Rules reguarding the Modified format can be found in the Pokemon Organized Play Floor Rules (http://op.pokemon-tcg.com/tournaments/pdfs/Pokemon%20Organized%20Play%20Floor%20Rules.pdf) (requires Adobe Acrobat Reader to view). Basically this is the Modified Format:

Modified Constructed Deck Format
Modified decks may include cards from the following Pokmon trading card game sets:
Expedition expansion
Aquapolis expansion
Skyridge expansion
EX Ruby & Sapphire expansion
EX Sandstorm expansion
EX Dragon expansion
Any new post-EX Dragon expansion
Promotional cards numbered 001 and higher
With the exception of basic Energy cards and previously printed cards that appear in current sets, players may not use cards from older Pokmon sets. New sets are allowed as soon as the product has been released.

The Modified format isn't a madatory way to play, it is only one of the sanctionable formats for official tournaments. If your talking about the normal deck restrictions (60-cards, no more, no less; no more than 4 of any same card title, etc.) that information can be found on page 15 of the EX: Dragon rule book. Hope this helps,
