Well, due to the plea of many little young ones, WotC finally give the OK to use Fossil and Rocket cards at the Super Trainer Showdown in Long Beach CA. I was FedEx'd a letter explaining it all. If you want to read it, then keep on reading. [slight pause] Yeah.
In the Super Trainer Showdown?
Dear Master Trainers,
It's true! Due to the amazing customer feedback we've received, we have decided to include the Fossil and Team Rocket expansions in the Pokémon card sets that you can use at the Super Trainer Showdown taking place at the Queen Mary, July 22. All age groups can use Base Set, Base Set 2, Jungle, Fossil, and Team Rocket expansion cards. In addition, you can use all promo cards that have been produced by Wizards off the Coast as well.
We feel that this will create the most exciting and interesting play experience for all of the Master Trainers coming to the Super Trainer Showdown.
Good luck, Master Trainers, and have a great time!

Well, this was just about the FedEx'd letter they sent to me. Rejoice, it's official!
Also in the FedEx package was a blue sheet, explaining more of the STS rules.
The Super Trainer Showdown tournament rules are very similar to the Pokémon Mall Tour Qualifier rules with slight modifications to accommodate the swiss format.

Well, it does clear up a lot of questions I had with the STS, except for one... I wonder if I can use French cards in my deck (since I bought all that Pokémon TCG stuff when I went to Europe)... I guess I'd better ask! :D
