The official competition rules have also been posted on Nintendo.com.au. The rules appear to be a modified version of Pokemon.com's Play! Pokémon Tournament Rules. A notable difference is that Nintendo Australia is permitting players to change their team lineups between rounds.
Also of note is the fact that point 1 states that "Pokémon Black Version 2, Pokémon White Version 2, Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version Game Cards can be used", however point 7.1 contradicts this and states "Only Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2 Game Cards are permitted for use.". It is recommended that hopeful competitors adhere to rule 7.1 to avoid disappointment if Pokémon Black and Pokémon White end up not being allowed on the day.
