CardBoard Warriors Season 1

We are launching the first season of our Gym Leader Challenge competition. Compete to see who is the very best! Winning a tournament and placing #1 in your chosen type to enter our hall of fame and receive your very own custom gym badge!

How to Enter

CardBoard Warriors hosts weekly tournaments in alternating timeslots. Every two weeks you will have a chance to gain points on one of the leaderboards, either Europe or Americas. There is absolutely nothing stopping you from competing in both! To get on the leaderboard, all you have to do is sign up for one of our tournaments and compete. We will use your Limitless account name as your leaderboard name. The morning after the tournament is complete, check back on the leaderboard to see where you measure up!


Gym Leader Challenge is a singleton format with the following rules:

  • A single type of Pokémon allowed per deck (only water, only fire, etc.)
  • Singleton format, i.e. one of each card with the same name in your deck. You may not have more than one Genesect card, for example. However, Shining Genesect and Genesect may exist in the same deck because they have different names.
  • Cards with a rule box are prohibited (EX, GX, V, VMax, Prism Star, etc.)
  • Ace Spec cards are prohibited
  • Legal sets include Black & White sets to present day.
  • 60 cards per deck
  • 6 prizes


The scoring system will mirror what you see in the tournament results in Limitless. Three points are awarded for wins, one point for a draw, and no points for a loss. This scoring system encourages participants to stick it out in the tournament. Have a bad start at 0-2? No worries, hang in there and get three more wins to climb the leaderboard!


At the end of the season, September 8th, we will crown the winners and have our first inductees into the CardBoard Warriors Hall of Fame! Those who win a tournament and top that leaderboard type will receive a special gym badge at the end of the season and be declared a Gym Leader. A trainer may only be a Gym Leader of a single type at a time, so in the event of a trainer leading multiple types, they will need to choose which type they want to represent.

And finally, the trainer with the most points on the overall leaderboard (one from each region) will enter the Hall of Fame. We will interview those entering the Hall of Fame and dedicate space to them in our (soon to come) Hall of Fame page.

Coming Next

At the end of the year, with the conclusion of our second season, we will have a special invitational tournament. If you want to participate, hit the tournament scene and begin grinding!
