Players will be required to gain an advantage in number of remaining Pokémon over their opponent.

After each turn has completed, the tournament staff will determine the number of Pokémon that each player has remaining.

* If a player has more remaining Pokémon than his or her opponent at the end of any turn, that player wins the game.

The use of external devices to alter the Pokémon is expressly forbidden. Random checks will be performed throughout and after the tournament to determine whether or not an external device has been used to modify a player's Pokémon. Players found to have Pokémon that have been tampered with will be disqualified from the event without prizes, regardless of whether the player tampered with his or her game or received a Pokémon or item that was tampered with by someone other than the player. It is the player's responsibility to have legal Pokémon. Event officials have the final determination regarding the legality of a Pokémon. In the event where prizes are awarded and after the completion of the tournament it is found that the use of an external device had been used, the player must forfeit any and all prizes awarded back to the tournament organizer. Failure to comply may lead to legal action to acquire the items given as per the rules stated at the cost of the offending party.
A player should notify the staff immediately if he or she believes that there is a problem with an opponent's Pokémon. At the end of the round, all match results become final. Issues that go unreported until after the round has completed will not change the result of that match, regardless of whether there is a problem with an opponent's Pokémon.
Players and spectators are expected to demonstrate proper sportsmanship over the course of the event. A player may be disqualified from the event based on actions taken by friends or relatives who disrupt the operation of the tournament.
