master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #491 from matthewssandslash:When will I get my Theme Deck Challenge Expedition spoils? I live in Eastern Washington...
master_trainer_mike says, "Once again, we DON'T HAVE ANY PRODUCT YET...."

master_trainer_mike says, "Once we get it, we will send it out :)"

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #493 from daytongl:Any plans for an Oracle type document for Pokemon Cards?
master_trainer_pat says, "Yea, it should be up soon. Don't ask us for an exact date please."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #500 from indigomaster33:the ecard venusaur with harvest bounty, in TMP, can you use your venusaurs power on your turn to allow your opponent to play energy from his hand to his pokemon?
master_trainer_pat says, "No, once during your turn, still means _once during your turn_."
master_trainer_pat says, "You can't help out your opponent with this Power"
master_trainer_pat says, "We've just been told that the Oracle Card Text for Pokemon is up."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #501 from indigomaster33:any new info on the challenge series?

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #502 from indigomaster33:any information on aquapolis?
master_trainer_mike says, "Nope and nope."
master_trainer_pat says, "Now let's see if we can find it on our site."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #505 from steve_p:Does Strength Charm add damage done to benched Pokemon?

master_trainer_mike says, "dunno"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #509 from soslowpoke:Are the Promos gonna get renumbered once they start featuring the dotcodes? (Like starting the EPromos with 1 and going on from there)
master_trainer_mike says, "Wait and see."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #510 from steve_p:Are there any reverse foil versions of the basic energy in E?
master_trainer_pat says, "Nope."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #511 from matthewssandslash:When will a Theme Deck Challenge "winner" get his/her boosters? Specifically, me... ;) I live in Eastern WA, so shipping shouldn't take long...
master_trainer_mike says, "Ok, last time we answer this, once we have the product, the prizes will go out. We have NO idea how long that will take, sorry."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #514 from monkeyman8889:Is the new Gengars power cumlative?
master_trainer_pat says, "Yes, though you do know that you can only move a counter from one of your Pokemon to one of your other Pokemon...or from one of your opponent's Pokemon to one of your opponent's other Pokemon."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #513 from teamrocket4life:About the Professor's BattleZone shirts; are they T-shirts, Polo shirts, or what?
master_trainer_mike says, "Still being worked on."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #516 from lizardotc:In a recent Professor email, you seemed to imply that TO's can sanction Limited events using a random theme deck and 2 boosters...is that the case?
master_trainer_mike says, "Sealed play is sealed play (meaning the players are given sealed product and build decks from it). If you are unable to get your hands on Legendary Collection (which was what was asked) then you certainly could use a Theme Deck and 2 boosters if you'd like."
master_trainer_mike says, "This all falls under Sealed play which is a limited format for Pokemon. What we list in the floor rules are the best suggestions but there is some flexibility."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #519 from mysterioustrainer:Which overides Charizard's Burning Energy Poke-Power, or Tyranitar's Dark Aura Poke-Body?

master_trainer_mike says, "Still working this question out."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #520 from mrmisdreavus545:Any new ruling on the expedition blastoise's pokemon power?
master_trainer_pat says, "The way this one should work(if it was translated correctly) is that 'you must sucessfully discard an energy card from Blastoise in order to discard one from your opponent's active Pokemon"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #517 from mysterioustrainer:Master Trainer's: Can you have a league at a different location other than the store sponcering it?
master_trainer_mike says, "Nope, the store sponsoring the league needs to be running it at their location."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #518 from indigomaster33:i'm sorry, on my question about harvest venusaurs power in TMP, i said opponent, i mean teammate, is the answer still the same?
master_trainer_mike says, "Yes it is."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #521 from pigdeon_of_death:Re: 509 Are some new promos going to get coded and some not...?
master_trainer_mike says, "Wait and see."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #522 from mt_icecold:Any chance we'll see a stadium challenge scedule anytime soon?
master_trainer_mike says, "Gang, we are working on a new contract. Nothing moves forward until that is done."
master_trainer_mike says, "Which wil be hopefully fairly soon."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #523 from monkeyman8889:so if magneton does self destruct with a strength tool on does it do 10 more to EACH benched poke?
master_trainer_pat says, "Yes."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #524 from marril2000:hey mike, i have heard some rummors about Pokemon BattleZone being able to be held in locations other than stores that sell the product, could i get clarification on this?
master_trainer_mike says, "Nope, OP programs are run through stores that sell the product. This is all part of marketing."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #525 from purity1:i've noticed that prof emails are coming from both mtm and james lee....to whom should we be sending them?
master_trainer_mike says, "We both answer mail. He does the paperwork side, I do the q& a side."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #526 from steve_p:Do all reverse foils in Expedition have the same rarity? That is, is it just as hard to get a particular common as it is to get a particular rare?
master_trainer_pat says, "Yes, that is correct."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #527 from indigomaster33:the new golem, its power says "all damage done by attacks to golem is reduced by 10" is this power cumulative if you have multiple golem out and one golem is active and taking damage?
master_trainer_pat says, "Nope."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #528 from ikendall:If I attach an evolution with a "Comes in to play" power (Like Dark Crobat) to Brock's Ninetales, since those types of power circumvent things that turn off powers? (precedent: Entei's Howl vs. Muk)
master_trainer_mike says, "Nice try but that would not work. Remember the rules in this game are held togehter by wire and gum, don;t shake them too hard."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #529 from mrmisdreavus545:Are there any basic holo energies in expedition, cuz according to the decklist in the theme deck it says there is?
master_trainer_pat says, "No, there is no reverse holo basic energy."
master_trainer_pat says, "There are, however, reverse holo Metal and Darkness Energy...very cool."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #530 from purity1:if you don't have a store that will run battlezone, is it possible to run it oneself, at a library, community center, or someplace like that
master_trainer_mike says, "Have you treid every book, toy, hobby., comic, Wal-Mart, target, K-Mart, and so on stores in your area?"
master_trainer_mike says, "This has to be run through retail gang. It all comes down to insurance and litigation protection."
master_trainer_mike says, "You do NOT want to be running an "official" program and have something happen to someone."
master_trainer_mike says, "YOU would be the one sued."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #531 from steve_p:The box toppers in Expedition are numbered 1-4 or 12. So, it that a hint that there will be 12 total E box topper?
master_trainer_pat says, "Yes, we'd say that's about as good a hint as you can get."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #532 from wizo_pokemom:Is there any way for GLs/TOs/Profs to order basic energy for drafts?
master_trainer_mike says, "We are printing more and looking into how we can arrange that."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #533 from puritys_echidna:man, i LOVE expedition... what other set can you get a holo skarmory, non holo metal energy AND rev holo metal in one pack?! now i just wish it had been a tyranitar and had been in sealed play >:D
master_trainer_pat says, "No other sets. Now don't say we don't spoil you..."
master_trainer_pat grins evilly.
master_trainer_mike says, "Now you won;t have any room left for dessert!!!!"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #534 from jpdevilliers80:The Japanese have released Pokemon VS and all these pokes were basic. Why don't you guys also release VS, but make it bigger and add the pre-evolved forms and release them in two parts - like Heroes/Challenge Gym expansion?
master_trainer_mike says, "Ok, first of all, we are not allowed to changethe cards. You did know that right?"
master_trainer_mike says, "Second of all, VS was considered to be a separate and simpler game. This is a quote from TPC."
master_trainer_mike says, "These two game do not mix. Remember Portal and Magic?"

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #535 from mt_icecold:The blastoise ruling is still subject to change correct? You will goto TPC with this right?
master_trainer_pat says, "No. Yes, TPC will post it."
master_trainer_mike says, "That is how the card is supposed to be played. You MUST remove an energy from Blastoise to be able to remove one from the Defending Pokemon."
master_trainer_pat says, "I mean they verified it."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #536 from steve_p:Is there a minumum time limit for Pokemon best-of-3 match play? Can we do 30-minute rounds?
master_trainer_mike says, "Not really, though 30 minute rounds for match play is silly. PLayers will NOT get through their games."
master_trainer_mike says, "If you must do match play, 1 hour really should be your round minimum."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #537 from ikendall:In TMP, could you make Harvest Bounty target your teammate, so that they can use it instead of you?
master_trainer_pat says, "No."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #538 from pokesensei:RE:#517 I believe you had told us in the past that you could have a League,say in a community center for example,as long as you had a store to sponsor it?
master_trainer_mike says, "And the few places we tried this really abused the system, selling most of their materials on E-Bay. Sorry gang, not happening."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #539 from mysterioustrainer:What is the number, e-mail, etc. to contact wizards about a league/battlezone for next year?
master_trainer_mike says, "If you are a retail owner and want to get into the program you need to contact Merchant Relations at 1-800-821-8028."
master_trainer_mike says, "This number is ONLY for retail owners or managers though."
master_trainer_mike says, "Or contact customer service and they will be able to direct you."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #540 from michel1be:Any news about an official release of Expedition in Europe ? Do you know if the question is discussed in your offices ?
master_trainer_mike says, "No answer yet. Still being worked on."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #542 from lord_schweizer:a wizards rep in australia told me that there aren't going to be any first edition expedition cards...did you get first edition in US?
master_trainer_pat says, "No, we are no longer doing First Edition for any of the Pokemon sets."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #543 from m_p_douglas:I just opened both of the Expedition Theme Decks this weekend. WOW! Vauluable Trainer cards inside! I immediately teched them into one of my Tournament Decks. Thanks.
master_trainer_pat says, "Cool. I wish I had them too."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #547 from soslowpoke:HP Players must know! (they cancelled our chats) Will there be a new Lesson type in the next Harry Potter TCG expansion?
master_trainer_pat says, "We don't have permission to comment on the new set yet."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #541 from mrmisdreavus545:Would you know when you could fix up the professor test?
master_trainer_mike says, "The test works, it is just that your results get scattered a bit. Our web guy now knows where they go and so feel free to take the test and we should get your results."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #544 from marril2000:ok so, i am still slightly confused, which do you think i should do. retake the test or wait to see if something gets resolved (saturday would be 2 weeks since i passed)
master_trainer_mike says, "How about wait until the chat finishes so I can look into it for you????"
master_trainer_mike says, "whillikers"

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #545 from lance313:what is the minimum number of teams to run a sanctioned TMP tournament? 4?
master_trainer_pat says, "Four...Four...Four it is!"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #546 from daytongl:Any other details for the Prof Corps on BattleZone?
master_trainer_mike says, "not yet, contact waiting and all"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #548 from marril2000:how is the planning of the Pokemon Rewards System going? any possible time wizards is tossing for to have it ready (spring 2003 maybe)?
master_trainer_mike says, "It is being designed to start in Jan 2003. However, we are also waiting on budgets for next year and this one is on the line."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #549 from soslowpoke:In future theme decks, will Expedition basic energys be used or will basic energy from the current expansion be used(if there are any)?
master_trainer_pat says, "Yes, most likely."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #550 from soslowpoke:Will the questions on the professor test be "renewed" soon? (Just 24 more days until I can take it)
master_trainer_mike says, "Heck, we are still trying to get the translations up and running!"
master_trainer_pat says, "We'll freshen them up tonight!"
master_trainer_pat grins evilly.
master_trainer_mike says, "What do you want for nothing? A RUBBER BISCUIT?!?!?!"
master_trainer_mike says, "(another old cultural reference that no one will get)"

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #551 from chrisbo:Does "Burned" replace any other special conditions (like "Paralyzed" removes "Asleep"), or does it coexist with them (like Poison)? In theory, one could be Burned, Poisoned, and Confused (plus non-special "Charred" too) all at the same time, right?
master_trainer_pat says, "No it doesn't."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #552 from soslowpoke:I believe the Oracle Files are up on the Wizards site now
master_trainer_pat says, "YEs, so we've heard."
master_trainer_pat smiles.
master_trainer_pat says, "See you guys next week...I've got to go early because the phones here in Customer Service are going nuts."
master_trainer_mike says, "You could be Charred, Burned, Poisoned, Smokescreened, AND Confused all at once too!"
master_trainer_pat says, "Bye."
master_trainer_mike says, "Bye!"
master_trainer_mike says, "Pat has to help with the phones in CS."
master_trainer_mike says, "Now you are just stuck with me......"
master_trainer_mike says, "muhahahahahahahahaha"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #553 from soslowpoke:Hey...just out of curiosity, what did you guys major in college?
master_trainer_mike says, "Me? I was an actor the first time I was in college and a video producer the second time. Neither of which have ANYTHING to do whith what I do now :)"
master_trainer_mike says, "I believe Pat studied Basket Weaving."
master_trainer_mike says, "hee hee hee"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #554 from lord_schweizer:has the condition "burn" been released? if so, in which set? if not, which set will it be released?
master_trainer_mike says, "Yup, it's in Expedition my friend!"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #555 from chrisbo:re Q551: "No it doesn't replace", or "no it doesn't coexist"?
master_trainer_mike says, "Ok, the only effects that replace each other are Asleep, Paralyzed, and Confused. If your Pokemon has one of these and gets hit with another, the new one replaces the old."
master_trainer_mike says, "Poisoned and Burned can be stacked with those first 3 effects. They can be stacked together."
master_trainer_mike says, "Hence the whole "your Pokemon could be Poisoned, Burned, Charred, Smokescreened, and Cofused." comment above."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #556 from soslowpoke:Ever considered printing Glow in the Dark cards?
master_trainer_mike says, "Interesting. Coin flipping would be tough though (Ow! Your quarter hit me in the eye!)...."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #557 from m_p_douglas:I love your choice of quaility over quaintiy with the new Expedition Packs. More goodies and less commons. Thanks!
master_trainer_mike says, "I always prefer quails over quains myself :)"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #558 from lord_schweizer:do you know when expedition will be released in australia?...and what is this "charred" you mentioned?
master_trainer_mike says, "Sorry I don't, and Charred is the status effect that one of the Quilava's from Neo Genesis could cause."
master_trainer_mike says, "Similar to Burned but better in that it is NOT removed by Benching. Burend is removed by Benching."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #559 from lord_schweizer:and with burn and char - i suppose only specific pokémon can use them...if that's the case...pokémon from the old sets can't use it...correct?
master_trainer_mike says, "Correct."
master_trainer_mike says, "Read the cards, some can use them, most can't."
master_trainer_mike says, "Any other questions? Queries? Quandries? Quirks? Quips? Quotes?"
master_trainer_mike says, "hmmmmm?"
master_trainer_mike says, "What do you think of the nice foily Expedition Booster boxes...(hmmmm....foily)"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #560 from pigdeon_of_death:Re: 441 How does Burned interact with Posion, Paralysis, etc.? No yes/no answer, please!
master_trainer_mike says, "Just explained it. Burned does NOT prevent any other Special Condition from happening (just like Posion)."
master_trainer_mike says, "So a Pokemon can be Asleep and Burned. Or Poisoned and Burned. Or Confused and Poisoned and Burned...etc."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #561 from m_p_douglas:an active Light Dragonite faints with a recycle energy attached. Both the recycle energy and light dragonite hit the discard pile at the same time. Is this a case of two things happenning at once-Light Dragonites Pokemon Power being turned off and Recycle energy hitting the discard pile at the same time? So the controller could choose which happens first?
master_trainer_mike says, "Good question, yet another example of what the rulea DON'T cover."
master_trainer_mike says, "My first answer would be that it would not come back as you discard all of the cards (Pokemon, Tools, Energy, etc) all at once (according to the rule book)."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #562 from lord_schweizer:the needs of the many outway the needs of the few...lets see if i can think of some more quotes...
master_trainer_mike says, "A stitch in time save nine......"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #563 from purity1:the boxes exhibit a lovely use of foil, i think
master_trainer_mike says, "its purty......."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #564 from soslowpoke:Hmmm so you think an Unlimited deck using Fossil Magmar, Exp. Ninetales, and the Exp. Typhlosion line would work?
master_trainer_mike says, "Perhaps, I am not really an Unlimited Expert."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #565 from matthewssandslash:Re: 560 Okay. Burn works with any other condition? Period? JUST like Poison? Works with Poison? Thank you.
master_trainer_mike says, "Yup."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #566 from m_p_douglas:Light Dragonite retreats and discards a recycle energy in the process. According to the rulebook, the energy must be discarded before the pokemon is placed on the bench. Recycle Energy does not come back to your hand? Is this correct?
master_trainer_mike says, "Correct."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #567 from ikendall:Like Tyranitar, does Erika's Oddish's photosynthesis power now supercede Light Dragonite's power?
master_trainer_mike says, "Yup."
master_trainer_mike says, "I KNEW someone would bring that one up."
master_trainer_mike says, "I just KNEW it! :)"
master_trainer_mike says, "Thanks Ian :)"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #568 from m_p_douglas:Light Dragonite is on the bench and the active pokemon faints with a recycle energy attached to it. The active pokemon must be discarded before the benched Light Dragonite would become the active Pokemon so the recycle energy would hit the discard pile and return to your hand before Light Dragonite becomes active and its pokemon power turns on? Is this correct?
master_trainer_mike says, "Dude, you are amking my head hurt. Have you been taking rules lawyer training from Vhrisbo?? :)"
master_trainer_mike says, "Chrisbo I meant......"
master_trainer_mike says, "Yes, that should be correct."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #569 from lord_schweizer:sorry about my terrible spelling...but i just woke up
master_trainer_mike says, "Sorry about my terrible typing, I use two fingers :)"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #570 from m_p_douglas:How many Psyducks does it take to change a light bulb?
master_trainer_mike says, "how many?"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #571 from ikendall:grrr, Iain.... ;)
master_trainer_mike says, "Oh, sorry ..didn't realize there was an extra vowel in there."
master_trainer_mike says, "From now on please refer to me a Masteyr Traeineour Miaeiouke"
master_trainer_mike says, "hee hee hee"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #572 from calathon:Light Dragonite is not enviornmentally conscious. He casually discards an Energy card and doesn't recycle it. Does he get a ticket? - Pop
master_trainer_mike says, "He is becoming one of my new non-favorites"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #573 from lizardotc:If I attach a Full Heal energy to my confused Lught Dragonite, then Confusion is removed, correct?
master_trainer_mike says, "Yup."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #574 from matthewssandslash:Re: 5634 Obviously... you guys go on about Wiggly/Sneasel/ER, and I doubt that there's a single good person in the world who plays that. =/
master_trainer_mike says, "Hmmm, should have been at the Professor event at Worlds. An awful lot of very good players played it."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #575 from mysterioustrainer:Sorry about that messup eariler. Now based on the last two questions I asked earlier, I have another. Right now I am looking for a place to have a league in Cheyenne, WY. Should I be talking to store owners and managers now about next years battlezone because I'll feel now is the time to start working into it. (especially after talking that battlezone may start in November or whenever). Second question: how many weedles does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
master_trainer_mike says, "We will have more information about BattleZone up on our web site soon. But yes, you can start to talk to stores about running Pokemon Orgaznied play now."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #576 from lord_schweizer:masteyr traeineour miaeiouke...where did that come from?
master_trainer_mike says, "Well, I just wanted to add some extra vowels so Iain wouldn't feel left out :)"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #577 from ikendall:Too... much...Light..Dragonite..... Charizard w/ Darkness energy vs. L. Dragonite - Charizard uses Enegy Burn - Darkness becomes Fire, then Dragonite makes it colorless again - it that still correct? Or does Charizard's power "win" now?
master_trainer_mike says, "Charizards Power is once activated. Light Dragonite's is continuous. Continous beats activated."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #578 from matthewssandslash:Re: 675? I haven't seen any of those in literally years. =/ Not all in the same deck...
master_trainer_mike says, "Dude, you should have been there. Wiggly/Sneasel/ER (with Ditto and so on) were what MOST prof's played. Not all, but some of those ended up in most of th decks."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #579 from soslowpoke:How about this? Ditto who is copying Expedition Charizard with the Burning Energy Power and then Light Dragonite in play...
master_trainer_mike says, "You forgot the LSSP'd Brock's Ninetails........."
master_trainer_mike says, "Well thank you all for coming again my friends. I hope Expedition finds its way to your local stores soon."
master_trainer_mike says, "Once we know the situation for Europe, we will announce it (I will certainly post it to the Prof listserv)."
master_trainer_mike says, "Right now we are waiting on budgets and contracts and until we know what they are, it is hard to formulate plans and give you schedules."
master_trainer_mike says, "We will as soon as we can."
master_trainer_mike says, "I will try and get answers for ALL of the other markets including Australia but I won;t promise that I will know, I will just try and find out for you."
master_trainer_mike says, "Ok, back to work for me. Thanks gang!"
