    Well, you're not going to be able to find one any time soon, it looks like Pokemon.com is down for maintenance.

    PellOfTheTundra Do you even LT-87

    I see that now. How wonderful.

    I'm a bit shaky on this point, so bear with me.

    I will most likely be going to a "prerelease" draft next Wednesday. I've never been to a prerelease in my life, so what does it entail? Will promo be gotten? All these questions. Can't even think of them all!

    You pay your entry fee

    You get six packs from which you try and make a 40 card deck (Basic Energy will be supplied)

    You then play some swiss rounds with your deck

    Then you get another 2 packs at the end. You also get a deckbox and the promo card (while supplies last)

    So basically what happens is whoever gets an EX puts it and 39 (-trainer number) energy in their deck?

    Some people do that, yeah. With this set you can also do Heatmor/Ether/Fire Energy.

    Good to know.

    Just in case anyone wonders, if I get an amoonguss line, it's going in my deck for the luls.

    PRs are all about lulz. There's no prizes, no CPs, no ratings points.

    Just play what you like and have a laugh.

    I played tri Piplup at the DEX prerelease...

    went 3-0...

    Is trading before the matches allowed? Might make sure I get an Amoonguss.

    Nope . . . you have to build your deck with what you pull. Trading isn't allowed until afterwards.

    :( So I am going to hope for Snorlax or Amoonguss.
  13. Monferno

    Monferno Rule #1: is that you gotta have fun

    Play Combee and 39 Energy

    I saw a match between someone playing Amoonguss and someone playing Heatmor at my draft. It was hilarious.

    So guys! There is a site for the place I was going to go for my PLS Prerelease next week, and it says Feb 2nd, while Pokémon.com's event locator says there's one there on the 13th! I've never been to the location, so I haven't firsthand info. Is Pokémon.com probably correct?

    This might be a dumb question but, I live in Montana and the next closest tournaments are over 200 or 300 miles away. Am I allowed to compete in those tournaments that are in other states? I was especially wondering about state championships and regionals.
  18. baby_mario

    baby_mario Doesn't even care

    You are allowed to play in any tournament in the whole world . . . with two exceptions:

    1. Only legal residents of a country may play in that country's National Championship
    2. The World Championship is invite-only

    Googleplex Rule #3: Wear your heart on your cheek

    Could somebody please point me toward somewhere detailing the prizes a stuff for smaller events such as Regionals and Battle Roads? Or failing that, could someone breifly outline them?

    Would be much appreciated :)
