by Team Compendium (with special thanks to Lance313 & Magmar2000)


master_trainer_mike says, "Howdy gang!"
master_trainer_mike says, "MT Pat is out so DMTM is here to make it harder for me."
darkmt_mike says, "That I will."
darkmt_mike laughs hysterically.
darkmt_mike says, "Lets see how I can accomplish that!"
master_trainer_mike says, "Sorry gang, I am on the phone with a Professor."
darkmt_mike says, "So hang up! Don't they know it's Chat time!"
master_trainer_mike says, "Why don't you tell them about the change for Modified?"
darkmt_mike says, "Okay!"
darkmt_mike says, "Starting on September 1st all black star promo's numbered 1-20 will no longer be allowed in modified."
darkmt_mike says, "They will rotate out."
darkmt_mike says, "This has been something we have wanted to do for a while with older promo's."
master_trainer_mike says, "This is so that we can keep them in line with rotating out the older expansions."
master_trainer_mike says, "Of course, they can still be used in Unlimited."
darkmt_mike says, "On to the questions!"

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #5 from gym_leader_blaine:when is expedition set to come out?
darkmt_mike says, "Mid September!"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #6 from skywolf9653:Let me ask a somewhat "off topic" question here, what is The Pokemon Company's view on older players of this game? Do they dislike us as a whole, or would they be willing to give the older division some latitude?
master_trainer_mike says, "Hmmm, well we aren't the Pokemon Company but this is a kid's game."
master_trainer_mike says, "Sorry to be blunt, but that is what they made and what they support."
master_trainer_mike says, "Of course, it is great that many older siblings and parents also play the game."
master_trainer_mike says, "They see it as a good family experience."
master_trainer_mike says, "That is why the Professor program exists to recognize and reward the contributions of older players to the overall experience."
master_trainer_mike says, "We could not do this without the TO's, JUdges, and gym Leaders amongst you."
master_trainer_mike says, "However, they really frown on competition with this game."
master_trainer_mike says, "We have to skirt a fine line with what competition we already have."
master_trainer_mike says, "They do NOT see this as a game for older players to compete at high levels at."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #7 from daytongl:Any info that you can divulge about Pokémon BattleZone?
master_trainer_mike says, "It is moving forward. Will start in November. I will be contacting Pokemon Professors soon to see if they would be interested in helping to show this program to stores in their area and thereby earn exclusive Professor stuff."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #12 from michel1be:Will you, or somebody else from the WotC US Office go to the TMB ?
master_trainer_mike says, "There are no plans for any of us to go to that event."

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #13 from articjedi:DMTM keeps on mentioning something about rotating out Neo Genesis, what's happening?
darkmt_mike says, "As in all of our modified formats sets eventually rotate out. That is not to say that it will happen right away for Genisis."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #14 from paulie1084:Are none black star promos still allowed
master_trainer_mike says, "Yes they are. So Rainbow energy was released as a promo and can srtill be used in Modified."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #15 from skywolf9653:How has the response been by retailers for the upcoming Battlezone program? Has the response been positive for the most part? Since, I had heard that many retailers didn't want to host the "Pokemon League" any longer?
master_trainer_mike says, "We can't really talk about internal business issues sorry. We are a publicly traded company."
master_trainer_mike says, "I can say that we will be using various marketing programs in order to try and get it in as many stores as possible."
master_trainer_mike says, "We will be looking for your help with this as well."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #16 from bigchuck001:The big question on a lot of peoples minds, what does the future hold for 15+?
master_trainer_mike says, "Guys, we have covered this again and again."

master_trainer_mike says, "There will always be Professor events and a bigger tahn ever Professor Championship next year."
master_trainer_mike says, "THere will also be Team events which are not limited to players of any age."
master_trainer_mike says, "That is it gang."
master_trainer_mike says, "Time to move forward and not backward."

master_trainer_mike smiles.

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #19 from daytongl:Will the Floor Rules be changed to reflect this new change in the Modified Format?

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #23 from gym_leader_blaine:Will Master Professors be able in the future to run their own Chanllenge events with out the Magic Premium TO's?
master_trainer_mike says, "That is between you as an individual and the TO coordinator. The more experience you have running events, the more likely you can run premiere events for us."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #24 from skywolf9653:RE: Q6, I understand and respect that, and I certainly understand that. However, is the Professor Program viewed in a positive light by TPC?
master_trainer_mike says, "Yes it is. They like to see older players and parents helping new and younger players to learn and enjoy the game."

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #25 from bubbi_guru:So what are we sopposed ot without Promo Evee, THAT DOG GAVE ME LIFE! I SWEAR! So is it true that Promo Evee will no longer exist? by any chance will it ever be reprinted?
darkmt_mike says, "It is true. One never knows when something will be reprinted."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #27 from bigchuck001:So what about the 15+ players that want to play competitively?
darkmt_mike says, "Play Discovery Eeve Eric"
master_trainer_mike says, "They can play in the league, they will be able to compete in BattleZone, there will be Professor exclusive competitive events, there will be a Professor Championship, you can play in sanctioned team events and you can play or run your own tournaments in your area for players of all ages!"
master_trainer_mike says, "(gimme gimme gimme)"

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #26 from indigomaster33:can you even tell anything about possible GC dates?
master_trainer_mike shakes her/his head.
darkmt_mike says, "Nope."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #28 from darkleafchampion:Will under 18 year old Professors be able to help in the Pokemon Battlezone Program??
master_trainer_mike says, "Sure."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #29 from lugiasforce87:Has any new news been released about the energy promo of season 8? If not could you tell us any now?

darkmt_mike says, "Ruby and Sapphire."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #31 from toysruskid:Why....Why are you eliminating First 20 Blackstar Promos...Allow Eevee Back....PLEAAAASE :)
darkmt_mike says, "Because it is old."
master_trainer_mike says, "Guys, we rotate out older product in Modified to keep it fresh and to allow new players a format they can compete in."
master_trainer_mike says, "The same goes for promo cards. Promos 1-20 all came out in 1999 and early 2000."
master_trainer_mike says, "A new player is hard pressed to get them."

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #32 from gym_leader_blaine:Are there plans for something above Master Professor level in the years to come?
darkmt_mike says, "Yes Super Reverse Master Dark Master Tainer!"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #33 from monkeyman8889:when will the oldest sets be rotated out?
master_trainer_mike says, "You will probably see a change in Modified again late next year."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #34 from michel1be:You said that TPC do not see this as a game for older players to compete at high levels at. Do you mean they do absolutely not want to see any high level competition for adults ? Or that it's not their vision of the game but that the possibility ex
master_trainer_mike says, "There are Professor Exclusive tournaments and a Championship!"
master_trainer_mike says, "The exact same thing the young players get!"
master_trainer_mike says, "(gimme gimme gimme)"
master_trainer_mike shakes her/his head.

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #35 from michel1be:Do you know when the translations of the Professor test will be on the site and when the test will may be taken in foreign languages ?

darkmt_mike says, "I have seen the light!"

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #36 from gym_leader_blaine:if the TO running a Pokemon tournament is a Master Professor, but the Head Judge is only a professor, is the K-value still increased to 24 or is it only when a Master Professor is the Head Judge?
darkmt_mike says, "Only a Head Judge elivates the K value."
darkmt_mike says, "The reason is that a TO does not have to be onsight to sanction an event. The Judge must be there."
master_trainer_mike says, "Of course a Masater Professor could be listed as both the tO and Head Judge if it came to it."
master_trainer_mike says, "We only want to increase the K rating when we know an expert (Master Professor) is present and affecting the event"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #38 from monkeyman8889:so they GC comming up in octboer will have Neo Genesis-on

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #39 from lord_schweizer:i heard there will be a rainbow version game...is that true?...if so when will it be out?
master_trainer_mike says, "Sorry, haven't heard of that"
master_trainer_mike says, "By the way, my apologies for the (gimme gimme gimme)'s."
master_trainer_mike says, "Understand that we do the best we can with the limited resources we have."
master_trainer_mike says, "We just cannot afford the funds or staff or to go against the wished of TPC to give super mega prizes and competitions ot players of all ages."
master_trainer_mike says, "This is a game desgned for kids."
master_trainer_mike says, "We do offer high levels of competition for older players in all of our non-kid based games."
master_trainer_mike says, "If you don;t like those, there are many oter companies that make older gamesd as well."
master_trainer_mike says, "I will always play Pokemon because I enjoy it and I enjoy working with you all."
darkmt_mike says, "Me Too!"
master_trainer_mike says, "We will understand if it doesn't give you what you want."
master_trainer_mike says, "But it is what it is."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #41 from darkleafchampion:I know this has been asked for quite some time already, but whatever happened to the Professor Cards??

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #43 from wizo_pokemom:Have you read the latest article on Pojo.com by Ness regarding the Professor Program and 15+? If so do you have any comments about it?
master_trainer_mike says, "To each their own."
darkmt_mike says, "Nope. Have not read it."

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #44 from bigchuck001:Do you plan to have more coverage for Future Professor events?
darkmt_mike says, "What do you mean Alex? Coverage how? Media? People?"
master_trainer_mike says, "yes. I just wrote a very long article about the Professor Championship held in July. Hope to get it up soon."
master_trainer_mike says, "Speaking of which, I will also be contacting the Professor list soon to see if some of you are interested in trying out to write for our web site."
master_trainer_mike says, "I can't do it as often as I'd like, neither can most of the Wizards staff."
master_trainer_mike says, "Master Will-in-Training will be done soon too."
master_trainer_mike says, "So, start practicing your writing gang :)"

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #45 from skywolf9653:What is TPC's position on possibly "restricting" cards as opposed to "banning" all together?

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #46 from wizo_pokemom:Is it true, as was posted on the 'Gym post GenCon, that Professors are considered to be Level 1 DCI Judges, and Master Professors Level 2 judges?
master_trainer_mike says, "First, TPC uses an interesting star system in Japan, but they also do not run many events (at least competitive ones)."
master_trainer_mike says, "They recognize that we have more experience when it comes to Organized Play htan they do and do not try and dictate specifiucs like that."
master_trainer_mike says, "Restrictions are very confusing for younger players, just keep that in mind."
master_trainer_mike says, "There isn't a clear correlation between Magic Judges and Professors per se."
master_trainer_mike says, "We will be adding more complexity and training to the Professor program as time goes by."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #47 from skywolf9653:I haven't received any professor mail in a while, is the list still working okay? The last professor e-mail I received was 8/15/02.
master_trainer_mike says, "I just sent out one today."
master_trainer_mike says, "There have been some viruses sent to the list (blech)."
master_trainer_mike says, "It is a moderated list and so mail goes out when I or Kierin have the opportunity to send it."
master_trainer_mike says, "The Professor Forum on the Wizpog site is a great place to discuss things with your other Professors."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #48 from bigchuck001:Are the amounts of gym challenges and Stadium challenges going to remain the same.
master_trainer_mike says, "Sorry gang, we are going through budgets, licensing issues, scheduling issues and so on."
master_trainer_mike says, "I honestly don;t know how many, wherem, when, etc. yet."
master_trainer_mike says, "We want to do as many as possible, we'll have to wait and see."
master_trainer_mike says, "Gang, I understand that when you talk with any of us here from Wizards and we tell you some things that you may want to share them with the world."
master_trainer_mike says, "Understand that you might only be hearing opinions, or even unfinished info."
master_trainer_mike says, "The Magic DCI Judges and the Professor Program share many similarities."
master_trainer_mike says, "They are also somewhat different."
master_trainer_mike says, "You would do better to compare the Professor Program with the very first DCI Judge programs that came out 5 years ago."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #52 from articjedi:I got another virus last night, any idea who is sending the e-mails?
master_trainer_mike says, "Sorry, but nbo. Many viruses are sent out by unsuspecting people."

master_trainer_mike says, "Fads come and go, it is too early to see if it is around to stay or not. Remember how crazy Pokemon was a few years ago?"
darkmt_mike says, "Dunno about sales for it."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #57 from gym_leader_blaine:will we be able to run pre-release tournaments for pokemon sets in the future?

darkmt_mike says, "Any a power Bar!"
darkmt_mike says, "And"
master_trainer_mike says, "yuch, taste like sugared sawdust"
darkmt_mike says, "But they give you energy! for those long Judging stints."
master_trainer_mike says, "you said "stint""
master_trainer_mike says, "huh huh huh huh"
