by Team Compendium


master_trainer_mike says, "Welcome to another Pokemon Chat my friends!"
master_trainer_mike says, "I am back from my sojourn in San Diego, heloing with our NFL game!"
master_trainer_mike says, "A BIG thank you to Pokemom and Lance for coming in to help us at the last minute!"
master_trainer_mike says, "Pokemon Professors are good at many things besides just Pokemon!"
master_trainer_mike says, "You may have noticed that we have just about every Super BattleZone location finally scheduled and up on our web site."
master_trainer_mike says, "The FAQ for that event should be posted soon!"
master_trainer_mike says, "I hope you all get out to it as there are very cool trophies and other prizes to win."
master_trainer_mike says, "Heck, I wish I made one for myself they are so cool!"
master_trainer_mike says, "You may have noticed that Rainbow Energy in Aquapolis is slightly different as it says place a damage counter instead of do 10 damage."
master_trainer_mike says, "That is now how Rainbow energy is to be played."
master_trainer_mike says, "This matches up with the Japanese rules as well."
master_trainer_pat says, "Really?"
master_trainer_pat says, "Wow"
master_trainer_mike says, "The only effect I know that may change is attaching Rainbow energy to a Pokemon that already had a Metal Energy on it."
master_trainer_mike says, "Now the Metal WILL NOT prevent that damage counter placement."
master_trainer_mike says, "Let us know if you come up with other rules changes fomr this, mkay?"
master_trainer_pat says, "mkay"
master_trainer_mike says, "And now on with the show!"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #737 from bluetoise:Why the web site for the Asia League haven't update yet?We all Asians have wait forever for the answer!
master_trainer_mike says, "That information is handled through the Australian office. You would need to ask them that :)"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #738 from lizardotc:Some players maintain that benching Blastoise and then reactivating it will allow a second use of Jet Stream. Can you explain why this is , or is not, correct
master_trainer_mike says, "That does not work."
master_trainer_mike says, "Just like the old Gengar's Curse ruling, Benching something does NOT end the "once per turn" limitation."
master_trainer_mike says, "Now if you used it, then devolved it and then reevolved it, then it is a different Pokemon and could use its ability."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #739 from lizardotc:Is there an error on the 'Crystal' Nidoking, and if so, how should it be played?
master_trainer_mike says, "Dunno, we don't have that card yet."
master_trainer_mike says, "sorry"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #740 from indigomaster33:about the 60HP on the hitmonchan promo, is that going to be errated?

master_trainer_pat says, "We'll just have to ask..."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #741 from steve_p:if time permits, can TOs run their SBZ as best-of-3?

master_trainer_mike says, "Ummm.....no."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #746 from mt_icecold:Ok, Ive got a Ditto active, last turn I attached a boost energy whil my opponent had a light dragonite active that was now Ko'd. My opponent plays down a muk and attacks me with A Ho-oh that has 1 rainbow and 3 fire, and Tm 01 attached and...
master_trainer_pat says, "You can't attach Boost Energy to Ditto"
master_trainer_pat says, "Ditto isn't an evolved Pokemon"
master_trainer_pat says, "and copying an evolved Pokemon doesn't make it one."
master_trainer_mike says, "Maybe we need to make a baby Ditto, we could call him Dittee!!"
master_trainer_mike smirks.

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #743 from tehairyclefairy:Do you HAVE to pick out exactly 5 cards for Town Volunteers, or can it be UP to 5 or nothing at all?
master_trainer_mike says, "Yup, it works like Time Capsule did. If you have 5 you MUST choose 5, if you have less thanb 5 you can still play it and choose all of what you do have."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #744 from soslowpoke:When will that Aquapolis article you were telling us get posted on the web?
master_trainer_mike says, "Dunno. I will ask about that."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #745 from steelixownzu:Why are the Super BZ's not at the biggest BZ's like you said? There mainly where GC's were, and pretty much look like a GC
master_trainer_mike says, "Guys, we chose the locations based upon geographic locations and places that expressed interest as well as folks we have worked with before."
master_trainer_mike says, "If your location wants to run this sort of thing, they actually need to let us know. We don;t read minds."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #753 from farbsman:Crystal Energy states that it provides Energy of all types (colors) of basic energy attached to the Pokemon Crystal Energy is attached to, does that mean that if you have a fighting energy and fire energy attached to the pokemon it provides one energy
master_trainer_pat says, "Crystal actually just provides one energy from the look at the top right corner of the card"
master_trainer_pat says, "so it would either make one Fire or one Fighting."
master_trainer_pat says, "It's sort of a limited Rainbow Energy"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #747 from marril2000:hey mike, this weekend the local store i run battlezone at decided to do a pokemon DCI event this weekend, and i was just wondering if there is anything special i would need to do in DCI Reporter other than listing my name as head judge?

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #748 from skywolf9653:Mike, I have a question re: Superbattlezone, will any advertising be done on the part of WotC to assist us with promotion of the event?
master_trainer_mike says, "We are listing the sites on our web site. I will be talkinmg about them through the Profesor list and on the message boards."
master_trainer_mike says, "That is basically it."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #750 from chrisbo:If I devolve my Active Pokemon (using Hyper Devo Spray, etc.) that has been trapped by Murkrow's "Mean Look", will that permit me to retreat it?
master_trainer_pat says, "Yes, I think it even states this right after the 'Mean Look attack"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #751 from enik_the_sleestak:what, if any, side events could/should be sanctioned to run concurrently at SBZ?
master_trainer_mike says, "We don't require any side events to be run as this event is open to players of all ages. If a particular location wanted to do so, they certainly could."
master_trainer_mike says, "This is not as big as a Gym Challenge, more of a celebration for BZ stores."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #752 from wizo_pokemom:did you get to go to the Super Bowl, MTM? if so, who were you rooting for?
master_trainer_mike says, "No I didn't make it. I rooted for Tampa."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #754 from chrisbo:If I have a Crystal Energy attached and I do an attack that says "discard all Fire energy", if I discard all my Fire energy cards first does the Crystal still have to be discarded too since there are no more Fire cards attached?
master_trainer_pat says, "You have to discard all the Energy at once."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #755 from chrisbo:Is there any way you can think of (other than Tyranitar's Dark Aura) that a Crystal Energy card can be used to provide Darkness or Metal energy?
master_trainer_mike says, "Not that I know of, yet."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #756 from tehairyclefairy:Warp Energy's effect is one of coming into play, i.e. Light Dragonite's power can't block it when the Dragonite's active, correct?
master_trainer_pat says, "Correct."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #757 from marril2000:for SuperBattleZone, would each professor thats a judge get a master professor point or would it just be the entire event's head judge that gets a point?
master_trainer_mike says, "Just the head judge. This is basically a slightly larger than normal tournament with extra prizes we sent out because we want you all to have fun."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #758 from m_p_douglas:What happens when a Crystal or Rainbow Energy is attached to a Crystal Pokemon. The Crystal Pokemon have a Pokemon Power that says when you attach certain colors of energy to that Pokemon, then the Crystal Pokemon Becomes the same type as that energy until the end of the turn.
master_trainer_pat says, "You would choose when you attach it(if there was other Energies attached) if not than you wouldn't get to choose, it just provides colorless."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #759 from steelixownzu:If Ditto has 2 Crystal Energy and a Electric Energy on, and copies a Starmie ( Revelation), and uses core blast to KO a Starmie, then the opponent sketches ditto, and uses Core Blast, and chooses any energy, how much damage is done to ditto? =)
master_trainer_mike says, "what?!?!?!?!?!?!"
master_trainer_pat says, "Bhah!"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #760 from enik_the_sleestak:does SBZ get elevated k-value since it's a "quasi-premier" event? (I'd like to able to play in it instead of always head judging as necessary to get elevated k-value for the events)
master_trainer_mike says, "It is a 24k event."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #761 from pokemonfighter:in sbz does the top player that is 15 and over get a trophey or does the top 15 and up players get tropheys
master_trainer_mike says, "THere are 2 trophies to win. The highest placing 15 and up player gets the Senior Champion Trophy."
master_trainer_mike says, "The highest placing player aged 14 and under gets the Junior Champion Trophy"
master_trainer_mike says, "There is also a Best Sportsman award for players age 12 and under as well as booster packs and other prizes to be won."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #768 from bluetoise:In TMP,poison & burn damage is counted after each player's turn or between team's turn?
master_trainer_pat says, "After each player's turn."
master_trainer_pat says, "Oww!"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #763 from skywolf9653:Mike, in the Aqua set, is there a NEW "Crystal Energy" card? I don't have any of the set yet, so I am not certain.

master_trainer_mike says, "When we have the time."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #766 from marril2000:any word on possible locations still in the running for worlds 2003?
master_trainer_mike says, "Not at this time."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #767 from m_p_douglas:Should SBZ have Finals, or is lots of Swiss Rounds enough?
master_trainer_mike says, "It should cut to the top 8, and then run standard single elim."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #769 from enik_the_sleestak:can you please explain the light dragonite w/ boost energy just to clarify how it should be played (when , if at all, do you discard boost energy as the card text reads)?
master_trainer_pat says, "You would discard the Boost only at the end of the turn it was attched during. If it's not discarded then, it won't be discarded."
master_trainer_mike says, "This is all assuming Light Dragonite is active and its Pokemon Power is working when you attach the boost energy of course."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #770 from indigomaster33:so if we were to say evolve a clefairy from a cleffa, could we use boost energy on it?
master_trainer_pat says, "Yup."
master_trainer_mike says, "Sure."
master_trainer_pat nods solemnly.

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #771 from daytongl:Will all Professors who volunteer for SBZ get Master Professor Points?
master_trainer_mike says, "Nope, only the listed TO and head judge."
master_trainer_mike says, "However, I will mention that I am including some extra product for the TO to give out amongst the staff if that helps."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #772 from steve_p:will the SBZs be two separate tourneys (14-under and 15+), or only one tourney using age-modified?
master_trainer_mike says, "Only 1 age modified tournament. Though some locations may choose to run 2 due to space limitaions. That is for the TO to decide and get back to us about that."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #774 from tehairyclefairy:Re#743 (Town Volunteers) - are you certain MTM as it's not what the card says, it's just what you say it implies... just to be sure! =)
master_trainer_mike says, "It is written just like Time Capsule was. You must choose 5 if you have 5 when you play it. You can't CHOOSE to pull less than 5 if you have that many."

master_trainer_mike says, "Soon."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #777 from nopoke59:and re #753... Crystal copies the converted energy type if a card has been Porygon2'd
master_trainer_mike says, "Read what Crystal says, it says it proivides 1 Energy of all Types of BASIC Energy cards attached to the Pokemon."
master_trainer_mike says, "This is AGAIN the HO-OH ruling."
master_trainer_mike says, "Changing what type of energy a BASIC energy card provides DOES make it count as a different type of energy card."
master_trainer_mike says, "Whgich is whty you would discard a Rainbow energy when something says discard all fire energy."
master_trainer_mike says, "BUT if it said discard all BASIC fire energy, you would NOT discard a Rainbow energy."
master_trainer_mike says, "Crystal works the same way."
master_trainer_mike says, "It only provides the type of energy form the ACTUAL PHYSICAL BASIC energy cards that are there."
master_trainer_mike says, "NOT what they may be changed to providing!"
master_trainer_mike says, "Mkay?"

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #779 from risingdragons:If I attached a boost energy on my Light Dragonite last turn, and my opponent somehow disabled Dragonite's power, does the energy get discarded (discard boost energy on the turn it was played,which it isn't)?
master_trainer_pat says, "No."
master_trainer_pat shakes her/his head.

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #780 from tehairyclefairy:Mike I'd like to ask, have kits been shipped out to the UK in time for our first SBZ?
master_trainer_mike says, "SBZ? That is up to the individual offices whether they are running that or not."
master_trainer_mike says, "So far, I have not heard of any place but our office doing so.,"

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #803 from neo_fox:Sorry I'm late, and sorry if you've already answerd this... How is the Rainbow Energy in Aquapolis suppose to be played; as is or with the old text?
master_trainer_pat says, "Use the new text."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #781 from m_p_douglas:The website for SBZ mentioned the alternative Pokemon Scoring system, and "Modified Swiss." Is that Age Modified Swiss where we enter age groups into the computer? (To those reading this There would be Two groups then 15+, and 14 and under. The 14 and under group would be sorted by the computer as ONE group, but the computer would try to pair the 10 and under kids with 10 and under kids when possible.)
master_trainer_mike says, "Correct, run 1 tournament using the agemodified swiss system."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #782 from tehairyclefairy:Mike any idea on why BZ promos like Rocket's Scizor have started to appear on ebay from Belgium auctioners, when no Professor or BZ organiser in the world as far as I know has them yet?
master_trainer_mike says, "Nope, feel free to wend us the links so we can track down who is stealing them and have them killed."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #783 from wizo_pokemom:have you let the SBZ TOs know about the professors..who they are, and what they're capable of, re: judging? It seems like many of them don't know, and say they don't need the help since they do DCI, but not Pokemon
master_trainer_mike says, "That will be sent out soon."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #784 from m_p_douglas:Re 748: Go to the Local Section of the Paper NOW if you want to get the word out.

master_trainer_pat says, "Only that turn in which the Boost was attached."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #788 from bodragon:Would you consider organizing BattleZone locations by city and state instead of an alphabetical listing of stores?

master_trainer_pat says, "It will count as both types, but only provides one Energy"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #801 from marril2000:hmm... if a location decides to run two age modified swiss events, does that possibly mean there would be 2 head judges and possible 2 professors getting master professor points (if both head judges are professors)?
