master_trainer_pat says, "Lot's of questions about Smeargle this week...what do you know!"
master_trainer_mike says, "The coloring counter actually isn;t on Smeargle, but the only way to remove it from the Pokemon it is attached to is to evolve it or have it leave play. Just like Char counters, benching does not remove it."

master_trainer_mike says, "Yes you would and since Basic energy cards do not have a specific name, so a fire energy card and a water energy card (for example) are both considered basic energy cards and so would match for the purposes of this card."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #27 from unown_master:It took me until 3:00AM GMT, but I worked it out. Was the Promo card Smeargle?

master_trainer_pat says, "for your records...yes."
master_trainer_mike says, "It acts just like Char counters, stays if Benched, removed if the Pokemon it is attached to evolves or leaves play."
master_trainer_pat says, "Yes, just like Char counters."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #43 from chrisbo:For Promo Smeargle's "Paint" attack, on the part where it says to "remove the old counter", I presume that means to replace it with the new counter, right? (you don't end up with no counter attached).
master_trainer_mike says, "Correct."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #44 from chrisbo:If Ditto's type gets changed by Promo Smeargle's "Paint" attack, does this effect remain when Ditto "Transforms" into another pokemon?
master_trainer_pat says, "Yes, it does. Just like doing so wouldn't remove the poison effect on Ditto, if he was poisoned."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #46 from bikabee22:When should we acpect info on the format of the ECSTS?Also,can you tell us an official list of the new Promos to come out soon?

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #50 from gunterl:I don't know the Neo rules yet (o_o) but what's a coloring counter?
master_trainer_pat says, "IT's a new status effect introduced with the Smeargle promo card. It acts similar to the Char counter from on of the Neo Quilavas"

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #48 from chrisbo:Misty's Psyduck's "ESP" attack has a clause that says "no matter what type the Defending Pokemon is, Misty's Psyduck's type is still W". Does this still apply if it has a Coloring counter on it due to Promo Smeargle's "Paint" attack?
master_trainer_pat says, "Misty's Psyduck remains whatever type it currently is. It's similar to the self-referencing rule. If Misty's Psyduck has a Paint counter on it that is a color other than Water, then it is that color."
