    Hey, I've got a question:
    In the "rate my deck" part of the forum I had a discussion about the number of pokemon types that you can have in a deck...
    a user said that the second classified at TCG World Championships had six different types of Pokemon in his deck. I'm Italian, and in a tournament at the pokemon day I won because at the table, so a told me staff member, the opponent had more than three types of Pokemon in his deck ... so: the rules are different from country to country? who is right between me and the other participant in the discussion?

    Hey, total TCG newb! I used to collect cards years ago...still have them - but only as a collector, I've now started playing...I mean literally a few days ago...and I have a few questions

    - The deck I'm using is Platinum:Arceus and I'd like to customise it - what sets can I use?
    - I thought I was fairly up to scratch on the rules and played through the learners demo at the TCG site, but the question bruno asks above - what does that mean? I wasn't aware you could only have a certain number of different types of pokemon in your deck, I thought it was no more than 4 of any same (name) pokemon but other than that whichever you liked as long as you stick to 60 cards.

    Thanks!

    Yes, the rules are different from country to country as the the number of Pokemon Types.

    You can use decks HG/SS Base Set and newer to customize it.

    Sorry, what does modified format mean in relation to cards?

    Thank you both!

    ETA: Can I use energies from any sets, or do they have to be HG/SS and newer too?

    hey, in the Pokemon TCG help thread told me that the rules are different country by country, so in italy you can't have more than 3 types of pokemon in your deck but in USA you can. I think it's not fair for the world championship because an italian player has a no-more-3-types deck... the rules must be rewritten, 1 copy for all countries!

    Energies - any sets
    Modified - using customized sets that are HG/SS and newer, plus the sets and promos that Skitty on Wailord listed

    (fyi Unlimited is what uses all decks)

    Thanks again to both of you. I'm going to get a Black & White deck so I can register with the local league, but I'm really liking my Platinum custom deck so far.

    I've got mainly electric/psychic pokemon so I'm thinking I'll stick with that as my main theme - is it wise to have a few other types in there? My only concern is that then you have to stock up on other types of energies. Basically, what are the main points you need to think of when deck building?

    It is recommended to have 2 types, if you want to have more it's okay.

    Keep a good balance of Pokemon, energy, trainer, and supporter cards.

    Think of what Trainer and Supporter cards work best with your deck.

    I agree. I only know rules for NA, UK and Japan. Having different rules for just Italy (and maybe a few other countries over there?) is pretty strange. But at least we got the answer.
    And you said that the Italian rulebook says it too? Can you PM me a picture or screenshot of that page? I would like to bring it up with a few other judges I know.

    What????? try to do that deck on the TCG online and you'll see that it is illegal: a deck can't have more than 3 types as the instruction book says
    And as a judge I'm like wtf, you talking aboot? There is no limitation to the amount of type's you can put into your deck providing the type, such deck's as six corner's etc, etc would then be considered banned, however if that where possible that we considered favoritism and thats just plain stupid. If this is true consider going to a league or talking to a TO, PTO, or judge to get a second ruling on that, as you are allowed to enter into worlds it makes sense to have the same ruling's.


    deck edit, E. retrieval, yes I see you have great on field energy strategy but what about deck's that discard energy, considering that in theory these are heavy energy type's, and how about a cobalion from NV?

    Um, no they're not, because if they were then how does every country compete at worlds with the same rule's? doesn't exist.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the rules that were stated were stated by someone who has no idea how the tcg ruling system works.

    Though it is unlikely, it could be possable. Just like how Japan can use far more more different cards while they have to use only what's available to NA at Worlds. And how in Yugioh Woulds (though a bit off-topic) Japanese players must go with NA rulings when they come up, which can very quite alot sometimes.

    But I'm not going to complely beleave it myself until I see a scan or picture of an Italian rulebook that says so (as I asked brunodefilippo for a few days ago). Though it does seem strange that pokemon.com/it/ doesn't have a scan of the rulebook like NA does, so I'm not sure.

    Thats true that the japanese are lucky and everything happens to them faster then the rest of us (even though we're only a boat ride away). It would make more sense to have the rule's the same due to an Internet community and to keep thing's simple.

    I agree, it does seem strange.

    So, I downloaded the new TCGO thing and was playing through the single stuff to unlock cards etc, go back to play today and none of my gameplay has been saved. Is this a glitch or is the single player mode not save-able and just for practise?

    The new download TCGO isn't really 100% working yet from what I've seen.

    With it being Beta mode still, during maitenance time sometimes the data gets lost.

    It has happened to me several times.

    So what are you doing personally, waiting or doesn't it bother you replaying?

    I wait for the maitenance to be over, and then begin where I left off before the maitenence.

    I do get frustrated when it doesn't save, but I don't mind doing it over again.
