By TDmonthly Staff
October 2020

A new Ranked Battles series is kicking off November 1, and Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield Trainers need to know which Pokémon can be included on their teams. The Series 7 regulations will also be in effect for the Pokémon Players Cup II Region Qualifiers and upcoming Pokémon Video Game Championship events.


For Series 7, Pokémon that were banned in Series 6 will return, making all Pokémon that were legal in Series 5 usable once again. Although Mythical Pokémon remain excluded, many Pokémon from The Crown Tundra will now be allowed—including a large number of Legendary Pokémon, though some of them will not have Crown Tundra Pokédex numbers.

For a summary of all Video Game Championships tournament rules, see below.
