    When legendary came out could you use base set charizard?
    Can You use Boost from AQ instead of DX?
    Can you use TVR and Briney's when they come from POP2?

    Yeah, POP 2 Briney, TVR, and Ivysaur are all lega for Worlds, because they are reprints.

    jermy, they could easily change the format for some reason before worlds, so there is no guarantee POP2 is legal for it

    Until they announce that, the worlds format isn't set in stone

    As set in stone as you living in Alaska? Oh wait, you don't...

    POP 2 is NOT legal for Worlds, that is, according to the Worlds FAQ I got from the Prof Cup.

    So, I'd stay away from using the POP2 version of Briney and TVR. They "might" let you use them, but they could easily say you CAN'T use them.

    steve, it was just ruled that you could, and this is for worlds 2006

    Its perfectly legal. They're just reprints, whether they are older versions or newer unreleased versions, doesn't make a difference. POP2 Brineys, TVR and Ivysaur can be used for this years Worlds.

    Since those cards are in a legal set for the 2005-06 tournament season, you will be able to use them, and older versions as well, until POP2 is rotated out, whenever that may be.

    POP2's probably gonna be legal for 06-07 as well, seeing as POP1 is legal for 05-06.

    FYI, here's what the official rules state:
    Trying to say to newly reprinted versions are the same as "previously printed" is wrong!

    Also, look at the deck registration sheet for Worlds 2005. "P2" is NOT listed in the abbreviation section.

    Listen, POP may allow us to use POP2 reprints of Modified cards, but until they do, DON'T assume they're legal (for Worlds 2005).

    You can use Mr. Briney's Compassion, TV Reporter, and the POP2 Ivysaur in your decks at the World Championships. This is official and has been confirmed, as they are in the current Modified expansions. I assure you that if you show up with these cards when I am (or any of the other staff members) deckchecking you, you will be able to keep them in your deck.

    HOWEVER all of the other POP2 cards ARE NOT legal for Worlds. The official release date for these cards is 9/30/05.

    Yup, that's what I'm saying here. It took an "official" comment from POP to make these POP2 cards legal for Worlds because the current rules and Worlds FAQ don't allow them.

    That's all. Glad to hear this was cleared up.
