2012-13 Season is Black & White-on
Friday, June 15th, 2012 @ 3 PM, UTC -  By: Water Pokémon Master

TPCi has just announced that the 2012-2013 season will be in the Black & White-on format. Also announced is that the 2013 season will start on July 9th rather in September so that players can start working toward earning points for the upcoming year. However, the typical set rotation won’t take place until September 1st to avoid confusion.

Changes to the Play! Pokémon Modified format for the 2013 tournament season have been announced.

Effective: 9/1/2012

In the interest of maintaining a healthy tournament environment, Pokémon Organized Play removes older sets from the Modified format at the beginning of each new tournament season. Each rotation challenges existing players to create new strategies while enabling new players to get into Organized Play with a minimal investment.

The 2013 season will be starting on July 9th so that players can get an early start on working towards the 2013 Pokémon World Championships, but in order to avoid confusion we will rotate sets on the more familiar date of September 1st.

The 2012 Pokémon World Championships being held on August 10th–12th in Waikoloa, Hawaii, will use the 2012 format and rules as are currently listed.
