by Team Compendium


master_trainer_mike says, "Howdy gang!"
master_trainer_mike says, "Its the mans with da planz!"
master_trainer_mike says, "Its the MTM show!"
master_trainer_mike says, "oh yeah, and dmtm"
master_trainer_mike smirks.
darkmt_mike says, "Nice"
darkmt_mike shakes his head.
darkmt_mike says, "Hey if you go here you can submit your decks now for possible posting!"
darkmt_mike says, "http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=pokemon/decksubmit"
darkmt_mike says, "I will be looking through them and posting them to the web."
darkmt_mike says, "I will probably comment on them as well!"
darkmt_mike says, "mtm and I will maybe even do point counter point on them!"
darkmt_mike says, "Thogh I know his points won't be as good!"
master_trainer_mike says, "Careful, he might smear maple bar sauce on them too...................."
master_trainer_mike says, "Also Delegate kits will be shipping out tomorrow. Info on the Delegate program is on the Professor email list."
master_trainer_mike says, "All Master Professors will have their own BattleZone kits sent out soon as well."
darkmt_mike says, "Aquapolis has been bummed back."
master_trainer_mike says, "he meant bumped"
darkmt_mike says, "It is now coming out some time in January"
darkmt_mike says, "No I mean't bummed!"
darkmt_mike says, "Or not!"
master_trainer_mike says, "sometimes I think he has no idea what he means......."
darkmt_mike smirks.
master_trainer_mike says, "Ok, on with da show."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #5 from indigomaster33:can you give us an explanation of how the new wipeout system for master proffessor points will work?
master_trainer_mike says, "Sure, its quite simple. You must head judge or be the to for 5 sanctioned events in a calender year to beomce a Master professor."
master_trainer_mike says, "On Jan 1, 2003, all of these numbers start back at zero."
master_trainer_mike says, "Then you have all of 2003 to earn 5 points to become a Master Professors, or earn 5 to maintain an existing Master Professor status."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #6 from steve_p:I have a 15-year old kid in my area who became a professor in late October. He's already judged one tournament. Are you going to reset his MP points on Jan 1 to zero? Or maybe give a few-month grace period for new professors?
master_trainer_mike says, "Sorry, but no. There are only a few of us doing a lot of work for Pokemon here. That isn't feasible."
master_trainer_mike says, "Also it has been stated the entire time that it is 5 points in a calender year."
master_trainer_mike says, "If he wants to become a Master Professor, working on 5 events in an entire calender year is pretty easy."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #7 from mysterioustrainer:Hey MTM, is the cubicle still in one piece? *mysterioustrainer smirks like crazy* You said a while back in a Professor E-mail, that WotC is discussing plans with Target Stores, Hastings Stores, and Books-a-Million Stores about getting Pokémon Battlezone Started. Has there be any new news since that?
master_trainer_mike says, "Well, Books-a Million, Hastings, Gamekeeprs, and Wizards of the Coast tsores are all running BattleZone starting in January."
master_trainer_mike says, "Target has chosen not to at this time."

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #8 from mysterioustrainer:I am assuming no new news on Challenge Series yet, correct?
darkmt_mike says, "correct."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #9 from marril2000:hey mike, any snow over there? anyways, i was wondering about switching my professor email address, should i just send an email to the list or give you the info here?
master_trainer_mike says, "Email the list please :)"
master_trainer_mike says, "Also you should always update your changed contact information in the DCI (go to www.thedci.com)."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #10 from mysterioustrainer:Out of curiosity, who is your team partner in Team Weedle (when it comes to multiplay)?
master_trainer_mike says, "Sometimes Kierin and sometimes Dmon are on my team."
darkmt_mike says, "No one will partner with him...he plays...."
darkmt_mike says, "...alone."
master_trainer_mike says, "I like my pokeflute."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #11 from farbsman:MTM, have you considered changing the requirement for a classic promo from 100 to 200 points? With an 2-3 hour league you can go through a lot of promos
master_trainer_mike says, "So it all comes down to how often and how long you run you rleague."
master_trainer_mike says, "Most leagues do not run 2-3 hours anymore."
master_trainer_mike says, "If you run yours for that long, then feel free to adjust the numbers accordingly."
master_trainer_mike says, "You basically need to spread out those cards for the month. You should know your players better than I will."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #12 from farbsman:Will January include the Jumbo promo cards for the league?
master_trainer_mike says, "Yes it will!"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #13 from lizardotc:Suppose that there is a Chaos Gym in play and I have a Slowking benched. I attempt to play Computer Search, discarding 2 cards to do so, and then I flip tails. My opponent attempts to (play/use?) the Computer Search. Does she ALSO discard 2 cards before the Slowking and Chaos Gym flips?
master_trainer_mike says, "Yup. Though that player does NOT need to check for Chaos Gym again. They could still be stopped by Slowking (if you had one)."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #14 from farbsman:Will we recieve an email when you recieve our Delegate program sheet?
master_trainer_mike says, "Nope. I will only email you if there is a problem with it."
master_trainer_mike says, "I will submit a list of received Delegates to the Professor list tomorrow so you can see that yours came in or not."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #15 from marril2000:well... its the first chat of Dec. time to ask the question, what do YOU want for the holidays ;)
darkmt_mike says, "I want to see The Two Towers first!"
master_trainer_mike says, "That's a good one..........."
master_trainer_mike says, "I'd like to see those Yogi - go cards all vanish as well."
master_trainer_mike smirks.

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #16 from purity1:well, i for one am bummed about aquapolis....
darkmt_mike says, "Yup."
darkmt_mike says, "That is the way it goes with the world of Printing!"
master_trainer_mike says, "THose dot codes are very complicated. This is also why Expedition was delayed."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #18 from pokesensei:Hey Mike,in an ealier e-mail you answered,you said "And if you are REALLY good then Santa might bring you something later this
darkmt_mike says, "But you have been really good Sensei!"
darkmt_mike grins evilly.
master_trainer_mike says, "Apparently the fine art of sarcasm is lost.........."
darkmt_mike says, "Not!"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #19 from indigomaster33:what about people who just now became a proffessor? if they gain points before the beggining of the year will those points be erased as well?
master_trainer_mike says, "Yup. That's the way thhis program is and has been announced the entire time."
master_trainer_mike says, "Sorry."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #20 from m_p_douglas:I was judging last Sat. and the TO gave me this problem to solve: A player had put his deck in clear sleeves and then put 60 identical promo cards facing outward in the same set of clear sleeves so that one side the deck showed and on the other side an identical promo card showed. I read the UTR and it did not say anywhere that you could put a second card in your sleeved deck. I took them out, but said I would ask about it on the Chats to see what you would say.
darkmt_mike says, "Can't do that."
master_trainer_mike says, "You can't have 2 cards in a sleeve. Since the cards slip around, there could be problems with marked cards."
master_trainer_mike says, "So, it falls under the marked cards rules."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #21 from steve_p:A while back, a WOTC big-wig (Mr Lee I think), said there will be 4 major Professor tourneys in the US that will feed a Worlds Professor event. It that still in the works?
master_trainer_mike says, "It is still being discussed and planned."

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #22 from purity1:do you only want modified decks sent in, or unlimited as well?
darkmt_mike says, "I prefer Modified or Team decks (both Team)"
darkmt_mike says, "I will occasionally look at unlimited."
master_trainer_mike says, "Or feel free to write about a deck you ended up drafting in limited play and why."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #23 from mysterioustrainer:Since you said that Target overall has not choosen to run...can delagates try Target locally? (No not for me...for my city)
darkmt_mike says, "Draft is good as well!"
master_trainer_mike says, "Do NOT bother any Target stores. They have specifically requested to not be approached about BattleZone."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #24 from marril2000:well some good news is i convinced the store owner to see about letting BattleZone have a shot, and he is checking into a january time slot to run it, i am considering league style, but do we have to use the score sheets provided? i was considering cr
master_trainer_mike says, "First of all, I would really much rather that BattleZone was run as sanctioned events. It is better for the players and for the long term health of the brand."
master_trainer_mike says, "However, I recognize that some areas can't handle tournaments easily so basic league play rules are provided."
master_trainer_mike says, "You can certainly modify them or improve them as long as you have your player's best interests in mind."
master_trainer_mike smiles.

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #25 from yoshi1001:How many delegates do we have so far (roughly)?
darkmt_mike says, "about 65."
darkmt_mike says, "BILLION!"
darkmt_mike says, "Okay just 65"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #26 from m_p_douglas:Dmtm can fix my deck submissions, but MTM?????..........+4 Weedle, + 4 Focus Bands (because Noble Pokemon ought to last more than one turn, +4 Strength Charm (because Weedle is very jealous of Caterpie with darkness energy, +6 grass energy (for Weedle of course),... Thanks MTM my deck was nice, but now its , its, its indescribable
master_trainer_mike says, "Should I mention that I am that one that helps make rules and cards for this game and he eats Maple Bars????"
master_trainer_mike says, "Is that what you want?>"
darkmt_mike says, "I do to you Weedle lover!"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #27 from wizo_pokemom:Will all who meet the requirements for Delegate (MP, 18+) become one, or would there be any reason to be excluded from the program?
master_trainer_mike says, "You don;t have to be a Master Professor, just an 18 year old or older Professor and you MUST provide a unique store location in your are athat you plan to visit."
master_trainer_mike says, "If you can't list a unique store in your area, then you won;t be accepted."
master_trainer_mike says, "That has not been much of an issue as of yet."
master_trainer_mike says, "Also, we reserve the right to refuse service if need be."
master_trainer_mike says, "This is explianed in the Delegate form."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #28 from calathon:YoGi-Go? "Hey, BooBoo, I summon a Pic-i-nik Basket! Your Blue Eyes White stops for a snack!"
master_trainer_mike says, "There ya go."
darkmt_mike says, "It is as challenging as that!"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #29 from farbsman:Can you explain how we need to sanction tournaments for battlezone? How will we recieve the saction #? I believe you said in the mail, does that mean snail mail?
master_trainer_mike says, "Correct. YOu send in the sanctioning form and you will be mailed a cover sheet for your event (along with the sanctioning #)."
master_trainer_mike says, "I realize that during this first month that makes it a bit tight, but you can run the event while you are still waiting for your sanctioning number and edit DCI reporter later."
master_trainer_mike says, "This is why you need to pre-sanction the following month's events by the 20th of this month."

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #30 from steve_p:Just to make it official. Can you make a statement that Base Set (and Base2) Buzz is now legal for modified?
darkmt_mike says, "Yes he is legal for Modified."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #31 from daytongl:Since BZ Tourneys are run under the same guidelines as Friday Night Magic, will BZ Tournaments still get the K boost for a MP Head Judging?
master_trainer_mike says, "Yes. They are normally 16k events, but if the head judge is a Master Professor, they will elevate the K rating to 24."

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #32 from lizardotc:Re: #24; I am running 2 Battlezones league style, AND also offering at least 2 separate DCI-sanctioned tourneys per month. This is to allow for both casual play and tough competitive play under the same roof....
darkmt_mike says, "Excellent!"
master_trainer_mike says, "Great!"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #33 from pokesensei:Mike,I know that you feel that BZ should be run as a tourney,but some places have alot of younger kids that don`t/cant do tourneys.By cutting this segment out,you would be harming some of the future growth.In other words,keep it for everyone,not just
master_trainer_mike says, "The long term health of the brand is based upon these kids learning about the next level of game play."
master_trainer_mike says, "Of course you can run a league if that is what type of players you have."
master_trainer_mike says, "However, Magic, Yogi-go, and many other TCG's have been doing this for years."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #34 from marril2000:RE 24: i would have liked to also do BattleZone as a tournament, but they way the store is set up (as in scheduling) the owner prefered league... but said he could check with the store TO about setting up a pokemon event during games weekend (a fun co
master_trainer_mike says, "Right. Again, we recognize that there will be circumstances that make league play work better for your location."
master_trainer_mike says, "That is why we created the flexibility to do either in this program :)"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #35 from m_p_douglas:If you scan Professor Oak's Research, you end up with a chess clock. While that may not seem like much, chess clocks are very expensive and most Pokemon Players will enventually have the E reader. I played a lot of chess before I switch to Pokemon and Chess Clocks could be someday have some use to Pokemon. Probably not, but it is an interesting developement
master_trainer_mike says, "Unfortunately we cannot require payers to all have GBA and readers and that card."
master_trainer_mike says, "There is also the issue of what happens if the batteries die part way through, as well as the fact that it is hard to see the GBA with its reflective light technology."
darkmt_mike says, "Not practical unfortunately."
master_trainer_mike says, "It would also take more table space and can you imagine all the bleeping and blipping you would hear at a large tournament?"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #36 from mysterioustrainer:In my league that I attend in Northern Colorado, my GL is finally setting up for BZ. Now if I remember right, we can hold it on a weekly basis, and then have a DCI sanctioned tournament if we want. If that being the case can you tell me how to do that? Also can one store hold two BZs (at different times)?
master_trainer_mike says, "It is all explained in ethe BattleZone kits."
master_trainer_mike says, "Normally a store can order a maximum of 4 of these kits per month."
master_trainer_mike says, "Excpetions can be made but only with proof of need."
master_trainer_mike says, "Have the store talk with our Direct Sales department."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #37 from steve_p:Will sanctioned BZ tournaments be listed on the DCI Tournament Locator?
master_trainer_mike says, "Yes."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #38 from pokesensei:RE:29 So we can`t get them approved online(which takes an hour) like any other tourney?
master_trainer_mike says, "Correct. Friday Night Magic, Jedi Nights, and BattleZone must all be mailed in."
master_trainer_mike says, "While there are certainly some of you that could handle it in other ways, keep in mind that the majority of these events will be run by relative newbies."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #39 from mysterioustrainer:I know that this has been asked about before but my league needs reconvincing (again). Opponent uses Smokescreen, I then retreat for a new Active Pokemon. Is the Smokescreen effect still working since the Defending Pokemon retreated?
master_trainer_mike says, "Look at what the card says. If it says "this effect is on the Defending Pokemon" whether it is Smokescreen, or Maple Bar Mania, when that Defending Pokemon reterats to Bench, that effect ends."
darkmt_mike says, "That Maple Bar card is soooo good!"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #41 from soslowpoke:Could you possibly send out to the professor list the "script" in the Delegate kits to help out those non-delegates into getting battlezone locations up?
master_trainer_mike says, "All the info that I am comfortable with sending out to the public is on the web site."
master_trainer_mike says, "Delegates sign legal forms. Nuff said."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #42 from yoshi1001:Do you know if the chain stores you mentioned will be running BZ as a league or a tournament?
master_trainer_mike says, "That is up to thye inidividual stores. You can certainly offer to help them out."

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #43 from monkeyman8889:any new info on the GCs?
darkmt_mike says, "Nope."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #44 from farbsman:Any plans on moving the online sanctioning link to a hidden page? Since it is out where anyone can get to it, aren't you afraid dis-honest players will try turning in false reports in order to get free promos?
master_trainer_mike says, "Promos are only earned by people running actual events at locations we know have purchased BattleZone."
master_trainer_mike says, "Since these locations and events willbe listed online, we assume that the public will let us know when an event wasn't run or when there is fraud."
master_trainer_mike says, "We have to trust you guys at some level."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #45 from steve_p:RE: ?#38 But, we can still report the BZ tournament results online, right?
master_trainer_mike says, "Right."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #46 from monkeyman8889:before you made a ruling bout lugia discarding energy but since it doesnt call for basic energy you have to discard it ,but do any pokemon discard basic energy?
master_trainer_mike says, "Smoochum can allow you to discard Special Energy cards."
master_trainer_mike says, "Not aware of any thaht have you discard Basic Energy cards off of the top of my head."

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #47 from mysterioustrainer:RE39 What is the Maple Bar Mania card?
darkmt_mike says, "A really good secret card I think."

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #48 from soslowpoke:Whats the status on aquapolis?
darkmt_mike says, "Bummed"
master_trainer_mike says, "Coming out in January."
darkmt_mike says, "I mean bumped"

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #49 from nopoke59:is it possible to get a link to Team Compendiums rulings collection on the Single Card page of the PokeGym
darkmt_mike says, "Hmm. I don't know but I can look into it."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #50 from yoshi1001:in an article this week on TMP sealed you mentioned a team championship at origins. I thought it was going to be at GenCon. Could you clarify this?
master_trainer_mike says, "Oops! You are correct. The Professor Championship is at Origins. The Team Championships are at Gen Con. I will get that fixed. Thanks."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #51 from marril2000:so how has 'art-guy' (dave w.) been doing lately? by any chance do you know if the challenge series logo will be the same for 2003?
master_trainer_mike says, "He is as overworked as the rest of us."
master_trainer_mike says, "No details on Challenge series yet."

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #52 from m_p_douglas:In the Master Card Rulings under Ho-oh "Rainbow Burn" there is a question that has some very bad math in it. Unfortionately, the answer is math as well. The question has Ho-oh (nonholo) with 4 grass energy on it. It has Porygon2 on the bench using its Pokemon Power "Energy Converter" to turn one of the Grass Energies attached to Ho-oh to Fire Energy. Will Porygon2's Pokemon Power (or other similiar situations) help Ho-oh's attack do 10 addition damage? I am reasking this question because the bad math in the orginal question makes the answer ambiguous.
darkmt_mike says, "The Ho-Oh only does 10 more for each type of Basic Energy card."
darkmt_mike says, "A basic Enargy card whoes type is changed still counts as the original basic Energy card.."
darkmt_mike says, "..and the new types Energy card."
darkmt_mike says, "So a Grass Energy card on Ho-oh is a Grass basic Energy card if it is changed to provide fire it is still a Grass Basic Energy card."
darkmt_mike says, "It would also count as a Fire Energy card, but not a Basic Fire Energy card. Clear?"

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #53 from aspira:where do I get more cards
darkmt_mike says, "Yoshi"
darkmt_mike says, "Oh no you get them from Hobby and game stores and TRU, ect..."

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #55 from m_p_douglas:Nice Articles DMTM
darkmt_mike says, "Thanks. I like to write them."

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #54 from soslowpoke:Will there ever be another gift box like Southern Islands or Thunderstorm?
darkmt_mike says, "One never knows."

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #56 from lepi1962:Will the Electabuzz BZ kit be available in January?
darkmt_mike says, "No. The new kit with Maple Bar Mania will be!"
darkmt_mike says, "Not really Maple Bar Mania."

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #57 from pokesensei:Oh,just to clarify an answer you gave to Farbs about the Jumbo card.We won`t get them in the first kits but will get them in the January kits?
darkmt_mike says, "Correct."

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #58 from indigomaster33:i have a friend who would like me to ask this "my local wal mart is interested in running battlezone events, but the only space they have is a cafeteria that is usually vacated, will this work?
darkmt_mike says, "Sure. It is still in the store."

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #59 from yoshi1001:Pssst...Need a Steve's Mewtwo? I can get ya one really cheap...
darkmt_mike says, "No I have 1,000 of those."
darkmt_mike smiles.

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #61 from calathon:DMTM: It has previously been very explicit that if a card provides energy of a type, it is a card of that type. If you now say a Grass card changed to a Fire card is not considered a Basic Fire card, that will be a MAJOR rulings change!! -Pop
darkmt_mike says, "Yes. But NOT A BASIC ENERGY CARD!"
darkmt_mike says, "It is a Fire Energy card."
darkmt_mike says, "Not a Basic fire Energy card."

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #62 from marril2000:since the BattleZone kits are out, can you tell us what the new promotionable symbol is? :P
darkmt_mike says, "It is the "Best" promo card"

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #63 from lepi1962:Not a chance for Aqpls in December?
darkmt_mike says, "Nope."

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #64 from farbsman:One small problem, I was looking through the BattleZone kit, and there is no emvelope and nothing saying where to mail the Sanctioning form, what are we suppose to do with it?
darkmt_mike says, "The address is there."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #60 from marril2000:so, since the electabuzz is available in holo form in january, that means its the same through febuary correct? so that would mean they are available as a basic promo march?
master_trainer_mike says, "The Electabuzz is the December card. So the non-winner stamped version of this card will be the participation card in the February kits."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #65 from lucky_cal:So if it's converted by Porygon2, it is no longer a Basic Energy card... does that mean 2 Porygon2's can't convert the same energy card in a turn?
master_trainer_mike says, "It is still a basic energy card. It is a grass basic energy card that provides fire energy, so it counts as a fire energy card, comprende?"
master_trainer_mike says, "You have to understand that you NEVER change what a card really is. You can change what it provides and what it can count as."
master_trainer_mike says, "A card that provides energy of a certain type, is considered an energy card of that type."
master_trainer_mike says, "That is why Rainbow counts as a Fire energy card but NOT a BASIC FIRE ENERGY CARD!!!!"
master_trainer_mike says, "It is still a Special Energy card as usual."

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #66 from nopoke59:so HoOh with rainbow energy....the rainbow adds nothing
darkmt_mike says, "Correct."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #67 from lizardotc:Ok, if I have 3 Porygon 2 on my bench and an active Ho-Oh with 4 Grass energy attached, how much damage can Ho-Oh do if I use Energy Conversion to change the type of 3 of the Grass energies? No additional damage?!
master_trainer_mike says, "Correct, no additional damage. We answered this exact question a year ago."
master_trainer_mike says, "You are NOT changing it into another type of BASIC ENERGY CARD."
master_trainer_mike says, "That is what Ho-oh requires to add additional damage."

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #68 from matthewssandslash:If Ditto (=P) is copying Lax and the opponent uses Exp. Plume's (I think) power to poison Ditto, is Ditto protected before Poison, or effected by Poison before protected?
darkmt_mike says, "Lax can't be poisoned."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #69 from farbsman:Re: #64 I found it on the Sanctioning info form, sorry about that.
master_trainer_mike says, "No prob."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #70 from lepi1962:Will RH basic energy cards from Expedition, and with Expedition symbol be available in any form in the future?
master_trainer_mike says, "Reverse holo energy cards form the card-e sets are not planned 9as of this time)."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #74 from yoshi1001:Are there any broader implications of this "change that doesn't change" rule, or is it just oh a Ho-oh thing for now?
master_trainer_mike says, "It has always been this way!!!!"
master_trainer_mike says, "Sorry that you guys thought otherwise."
master_trainer_mike says, "Ho-oh is the only card that I know that requires different BASIC ENERGY card on it."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #75 from marril2000:whats the status of the Pokemon Player Rewards system? still a go, sitting to be passed, or ditched :(?
master_trainer_mike says, "It is still being discussed."
master_trainer_mike says, "Once I know a specific answer, I will let you lal know."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #76 from daytongl:Any answer on ordering basic energies for Drafts?
master_trainer_mike says, "Not yet."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #77 from pigdeon_of_death:Well, what if a Ditto is copying a Ho-Oh and 3 benched Porygon2's use the power to change energies on the Ditto and Exp. Plume uses the power on Ditto but there's a tree falling in the forest and nobody's there to hear it, does it make a sound?
master_trainer_mike says, "The answer is orange."
darkmt_mike says, "Then The Ditto copies thr Tree falling noise in Dolby stereo!"
darkmt_mike says, "Answers you seek!"
master_trainer_mike says, "Thats it? That's every last pair of shoe sin the place?"
darkmt_mike says, "No more?"
master_trainer_mike says, "Oakey-doakey!"
darkmt_mike says, "Excellent then time to go!"
master_trainer_mike says, "Thank you all for coming."
master_trainer_mike says, "I need to start mailing out Delegate kits (they are stacked here in my cube)."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #78 from nopoke59:Not a quesstion but thanks to Skywolf for bing instrumental in setting up a Team Uk chat
darkmt_mike says, "Remember to submit your decks. I will post a lucky few at a time. Wish I could post them all!"
darkmt_mike says, "Bye!"
master_trainer_mike says, "See ya next week gang :)"
