    Annual Midnight Mutant Booster Draft @Nationals Sat. 6/28 (yes, it used to be Midnite, however we are moving that up a few hours)

    I do believe this will be our 4th Annual Mutant Draft!!!

    PokePop, Hagrid23, Chewie and waiting on Chrisbo to see if he will be stopping by for the event.

    Most of you know the drill...

    REGISTRATION: Same area that Nationals is held 9pm will be registration time
    BUILD DECK TIME: 10PM (you will have half hour to build your deck)
    START TIME: 10:30pm ish

    Entry fee: 6 packs of any set of Pokemon, yes ANY! or the cash to buy 6 packs from us which will be $20.00. I am not sure yet what boosters we will have but as we get closer to the event we will post that info here.

    Remember: Please bring cash or 6 packs of pokemon cards, as we cannot accept credit/debit cards or checks. There should be ATM machines there.

    Please PM any of us if you have any questions, We will be adding more info to this post, so please keep an eye on things.

    As for the rules....Pokepop and Chrisbo can post them here, please!

    Taken from a previous post from Pokepop:

    For those that don't know how Mutant Draft works:
    You give in your six packs of whatever set(s) or $20 entry fee.

    You're not going to play with the packs you bring or buy.
    They all go into a big kitty and then we randomly distribute them.
    You will get 6 packs back from all different sets.
    Actually, not randomly. We spread out the packs so you will probably get packs from 6 different sets.
    Because of the late hour, we will play sealed (you get 6 random packs and build a deck from them).

    How to build a deck from random packs??
    Well, evolutions can happen one of two ways:
    1. A normal evolution. Psychic Ralts from RS can evolve into Fire Kirlia from DF.
    2. Any Pokemon of a type can evolve into the next stage of that same type.
    Play Baby Azumarill (Water Type).
    Evolve into Kyogre ex
    Evolve that into Wartortle
    Evolve that into Blastoise (hey, a normal evolution!)
    Evolve that into Empoleon Lv. X

    Got it?
    Also, while we can't promise exactly what the prizes are going to be this year, last years players can vouch that they were impressive!

    All ages are welcome!!

    And we'll be aiming to finish around midnight, so we can still use midnite in the name.

    You can Level Up by type? I LIKE that ruling!!!

    But Azurill is a Normal type...

    Can I evolve a Darkrai lvl x to a stage 1 dark?
  7. Its a draft so you would have to be really lucky.

    You can also follow normal evolution paths even if there is a type change.

    How exactly are LVL X's going to work? It sounds like they are considered a "stage 3" evolution, but what about Lucario LVL X and Palkia/Dialga/Darkrai?

    I would propose that the rule be either:

    Option 1: You can level up at any point (so long as the colors match), but once you level up, you can't evolve any farther. ie. Mantine could LVL up Dialga LVL X, but then you couldn't progress beyond Dialga.

    Option 2: You can level up, but the LVL X card counts as the same stage underneath it. ie. Mantine could LVL up into Empoleon, but if you wanted to evolve farther, you would need a stage 1 - wartortle, etc. because Empoleon LVL X would be considered a "basic."

    To keep the power of the thing under control, I propose that you'd have to level up from a stage that the card normally levels up from.
    Otherwise, you could go straight from Charmander to Infernape LvX and that just doesn't seem right.

    pokepop has a good point keep the level up thing normal,
    and once you level up you can't go any further than that

    Did we allow Fossil Ditto to evolve?
    Shouldn't have. It says on the card that it can't evolve. That over rides the Mutant Rules.
