master_trainer_mike says, "But that brings upa good point."
master_trainer_mike says, "We will be careful in the future to not give specific dates for posting anymore."

master_trainer_mike says, "I brought back some fun stuff :)"
master_trainer_pat says, "treats!"
master_trainer_mike says, "Also learned some cool secrets about the upcoming Pokemon cartoon series 5 and other stuff!"
master_trainer_mike says, "But I can't tell ya any of that :)"
master_trainer_pat says, "what? what? secrets! you didn't mention any secrets..."
master_trainer_mike says, "hee hee"

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #6 from digiwarrior:when will the schedule for the challenge series be updated?
master_trainer_pat says, "Sometime in the future..."
master_trainer_pat says, "how's that for vague?"

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #7 from turbocharizard:Can Rainbow Energy be used as Darkness Energy?
master_trainer_pat says, "Yes, you just don't get the extra effects of Darkness energy itself.."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #8 from darkpoinko:forget the questions, let's hear some minty fresh announcements! :D
master_trainer_mike says, "ok"
master_trainer_mike says, ""Some MINTY Fresh announcements""
master_trainer_mike says, "BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA"
master_trainer_mike says, "didja here that? :)"
master_trainer_pat says, "we have some cool new non-Pokemon stuff out this week..."

master_trainer_mike says, "there IS non-Pokemon stuff??????"
master_trainer_pat says, "Very cool stuff for those of you into those games also.."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #9 from turbocharizard:What are the promo cards for season 2?
master_trainer_mike says, "Hmmmm, WAIT AND SEE!!!!"

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #11 from mechachu:So whats the deal with the whole poison effect. I mean, whats up wit dat!?
master_trainer_pat says, "Well, we were told that we needed to change our rules to be closer to what the Japanese rules for the game are."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #10 from turbocharizard:On the Rainbow Season License there are brackets on the front as if a sticker should go
master_trainer_mike says, "Actually that is a spot for the store to stamp their name and address on, so you and they know which store you are a member of"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #12 from marril2000:mike, any info you can release about the challenge series info that was said to be released on the 21st, but delayed because of the prof. test?
master_trainer_mike says, "Details are being edited now, should be up today or tomorrow hopefully"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #13 from turbocharizard:Can I work toward the Pokemon Tower Promo card before I earn the Jigglypuff Promo Card? Will this apply for season 2+ also?
master_trainer_mike says, "Nope! Have to do them in order."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #14 from turbocharizard:If I don't get all the cards I can earn in season 1, can I continue earning them in season 2?
master_trainer_pat says, "We're afraid not."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #15 from yoshi1001:If a Rocket's Snorlax/Dark Primape is Asleep/Confused (respectively), then gets poisoned, does its power still work?
master_trainer_mike says, "Of course."
master_trainer_mike says, "If a Pokemon Power says it is shut off if it is Asleep, Confused, or Paralyzed, then you also add Poisoned."
master_trainer_mike says, "If it does NOT say any of that, then Poisoning doesn't shut its power off either."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #16 from turbocharizard:RE: Poison and Burn stop Pkmn Powers. Does this apply to Baby Powers too?
master_trainer_pat says, "No, that's not a Pokemon Power. It stays in effect."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #17 from calathon:A couple of weeks ago it was ruled that if Porygon2 changed a Grass Energy Card to Fire, it would not increase the Damage of Ho-oh's Rainbow attack if there were only grass cards on Ho-oh. Can you reconsider this ruling?
master_trainer_mike says, "Actually none of us ever said that."
master_trainer_pat says, "I don't remember saying anything like that..."
master_trainer_pat says, "If so it was in error..."
darkmt_mike says, "I didn't!"
master_trainer_mike says, "If Porygon 2's Eneregy Converter is used, that energy now copunts as the new type. It could add more damage to the Ho-oh's attack as long as there was another grass eneregy also attached as per your example."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #18 from turbocharizard:If only 9 people come to the 5th week of the league, will the top 8 still get 2 cards or will it be less if there are fewer people?
master_trainer_mike says, "The prize breakdown in the league kit is assuming 32 players. It is mentioned that the Gym Leader can change this as they see fit if there are less participanrts."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #19 from michel1be:Did all the MT's pass the test ???
master_trainer_mike says, "Well, I wrote it and the others haven't taken it yet."
darkmt_mike says, "Test! Us? MWHAHAHAHA!"
master_trainer_mike says, "But I'm sure they will do fine (except DMTM, he is a talker not a playa!)"
master_trainer_mike says, "hee hee hee"
darkmt_mike says, "GRRR!"
darkmt_mike smirks.

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #20 from matthewssandslash:What's up with the Professor Program???
master_trainer_mike says, "What do you mean? Details coming up in the next day or two. The test is being finalized."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #21 from crosstrainer:If my active NR Ho-oh has four grass energy cards attached to it, how much damage does Rainbow Burn do?
master_trainer_mike says, "40"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #22 from super_nice_dude:Snorlax's pokeon pwer does that effects: it can be asleep, paralyze, poison or confused...BUT! the pokermon pwer don't work if its asleep, paralyze,poisonned, orconfused... WHY? How can it be confused if it pokemon powers tell he can't be? so the pokemon power always works?
master_trainer_mike says, "There are several ways to shut Pokemon powers off, like Magby's Sputter for example."
master_trainer_pat says, "Or Goop Gas"
master_trainer_mike says, "So if the Powers are shut off then Snorlax is Poisoned, even if the Powers turn back on, his Pokemon Power wouldn't work until the Poison effect was removed."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #23 from crosstrainer:If my active NR Ho-oh has 4 grass energy attached to it, & I have 3 NR Porygon2s on my bench, & each one uses its PP Energy Converter to to change a different grass energy to say water, fire, & psychic, how much damage does Rainbow Burn do?
master_trainer_pat says, "30 base damage + 10 for each different type of energy attached to Ho-oh. Soooo 70 damage..."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #24 from crosstrainer:NR Raichu is my active & I have 2 NR Porygon2s on my bench. Raichu has 1 lightning and 2 grass energies attached. If my Porygon2s change both grass energies to lightning energies, & Raichu uses Lightning Strike for 80 damage, do I discard 1 or 3 ene
master_trainer_mike says, "Discard them all, look its very simple. If an energy card is treated as another type then it is counted as that type."
master_trainer_mike says, "Just like Fire Burn does."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #26 from yoshi1001:If n3 Kingdra uses Genetic Memory to copy Fossil Seadra's Water Gun attack, how does that work as far as adding damage to the attack?
master_trainer_pat says, "Just as it states on the card. If you use one Water to pay for Genetic Memory and you have 3 other Water Energy attached to Kingdra, you will add 20 damage(because that is where it maxes out at) to the Water Gun attack."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #29 from crosstrainer:What differences (if any besides "holo") will there be between the new rainbow holo energy and the old Rainbow E. from Team Rocket?
master_trainer_pat says, "Really it's just different in looks. It doesn't even have the black promo star or a number. The foil on it looks really close to the foil on the Japanese cards. The holo pattern even shows through the border ink in some places."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #30 from calathon:Is TPC ever going to clarify Suicune?
master_trainer_pat says, "We hope so."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #32 from w00ty:Um, Whats the next promo? :D Got any nfo?
master_trainer_pat says, "One of the next seasons promos is a foil basic energy. That's all I'm gonna say."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #33 from crosstrainer:With the new special condition rule announced last week, we should be playing this format from now on or just the new modified events?
master_trainer_pat says, "I recommend starting to play with that rule now so you get used to it for tournament play."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #34 from slowking_man:"Circumstances beyond your control"? Did Gengar get loose again?
master_trainer_pat says, "He's been riding his Big Wheel around the office again!"
master_trainer_pat laughs hysterically.

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #35 from w00ty:Got any new rulings on suicune? Does it stop pichus zzzzzap etc?
master_trainer_pat says, "Nothing new."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #36 from super_nice_dude:If I use a pokemon breeder, I choose a pokemon I go search my deck for its evolution If the evolution isn't in my deck if the evolution is in my Prizes what do I do?
master_trainer_pat says, "You don't get to retrieve it if it happens to be in your prizes. You are out of luck, unfortunately."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #39 from poke_fan_nate:when will more detailed event info aprox be coming?
master_trainer_pat says, "Sorry, we're just not going to give out dates like that anymore. We're just tired of being wrong because of circumstances outside of our control."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #40 from captaincommando:Will there be any more Pokemon Leagues other than those listed on the website and have you heard of Toys R' Us involvement?
master_trainer_pat says, "We can always sign up new locations including Toys R Us locations that would like to continue doing the league"

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #41 from super_nice_dude:how rare is a dark energy? What is the rarest, dark or metal energy?
master_trainer_pat says, "Metal is slightly harder to get because it's holo."

master_trainer_pat says, "hmmmm...maybe."

master_trainer_mike says, "We were there on Monday."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #43 from chrisbo:What is the correct way to handle a Pokemon with Sabrina's ESP attached vs. an opposing Pokemon with the Legendary Body power? Would the Sabrina's ESP coinflip portion work or not?
master_trainer_pat says, "The same as you would normally handle it. The S. ESP is only affecting the Pokemon's attack that it is attached to. The coinflip portion works as normal."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #44 from darkpoinko:so how will we be able to earn the 'Wait and See' promo card?
master_trainer_pat says, "Many many sit-ups."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #45 from w00ty:Any info on next format other than modified? I hear NeoBlock sneasel banned, Promos and si aloud?
master_trainer_mike says, "what??? geez gang, wait and see"

master_trainer_mike says, "you can't run a 64 player tournament for the league sorry."
master_trainer_mike says, "32 max. It would take far too long otherwise."
master_trainer_mike says, "If you have more than 32 league members you should run more than 1 tournament"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #48 from calathon:If a Pokemon Power just says it doesn't work if the Pokemon is Confused but doesn't say anything about Asleep or Paralyzed, does Poison shut it off?
master_trainer_mike says, "Can you name one that says this?"

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #49 from super_nice_dude:Do you guys already know which cards will be in the ''neo destiny'' expansion? Is there anything special,, all others NEo had something special like the 3 legendary dogs, the unkown and for neo2, the new evolution from the old pokemons? so do you guys know what will be in the neo4 destiny?

master_trainer_mike says, "Nope sorry, pre-release evnbets will never hapopen for Pokemon"

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #52 from super_nice_dude:Does rainbow energy can count as a dark or metal energy?
master_trainer_pat says, "Yes, this one's been asked today already. If you use Rainbow energy to provide Darkness or Metal you don't get the extra effects of that energy card, but you get the type you wwant"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #56 from matthewssandslash:Is the Jigglypuff you get in the first season the old Double edge one? If so, does it have new art? In either case, is it holo this time?

master_trainer_mike says, "There was a miscommunication, sorry :) We actually only need 1 reporting form sent in per season."
master_trainer_mike says, "This makes it easier for you and easier for us."
master_trainer_mike says, "Preferably near the end of each season."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #63 from pigdeon_of_death:Re: 17: Wait a second...doesn't Ho-oh say it does 10+ for each extra energy CARD??? Not each energy!?! Doesn't the ruling you just gave overrule the card?
master_trainer_mike says, "Yeah, and an energy card is defined as a type if it provides energy OF taht type. So a Fire Burned Grass energy counts as a fire energy card!"
master_trainer_mike says, "So the Porygon 2 made those 3 other cards COUNT as other basic energy card types!"
master_trainer_mike says, "so ka?"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #64 from lance313:DMTM said I scored a 'Jenga!' on my Prof. test, but failed to note whether that was better or worse than 'Maple Bar 7' or 'Drill Peck for 20'. Can you clarify?

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #71 from digiwarrior:Do you guys have any plans for releasing card packs in McDonald's Happy Meals just the like the McDonalds in japan are doing with Card-E?
master_trainer_mike says, "ummm, wouldn't you get soy grease all over the cards?"

master_trainer_mike says, "Your rating should not have changed, though there might have beena correction."
master_trainer_mike says, "The Rankings wree updated."
master_trainer_mike says, "If a player has NOT played in 10 matches (not events, but matches) in the last 12 months then they lose their ranking."
master_trainer_mike says, "They still have their rating though."
master_trainer_mike says, "So many of the players who were ranked haven't played in over a year so they lost all of their rankings."

master_trainer_mike says, "Ok?"

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #75 from daewonsong316:Would a benched unown N with 2 damage counters and a metal energy be knocked out or take 10 damage when mean looked?
master_trainer_pat says, "Do you mean Feint Attack?"
master_trainer_mike says, "If you meant Feint attack, then the Benchec Unown N would take 10 damage."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #76 from the_maple_bar:If Smeargle or Clefable Metronomes/Sketches Suicune, what occurs?
master_trainer_mike says, "The end of all things."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #77 from martin_moreno:Has any more information been released about Toys'R'Us's role in the Pokemon league?
master_trainer_mike says, "We are still working with them for full details BUT their corporate HQ said that it is ok for individual stores to run the league if they choose to do so so be sure to tell your local store you want the league!"

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #78 from martin_moreno:If a feraligatr does Riptide against a Suicune, how is damage calculated, according to the power?

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #81 from onlyinyourdreams:So for now, Holo Suicune stops anything other than base damage? Is that the current ruling?

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #84 from calathon:will the Suicune ruling get cleared up in time for the Challenge events?

master_trainer_pat says, "Poison, Paralysis, Confusion, Sleep, Burn and Lightly-salted are now all called Special Conditions and they all will shut off Pokemon Powers unless a Pokemon Power states that it won't normally be shut off by these Conditions."
master_trainer_pat says, "BTW, I'm just kidding about lightly-salted."
master_trainer_pat says, "I made that one up."
master_trainer_mike says, "now low in sodium!"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #83 from purity1:ok, we have holo energy.....how about more holo trainers, for my all holo deck? :D
master_trainer_mike says, "You already have two!"
master_trainer_mike says, "Just use Here comes Team Rocket and The Rocket's Trap! You would be a real winner!"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #85 from lance313:Just to clarify on Genetic Memory: If Kingdra had one Water Energy, it could or could not use Seadra's Water Gun to do 10 damage (i.e., dow you subtract out the Genetic Memory cost before determinig whether you have enough energy to use the other attack?)
master_trainer_mike says, "Do you mean that it would do 10 more???? If so, it would not."
master_trainer_mike says, "Pat was right on the phone."
master_trainer_mike says, "The 1 water is paying the Genetic Memory's attack cost which is taking theplace of the Water Gun's attack cost."
master_trainer_mike says, "That 1 water would NOT count as an extra."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #86 from calathon:will Team Compendium have to take the Prof test and if so, will we get to take it first? :D -'Pop
master_trainer_mike says, "If they want to be professors they will :)"

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #87 from w00ty:Correction on number 36, you dont look through deck for pokemon breeder, you play from hand, unlesss your talking about Pokemon Breeder Fields
master_trainer_pat says, "Right, I just assumed that's what they meant."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #88 from martin_moreno:Can I send Wotc money to tell me info ahead of time? =)
master_trainer_mike says, "hmmm no"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #89 from crosstrainer:My local TRU won't do Pokemon League again until June! If I resell cards via the internet, does that qualify as a business so I can run a league?
master_trainer_mike says, "No but you should find other local stores and convince them to run the league."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #90 from w00ty:Hmm... A pokemon tournament.. Winner gets to buy you a Donut!!! What a popular event that'd be... Agree?
master_trainer_mike says, "hmmm, my gut would explode in happiness and then I would explode from an exploded gut."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #95 from daewonsong316:does murkrow's feint attack avoid metal energy that are attached to benched pokemon?
master_trainer_mike says, "no Feint only ignores effects on the defending Pokemon NOT on Benched Pokemon"

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #96 from gym_leader_blaine:how come Wizards wont let Pokemon have prerelease tournaments for its sets?
master_trainer_pat says, "It's really not about Wizards not letting Pokemon have pre-release event, it's just that we really don't have set release dates for Pokemon like we have for Magic. The Magic sets are pretty dependable with when they will launch. We don't have that consistency with Pokemon for a variety of reasons."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #97 from the_maple_bar:Any news from TRU on the League situation? My mom called them last week and they said were waiting for an answer from the higher ups
master_trainer_mike says, "Individual TRU stores can run the league, that is according to the TRU corporate HQ. The message may not have reached all the stores yet though."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #98 from matthewssandslash:If your Ditto is copying a Clefable, and your opponent has a pair of Dodrios benched, can Ditto retreat for free? In other words, does Dodrio decrease the Retreat Cost on the card?
master_trainer_pat says, "No, Dodrio says: When this is on you bench you pay one less to retreat. It doesn't actually reduce the retreat cost on Clefable"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #101 from calathon:My error. I was thinking of Misty's gyarados. That states that the PP "works even if confused" but leaves off Asleep and Paralyzed.
master_trainer_mike says, "ok"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #102 from martin_moreno:Whats the Pokemon card /Mcdonalds deal, if there is one?
master_trainer_mike says, "no idea, apparently something being done in Japan."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #103 from w00ty:Meh b-days in february.. Any idea if neo4 will be out be for valentines day"? =/
master_trainer_mike says, "sorry but no sepcific release dates to be given"
