I am new and I don't see how format is determined when selecting versus. I only see formats listed for the deck and in tournaments

If you select 'standard' decks, the format will be standard. If you select 'expanded' decks, the format will be expanded. And so on

I can't seem to make a standard deck. I go to the deck editor and set the filter to standard on each of the 3 tabs . When I get done with the deck it shows up as Standard, expanded, and unlimited. 

 

confusing :(

Cuz all standard decks are also expanded AND unlimited. Basically, in the expanded format, you can play with both standard and expanded decks.

Standard is a format composed with cards from Break through to the last set released (now Ultra prism and soon Forbidden light)

 

Expanded is a format composed by cards from Black and White (back 2011) to the last set released. This means an extra 17 more sets (more or less) and around 2000 extra cards.

 

Legacy is a format composed by cards from Heartgold & Soulsilver (released 2010) to Legendary Treasures, the ending set of Black and White era 2013.

 

Unlimited includes every single card of the game from HGSS to the last set.

 

That means if you create a Standard deck, still all sets are comprised into the Expanded format allowed sets, and of course Unlimited as comprise all of them.

 

But if you create an Expanded deck, with any single card from B/W or the first nine XY sets/collections, as not being allowed into the Standard that could not be played in standard. Will of course be allowed to play Unlimited.

 

So it depends of what set are the cards included into your deck.

 

In addition, any reprint of a card in a newer set, will allow you to play any copy of it counting as same card. Example: Ultra ball 1st release was Dark Explorers. Then reprinted Plasma Freeze, Flashfire, Sun and Moon... so you can add a Dark Explorers Ultra ball card into an Standard deck although Dark Explorer cards are not allowed in Standard. As UB it's also printed into Sun and Moon and this is allowed in Standard, the Ultra ball is same card, just different art and you can play it, no matter the art of the card.

 

I had to find out myself when just arrived into the game :rolleyes:
