==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 {{TCG|Standard format}} (BW-on) while the Open League used an equivalent of the {{TCG|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 {{p|Rayquaza}} {{TCG|coin}}. A set of Mirror Holofoil {{TCG ID|BW-P Promo|Drifblim|147}} and {{TCG ID|BW-P Promo|Altaria|148}} promotional cards were also given away with the purchase of a {{TCG|Garchomp Half Deck}} or {{TCG|Hydreigon Half Deck}} at stores while Spring Tournaments were in progress.

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 {{TCG|coin}} featuring {{p|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]].

Those more familiar with the game could participate in the Experience Battle, earning a Jumbo {{TCG ID|BW-P|Rayquaza|Promo}} 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 {{TCG|Energy card}}s. 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 {{TCG ID|BW-P|Pokémon Card Game Trainer|Promo}} 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 {{TCG ID|BW-P Promo|Purrloin|149}} and {{TCG ID|BW-P Promo|Kyurem|150}} promotional cards and could earn another set of promotional {{TCG ID|BW-P|Max Potion|Promo}} and {{TCG ID|BW-P|Enhanced Hammer|Promo}} 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 {{TCG ID|BW-P|Victory Cup|Promo}} promotional cards depending on their position.

==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 {{wp|Vancouver}}, {{wp|British Columbia}}, {{pmin|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 {{TCG|Standard format}} (BW-on), whereas the O League used an equivalent of the {{TCG|Expanded format}} (DP-on). All participants were awarded a promotional {{TCG ID|BW-P Promo|Mew|220}} 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 {{TCG ID|BW-P|Silver Mirror|Promo}}. 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 {{TCG ID|BW-P|Mewtwo-EX|Promo}} and {{TCG ID|BW-P|Victory Cup|Promo}} 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 {{TCG|Energy card}}s or 10 PokéCard Points could be exchanged for a {{TCG ID|BW-P|Darkrai-EX|Promo}} 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 {{p|Blastoise}} {{TCG|coin}} upon entry, as well as a sticker featuring {{p|Genesect}}, {{p|Mewtwo}}, and {{p|Darkrai}}, and a Toyopet road safety sticker featuring {{p|Pikachu}} and {{p|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 {{p|Kyurem}}, first available at Spring Battle events in April, was given to people that presented the Strongest Expert Guide from {{TCG|Blastoise + Kyurem-EX Combo Deck}}s to attendants.
