Event info
  • The event consists of nine Swiss rounds with a Top 16 single-elimination cut. All rounds are best-of-one. 
  • The current Japanese format is similar to our Team Up-on format, but because of differences in Japanese sets, some commonly used Standard cards such as Jirachi, Tapu Koko Prism Star, Absol, and Incineroar-GX have rotated, and some cards we do not have yet (such as Blaziken VMAX) are legal.
