Official Coin Dice

Stores began to sell Official Coin Dice (Japanese: オフィシャルコインサイコロ) from December 16, 2011 as an official option for players preferring to use dice instead of coins when playing matches. Even numbers equate to heads and odd numbers equate to tails. This is further accentuated by the designs on each die: the Poké Ball die has colored designs for even values and a grey outline for odd values. Pikachu's head is featured on even values while its tail is on odd values.

Spring Tournament merchandise

Pokémon Centers and participating Gym Challenge venues held official Spring Tournaments between April 7 and 30, 2012. These events offered two match types in which people could participate: the Hydreigon & Garchomp Cup and the Gym Challenge Cup. People participating in the Hydreigon & Garchomp Cup could enter one of two divisions: the Elementary School and Below League, tournaments consisting of 3-Prize card matches played with 30-card decks, or the Open League, tournaments with no age limit consisting of full 6-Prize card matches played with 60-card decks. Those placing first following the conclusion of each tournament were given 5 series 2 promotional Gym Challenge packs; those placing second were given 3 packs; and those placing third were given 1 pack. The Gym Challenge Cup consisted of three age divisions: the Elementary School and Below League, the Junior High School and Above League, and the Open League. All divisions used full 60-card decks but used different formats: the two age-limited divisions used an equivalent of the Standard format (BW-on) while the Open League used an equivalent of the Expanded format called Hall of Fame regulation (DP-on). Those placing first were given 5 promotional Gym Challenge packs from a range of series 1 to 3 in addition to a bye in the main World Challenge Tournament in their local Battle Carnival 2012 Spring venue. Those placing second were given 3 packs and those placing third were given 1 pack.

Participants in either event were given an exclusive teal-colored Rayquaza coin. A set of Mirror Holofoil Drifblim and Altaria promotional cards were also given away with the purchase of a Garchomp Half Deck or Hydreigon Half Deck at stores while Spring Tournaments were in progress.

Battle Carnival 2012 Spring merchandise

The first Battle Carnival event of 2012, and the second of its kind, was held at four different locations across Japan: at the Sendai Sun Plaza, Sendai on May 3, 2012; at Pacifico Yokohama, Yokohama on May 12 and 13, 2012; at Port Messe Nagoya, Nagoya on May 20, 2012; and at Intex Osaka, Osaka on June 3, 2012. Like the first Battle Carnival, each venue held numerous events for people to participate in, from introductory demonstrations to competitive battling. Each venue offered prizes that could not be obtained elsewhere as well as exclusive merchandise.

All people visiting a Battle Carnival venue were given a Tinsel Holofoil coin featuring Rayquaza upon entry. Stores present at these venues sold event-exclusive Official Carnival 2012 Spring Deck Cases (Japanese: オフィシャルデッキケース carnival2012sp) and packs of 32 Official Carnival 2012 Spring Sleeves (Japanese: オフィシャルデッキシールド carnival2012sp Official Deck Shield: Carnival 2012 sp), each of which feature the key visual created for the event by Hitoshi Ariga. The illustration prominently features Rayquaza and Hydreigon in an amphitheatre watched by a Pikachu riding an Altaria. A Giratina looms on the upper steps, while a Haxorus and Garchomp battle below. Latias and Latios soar in the sky overhead. A set of Mirror Holofoil Drifblim and Altaria promotional cards were also given away with the purchase of a Garchomp Half Deck or Hydreigon Half Deck at these stores.

People new to the TCG could take part in the Beginner's Classroom and were given a sticker featuring the Battle Carnival key visual for doing so. Those more familiar with the game could participate in the Experience Battle, earning a Jumbo Rayquaza promotional card in the process. This event comprised two leagues: the Elementary School League, limited to children of elementary school age and below, and the Parent-Child League, where children of at least elementary school age could team up with a parent or guardian in 2-on-2 matches. Winners in each of these leagues were given a set of 4 random basic Energy cards. Other smaller events consisted of the How to Make a Deck Classroom, in which participants earned a Deck Advance Sheet, as well as the Victory Battle and Gym Leader Challenge, each of which awarded promotional Gym Challenge packs to those who won a match. A Commemorative Photo Service Corner was also present at each venue, where a group or person could have their photograph taken in front of a board with the Battle Carnival logo and then have the image printed on an exclusive Jumbo Pokémon Card Game Trainer promotional card.

The main competitive event was the World Challenge Tournament, which offered a place at the 2012 World Championships for those who won in each age division at each venue. These age divisions comprised an A League, open to those born after 2001, and a B League, open to those born before 2000. The Yokohama venue also held an O League, which was open to competitors of all ages. All participants of the World Challenge Tournament were given a set of Purrloin and Kyurem promotional cards and could earn another set of promotional Max Potion and Enhanced Hammer cards by reaching the Premier Stage, which required three consecutive wins at the initial Challenge Stage. The top 16 players following the culmination of the Premier Stage would progress to the knockout Climax Stage to determine an overall champion. The top three players in each age division were given gold, silver, or bronze Victory Cup promotional cards depending on their position.

Additional prizes were given away while meeting certain criteria at venues. People using 1 or more Team Plasma card in their deck while playing a match were given a Plasma Gale Clear File. People showing the long card box from Master Deck Build Boxes to attendants while participating in a match were given a pack of 62 Skyla Metallic Version Sleeves (Japanese: デッキシールド フウロ メタリックver.

Battle Carnival 2012 Autumn merchandise

The second Battle Carnival of 2012 was held in three locations in Japan: at AXES Sapporo, Sapporo on November 4, 2012; at Intex Osaka, Osaka on November 17, 2012; and at the Tokyo International Exhibition Center, Tokyo on November 23 and 24, 2012. All visitors at each venue were given an event-exclusive Team Plasma coin. Exclusive merchandise could also be purchased at stores present at each venue, including packs of 32 Official Carnival 2012 Autumn Sleeves (Japanese: オフィシャルデッキシールド carnival2012at Official Deck Shield: Carnival 2012 at) that feature a split front view of Black and White Kyurem. Two new products, the Official Black Deck Case Holder (Japanese: オフィシャルデッキケースホルダー ブラック) and the Official White Deck Case Holder (Japanese: オフィシャルデッキケースホルダー ホワイト), could be purchased from stores present at each venue as well as Pokémon Centers starting November 4, 2012. Packs of 62 Skyla Metallic Version Sleeves, first available at Autumn Tournaments in October, were also given to people that presented the long card box from Master Deck Build Boxes to attendants.

The main event held at each venue was the 2012 Victory Cup, which had two age divisions: the Junior League, open to elementary school students and below, and the Open League, open to players of any age. Competitors began at the Challenge Stage and could progress to the Premier Stage by recording 3 consecutive match wins. Players would then face each other in a number of matches to determine the top 8, who would then progress to the single-elimination Climax Stage. All participants of the 2012 Victory Cup received promotional Tympole and Landorus cards, while those reaching the Premier Stage earned a promotional Team Plasma Badge card. The top 3 players at the end of the Climax Stage were each given a Victory Cup promotional card mounted in an acrylic trophy stand, with varying designs based on their overall position. The overall winner from each venue would earn the right to play in the 2012 Victory Cup Best in Japan Battle in their age division, held on the second day of the Tokyo event. The Tokyo event also held the 2012 Victory Cup Last Challenge Qualifier on the second day as a final opportunity for players to enter the Best in Japan Battle. All participants of this event were also given Tympole and Landorus promotional cards.

Other events available to challenge at these venues comprised the Hall of Fame Battle, which used an equivalent of the Expanded format (DP-on) and offered Palace Belt promotional cards to those who won 3 consecutive matches; the Join Team Plasma Battle, which offered regular copies of Plasma Energy from Plasma Gale to those who won a match; and the Open Gym, which allowed players to host their own tournament with bespoke rules that other players could participate in. Promotional Gym Challenge packs were given to hosts and the top 3 players of each tournament. Several events that catered for beginners were also held at each venue and offered prizes to participants: those who took part in the Beginner's Classroom were given a Battle Record Book; those taking part in the How to Make a Deck Classroom were given a Deck Advance Sheet; and those taking part in the WAKUWAKU Team Battle were each given a promotional Gym Challenge pack. Sheets given to those taking part in matches had a box that opponents could tick if they felt a player had good manners during play. Attendants would regularly check these and give out stickers featuring Black Kyurem and White Kyurem to players deemed to have had good manners by their opponents.

Battle Carnival 2013 Spring merchandise

The fourth and final Battle Carnival was the last major domestic event to be held during the BW Era, and was held in four locations across Japan: at the Fukuoka International Congress Center, Fukuoka on May 4, 2013; at the Nagoya Trade & Industry Center, Nagoya on May 12, 2013; at Makuhari Messe, Chiba on May 18 and 19, 2013; and at Intex Osaka, Osaka on May 26, 2013. Each venue held one main competitive tournament plus a number of smaller side events, ranging from beginner classrooms through to mini tournaments.

The main event at each venue was the World Challenge Tournament, in which players vied for a place to represent their country in the upcoming 2013 World Championships held in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. There were two divisions for people to enter at all venues: the A League, open to those born after 2002, and the B League, open to those born before 2001. The Chiba event had two more divisions: the U League, open to those under 19 years of age (born on or after May 19, 1993), and the O League, open to all ages. The A, B, and U Leagues all used an equivalent of the Standard format (BW-on), whereas the O League used an equivalent of the Expanded format (DP-on). All participants were awarded a promotional Mew card regardless of their progress in the tournament. All players began at the 'Challenge Stage' and could advance to the 'Premier Stage' by achieving 4 consecutive match wins. Players reaching the 'Premier Stage' were also awarded a promotional print of Silver Mirror. The 'Premier Stage' consisted of multiple 4-player mini knockout tournaments and the winners of each would go onto the knockout 'Climax Stage' to determine the World Challenge Tournament champion in each division, who would earn a place at the 2013 World Championships. The top three players in each division were also awarded Mewtwo-EX and Victory Cup promotional cards.

This Battle Carnival introduced the PokéCard Point system, an added incentive to get people involved in some of the side events. By participating and performing well in these events, people could earn PokéCard Points that could be exchanged for exclusive items. This would continue as the Play Point system in future events and has since become a long-standing method of promotional card redemption. Eligible side events included the 3 on 3 Battle, the Limited Battle, the One Day Battle, and the Gym Leader & Team Plasma Challenge. 1 PokéCard Point could be exchanged for a promotional print of 1 of the 8 basic Energy cards or 10 PokéCard Points could be exchanged for a Darkrai-EX promotional card. Those accumulating 20 PokéCard Points could redeem them for a full-color illustration made by one of the guest TCG artists present at each of the venues. These items were extremely limited and were available on a first come, first served basis. While not included as eligible PokéCard Point events, participants of the Beginner's Classroom and How to Make a Deck Classroom were respectively given Battle Record Books and Deck Advance Sheets.

Each venue also offered exclusive items in addition to the promotional cards on hand. All visitors were given a Blastoise coin upon entry, as well as a sticker featuring Genesect, Mewtwo, and Darkrai, and a Toyopet road safety sticker featuring Pikachu and Oshawott themed cars. Toyopet also sponsored the good manner award, in which opponents determined whether or not they conducted a match in an appropriate manner. Players deemed to have played in such a way were also given a mini clear file featuring Genesect, Mewtwo, and Darkrai. An Original Deck Case featuring Blastoise and Kyurem, first available at Spring Battle events in April, was given to people that presented the Strongest Expert Guide from Blastoise + Kyurem-EX Combo Decks to attendants.
