scored a double loss.


Deck Sharing ON: The Deck List Sharing feature must always be turned ON in the game settings.

Match Timers ON: When you challenge your opponent you must always enable the Timed Match option.

Going First/Second: The winner of the coin flip decides who goes first for Game 1. For Games 2 & 3 in best-of-three matches, the loser of the prior game gets to decide who goes first. (In cases where the winner of the previous game wins the coin flip and selects the wrong option by accident, the opponent is entitled to request a restart of the affected game).

Wrong Deck Selected: If a player chooses the wrong deck by accident, they must declare so immediately before any actions are taken. If Deck Sharing is on, the opposing player should be able to verify that the deck was in fact incorrect and the game should be replayed. If any conditions above are not met, the result is a game loss.

Illegal Decklist: If a player is discovered to have submitted a deck that does not comply with the rules, they will be dropped from the event without exception. It is the player’s responsibility to submit a legal decklist in advance; no changes of any kind are allowed once the event has started.

Disconnections/Leaving a Game: In the event of a disconnect, the timer will continue to run while the player attempts to reconnect. If the game ends the match due to inactivity or a player leaves the game for any other reason, it is considered a game loss.

Incomplete Matches: At the end of a scheduled round, any incomplete matches will be automatically scored a double loss.

Need Help?: Please notify the organizer immediately if you have any concerns. Use the Request a Judge button here on Limitless or get in touch with @rabidragon on our league's Discord.
