Today, Play! Pokémon revealed the rules for the 2011-2012 Pokémon Organised Play TCG and Video Game tournament formats:

While Jirachi has not been seen on the list, Video Game Event Planner Mike Liesik has confirmed the lack-of-listing was in error.

Video Games:

The Video Game rules and clauses remain the same as the 2011 Video Game Championship events, however, the move Dark Void is now banned, making it the first move to be banned for reasons other than a glitch. Aside from the following, all Pokémon numbered 001-646 are eligible for use:

- Mewtwo

- Mew

- Lugia

- Ho-Oh

- Celebi

- Groudon

- Kyogre

- Rayquaza

- Jirachi

- Deoxys

- Dialga

- Palkia

- Giratina

- Phione

- Manaphy

- Darkrai

- Shaymin

- Arceus

- Victini

- Reshiram

- Zekrom

- Kyurem

Also, the Wonder Launcher may not be used (although it was not used in this year's events, no rule stated as such).

Trading Card Game:

The Trading Card Game continues with its HeartGold & SoulSilver onwards rotation that was introduced earlier this year.

Full details about the running of the events and the different formats can be read in the full PDF below.
