Additional Information
Format Information: With the release of the Pokémon Trading Card Game: Black & White expansion in April, players will see some changes to the TCG rules. With so many different cards interacting with the new rules, Pokémon Organized Play will be taking extra care to ensure the competitive environment remains as fun and fair as it has always been for our players.

To provide a fun, positive tournament experience for all Play! Pokémon members, Australia will not incorporate rules and cards from the Pokémon TCG: Black & White expansion for this event. This means that the following sets will be legal, and the tournament will be played per the rules of the CALL OF LEGENDS rule book.
