master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #51 from chrisbo:(apologies in advance) Last week in Q125 you said that Ditto vs. Sabrina's Alakazam inherits the attacks from the Kazam's bench too (due to the Psylink power on the opponent's Kazam). Please clarify & explain why (or why not), thanks.
master_trainer_pat says, "Sure, the answer lies in the wording of S. Alakazam's Psylink power."
master_trainer_pat says, "It states that S. Alakazam always has a copy of all attacks your Psychic Pokemon in play have."
master_trainer_pat says, "Therefore, a Ditto copying that S. Alakazam has those attacks too."
master_trainer_mike says, "OK, WARNING!"
master_trainer_mike says, "We just got an updated ruling on Pineco!"
master_trainer_mike says, "There are actually 2 flips!"
master_trainer_mike says, "Here's how it works."
master_trainer_mike says, "The attack does 40 damage. Then flip a coin, if heads the attack ALSO does 40 damage to Pineco AND 10 damage to each benched Pokemon."
master_trainer_mike says, "Then flip another coin, if that second coin is tails, then this attack does NOTHING (not even the regular 40 damage)."
master_trainer_mike says, "So there are three possible results."
master_trainer_mike says, "First if both coins flips are tails, the attack does nothing."
master_trainer_mike says, "If the first one is Heads, and the second is tails, this attack STILL does nothing!"
master_trainer_mike says, "If the first flip is tails and the second is heads, the attack does 40."
master_trainer_mike says, "If the first is heads, and the second is heads, the attack does 40, and 40 to itself AND 10 to each benched Pokemon....."
master_trainer_mike says, "(whew)"
master_trainer_pat says, "I don't get it"
master_trainer_mike says, "SHOOSH!"
master_trainer_pat says, "Chrisbo?"
master_trainer_pat says, "Ya got that?"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #52 from marios_fire_spin:What is the address for the meowths steve needs?
master_trainer_mike says, "sned them to Dark Apprentice Steve c/o Wizards of the Coast PO Box 707 Renton, WA 98057"
master_trainer_mike says, "BTW, we're going to add Pineco onto the list of cards we hate along with Ditto and Brock's Ninetails."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #54 from arcanine21:if an erikas dratini has a metal energy, will it take any damage because of its power?
