Pokemon Sealed Deck Format Rules

October 2003-2004 Edition

This document is used in conjunction with the Pokémon Organized Play Floor Rules document. The suggested format for a Pokémon Sealed Deck format is 6 boosters of Pokémon-e TCG: EX Ruby and Sapphire. Other expansion sets are allowed for purposes of Limited format tournaments, as long as each player has the same number of boosters from the same expansions.

Setting up a Sealed Deck Tournament

The tournament organizer registers each player for the event, similar to a constructed tournament. Once registration is finished, the tournament organizer assigns seating for all players. Players will then receive their boosters with which to construct their 40-card deck. Players may only use the cards they have received in their booster packs, and any basic Energy cards necessary to finish building the deck. Any cards that are not used in their deck are set aside for the remainder of the event. Tournament officials will announce at the beginning of the event if decklists are required for the event.

Player Etiquette for Sealed Deck

During the deck building portion of the tournament, players should not be talking or offering other distractions. Players may not trade cards received in their sealed deck, until after the event is over.

Playing in a Sealed Deck Tournament

The event works very similar to a constructed deck tournament. The only differences are that players use 40-card decks and put 4 Prize cards out for each game. is here to provide guidance to all Pokemon trainers out there.  Whether it's the Gameboy Game, N64 or the Trading Card Game, provides all the wisdom you desire.
