Pokemon TCG 2014 Rotation + New Tournament Format for 2015


Every year the Trading Card Game has an annual rotation. For those who might not know, rotation is when where olders sets are no longer legal to use in what’s known as the Modified format, which is also the format which all sanctioned tournament play uses. Right now, every set of Black and White cards are legal to play, but on August 28th, 2013 Only the format will officially cut three sets out of the current rotation: Black & White, Emerging Powers, and Noble Victories. There was also mention of  a new format being introduced alongside the usual modified format rotation, coming next year at the beginning of the 2015 season that will widen the card pool considerably.  What does this all mean? Take the jump for more information.


On August 28th, only cards from the following sets will be allowed for Modified Format:

Black & White—Next Destinies

Black & White—Dark Explorers Black & White—Dark Explorers

Black & White—Dragons Exalted Black & White—Dragons Exalted

Black & White—Boundaries Crossed Black & White—Boundaries Crossed

Black & White—Plasma Storm Black & White—Plasma Storm

Black & White—Plasma Freeze Black & White—Plasma Freeze

Black & White—Plasma Blast Black & White—Plasma Blast

Black & White—Dragon Vault Black & White—Dragon Vault

Black Star Promo cards Black Star Promo Cards BW33 and higher.

Black Star Promo cards McDonald’s Collection

Keep in mind that this is when playing in Modified Format. If you’re just playing against your friends for fun, then there is nothing stopping you from playing any card as long as they agree to it. The Pokemon Trading Card Game Online also has an Unlimited Format option for those who want to build upon their old decks with the newer cards.

The announcement also came with news about the future of the Trading Card Game. A second tournament format was announced for the 2015 season that would allow all formats from the Base set of Black and White-on. With the 2014 season just starting on July 9th, it will be awhile before this we will see this format in action, but with a card pool that will be most likely close to twice as large as it’s modified counterpart, it will be very interesting seeing what type of decks that come out of it. It also good news for competitive players, as their cards will now be more of a long-term investment.
