Tournament is sponsored by Card Cavern Trading Cards

Matches for this tournament are to be played on the Pokemon Trading Card Game Online client.


Register for the tournament & submit your decklist here on Limitless prior to the start of the event.

IMPORTANT: This is NOT a live event! It features 3-day rounds, meaning once a round is paired all players will have 3 days to complete the match with their opponent. Players are responsible for timely contact with their opponent to coordinate a time to play. If you are missing matches/check-ins or are non-responsive to messages from your opponents, you may be dropped without warning at the organizer's discretion.


Modified Expanded Framework: In addition to the rules below, your deck must always remain legal in the TCG's Expanded format.


Eligible Pokemon for this event are the Pokemon that were originally exclusive to one video game in their debut generation.

When deck-building, you must choose just one game from each of the eight generations of games as seen below. For each generation, you may use Pokemon listed under the game that you chose.

Generation 1: Choose Red or Blue


Generation 2: Choose Gold or Silver


Generation 3: Choose Ruby or Sapphire


Generation 4: Choose Diamond or Pearl


Generation 5: Choose Black or White


Generation 6: Choose X or Y

  • No more than 1 Pokemon V
  • No more than 2 Pokemon GX
  • No more than 3 Pokemon EX
  • BREAKS & Prism Stars are allowed (no quantity restrictions).
  • TAG TEAMS are NOT allowed.


All Expanded-legal Trainers are allowed in any quantity.


Basic Energy is allowed and may be used in any quantity.

SWISS (BO3) with 3-Day Rounds: Players will have three 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.

Wins are worth 1 point. No points are given for ties or losses.

Any matches without results reported by end of the round will be scored a tie. If there is no sign of activity you will be dropped.

TOP CUT (BO3): Following the Swiss phase, the top players will advance to a single-elimination bracket.


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.

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#3983 or @Bca7903#6060 on our league's Discord.
