Types of coins: P!P requirements for dice used as coins
A coin can be a real, monetary coin, a special metal, or a cardboard disc with a Pokémon on it, or any small, flat object that has the same chance of landing on either of two sides when flipped. Coins that are not official Pokémon merchandise and supplied expressly for use in the Trading Card Game are not allowed in sanctioned events.
Sometimes, the player may prefer to use a {{wp|Dice|die}} rather than a coin, with even numbers representing heads and odd numbers representing tails.

Dice are generally preferred over coins by tournament players because of their ease of use.
Official Pokémon dice to be used in lieu of coins are often distributed at larger organized play events, such as State/Province/Territory Championships and Regional Championships.
