Spring Awakens with New Butterfly Evolutions!
The announcement of a new Evolution Munzee so soon after our Flower Evolutions might seem like a classic case of April Fools. We promise it’s not! We mean it when we say it’s time to welcome spring (in Texas) with our brand new Butterfly Evolution series. These beautiful evolutions just can’t wait to grow their wings and fly into the game in a very unique way!
Our Butterfly Evolutions have five stages, with a combination of physical and virtual. Stages 1-4 will be Physical, while Stage 5 evolves into a temporary POB. Stage 5 will bounce to Virtuals and Physicals. Dying to get your hands on our latest collection of evolution munzees? The Butterfly Evolutions will only be available via our April MunzPak subscriptions, the full contents of which will be revealed on April 1 at 10:00 MHQ time. Please note that if you buy a MunzPak before 00:01 MHQ on April 1, it will still contain March’s contents.
Like our Flower Evolutions, the stage timeline for the Butterfly Evolutions will be unique and not follow the classic structure of previous Evolution Munzees. It mirrors the actual life cycle of a butterfly!
- Stage 1 to Stage 2: after 4 days
- Stage 2 to Stage 3: after 14 days
- Stage 3 to Stage 4: after 10 days
- Stage 4 to Stage 5: permanent until reset to stage one
Stage 5 will exist for 42 days or 10 captures, whichever happens first, at which time the beautiful butterfly will be archived. This temporary Butterfly POB will stay in place for 8 hours or when captured and will not be able to be nudged. However, the Butterfly will be attracted to physical magnets on Greenies and virtual magnets on Rainbow Virtuals, so be sure to pick some up from the Freeze Tag Online Store.
The first four stages of the Butterfly Evolutions will be the same for all players. However, Stage 5 will have the option of emerging as one of three different butterfly species which can bounce to both Physicals and Virtuals. Please note that although the first four stages for each are the same, they will count as different special capture icons.
The stages include:
- Stage 1: Butterfly Egg
- Stage 2: Caterpillar
- Stage 3: Chrysalis
- Stage 4: Hatched Chrysalis
- Stage 5: Butterfly
A temporary POB will be launched when the Evolution reaches Stage 4. The Chrysalis will become a Hatched Chrysalis and remain in place, while the Butterfly will be launched at the same time. It will “live” and bounce around for 42 days OR 10 captures, whichever happens first. Similar to POBs, the Butterfly Evolutions will be available for multi-capture only as a Butterfly (Stage 5). There will only be one capture allowed per stage for the first four stages.
This new line of munzees will fit into the overall Evolution Munzees category. Stages 1-4 will have a normal cap radius of 300 feet for Physical, while Stage 5 will have a cap radius of 500 feet. In adherence to our normal Proximity Rules, Stage 1 deploys must be 50 feet from any other type and 150 feet from own of any type. The Butterfly POB will be non-blastable. To access all five stages, you will need to turn on the “Physical” filter (for Stages 1-4), “Physical” and “Virtual” filters (for Stage 5), and “All Expiring Specials” Premium filter (for Stage 5).
An Evolution Reset Credit can be purchased to reset your Evolution back to Stage 1. If a Butterfly Evolution is reset, there is a chance it will evolve into a different species of butterfly at Stage 5 than it was before. Although you cannot capture a reset stage 1-4 if you have already captured the original, you CAN capture the final level of a reset. An easy way to know is if you see it on the map, you can cap it!
- Stage 1: Cap: 50, CapOn: 30
- Stage 2: Cap: 40, CapOn: 20
- Stage 3: Cap: 45, CapOn: 25
- Stage 4: Cap: 40, CapOn: 30
- Stage 4: Cap: 150, CapOn: 50, Host CapOn: 50
There will also be 100 points per stage 1 Deploy. The Butterfly POB will be attracted to the following Landing Pads:
- Stage 1-3 of Family and Field Evolutions Munzees
- Stage 2 only for Peas, Carrot, Golden Carrot, Tomato, and Corn Evolution Munzees
- Stage 3-5 for ALL Flower Evolution Munzees
- Earth Mystery Munzees
- Seasonal Munzees
- Trail Stage 1 Munzees
- Rainbow Virtuals
The Butterfly Evolutions will count toward Evolution Capture and Deploy badges.
Are you ready to help a worm start a beautiful new life? April is certainly not the cruelest month when it comes to the Munzee Butterfly evolution series!
