master_trainer_mike says, "Time to start da show!"
master_trainer_mike says, "BOOYAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
master_trainer_pat says, "Yo."
master_trainer_pat says, "B\"
master_trainer_pat says, "Let's go...."
master_trainer_mike says, "We'll be singing"
master_trainer_mike says, "when we're winning"
master_trainer_mike says, "we'll be singing"
master_trainer_mike says, "I GET KNOCKED DOWN"
master_trainer_mike says, "BUT I GET UP AGAIN"
master_trainer_mike says, "YOU"RE NEVER GONNA KEEP ME DOWN!"
master_trainer_mike says, "Just thought I start the show with a song :)"
master_trainer_mike says, "Haven't been here much the last few weeks and that is because..."
master_trainer_mike says, "I have a new job here at Wizards of the Coast"
master_trainer_mike says, "I am now the Mass Market League Manager which means that I will help create and keep running the Pokemon League!"
master_trainer_mike says, "as well as some other upcoming programs (cough Harry Potter cough)"
master_trainer_mike says, "So, as usual if your league is missing any supplies or not getting what it needs, please send an email to custserv@wizards.com"
master_trainer_mike says, "make sure to explain what store it is, (location etc), who the gym leader is if you know and exactly what is missing and I will do what I can to make sure"
master_trainer_mike says, "the supplies get through"
master_trainer_mike says, "So let's get started ok?"
master_trainer_mike says, "Pat's computer is giving him some grief but he will join in soon"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #1 from dunjohn_:Why don't you have an Irish page for your pokemon league store locator?
master_trainer_mike says, "You should contact the WOTC UK office which is in charge of that entire area."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #2 from bikabee22:I'm going to the sts and need to ask some questions.(1)-You can play in both tournaments on Saturday and Sunday right?(2)-I want to play and maybe earn some boosters for playing out of the tournament and My deck has 3 of this one card and 2 are japan
master_trainer_mike says, "Yes you can play in the main tournaments on both days UNLESS you win on day 1, then you cannot play on day two but there will be lots of other fun stuff to do if you do win"
master_trainer_mike says, "you can try to earn boosters in the league zone area too"
master_trainer_mike says, "as far as japanese cards go, you MUST have an english version of the card OUTSIDE of your deck for translation purposes"

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #4 from dunjohn_:why, when there's a small set like Jungle or Discovery, do you make two editions or the rares? It's good if you just want to get good cards to play with, but it's really hard to collect them all!
master_trainer_pat says, "There are a variety of reasons for this...one that we keep coming back to is that you can use the non-holo rares in your deck and the holos you can put away in your binder for collecting. Also, the sets are really small to start with."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #5 from bikabee22:Also,There has been some comotion at a local tourney about eeeeeeeking,If you announce I am eeeeeeeking,Can my opponent draw his card as if it was the start of his turn before I draw my 7 cards?I thought no and I want to know before the STS so I can h
master_trainer_mike says, "technically your opponent should wait until you draw the 7 cards. However since you are unable to play any of them since your turn is over, this is a pretty minor rules violation and would normally just get a warning to not do it again"

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #7 from bigdaddysnorlax:If you use Hyper Devolution Spray on a Pokemon that is Poisoned, Confused, Paralyzed or Asleep, will those effects be removed?
master_trainer_pat says, "Yes."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #8 from bigdaddysnorlax:Brock's Ninetales' Power says "you may attach an Evolution card from your hand to Brock`s Ninetales". Aerocactyl's Power says "No more Evolution cards can be played". Does Aerodactyl's power stop Brock's Ninetales' Power?
master_trainer_pat says, "No, it doesn't. Shapeshift doesn't count as _playing_ an evolution card. This is the wat the new Eevee gets around Aerodactyl's power too."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #9 from bigdaddysnorlax:Would Murkrow's Feint Attack ignore Unown D's Power if Unown D was: a) Your Active Pokemon? b) On the Bench?
master_trainer_mike says, "It would ignore if if Unown D was the Activce, would not if it was on the bench."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #10 from bigdaddysnorlax:Promo Scizor's Leer Attack says, "Benching either Pokémon ends this effect." Does Evolving the Defending Pokémon also end the effect?
master_trainer_pat says, "Evolving either Pokemon ends this effect."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #11 from plasma_your_dead:What time will the ECSTS start at on Saturday (and Sunday)?
master_trainer_mike says, "The actual tournament starts at 11 am but you want to get there a few hours earlier for registration, check in, and giving in your deck list"

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #12 from plasma_your_dead:How long does the first 8 rounds last for? (how long does it take?)
master_trainer_pat says, "The general tournament is scheduled to go til 5pm, but I think it may go alittle longer than that...maybe an extra hour or so."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #14 from chrisbo:With an Unown-D (Darkness) as the opponent's active, if Umbreon tries to use Feint Attack against a benched pokemon, will the damage be prevented or not? Feint Attack says, "this attack's damage isn't affected by ... or Powers on the *Defending* Pkmn
master_trainer_mike says, "That means EFFECTS from attacks or powers do not affect the damage amount NOT actual powers FROM the defending. So in ALL cases Feint does NOT ignore effects on benched Pokemon, regardless of their origin."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #15 from plasma_your_dead:So, Neo 2 is out and will you talk about Crosstrainer this week (i.e. When is it going to be released?)

chrisbo says, [*** CHAT SERVER LOCKED UP ***]
master_trainer_pat says, "Sorry everybody...we both were dropped from the chat at the same time..."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #1 from chrisbo:Re Q14 Sorry, but I'm not sure if I understood you correctly. If Unown-D is active, (with DARK power), will Feint Attack ignore that DARK power regardless of whether you're attacking the bench or the active?
master_trainer_mike says, "I realize what you asked Chrisbo so let me be as plain as possible."
master_trainer_mike says, "Feint does NOT ignore ANY effects on benched Pokemon, period."
master_trainer_mike says, "It does not matter whether the defending Pokemon OR a benched Pokemon is Unown D in this case."
master_trainer_mike says, "If you are attacking the defending Unown D, then of course, Feint will ignore any effects trying to reduce the damage."
master_trainer_mike says, "Just because the Unown D is the Active, its power is NOT shut off or ignored when you attack a benched Pokemon (with Umbreon's Feint)."
darkmt_mike says, "Hmmm...no questions now! We lost all your questions folks. So please reask them!"

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #2 from thundrchld:if i use alakazam's mind shock with extra darkness energy on it, will the damage increase? like lets say D ala has 3 psy and 2 dark..will it do 60 damage?
master_trainer_pat says, "Yes, it will."
master_trainer_mike says, "we need more questions or I will be forced to sing again!"

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #3 from michel1be:How many people have already registered for the STS ?
master_trainer_pat says, "Over 600 people so far have registered...yaa-hoo!"
master_trainer_mike says, "CHUMBAWUMBA!!!!"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #4 from point8:What decks are you looking foward to make with the new pokemn from Neo2?
master_trainer_mike says, "Gras decks with Yanma and the new Weedle chain!"
master_trainer_mike says, "grass"
darkmaster_steve says, "MEOWTH!"
darkmaster_steve says, "I'm the top cat!"
master_trainer_mike says, "Darkness decks with Houndour/Houndoom!"
master_trainer_pat says, "I finally want to make my Steelix/Scizor deck with the Neo Discovery Scyther"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #6 from point8:Was there any types, you thought, got a bad hand in Neo 2?
master_trainer_pat says, "Fire"
master_trainer_mike says, "Hmmm, well lightning too"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #7 from gexico:I was wondering how long it takes for DCI points to get through. I just participated in a PKMN DCI tourney like 3 weeks ago, and my rating still hasn't been updated! I need the points for the STS!
master_trainer_mike says, "They are updated once a month."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #8 from point8:What do you think about Tyranitar?
master_trainer_mike says, "He looks fly!"
master_trainer_pat says, "Big and cool lookin, but hard to get going in an open environment"
master_trainer_mike says, "He needs a lot of darkness energy, weak to energy removal decks"

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #9 from thundrchld:i already preregistered..but when i called he never asked if i wanted to preregistered for one or both days... will it be automatically both days?
master_trainer_pat says, "When you call to register we automatically register you for both days...if you decide not to go for both that is fine."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #10 from aaron_the_great:Baby Gatoe deck with Super potion because the effect is greater and they put energy in the discard pile.
master_trainer_pat says, "I assume you're talking about DAsteves, baby Gator deck. He made it for the Rocket on Format."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #11 from twinsen21_2000:Okay, I know that this is a stupid question but I just have to ask for the record. There were a few error #17 Dark Persians. The "60HP" was not printed on it. How are we supposed to play it? ;)
master_trainer_mike says, "you either don't or you play it as the card is normally written in english (60hp)"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #12 from venusaur2000:If an attack damages the defending pokemon and the bench, and a baby is on the bench, does that attack do any damage ????
master_trainer_mike says, "Yes it does, a baby on the bench doesn't stop any damage form being done."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #13 from pokesensei:Hiya guys!I`m asking this so everyone knows the answer.If you are playing in the main tourney at the STS,and you have a Japanese Basic Energy Card in your deck,do you need to have an English copy of it out of your deck?What about the "Special Energy" Cards?
master_trainer_pat says, "If you have foriegn basic energy you'll be fine at the STS. Any cards that actually have important text on them(like Darkness Energy) you'll need to have an english version of outside your deck."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #14 from chrisbo:Can you evolve a baby pokemon into it's "basic" form if Aerodactyl's "Prehistoric Power" is in play? It says "no more Evolution cards can be played", but basics like Clefairy are not evolutions, are they? (Sorry, we just need a distinct clear ruling).
master_trainer_mike says, "If you are attempting to play it on a baby Pokemon then it is an evolution card and cannot bve played in this instance. If simply put it on the bench then it is NOT an evolution card and can be played."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #15 from chrisbo:Does the +10 damage from Darkness energy get applied if a Pokemon Power (like Elekid's Playful Punch or Dark Gyarados' Final Beam) damages the opponent?
master_trainer_pat says, "The extra damage will only be applied to _attacks_. Some Pmon Powers say that they attack the active back(like R. Hitmochan), in that case it will. It won't be applied to Playful Punch damage"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #16 from chrisbo:The text for Pursuit says "if the Defending Pokemon *tries* to retreat". But last week (Q38) you said that Pursuit damage to a confused Pokemon who attempts to retreat only happens if the confusion flip is successful. Are you sure about that?
master_trainer_mike says, "We have been super busy here lately and sometimes make mistakes, sorry."
master_trainer_mike says, "You are correct in that it is the ATTEMPT to retreat that triggers Pursuit, whether it is a succesful reterat (due to confusion) or not."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #17 from nookiemn2k3:any new promo's ? or anything else ?!?!?!
master_trainer_mike says, "ummm, nah"

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #18 from chrisbo:If Wobbuffet used Counter last turn, and a Pokemon with Plus Powers attached attacks Wobbuffet, do the Plus Powers apply when figuring out Wobbuffet's recoil damage from Counter?
master_trainer_pat says, "Yes, it would."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #19 from chrisbo:Can Forretress' Spikes power be used multiple times during a turn if the opponent retreats more than once?
master_trainer_pat says, "Yes."
master_trainer_mike says, "We are having technical difficulties here"
darkmt_mike grins evilly.
master_trainer_mike says, "I was asked about Dark Alazazam's Teleport attack and whethr it would trigger Forretress's Spikes."
master_trainer_mike says, "Yes it would."
master_trainer_mike says, "The one that was switched up from the bench would take the damage."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #21 from flamereka:is there a number i can call to aask if wizards can provide some prizes for tournaments that we hold at our league. I am one of 2 gym leaders at my store toys r us and we hold monthly tournaments sponsored by our store, but recently we have been restr
master_trainer_mike says, "actually no."
master_trainer_mike says, "We do not provide tournament prizes for evenst held at stores. It is up to the organizers to do so."
master_trainer_mike says, "I would recommend talking with your store manager or DM to see if they would be interested in providing such items."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #22 from darkchumaster:which type do you think will be played the most in the ecsts?
master_trainer_mike says, "I see basic energy in every deck!"
darkmt_mike says, "Gengar is in the Machine!"
master_trainer_pat says, "My guess is Fire, Metal and Colorless."
master_trainer_mike says, "There are a lot of viable types though. Should be exciting!"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #23 from venusaur2000:From Question 12, With a flip of tails from the baby power, because it says the turn ends w/out an attack
master_trainer_mike says, "The baby power ONLY comes into play if it is an Active Pokemon (the defending Pokemon in this case), it does NOT if it is on the bench."
master_trainer_mike says, "The question stated a baby on the bench but NOT as the defending."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #24 from sd_pokemom:This came up in League yesterday: Mysterious Fossil as active vs. Mew w/Psywave--no damage to MF since there was no energy on it, correct?
master_trainer_pat says, "Correct."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #26 from darkash:The Neo Scizor's attack says 20+ but does 20x. is this an error with the 20+ text or the attack text?
master_trainer_mike says, "the 20+ is wrong, it should be 20x"

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #27 from gexico:Will dice be the legal "coins" at the STS or can we use both?:-D
master_trainer_pat says, "You could use either."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #28 from darkchumaster:what is the main reason for a rocket's haymaker and what does it use? i haven't heard anything since june 1st so i'm behind?

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #29 from darkchumaster:do you know if there is going to a promo card for season 6?
master_trainer_mike says, "Of course there is!"
darkmt_mike says, "African or European?"

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #30 from great_1:Hey, I know that you guys changed a lot of pokemons' attacks and pokemon powers, but why did you guys change Scizor's Double Claw? And I want to know the reason why!
master_trainer_pat says, "We don't know why here. Sorry."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #31 from darkchumaster:does discovery have any special pokemon cards like in the japanise sets because i heard there is 2 espeon and umbreoms?
master_trainer_mike says, "there are 2 different espeons and umbreons in the Discovery set"

master_trainer_mike says, "Did you seriously want there to be 2 common cards that were virtually identical in a set?"
darkmt_mike says, "We ruined one of them..."
master_trainer_mike says, "What is the point of that?"
darkmt_mike laughs hysterically.
master_trainer_pat nods solemnly.
master_trainer_mike says, "apparently DMT Mike has gone insane again....."
master_trainer_pat says, "Bananas..."
master_trainer_pat grins evilly.
master_trainer_mike says, "Pat, grab the net and hook."
