In the TCG, the Traditional Format was created around October 2004 as a counterpart to the then newly-introduced Advanced Format and its Forbidden list, since some players, especially those that had been playing for longer, still wanted to play with cards that had become Forbidden. The Traditional Format does not have a Forbidden List, instead having only Limited and Semi-Limited Lists, with all of the Forbidden cards from the Advanced Format being placed in Limited instead. The two formats are otherwise identical.
