The 2023-24 Standard format of the Pokémon Trading Card Game is the current Standard format. It has been used (alongside the current Expanded format) for Play! Pokémon organized play and in most sanctioned tournaments worldwide since April 14, 2023. It is also used in the Pokémon Trading Card Game Online and Pokémon TCG Live. This was the first standard rotation where cards were rotated out based on the regulation mark of the card, rather than by what set they belonged to.

Play period

The 2021-22 Standard format was announced on December 12, 2022, rotating out cards with the D regulation mark.

  • Worldwide: April 14, 2023 to present

Rule changes

Cards with the D regulation mark are rotated out. Cards with a E, F, G or later regulation mark remain legal.

The Scarlet & Violet era introduced Pokémon Tool cards as a distinct class of Trainer separate from Item cards. As such starting in this standard format, any Pokémon tool cards from the Sword and Shield era receive errata and are no longer considered item cards in play.

Sword & Shield Series
