master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #128 from xeodus:Just like Rocket's Hitmonchan's Crosscounter attack if succesful, would N2 Wobbefett's Counter if successful ignore an opposing Focus Band?
master_trainer_mike says, "What do you mean? Crosscounter and Counter are still considered attacks, they are just delayed. Focus Band would still in effect."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #135 from xeodus:RE Q126: I've been noticing pokemon-strictly players ranked under JSS though. How can it only be for magic in a case where the player has never played magic, but is still ranked?

master_trainer_mike says, "Sanctioning a tournament isn;t all that hard, most people just need to be encouraged into trying it."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #140 from skywolf9653:Since some of the restrictions for hosting a league have been lifted to some extent, have you noticed an increase in the amount of leagues starting up, or is it too early to tell?
master_trainer_pat says, "Hi everybody, sorry I'm late."
master_trainer_mike says, "Too early to tell."

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #142 from pigdeon_of_death:Do you guys REALLY think that LC will sell??? I think that if it's just "old" cards, there will be really no reason for people to buy it... ya know??? Drafting can't support an entire set!
darkmt_mike says, "It is selling like mad already."
master_trainer_mike says, "Then don't buy it if it isn't for you."
master_trainer_pat says, "We understand it isn't for everyone"
master_trainer_mike says, "If not for this set you would have had a long window of no new product, that would have been bad for the overall brand."
darkmt_mike says, "Have you seen the responses on the Gym?"

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #143 from skywolf9653:Is one of the purposes of the LC set, to encourage, sealed deck play?
darkmt_mike says, "Thats one!"
master_trainer_mike says, "Also, so new players canm try and get many of the older cards."
darkmt_mike says, "Many people don't have these cards."
master_trainer_mike says, "It is frustrating to join into something late and feel like you can never catch up."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #144 from chrisbo:Just to clarify, once LC is released the Modified format will still allow the Team Rocket, Gym: Heroes, and Gym: Challenge expansions until August, right?

darkmt_mike says, "Very long tape."
master_trainer_mike says, "You run so many rounds the first day, then have a cut off for the second day."

darkmt_mike says, "What he said...and long tape!"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #146 from prof_kris:Any information on World's formats or invites? By when can we expect complete information if not given tonight?

master_trainer_mike says, "They are at the printers."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #149 from xeodus:RE Q128: Crosscounter gets over an opposing focus band if succesful, as the compendium reports. Is this the same with Counter?
master_trainer_pat says, "I don't have question 128 to reference...but if Counter is worded as if it 'attacks' the active Pokemon back then it gets around Focus Band."
master_trainer_mike says, "As we have said before, the rules of the game get clarified repeatedly. What is listed on the Compendium is from last November right after Neo Genesis came out."
master_trainer_mike says, "Since the the rule has been clarified."
master_trainer_mike says, "Crossounter and Counter are still considered attacks, just delayed. Focus Band would be triggered."

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #150 from xjamx:This Question has prolly been answered a million times buy Now but I Can't Seem to get to TC'S Page today.If I Have a Murkrow With 2 Dark Attached and Feint Opponents Active Pokemon With a Focus And I KO it would focus Go into effect?Same With Benched
darkmt_mike says, "Yes. and Yes."
master_trainer_pat says, "To clarify: Focus Band will not be triggered by Crosscounter or Counter as these are not considered actual attacks."
darkmt_mike says, "Folks Mike is tired and made an error on the focus band ruling on Cross Counter and Conter. It does not trigger Focus band."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #157 from steel_claw:What will the Legensary set's expansion symbol look like?

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #152 from matthewssandslash:Re: 134 We don't have our Eevees yet either. (I got 4 Scizors instead)
master_trainer_mike says, "Sorry guys, that was just a printing error. Season 4 classic card is Scizor, not Eeevee."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #153 from skywolf9653:What exactly is the format going to be for Worlds and such?

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #159 from chrisbo:OK, here comes a flurry of Team Play questions....
master_trainer_mike says, "Actually, the Team PLay rules are still being worked on. So actually please don;t ask any specific ones yet. That is why we asked for play test reports from the Professors and we are taking into account what we erecieved to figure out the rules. So asking specific questions at this time won;t help."

darkmt_mike says, "All Energy types."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #172 from sd_pokemom:Regarding Origins: since there will obviously be a large number of Profs attending, it's apparent that many will want to judge. But it appears that the vast majority of Pokemon events at Origins are 'locked up' by outside concerns that many of us have no means of contact with.

darkmt_mike says, "Bothans?"
darkmt_mike says, "About the same for Magic..a litle younger ."

master_trainer_mike says, "Usually that is the case as far as trying to match up release dates. Product is uauslly sent to stores a bit earlier as it takes longer to get through the distribution channel."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #206 from pojosamawannabe:I know this has been answered a lot but I have never gotten an official answer, can you use Eevee's PP NRG Evolution 1st turn and evolve 1st turn?

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #209 from mt_icecold:Does neo 2 Eevee's Energy evoloution activate promo Eevee's chain reaction, how about on first turn?
master_trainer_mike says, "No it would not. Eevee's Chain Reaction is only triggered by a Pokemon evolving normally, meaning a card taken from your hand."
master_trainer_mike says, "A triggered evolution like effect would NOT trigger Chain Reaction."

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #210 from steel_claw:Is there any new confirmed Legendary Cards?
darkmt_mike says, "Not yet."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #211 from soslowpoke:Oooh you must be mixing Shellder up with Season 7's Mechanic promo
master_trainer_mike says, "huh?"
master_trainer_mike says, "Ohh, you mean that since Season 7n is the Water season and you obviously missed how sily i was being, I must have been telling the truth! hmmmm"

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #212 from prof_kris:Are there any plans of holding a Premiere Pokemon event at the Pokemon Center for the TCG?

master_trainer_mike says, "Scrappy-do"
master_trainer_mike says, "ummm"
darkmt_mike says, "Yuck. He is horrible!"
master_trainer_mike says, "Electrowoman"
master_trainer_mike says, "AND Dynagirl!"
master_trainer_mike says, "errrrr"
master_trainer_mike says, "Slappy"
master_trainer_mike says, "Happy"
master_trainer_mike says, "etc etc"

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #214 from bigdaddysnorlax:Since Eevee's Chain Reaction is not worded, "You may use ...", is is mandatory or optional?
darkmt_mike says, "optional."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #215 from soslowpoke:re211: Oh that's true! Cause we all know season 7's promo is Omastar ;-)
master_trainer_mike says, "Really? Cool!"

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #216 from mt_icecold:can you please just give the list here, because the list is on diffrent posts and it is like 12 pages long and I really dont feel like reading it all.
darkmt_mike says, "Nope. It is updated all the time."
master_trainer_mike says, "the set list hasn't been released yet my friends (it may be soon though...........)"
