master_trainer_mike says, ""
master_trainer_mike says, "Hellooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!"
master_trainer_mike grins evilly.
master_trainer_mike says, "Just got back from Las Vegas and the TO's conference and GAMA."
master_trainer_mike says, "Learned all sorts of cool stuff."
master_trainer_mike says, "I also talked with Mike Guptil, the TO for Origins and Gen Con and let him know that we will be providing super prize support for the Pokemon Events at those shows"
master_trainer_mike says, "Heck even for some Harry Potter events as well if you play that game."
master_trainer_mike says, "I'm even runninh Risk 2210 Championships so all sorts of games for all sorts of gamers!"
master_trainer_mike says, "Anyway, due to product fluctuations the exact date of the Skyridge SBZ is still being worked out."
master_trainer_mike says, "It will be in May and I will do my very best to NOT have it on Mother's Day weekend."
master_trainer_mike says, "I should have more details early next week."
master_trainer_mike says, "So, let me take a gander at the questions :)"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #574 from master_o_pokemon:So if I have a chance between Origins and GenCon, should I choose GenCon? :)
master_trainer_mike says, "Hmmm, well there will be great events at both."
master_trainer_mike says, "The Profesor Championship is at Origins and the Team Multiplay Championship and the Fan Appreciation tournament are at Gen Con."
master_trainer_mike says, "Also, the European players that won Worlds qualifiers should be at Gen Con as well so that one might be a bit bigger."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #575 from chrisbo:Boost Energy says, "the Pokemon Boost Energy is attached to cannot retreat". But you can still use Switch, DoubleGust, etc. on it, right?
master_trainer_mike says, "Correct."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #576 from chrisbo:If you attach a Crystal Energy to a pokemon with an energy card that has been changed somehow (i.e. Porygon2's Energy Converter), does Crystal Energy provide the new converted energy type, or the original energy type listed on the Basic Energy card?
master_trainer_mike says, "It would provide the original type shown on the Basic Energy card."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #577 from bodragon:Will Nintendo take over the Pokémon TCG after the license expires?
master_trainer_mike says, "That is what I hear."
master_trainer_mike says, "And that is after we are no longer involved, so Pokemon will of course, continue :)"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #578 from marril2000:ugh, cant believe i fell alseep before the chat last week. Anyways, i just wanted to say thank you for all the fun with pokemon for the last 5 years, and even after wizards is done and the cards contiune to print by who ever does it next, i will conti
master_trainer_mike says, "Cool! It is a great game! I hope to be there to win every major event."
master_trainer_mike smirks.

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #579 from marril2000:cont. 578 contiune to keep pokemon alive as possible in the New Hampshire area
master_trainer_mike says, "New Hampshire is a great state. I used to camp in the White Mountains many time as a child."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #580 from trekiev:how many days does origins and gencon last?
master_trainer_mike says, "4 days each."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #581 from m_p_douglas:Memory Berry on Flippy Charizard :) Situation #1 Charizard attemps to attack a baby pokemon, flips head for the baby check. Since the attack actually never happen, I assume the Memory Berry stay on??
master_trainer_mike says, "Correct."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #582 from skywolf9653:Mike: UKPOKEMONPRO wanted me to ask this question on his behalf, "How will the sites access goodies for local (UK) tournaments?
master_trainer_mike says, "I will be talking with the local WOTC offices about distributing stuff to their markets."
master_trainer_mike says, "Also anything sent out to Professors is handled directly by me."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #583 from marril2000:i was looking at the origins schdule of events for pokemon and was wondering if at this time, could you comment on if there will be any other pokemon events besides the fan appreation event and the TMP?
master_trainer_mike says, "Origins has the Professor Championship. Gen Con has the Fan event and the Team Championship."
master_trainer_mike says, "There will also be a Team Limited event at Origins as well as numerous Modified and Unlimited events."
master_trainer_mike says, "Also 8 player limited and booster drafts will be run as needed."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #584 from michel1be:re #574 : if there are no other qualifiers, there will be only 4 European players at GenCon Mike, and no Professors :-)
master_trainer_mike says, "I will be talking with the local offices about getting goodies out to their players as well (like at Gen Con UK for example)."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #585 from calathon:If I don't see you at an event again, Mike, I just want to thank you for all the great times. -Pop
master_trainer_mike says, "Hey, no time to get maudlin yet. Still SBZ's, battlezones, Delegates, Professors, and Con events to work through."
master_trainer_mike says, "Then we can all hug and sing Kum Ba ya together :)"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #586 from trekiev:will there be hotel tournaments after each day of gencon/origins?
master_trainer_mike says, "Not anything official no."
master_trainer_mike says, "I'm sure I will have some extra product to hand over to any Professors who want to run some unofficial events though."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #587 from skywolf9653:Mike: Another question from UKPOKEMONPRO for you: He would like to know if you are going to attend GenCon Europe?
master_trainer_mike says, "I would like to but don;t know yet if I will make it or not. If not, then I will make sure to get goodies over there for them though."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #588 from drpoke:when will you announce the new modified format?
master_trainer_mike says, "It will start on June 1st. It will get posted a few weeks before that."
master_trainer_mike says, "Not good to confuse the more casual players by announcing it too early."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #589 from skywolf9653:Mike: I had read your post on WizPOG, re: OP and such with regards to this game, do most TCG's that follow fads, following along the same path, regardless of the market they are targeted towards?
master_trainer_mike says, "For the most part yes."
master_trainer_mike says, "Of course there are many other variables involved and I am certainly not the expert either :)"
master_trainer_mike says, "Solid rules foundations, exciting game play, ease of access for new players while providing stimulating game play for the advanced player are all additional factors."
master_trainer_mike says, "I just wanted to offer more information to you. You will and should all come up with your own answers."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #590 from m_p_douglas:Memory Berry on Flippy Charizard Situation #2 Charizards is confused :( and attemps to attack, but flips tails for confusion and does 20 damage to itself. Is that an "attack", thereby making Charizard discard Memory Berry?? Or do we leave Memory Berry on Charizard?
master_trainer_mike says, "You would remove it as the Charizard attacked itself."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #591 from marril2000:Mike, will professors be needed for assistance at GenCon and/or origins?
master_trainer_mike says, "Right, I forgot to mention that."
master_trainer_mike says, "The TO (Mike Guptil) has already had more than sufficient numbers of Professor contact him though more are certainly welcome too."
master_trainer_mike says, "I talked with him this weekend at the TO conference."
master_trainer_mike says, "While he certainly can't pay for too many staff people, I told him that I will compensate all Professors that offer to help that he ends up using at the event."
master_trainer_mike says, "With product, shirts, cards, etc."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #592 from drpoke:any new announcements?
master_trainer_mike says, "Just the fact that the Skyridge SBZ will still take place in May but the exact date is still being worked out."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #593 from skywolf9653:Mike, as WotC tried to "expand" this games "market" with the advent of the professor program, could this game have gotten a more older crowd over time, much like M:TG and SW do now?
master_trainer_mike says, "Hard to say. Magic and Star Wars have been around for much longer (10 years for Magic, 8 I think for Star Wars)."
master_trainer_mike says, "I did see some of the same types of evolution (no pun intended) taking place with Pokemon but keep in mind that in both the previous games"
master_trainer_mike says, "the designers of the games AND the authors of the OP were the same."
master_trainer_mike says, "Wizards and TPC both had their own ideas about what makes good game rules, OP, support, and so on."
master_trainer_mike says, "Not to take away form them or form us but that difference in opinion hampered the game at times."
master_trainer_mike says, "Perhaps that will improve now that they are united under one roof."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #594 from m_p_douglas:I tried to Preregister at Origins, and my computer would not let me :( Is preregistration important for Origins or Gen Con?? Also if we staff for you we are not a "volunteer" for Origins or Gen Con just for Pokemon?
master_trainer_mike says, "You might want to pre-register to get a better rate on the Origins fee. Otherwise I am making sure the Pokemon events will handle as many of you ththat show up."
master_trainer_mike says, "I will ask the TO if he wants me to post his email to the Professor list so you can contact him directly."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #595 from wizo_pokemom:i hate to ask this, but how many delegated stores that wanted new accounts to run BZ have actually been able to get up and running? my store has had nothing, so has no kits...:(
master_trainer_mike says, "Several stores have been started and set up. Others are still going through the process of creating a direct sales account with us and still others have changed their minds."
master_trainer_mike says, "I certainly do not wish to cast aspersions on anyone, but I have had many instances of retails stores telling you and telling us different things."
master_trainer_mike says, "If a store is interested and has not been contacted or feels that they have not been being serviced properly please suggest they call DS at 1-800-564-1636."
master_trainer_mike says, "Of course, they are as short staffed as the rest of us but I know they want to sell stores the kits if they want them."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #596 from marril2000:i was wondeirng this earlier this week. At a Pokemon booster draft, are the players entited to as many copies of basic energy cards as they would like, or can the TO limmit the energy stock given to the players?
master_trainer_mike says, "Ultimately the TO is the one that is paying for the energies (either buying them or making the effort to gather themn together). They usually are his or her property."
master_trainer_mike says, "They can decide how to dispense them as need be."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #597 from skywolf9653:Do you feel that UD's YGO TCG, will eventually follow along the same path, as Pokemon has?
master_trainer_mike says, "Personally? Yes I do."
master_trainer_mike says, "Not anything for or against the game but it is following much of the same fad based direction that many of the other TCG's have done in the past."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #598 from m_p_douglas:When did LC come out before or after Neo Destiny? I forgot.
master_trainer_mike says, "After I think. Destiny came out in Feb 2002. I thoughty LC was closer to the summer."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #599 from skywolf9653:Mike, when are GenCon and Origons as far as dates go? I will try to attend both events, and just need to know dates.
master_trainer_mike says, "Full information on these cons is linked form our web site. Just go to www.wizards.com and then click on the events link on top and then conventions."
master_trainer_mike says, "Sorry my computer crashed again."
master_trainer_mike says, "Origins is June 26-29 and Gen Con is July 24-27."
master_trainer_mike says, "I have hopes of also making it to San Diego Comicon and running some stuff there too but that is still in the works."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #600 from skywolf9653:Was the TO conference here in Las Vegas Mike?
master_trainer_mike says, "Yes it was."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #601 from trekiev:in the professor mail, you mentioned a LCII SBZ , was that a typo?
master_trainer_mike says, "Nope, I will try and put that together for you guys."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #602 from m_p_douglas:THREE Super Battle Zones! I like that! I waited to ask my million questions, and that letter you sent out yesterday night answered most of them. Thanks -- a Masterful letter by Master Trainer Mike.
master_trainer_mike says, "Hey, the list exists to keep you in the know. My apologies that I don;t post more often."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #603 from m_p_douglas:Has anyone had a problem with the very lastest version of the DCI Reporter not downloading the Finals along with the rest of the tournament?
master_trainer_mike says, "One person mentioned having some trouble with DCI reporter and Windows XP. Otherwise I haven't hreard anything."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #604 from soslowpoke:any idea on whats being rotated out of modified this june?
master_trainer_mike says, "Yup :)"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #605 from lepi1962:Any comments on the news that Nintendo will release English ADV cards at the same time as WOTC will release LC2?
master_trainer_mike says, "They have not told us that that is what their plans are nor was it announced at GAMA or Toy Fair or any other similar event so I honestly don't know."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #606 from marril2000:mike, as the wizards warehouses get emptied out, if by any chance wizards happens to stubble across some kind of energy stock pile, and there is time to assemble it, do you think energy draft kits could possibly be tossed together and disctributed to
master_trainer_mike says, "YOu know we have some energy left over. I hope to distribute it through the LC2 SBZ."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #607 from m_p_douglas:40 Million NeoPets players -- if only 10% buy Neopets the Trading Card Game, that will be comparable to Magic's 6 Million DCI players...
master_trainer_mike says, "We can all dream :)"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #608 from marril2000:cont. 606: professor that request them (with a limmit)?
master_trainer_mike says, "There are all sorts of discussions abolut getting stuff out to the Professors and players as we finsih up our involvement with Pokemon."
master_trainer_mike says, "MOT to ruin the game but to help you keep it alive."
master_trainer_mike says, "Besides what good would 270,000 lightning energies do me?"
master_trainer_mike smirks.

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #609 from drpoke:The reports for the delegates are due on March 31st right. Does the reports need to be post marked 31st?
master_trainer_mike says, "Yes please."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #610 from trekiev:any chance of seeing trophy prizes at origins and/or gencon
master_trainer_mike says, "mmmmmmmmmmmaybe"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #611 from kingkyle3:Not Pokemon Related but...do you follow NCAA men's BBall? If so, who do you want to win it all?
master_trainer_mike says, "Is Syracuse in it this year? Go Orangemen!"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #612 from lepi1962:Are you planning a promo card for Pokemon Movie 5 in May?
master_trainer_mike says, "Not that I have heard of."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #613 from soslowpoke:Care to share on what's being rotated outta modified in June? ;)
master_trainer_mike says, "not yet :)"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #614 from drpoke:Is there a decision yet as far as getting extra energy's for the drafts that we do? Can we buy them?
master_trainer_mike says, "It is not a simple process to set up (they are not in sales inventory, etc). I will do what I can to get them out to you guys though."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #615 from lepi1962:Does Base Set Vulpix have a corrected version?
master_trainer_mike says, "Geeze, its been so long since that was asked. Well gang, does it?"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #616 from drpoke:Does TPC and Wotc have the same printers for the tcg cards? Or are they different?
master_trainer_mike says, "First answer, that is propietary information, second answer, I honestly don't know."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #617 from lepi1962:Since Suicune Black star promo is distributed with DVD/VHS only in USA, do you have any plans to make this card available to others outside USA?
master_trainer_mike says, "I haven't heard of any plans for it, no."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #618 from m_p_douglas:Re:605 What happens if we have Nintendos cards out can we play them.....
master_trainer_mike says, "I honestly don't know what the schedules for product release are."
master_trainer_mike says, "Realistically though, you would not be able to use other Pokemon cards (ones we didn't create) in our remaining OP events because it would not be fair to the new company for us to try aand make tournament rullings on their products."
master_trainer_mike says, "They will have their own ideas on how their cards work and perhaps on how they interact with our cards."
master_trainer_mike says, "It would be confusing to the public and not fair tol the new company for us to do that."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #619 from marril2000:a possible problem i see with distributing the energys through SBZ kits could be the fact that the store will keep them and stash them away (or possibly toss them out afterward)... which most likely wouldn't help the professors why are trying to build
master_trainer_mike says, "I am aware of that"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #621 from kingkyle3:Re: 611 Sweet! I want 'Cuse to go all the way too =)
master_trainer_mike says, "BOOYAH!!!"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #622 from drpoke:So did you buy the Pokemon ruby and sapphire games for GBA?
master_trainer_mike says, "Not yet. I never managed to finish my red or Silver version."
master_trainer_mike says, "Heck, I only finish about 10% of the video or computer games I ever start. Too much other stuff to do!"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #623 from purity1:my chatroom wants to know......who would win, ninja pirates or zombie cowboys?
master_trainer_mike says, "Having played an excellent Zombie Cowboy in a game of Deadlands, I would choose them."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #624 from trekiev:after your involvement in the game, will the backs change?
master_trainer_mike says, "I have no idea."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #625 from soslowpoke:What sets will the LCII cards be taken from?
master_trainer_mike says, "The Neo block."
master_trainer_mike says, "And a few small surpises."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #626 from m_p_douglas:Any Chance someone could put a floor on how low your DCI rating could go. Some of the little kids might get sad about going way under 1600?
master_trainer_mike says, "The ELO system is based on a zero sum system. Meaning that if you gain points by winning they have to come from someone else losing them."
master_trainer_mike says, "If you averaged every players rating, you would get 1600. This is why it starts at that number instead of 0."
master_trainer_mike says, "So the math doesn;t work if you cap it."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #627 from skywolf9653:Mike: With Regards to rulings, whose "property" are those rulings? WotC's or TPC's?
master_trainer_mike says, "I don't believe anyone "owns" them per se. The rulings we have given were based upon participation in our sanctioned play events."
master_trainer_mike says, "The Pokemon Company may very well change many of them and that would be within their righst to do as the future license holder."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #628 from marril2000:has it been considered to distribute professor shirts through Super BattleZone II (and III). what about professor points for those who decide to stick around and help run SBZ II (and III)?
master_trainer_mike says, "All sorts of things are considered. Keep in mind that these all cost money and I can only do so much."
master_trainer_mike says, "However, all Professors who make it to the Professor Chmapionship will walk away with a shirt (while supplies last of course)."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #629 from m_p_douglas:Re: 622 Bought mine Today and Guidebook. Holding grudges or making boycoots will just hurt everyone.
master_trainer_mike says, "I'm assuming that is from the game?"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #630 from puritys_echidna:zombie-cowboys?! are you MAD?!?! the ninja-pirates are enemies of fate brought together by some unknown force in order to cause carnage and evil! pffft.. zombie-cowboys....
master_trainer_mike says, "All I know is that NO ONE was able to kill my zombie-cowboy! No matter what they threw at me I survived."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #631 from lepi1962:Which cards will be in Jamboree (vending, WOTC own, or)?
master_trainer_mike says, "Ahhhh grasshopper, wait and see :)"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #632 from m_p_douglas:Re:626 that is why you start at 1600, then. A rating of 1495 sounds quite high really, much better than negative 105.
master_trainer_mike says, "We did not invent the ELO rating system. It was created for the Chess Federation. It is also used in ranking Tennis PLayers and so on."
master_trainer_mike says, "You would have to find the PhD mathematician that createdn it and ask him or her."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #633 from skywolf9653:Mike: What about, TMP, is that a WotC idea, or did that come from TPC?
master_trainer_mike says, "I invented Team Multiplay (with help from DMTM, Andrew Finch, Kierin, MTP, and so on)."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #634 from drpoke:Do you think that there might be a chance that TPC would ask you (WOTC) to continue the current system of ratings? I know that DCI did a ranking system for other Tcg's? For a price I think?
master_trainer_mike says, "We have not been contacted about any plans for op."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #635 from farbsman:MTM, I did my first sanctioned BZ this past Tuesday, Do I have to send in the Event Report Summary if I use DCI Reporter to turn in the results?
master_trainer_mike says, "No you do not. The electronic submission is sufficient."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #636 from purity1:ech is just mad cause i bet you'd pick the cowboys. gimme my $20, ech!!!
master_trainer_mike says, "Hey Ninjas are cool, but my Zombie Cowboy was unstoppable!"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #637 from master_trainer_red:do you think the people who hold the license next will make a sanctioned play format
master_trainer_mike says, "I honestly don't know what their plans are."
master_trainer_mike says, "You could look at their web sites and see what they have done so far in Japan (make sure someone can read Japanese)."
master_trainer_mike says, "But I don;t know if they will try and use the same systems over here either."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #638 from drpoke:do we still have to file a month ahead of any sanctioned bz tournaments we do? Can we do online sanctioning and filling out the paper work and sending it to you?
master_trainer_mike says, "You should send in the form a month prior if you can. Online sanctioning is fine for your opwn events but we ask that retail based programs (like Friday Night Magic or Jedi Nights or MLB Saturdays or BattleZone) have the paperwork sent it."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #639 from trekiev:where is dmtm and pat?
master_trainer_mike says, "Not sure whete the dark one is. Pat is still out on maturnity leave with his wife and son."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #640 from m_p_douglas:ELO Rating System...Makes sense...I thought the Rating System seemed very similiar to the one used for Chess.
master_trainer_mike says, "There ya go :)"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #641 from puritys_echidna::grumbles and gives pure the $20: you know... if dmtm were here, HE would have voted for ninja-pirates....
master_trainer_mike says, "Only if they ate maple bars."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #642 from kingkyle3:Do you plan on playing pokemon when you lose the license?
master_trainer_mike says, "Hmm, let's see. I have boxes and boxes and boxes of this game and I like to play it."
master_trainer_mike says, "I think so, yes :)"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #643 from master_trainer_red:what about the pokemon center in ny did wizards start that up and if so will it be shut down
master_trainer_mike says, "Nope, that is not ours. That stores is owned and operation by Pokemon USA, a division of the Pokemon Company."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #644 from soslowpoke:Aww congrats to Pat. Either you or DMTM have kids?
master_trainer_mike says, "Nope. We're too immature :)"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #645 from drpoke:question #638 my battlezone will be starting soon as the store has been contacted by DS, I dont know when the kits will come in, if I sanction now and the kits dont come can i use the same dci sanctioning # for the next tournament? Or do I have to can
master_trainer_mike says, "You should be able to use the number. If some issue comes up make sure to contact Linda Roberts and she will help you through it."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #646 from fix_r:Any news on the Simpsons TCG?
master_trainer_mike says, "It looks fairly cool, expecially if you really know the show."
master_trainer_mike says, "I am more of a casual viewer so I don't get all of the quotes."
master_trainer_mike says, "BTW, any of you guys board gamers?"
master_trainer_mike says, "We are looking to start sanctioning Avalon Hill board games this year (I'm working on it)."
master_trainer_mike says, "Look for very cool prizes for the Risk 2210 tournaments being held at Origins and Gen Con."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #647 from purity1:i can't wait for the sanctioned risk!
master_trainer_mike says, "It is a fun game isn't it :)"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #648 from m_p_douglas:Re 637 They gave out "winners" cards at a Japanese Tournaments, so they must have been doing things over there...Don't forget Japan is maybe the size of Florida and Georgia -- a little bit smaller than us. WWW.PokeShool.com keeps track of some of Japans Websites. I was just thinking how many support websites we have out there for us besides WotCs web site. Quite a few.
master_trainer_mike says, "Some of their OP was later based on some of the things we have done over here. Other aspects follow their own visions of what works."
master_trainer_mike says, "It will be interesting to see what programs they start up for you guys."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #649 from m_p_douglas:www.pokeschool.com sorry about the spelling error :(
master_trainer_mike says, "fixed"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #650 from master_trainer_red:on pojo they said that nintendo made a division for the pokemon tcg is that true or false
master_trainer_mike says, "Geez guys, you are asking the wrong person, I don;t work there and I don't know."
master_trainer_mike says, "Any other questions gang?"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #651 from drpoke:Do you personally think that you will be able to play with the new Pokemon cards?
master_trainer_mike says, "Me? Do you mean in their events? Sure."
master_trainer_mike says, "But I spend a lot of money on movies, video games, my social life, rpg's, minis, board games, and so on."
master_trainer_mike says, "Since I doubt I will get free Pokemon anymore, we'll see."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #652 from m_p_douglas:What breeds of Neopet did you choose? A majestic Bug??
master_trainer_mike says, "I have an Aisha (the iconic character) and a Gelert."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #653 from skywolf9653:Mike, do you final numbers on the number of new stores, that signed up as a result of the Delegate Program?
master_trainer_mike says, "Still bieng processed."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #654 from trekiev:when will the list of new master professors be made? i think a few of our local TO's have gotten their points
master_trainer_mike says, "I will try and check the lists and update them at the end of this month."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #655 from drpoke:#651 after is wotc is done with the brand, may be will be competing with each other then?
master_trainer_mike says, "Maybe :)"
