I'm about to start looking into playing the Pokémon TGC but I've got a question first - I was looking into ban lists and saw this;

There aren't banned cards. You can use any officially released card.

However, there have been a multitude of sets released, and usually only the most recent cycle or two are tournament-legal. If you're just going to play with friends, get whatever you want, but try to get them from the same 2 or 3 sets that were released in a row; if you want to play in tournaments, you probably want to start getting the Legend series as soon as it comes out.
So two questions - does the TGC have an official ban list and as regards only using the 2 or 3 most recent sets, does that mean buying cards from earlier sets is pointless or are they still usable against newer cards?
