Standard Format Rotation Information

For the last few years, the Pokémon TCG Standard format rotation has occurred in either August or September. However, the next rotation will not occur until early 2023. This means that cards with the “D” regulation mark can be used at the 2022 Pokémon TCG World Championships. The newest expansion that will be legal for play at this event will be the Pokémon TCG: Pokémon GO expansion.

The exact date for the next Pokémon TCG Standard format rotation will be announced later. As stated in the 2022 Pokémon TCG Championship Series Season Format Rotation article, when the next rotation occurs, all cards with the “D” regulation mark will be removed from the Standard format.
