Pokemon Chat Report - Thursday, March 29, 2001
by Team Compendium


master_trainer_pat says, "Hi there everyone! We expect alot of questions regarding B-day Pikachu's that may or may not have arrived."
master_trainer_pat says, "Since we really can't check on individual cards or forms that we've received what we'll be doing is waiting until June 30th before we start doing individual checks for people on whether or not their B-day Pikachu has been sent out yet."
master_trainer_pat says, "So, what this means is that if you have not recieved yours yet and your friends have, please just wait until June 30th before calling or e-mailing us about them."
master_trainer_mike says, "Also please don;t ask about any news for Neo 2, Neo 3, upcoming promos, STS formats, etc. As you know, we tell you these things when we can. This chat is primarily here for rules questions and it has been taken over by the same questions every week."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #3 from lugia_2_1986:is it possible for WOTC make display case for Pokemon TCG
master_trainer_mike says, "THere are no plans for any such thing."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #5 from chrisbo:Can you use an Item Finder if there are no trainer cards in the discard pile?
master_trainer_pat says, "No, you may not."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #8 from chrisbo:1 of 2> There's currently an old ruling that Rocket Syther’s Shadow Images is ended by Poison damage even though it is a damage counter placement and does not "do damage". Is this still in effect or has it been superseded by the Neo rules?
master_trainer_mike says, "That question is on its wayt back to japan for clarification. You aree right in that by the rules it should NOT end it (placing a counter instead of actually doing damage) BUT we also have a ruling form Japan saying it DOES end it."
master_trainer_mike says, "We are waiting on clarificiation."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #9 from chrisbo:2 of 2> How do other "counter placing" effects affect Shadow Images? Which of these can end the effect: Damage Swap? Life Down, Juxtapose and other counter placing attack? Darkness Energy self damage? Char? Genger’s Curse?
master_trainer_mike says, "That is just a ruling that specifically deals with Poison ONLY."
master_trainer_pat says, "Currently none do."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #10 from chrisbo:Last week you mentioned that ages 13 and under require parental permission to participate in the QT's and the STS. What if I as a parent plan to bring along my child's friends? Will they need "permission slips" from their parents?
master_trainer_mike says, "Yes they will."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #11 from warlockmaster:Can you reveal if the ECSTS format will have different formats for different age groups?
master_trainer_pat says, "It was decided to go with one format for everyone."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #13 from warlockmaster:Info on the World Trainer Center?! I can't wait to see it =)
master_trainer_mike says, "Well neither can we!! It will be built wioth your help at the ESTS."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #15 from bikabee22:Hey,I was wondering if I have a Chansey active with a DCE,1 Metal energy and 1 Recycle energy attached and I use Double-Edge,how much damage would I do to myslef?
master_trainer_pat says, "60."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #16 from lugia_401:Is there anymore STS info or QT info?
master_trainer_pat says, "All the QT info we have access to has now been posted to the Pokemon section of our website."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #17 from warlockmaster:Are the top X in DCI going to get any kind of free trip to the STS? (x = top 10, 20, etc.)
master_trainer_mike says, "nope."
master_trainer_pat says, "No, sorry"

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #18 from kis21x:1. will Metal Energy block poison?
master_trainer_pat says, "No."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #19 from electabuzz_13:can I use rainbow energy to fill energy requirements for darkness energy, such as sneasel's beat up attack?
master_trainer_pat says, "You can, but again it will not provide the extra effects that darkness energy does."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #20 from hi_jynx:If both Chaos Gym Stadium Card and my opponent's Slowking's Pokémon Power are in effect, what is the correct method of my attempting to play Trainer cards? (After saying a quick prayer of course!)
master_trainer_mike says, "It all depends on who controls what and whose turn it is. The active players effects always resolve first."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #21 from pikabruce:Can you play Computer Search, discard 2 cards, and then (after searching your deck) decide not to put a card from your deck into your hand?
master_trainer_pat says, "No, you cannot."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #22 from firetrainer:I have traded for Manchamp 1st No shading on the side. I was wondering how thid card was released. Someone told it was released in first edition booster backs.
master_trainer_pat says, "It was in every 2-player Starter set"

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #23 from hi_jynx:Misty's Tentacool vs. Charmander R w/Defender: if Tentacool uses Crystal Beam and gets heads, can Charmander use Gather Fire? Would Blastoise's Rain dance work under the same conditions?
master_trainer_pat says, "Crytal Beam will only stop you from attaching your one free energy placement during your turn."
master_trainer_pat says, "It will not stop Gather Fire."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #24 from electabuzz_13:If my rocket's zapdos uses plasma on mr. mime with 2 pluspowers, will all the damage be prevented or will mime be knocked out?>
master_trainer_mike says, "It will be prevented as Trainer cards resolves BEFORE Pokemon Powers do. So the Pluspowers make the attack damage 40 and the the Invisible Wall prevents it."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #25 from pikabruce:There is a special preview of the movie this Saturday, and the promo will be given out, so I need to know for a Sunday tournament: If your Entei is knocked out, and the Bolt flip is heads, does the opponent get a prize?
master_trainer_pat says, "Yes, the Entei Bolt power only will trigger if Entei is not KO'd"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #26 from hi_jynx:Ditto vs. Clefairy Doll: If Ditto has any damage on him, he will be knocked out, but will the owner of the Clefairy Doll get a prize? Is it the same situation with Mysterious Fossil?
master_trainer_mike says, "He does NOT get a prize. Same with Ditto as Mysterious Fossil."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #27 from hi_jynx:If I'm playing with Promo Eevee's with Pokémon Power: Chain Reaction, and my opponent evolves his Grimer to Muk or his Mysterious Fossil to Aerodactyl, can I still Chain React?
master_trainer_pat says, "Yes, you can one last time."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #28 from samantha_129:Any format *hints*?

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #29 from electabuzz_13:will the new format for the STS be the same as last year with 15/3, or will it be something totally new?
master_trainer_mike says, "It will be different and that is all we will tell you until it is announced."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #30 from hi_jynx:Promo Togepi vs. Arcanine, Charmeleon, etc.: Does Togepi have to have a Fire Energy attached to it for discarding in order to Mini-Metronome their Flamethrower attacks?
master_trainer_pat says, "Mini Metronome does not ignore 'in order to use this attack' statements."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #31 from kis21x:2. if I attach 2 Metal or 2 Darkness Energies, do I do extra damage or protection?
master_trainer_mike says, "Yes you do."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #32 from hi_jynx:Ditto vs. Magikarp with Rapid Evolution attack: Can Ditto evolve into Gyarados?
master_trainer_pat says, "No, because there is now a rule against illegal evolutions in the Neo rulebook. Gyarados doesn't evolve from Ditto."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #33 from scyther_ken:when placeing Aerodactyl in play and holo Eevee is in play can you evolve??
master_trainer_mike says, "Yes the one last time again (it is triggered by the Aerodactyl being played BEFORE its Pokemon powers prevents and further evolutions)."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #34 from hi_jynx:Ditto vs. Sabrina's Haunter with Night Spirits attack: If Ditto is my active and I also had 4 Sabrina's Gastlys on my bench, will I get to flip 5 times since Ditto is Sabrina's Haunter?
master_trainer_pat says, "Yes, you would."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #36 from hi_jynx:How does Whitney's Challenge affect attacks like Raticate's Super Fang, Rocket Mewtwo's Juxtapose, and Sabrina's Kadabra's Life Drain?
master_trainer_pat says, "Whitney's Challenge doesn't affect attacks that place damage counters on the opponent's P-mon."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #35 from hi_jynx:Whitney's Challenge: Damage from your Pokémon is cut in half rounded down. (For example, if your Pokémon normally does 50 damage, in now does 20 damage instead.) Is this referring to base damage or after applying weakness, resistance, PlusPowers, e
master_trainer_mike says, "Damage is halved after everything else is done. This includes cards such as Plus Power."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #37 from hi_jynx:How does Whitney's Challenge affect bench attacks like Hitmonlee's Stretch Kick?
master_trainer_pat says, "It halves it just like everything else."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #40 from scyther_ken:if Aerodactyl is in play can magicarp use Rapidevolution ???
master_trainer_mike says, "Yes it can. Aerodactyl prevents you form playing any evolution cards from your hand, it does NOT prvenet any effet that takes one from your deck and put it inot play as the Rapid Evolution does."

master_trainer_mike says, "It is for internal use only, sorry."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #49 from chrisbo:Re: Q10 - About permission slips, is there any way that you guys can make up a standard form and post it on the website? Just print it & bring it with you. I know a lot of kids will arrive in groups taxied there by just one parent.
master_trainer_mike says, "I knew you would ask that!!!"
master_trainer_mike says, "I don't think there is a standard form but i will ask. It just has to say "I give my child permission (child's name) to participate in the ESTS. " and then the parents signature and date."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #55 from pocketalmonster:i dont understand why we cant have banning/restricting here but they do in Japan
master_trainer_mike says, "They do that on an individual event basis and there are only 5 areas that run tournaments. Lsast year we sanctioned over 10,000 Pokemon tournaments. Quite a bit of difference."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #56 from misawa:Are there any new languages planned for Pokemon?
master_trainer_pat says, "None at this time."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #58 from lugia_401:If you have 1 energy in your dicard pile and you use energy retreaval (and discard a enery) and pick up the energy in therte + the one with the disard.

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #65 from michel1be:Do you have any information about QT's or other big tournament in Europe ?

master_trainer_mike says, "ha ha ha"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #72 from firetrainer:But all the Manchamps I seen in the two player set have been shaded But this one has no shading.
master_trainer_mike says, "When we FIRST made the cards, none of them had the shading. There were some starter sets printed way back in the beginnig witout shading and would have the Machamp without shading. This was caught and changed early on so the amount of them is probably low."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #73 from trovtwo:Will the Pikachu league promos have the Neo design on them(Weakness,resistance looks,etc.)?

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #78 from puritys_echidna:Re: #70: Please don't kill me! it was a double dare by Purity and Sensei! I'll be good from now on, i swear! :D
