1.0.71 Build Notes | December 12, 2012
Today's build focused primarily on bug fixes and backend tools. In addition to these improvements, Play Types have been implemented for Versus Mode.
While in Versus Mode, players select one of three Play Types when searching for a match. These Play Types come with various restrictions on deck construction, ranging from any card in your collection to Theme Decks only. Players will only face opponents who have selected the same Play Type.
[I]Theme Deck:[/I] Players can only use Theme Decks. Custom decks are not permitted in this format.
[I]Unlimited:[/I] The Unlimited format allows players to use a deck containing cards from any expansion available in the game. Players can use any Theme Deck or Custom Deck in their collection if Unlimited is selected.
[I]Modified:[/I] The Modified format is the standard tournament format for all [URL="http://www.pokemon.com/us/play-pokemon/"]Play! Pokémon[/URL] events. Expansions are added to the Modified format as they are released, and the oldest legal expansions are rotated out of the Modified format on an annual basis. The current Modified format permits the use of cards from the [I]Black & White[/I] expansion and all later expansions. Players can use any [I]Black & White[/I] or later Theme Deck, or a Custom Deck containing only [I]Black & White [/I]or later cards if Modified is selected.
