    2006-2007 Modified format announced!

    http://op.pokemon-tcg.com/tournament...ied_format.pdf

    Pokémon Organized Play Seasonal Format Change
    Effective: 9/1/2006
    In the interest of maintaining a healthy tournament environment, Pokémon Organized
    Play removes older sets from the Modified format at the beginning of each new
    tournament season. Each rotation challenges existing players to create new strategies,
    while allowing new players to get into organized play with a minimum investment.
    The Modified format for the 2006-2007 tournament season will consist of cards from the
    following Pokémon TCG sets:
    EX Deoxys
    EX Emerald
    EX Unseen Forces
    EX Delta Species
    EX Legend Maker
    EX Holon Phantoms
    EX Crystal Guardians
    EX Trainer Kit 2
    POP Series 2 Promo Cards
    POP Series 3 Promo Cards
    POP Series 4 Promo Cards
    All Black Star Promos numbered 029 and up
    In addition, future Pokémon USA, Inc. releases will become legal as they are
    released, per the Pokémon Organized Play Tournament Rules.
    The Modified (DX-On) format will not replace the Modified (RS-On) and Modified (HLOn)
    formats until the 2006-2007 tournament season, which starts on September 1, 2006.
    The 2007 Pokémon TCG World Championships will use the Modified (DX-On) format.
    Remember, this doesn't take effect until 9/1/06.

    Enjoy!

    So does this mean Spain, Portugal, Brazil, et al will jump to this format, or will they continue to have some of the older sets still legal?

    I TOLD YOU ALL!
    Way back when people were discussing the modified format and the meaning of delta species, I TOLD YOU.
    I said that Delta, meaning fourth, meant delta species would be the fourth set in the next modified rotation, and it would therefore be Deoxys-on.
    I CALLED IT.

    Hey, if anybody doubts me, here, I just went and dug up the exact quote.

    Quote Originally Posted by Burninating_Torchic

    However, I think there's a hidden meaning here. Delta is, essentially, "the fourth", right? Well...

    4- Delta Species
    3- Unseen Forces
    2- Emerald
    1- Deoxys

    Where am I going with this?
    The next format, maybe? Could the Delta/4 correlation mean the fourth set of the next format, in other words, Deoxys-On?
    I win.

    Yes. I'm sure that's exactly the reason they made this decision. They always choose the sets by what translations of their set names mean.

    What was that about? I love the cards I listed and am happy to see them still in the format. >_>

    now that I think about it, I'm not so surprised. I mean they did remake all those Deoxys pokemon in Trainer Kit 2.

  20. #20
    Boy, I guess Jirachi was WAY too important to rotate out. Heh, will Ludicargo make a comeback?

    Obviously. XD
    I'm not saying that's how they chose it, I was just saying it would seem to be more then a coincidence...It was just one of my crackpot theories, kind of like the one about Manaphy being a baby Kyogre.

    Will they only rotate 3 sets next year as well?
    It'd be silly to rotate the first delta species set and leaving the other ones...

    I personally would have liked Em-On a lot more....

    Wondering about this to..
