    The Pokemon events for GENCON Anaheim have been posted. Here's
    the link. Do a search on all days and "Pok" in the "Title Contains:" field.
    (FYI, Pokemon is listed as a "Card Game" rather than a "Trading Card
    Game." Magic and Yu-Gi-Oh are "card games" also. Go figure.)

    A couple of things.

    First, I am SO happy to see that Nintendo is stepping up at this event
    with organized play.

    Second, there are some really interesting tournaments. Stolen
    right from the website...

    Pokémon "Mutant" Draft - This fun, non-sanctioned event features a
    booster draft format from the EX series. In this draft format,
    Pokémon can evolve from any Pokémon of their type, as opposed to just
    their own Evolution chain.
    (So this would mean that you could evolve, for example, an Ivysaur
    from a Paras, since they're both of the same type (Grass)). Interesting)


    Pokémon Team Limited - Bring in your own 3-player team to compete in
    a sealed booster tournament! Each team will receive boosters from the
    EX series to build three decks. Teams will be paired each round for
    swiss match play, with prizes being awarded at the end.
    (Comment: *3* player teams!? I'm glad to see Nintendo/Pokemon USA
    supporting team play, but I'm going to have to mull over this 3
    player thing.)


    Hats off to Nintendo. Too bad I can't make it! :mad:

    Furret wanders in clutching plane tickets.
    Furret goes off looking for Gen Con Pre Registration
    so it doesn't have to wait in those long, long lines.

    Umbreon reads about the "Mutant Draft."
    Umbreon wonders why anyone would want to put a Dagonair
    on an Eevee when they could use an Umbreon instead?
    Perhaps, they might prefer a Dragonair over an Espeon on
    a Eevee, but an Umbreon???

    Espeon comes in and wonders who else besides Doug is
    going to this event?

    Jolteon, Flareon, and Vaporeon decided they will play
    in the "three player team battles."
