{{bulbanews|Play! Pokémon announces early TCG rotation to HGSS-on}}
* This format features the first (and thus far only) early rotation in the Pokémon Trading Card Game's history. This likely came about in response to the heavy controversy surrounding {{TCG|Black & White}}'s {{tt|first-turn rule|While Trainer and Supporter cards previously could not be played on the first turn of the game, Black & White changed the rule to allow this, effectively removing all restrictions for whoever goes first in a game.}} in the previous format, with cards like [[Sableye (Stormfront 48)|Sableye]] creating a metagame that many players felt was too unbalanced and luck-based to be at all enjoyable.
