master_trainer_mike says, "We are so glad you could attent"
master_trainer_mike says, "(finally)"
master_trainer_mike says, "come inside!"
master_trainer_mike says, "come inside!"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #3 from mini_mech:whats a good combo for Shining Noctowl maybe Discovery Espeon and Light Jolteon
master_trainer_mike says, "Shining Noctowl? Ummm, most of the Shining cards are fairly limited since you can only have one in your deck."
master_trainer_mike says, "Thoough check out the Armor All deck I wrote. The Tyranitar is pretty cool."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #4 from pokesensei:If I use Crobat`s Trigger Poison attack("If your opponent attaches an Energy Card during his or her next turn...") on a Rocket`s Zapdos and the R. Zapdos uses it`s Plasma attack(which states "...in your discard pile,attach 1 of them to R.Zapdos") next turn,does the R.Zapdos get poisoned?
master_trainer_pat says, "No, Trigger Poison will only follow through with the Poison condition if you attach an energy card from your hand to that Pokemon"

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #5 from pokesensei:If I use Kingdra`s Storm Attack on an Agilitied Pokemon,will I be able to switch a benched Pokemon with the Agilitied Pokemon?

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #6 from pokesensei:Hey Mike!The Chicago Challenge was a blast!What`s you`re opinion on how it all went?Oh yeah,Welcome back Pat!

master_trainer_pat says, "Thanks."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #7 from michel1be:MTM, could you confirm that you played new Mew and Electabuzz promos in Rainham ? Some people think we're crazy !
master_trainer_mike says, "Maybe I did, maybe I didn't (hee hee hee)."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #8 from lance313:Any word on whether the next set scheduled to be released will be available/legal for the West Stadium?
master_trainer_mike says, "That is still iffy."
master_trainer_mike says, "When we know for sure, you will know for sure."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #9 from chrisbo:On Neo: Discovery Metapod's "Hatch", does the coin flip pertain to the entire attack, or only to the portion of it regarding removal of damage counters? In other words, if I get tails, do I still get earch my deck for an evolution of Metapod?
master_trainer_pat says, "If you get tails you still get to search your deck and evolve Metapod."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #10 from chrisbo:If there is a Dark Vileplume in play, can Dark Porygon2 use its Pokémon Power to put a Stadium card from my discard pile into play?
master_trainer_mike says, "Yes you can as Dark Vileplume stops you from PLAYING trainers and the Dark Porygon2 Pokemon power has you take a stadium form the discard pile and put it in play. Not the same thing."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #11 from mini_mech:do u think Light Jolteon could pave the way for future Strategys for lightning Pokemon cause of its freee retreat
master_trainer_pat says, "It's ok. I don't know if it will lead to new deck stategies. I wish more good Lightning Pokemon had made it into Legendary Collection."

master_trainer_mike says, "No idea."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #13 from sd_pokemom:Was the turnout for Central what was expected?
master_trainer_pat says, "No."
master_trainer_mike says, "Nope, smaller than we wanted."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #14 from crobatkiller177:can you search for a dark tyranitar regardless of heads or tails from dark pupitars explosive evolution?
master_trainer_pat says, "See the answer above about Discovery Metapod."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #15 from chrisbo:If I have no cards in my discard pile, can I use Nightly Garbage Run, Time Capsule, etc. to put zero cards into my deck and shuffle it anyway?
master_trainer_mike says, "Yes you can."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #16 from calathon:Trigger Poison again. Would a Raindanced energy card trigger the poison?
master_trainer_pat says, "Nope."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #17 from chrisbo:Could I play a Super Energy Removal, choose the Energy Card attached to my active pokemon with Legendary Body, and then not discard it since Legendary Body protects it from the effects of Trainer Cards?
master_trainer_pat says, "No, because that is a cost of playing Super Energy Removal"

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #18 from chrisbo:With the new promo Magmar, can you discard a Grass Energy that has been Energy Burned by Base Set Charizard in order to get an extra damage?
master_trainer_pat says, "Yes."

master_trainer_mike says, "Official info will be up on the web soon but we can tell you that for the main tournaments for 10 and under, and 11-14, you will need to build Modified decks using the upcoming Modified format. Meaning cards from Team Rocket, Gym Heroes, and Gym Challenge will no longer be allowed."
master_trainer_mike says, "That is NOT the case for the remaining Challenge events though, ONLY for worlds itself."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #22 from marril2000:mike, if a leauge was to take place this comming sunday (april 28th), what season and week number should it be according to the offical wizards league callendar (we lost count over here)
master_trainer_mike says, "That would be the second week of Season 4 (the Grass Season)."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #23 from lance313:Which boosters are going to comprise the Rochester draft pool at the West Stadium? Gym Heroes/Challenge?
master_trainer_pat says, "Gym Heroes and Gym Challenge"

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #26 from mini_mech:Rev Shuckle power attack does 40 or less to shuckle it does 10 right what if i have 3 metal and they do 70 to me how would it work
master_trainer_mike says, "Effects from attached energy cards take place before relevent Pokemon powers, so assuming this ISN'T an attack from a grass Pokemon (as Shuckel is weak to Grass),"
master_trainer_mike says, "the 70 damage would be reduced to 40 by the attached metal energies, then the Pokemon power would reduce it to 10."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #29 from professor_chris:Are there any plans to bring some larger tournements to Mississippi (bigger as in Gym Challenge size)?
master_trainer_pat says, "There are no plans at this time, but we're always looking for other places to hold tournaments"

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #28 from ericsmewtwo:Okay, serious this time. Has there been any talk about there possibly being a WotC promo packaged with the GBA Pokemon game? I mean, y'know the games gonna sell, heh.
master_trainer_pat says, "We have not heard anything about any plans like that."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #30 from lizardotc:If there is a Dark Vileplume in play, can my Dark Porygon2 use Spatial Distortion to put a Trainer from my discard pile into play?
master_trainer_mike says, "Already answered this oine, yes tye power could as it is bringing a card into play, NOT playing it,w hcih is what Dark Vileplume prevents."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #31 from crobatkiller177:Would rockets zapdos do 10 to itself or 20 with a metal attached when using electroburn?
master_trainer_pat says, "3 Lightning and 1 Metal? Then it would take only 10 damage."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #32 from monkeyman8889:Could a pokemon with legendary Body be energy removaled
master_trainer_mike says, "Need more info guys, are you assuming that the Pokemon with Legendary Body is Active?"
master_trainer_mike says, "If so, then the attached energy cards can't be removed by an Energy Removal card (as stated on Legendary body)."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #33 from bubbi_guru:When will you guys be sending out the invites for people to go to worlds, such as past STS winners?
master_trainer_pat says, "MT Mike says: soon."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #34 from chrisbo:I understand that each card in "Legendary Collection" is going to have a parallel foil card. Does this mean that there is going to be a foil in every pack (at least for L.C.)?
master_trainer_pat says, "maybe..."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #35 from bubbi_guru:How many sets are PLANNED to come out before worlds...to add to the card pool?
master_trainer_mike says, "at least one"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #36 from bubbi_guru:about how many people will be in each age catagory at worlds? seeing as how you guys are controling the number of people alowed to play in the main events?
master_trainer_mike says, "We are giving out trips for roughly 50 10 and under, and 100 11-14 but there will be more invitations than trips so can't be sure how many people will come and play."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #37 from bubbi_guru:I hear that on the second day of the worlds event there will be a professor only tournament...what format will it be?
master_trainer_mike says, "There will be the Wizards/Professor Challenge held on the second day ONLY for Pokemon Professors that come and put in at LEAST 4 hours of work at the event."
master_trainer_mike says, "Format has not yet been announced. You will have the chance to play directly against us though."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #38 from monkeyman8889:So the format for worlds will be all the neo sets AND any new upcoming sets you make before then? aka Legendary colection?
master_trainer_pat says, "Yes. That's the plan so far..."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #39 from lizardotc:If my opponent has Forretress on his bench and my Confused active Pokémon KO's itself on a failed Confusion flip, will my new Active Pokémon take 10 damage from Spikes?
master_trainer_mike says, "Yes it will."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #40 from mini_mech:so if i had 4 metal on it and they did 80 it would do nothing
master_trainer_mike says, "this is not a complete question...."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #42 from bubbi_guru:Why are the drafts for pokemon professor trips rodchester? Why not have it regular?
master_trainer_mike says, "Becuase Rochester takes more skill, Professors are supposed to be the most skilled."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #43 from jay_lv99:where've you all been? I missed you! *Jay_Lv99 sniffs, and wipes a tear from his eye*
master_trainer_mike says, "Traveling and working (hands over a hanky)."
master_trainer_pat says, "Buck up, little camper"

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #44 from jay_lv99:re #31, I thought that Metal only prevented 10?
master_trainer_pat says, "It does, but it also _reduces_ the damage done by 10."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #45 from jay_lv99:do you guys like Gilligan's Island? It's on right now on T.V. Land, (I'm so glad my Computer's by the TV!)
master_trainer_mike says, "If I could build as many things out of coconuts as the Professor could I would be KING OF THE WORLD!"

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #46 from jay_lv99:MT Pat, why did you say "MT Mike says: soon"? is he not here?
master_trainer_pat says, "Because he was dropped from the chat momentarily and he asked me to answer the question for him."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #51 from bubbi_guru:tack so i flip for sleep before iggly's power resolves by ending? making me only have to flip
master_trainer_pat says, "Are you trying to use Igglybuff's Power twice? We don't understand your question."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #53 from jay_lv99:what is the Legendary Collection? when will it be out?

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #52 from professor_chris:How many Professors do you estimate will be needed to help at the Worlds event?
master_trainer_mike says, "Dunno, we will need a small number for judges for the main tournaments but we also use Professors for the side events, registration, information, deck checks, cleaning, arranging, and so on."
master_trainer_mike says, "If a Professor wnats to work so they can play in the special tournament, we will find something for them to help with."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #93 from chrisbo:In your opinion, do you think "Legendary Collection" be conducive for drafting on its own, or do you think it would be better combined with other expansions?
master_trainer_mike says, "It will make a very good drafting and sealed play set all on its own (that is part of its design)."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #94 from crosstrainer:No offense to sd_pokemom, but what was the deciding factor to have WCSC 2002 in San Diego instead of, say, Sacramento?

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #98 from jay_lv99:re#95, it says attach to *MEWTWO*, are you sure you'd attach the energies to Sabrina's Alakazam?
master_trainer_mike says, "Read the self-referncing rule my friend. You are copying an attack that self refernvces, when you do that you replace the self-refernce with the name of the Pokemon copying that attack."
