I evolve the Giovanni's Machoke to Giovanni's Machamp. Is this legal? Can i just play 1 Giovinni and just play from Giovinni's Machop to Giovinni's Machoke to Giovinni's Machamp all in one turn? Because on the card it says quote "Choose 1 of your Pokémon in play with Giovanni in it's name.

master_trainer_mike says, "Yes you can use it the trun you play it in that example."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #76 from warlockmaster:
         This is a semi-complicated question. In the Wizard's rules online, it states that after a Pokemon is knocked out, a benched pokemon is brought up BEFORE the turn ends. Now my opponent had a ditto w/ 30 damage on it w/ a golden nut attached. He KO'd my active Electabuzz , and took 10 with Thunderpunch, bringinghim to 40, and then I brought up Cleffa. He removed the nut, and said that the40 was gone. This was not true in my opinion. Golden Nut states that it can be removed BETWEEN or at the START of a turn(s), NOT at the end, so my 30 Hp cleffawould be copied by ditto, who would still have 40 damage on BEFORE the turn ended, since benched Pokemon are brought up before the turn ends, Am I correct or not?
master_trainer_pat says, "Ditto would have been KO'd"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #79 from rocketelectabuzz:
         In a DCI tournie or any tournie for that matter, if someone has a rocket snorlax out and they do not flip to see if it is awake,and you forget to remind them would any rule(s) be broken there?
master_trainer_mike says, "Technically yes but how it is handled is up to the judge running that event."
