The Third Official Certification Exam will be held in September 2021!
Details will be announced by late August on the Official Pokemon Website and Facebook account.
In preparation for the exam, we will release preparatory drills starting mid-July.
Take on the Drills on July and August!
(Free of charge)
We will greatly expand the drills where you can test your Card game rules knowledge!
This is the best chance to check how much of the required knowledge you have in order to have a Pokemon Card Game match.
Correctly knowing the rules
Rules questions are mainly from Pokemon Card Game basic rules and card text from cards in the Advanced Player's Guide book.
We are aiming for participants in self-judged official Tournaments that can progress the matches with a basis on correct rules understanding, especially regarding the resolution of Special Conditions, damage calculation following the card text of cards in play and effect resolution.
Knowing the rules correctly isn't just for passing the Official Certification Exam, it is also an important skill in order to become an even stronger tournament player.
What kind of questions are rules questions?
The questions in the drills and in the Official Certification Exam are kind of like this:
Don't calculate for the Weakness and Resistance of the Pokémon taking damage.
（1）180 （2）240 （3）190 （4）200
（1）You discard your hand first.
（2）You pick Prize cards and then discard your hand.
（3）You can choose the order.
（4）After picking Prize cards, discard cards from your hand equal to the original number of cards you had in your hand before picking Prize cards.
