darkmaster_steve presents the speaker with question #1 from chrisbo:
Due to chat server problems, I didn't get a chance to thank Dark Apprentice Steve for doing a fine job last week. He's got "the right stuff" to handle this unruly mob; I think he should be upgraded to "Dark Trainer Steve" (maybe not Master just yet..
darkmaster_steve says, "Thank you very much! I appriciate that!"
darkmaster_steve says, "Well, I am just pokin my head in, everyone have fun!"

master_trainer_pat says, "Hello everybody!"
master_trainer_pat says, "I think MT Mike has some tidbits for you..."
master_trainer_mike says, "So a few announcements, first of all the next promo card due out is the promo Cleffa #31 which you can earn through Season 2 of the Pokemon League Year 2."
master_trainer_mike says, "Second of all, the Leaning Tower of Pika has been finished and it is a beauty! It is a scale model of the Leaning Tower of Pisa made from Italian Pikachu cards."
master_trainer_mike says, "It looks great and makes me want to upgrade the Space Weedle."
master_trainer_mike says, "Further projects are on the way."
master_trainer_mike says, "And a hint about the promo Celffa card."
master_trainer_mike says, "If you call the existing Cleffa crad, Cleffa-Elm, then you would introduce him to the new promo Cleffa card as Cleffa-Bill :)"
master_trainer_pat says, "We're still working on getting some new forums set up on the Pokemon section of our website...our latest word was that we could hopefully have that up and running by the end of next week. (Cross you fingers on this one though)"
master_trainer_mike says, "And we are working on getting new Pokemon content on our web site for you as well (my fingers hurt from all the typing)......"
master_trainer_pat says, "Metal and Darkness energy are basic types, but their cards are considered non-basic energy cards like DCE(double colorless energy)"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #3 from gunterl:

master_trainer_mike says, "WSell promo #31 "could" be called Cleffa - Bill :)"

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #4 from gunterl:
When will wizards stop accepting creat a card entrys?

master_trainer_pat says, "Cleffa"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #6 from chrisbo:
If I have more than one Darkness or Metal Energy attached to a pokemon, are the effects cumulative? (i.e. two will cause/prevent 20 extra damage, three will cause/prevent 30, etc.)
master_trainer_mike says, "Yes they are."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #7 from chrisbo:
If my active pokemon was hit by Croconaw's Jaw Clamp last turn, would the act of evolving allow it to retreat, be switched, etc.?
master_trainer_pat says, "Yes it would."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #8 from chrisbo:
When a pokemon's power does damage, does that count as the POKEMON doing damage (for the purpose of metal energy effects, for instance), or are powers considered SEPARATE from the pokemon they belong to?
master_trainer_pat says, "Yes, it does."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #9 from scrye_fung:
And that Leaning Tower of Pika ... that'll be a WizPOG exclusive?
master_trainer_mike says, "Yup! I'll have pictures and a write up on te Space Weedle page soon."

master_trainer_pat says, "We're still trying to get to them all..."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #14 from pikabruce:
Suppose your Lt. Surge's Electrode is opposite an undamaged Wooper, and the Wooper attacks and causes damage, triggering the Shock Blast Pokemon Power. Suppose you flip tails, tails, then heads. How much damage (if any) is on the Wooper?
master_trainer_mike says, "Zero!!!"
master_trainer_pat says, "None"
master_trainer_pat says, "Wooper is resistant to Lightning."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #15 from soslowpoke:
will there be a murkow promo?
master_trainer_pat says, "If there will be, we couldn't tell you about it."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #16 from pikapichu:
if I have a Rainbow energy, if I want it to be a grass, and have Meganium's Power out, is it 2 or 1?
master_trainer_mike says, "Actually it is ALWAYS grass (and all opther basic types), but it would produce 2 grass."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #17 from soslowpoke:
is cleffa earned the same way as b-day pika?
master_trainer_pat says, "No, the same way as Togepi"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #18 from cyborg_raptor:
When do we get a promo Magby? Magby rules!
master_trainer_mike says, "Or a baby Weeedle?? We could call him Weedie!!"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #20 from trovtwo:
I have a theroy,since you find togepy in The first city,and ZTogepy is the first promo card ,could that mean next seasons migt have to do with Bugsy and his pokemon and his city,and since Whitney is in the ythird gym,wouldnt it make more sense to put Cleffa in season three?Since she has a ClefsiryA?
master_trainer_mike says, "My friend, first find spell check, second get out and get more fresh air :)"

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #21 from bigdaddysnorlax:
If I have a Brock's Protection Trainer attached to my Pok»mon, can I also attach a Pok»mon Tool type Trainer to it?
master_trainer_pat says, "Yes, you can because Brock's Protection is not a Poke-Tool"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #22 from cool_clefairy121:
how will surfing and flying pikaghus be distrubuted
master_trainer_mike says, "Pikaghus???????"

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #23 from bigdaddysnorlax:
I use Brock's Ninetales' Shapeshift PP to attach an evolution card, and I also attach a Miracle Berry Trainer. My Opponent uses an Attack that Confuses Ninetales. Will I be able to use the Miracle Berry to cure it and keep the evolution card from being discarded?
master_trainer_pat says, "No, you can't because you can only trigger Miracle Berry between turns."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #24 from chaos_planeswalker:
can my Zapdos Lv.40 kill itself and the other players pokemon?
master_trainer_mike says, "Yes it could if they wree all already hurt."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #25 from bigdaddysnorlax:
If Lt. Surge's Electrode starts Shock Blasting and it triggers itself several times, do you figure the Damage for each cycle (Weakness, Resistance, etc.), or do you keep going until you flip heads and then figure the total Damage?
master_trainer_mike says, "Geez guyts why are you making this so hard."
master_trainer_mike says, "First of all look at the order of resolving damage. Pokemon powers all resolve or are checked, THEN damage is applied. If that damage triggers andother Pokemon power check,, so be it. Just repeat the above process."
master_trainer_mike says, "So trigger, damage, trigger , damage, etc"

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #26 from pikapichu:
Due to our Postal office system, my Create a Card idea thing was returned after 2 weeks, is it too late
master_trainer_pat says, "You still have some time, please get it in to us soon."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #27 from bigdaddysnorlax:
In the Neo Rules guide, it says to factor in Energy Card Effects of the Attacking Pok»mon in step (E). On the Metal Energy Card it says to reduce Damage by 10 (if the Pok»mon is not Metal) before Weakness and Resistance (which are listed as steps C & D). Does the card text override the normal order, is it in error or am I missing something here?
master_trainer_mike says, "Good catch! Didn't see that one, I have no idea!! :)"
master_trainer_mike says, "We'll get bac k to you on that one."
master_trainer_mike says, "The rule book is in error on that. Darkness energy IS figured out in Step E (after weakness and Resistance) but the Metal energy's effects DO have to be resolved BEFORE step E obviously."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #28 from trovtwo:
Were the Dark Gym Leader t shirt come from Wizards or did the gym leaders make them?
master_trainer_pat says, "I've never heard of those."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #29 from chaos_planeswalker:
what is teh next Neo set called
master_trainer_pat says, "We aren't quite ready to say yet."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #30 from chrisbo:
2-part question (my HTML buffer is too small): At last Friday night's R&D chat, you said if a Metal Energy was attached to Lt.Surge's Electrode, its "Shock Blast" power would to 10 to each active pokemon. However, previous rulings said that...
master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #31 from chrisbo:
...said that a failed confusion on a non-metal pokemon would end up dealing 0 damage (due to -10 for *EACH* sentence on the Metal Energy card). So wouldn't the Shock Blast also deal 10 to the opponent, but only 0 to the Electrode for the same reason?
master_trainer_mike says, "Good catch, I was incorrect on Friday. In this case the triggered Power would do 10 damage to the Defending Pokemon and zero damage to itslef as Metal energy has 2 effects on it. One reducing damage done to that Pokemon by 10 and 1 effect reducing all damage done BY that Pokemon by 10."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #32 from chaos_planeswalker:
what are all of the NEO promos?
master_trainer_pat says, "So far we have29. Marril...Neo Genesis release promo, 30. Togepi...Pokemon League promo(year 2), 31. Cleffa"
master_trainer_pat says, "more on the way!"

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #33 from bigdaddysnorlax:
If you use a Lt. Surge Trainer to play Ditto from your hand to the Active spot, and he is facing a Pok»mon with a Pok»mon Power that activates when the Pok»mon is "played from your hand", will Ditto be able to use that Power?
master_trainer_pat says, "No you wouldn't, it's put into play as Ditto, then Ditto's power activates."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #35 from chrisbo:
Also, if I had a Rocket's Zapdos with a Buzzap'd Electrode (2L), 1 Rainbow, and 1 Metal Energy, would the net recoil damage be zero [20 - 10(1st Metal sentence) - 10(2nd Metal sentence) = 0]?
master_trainer_mike says, "Correct :)"

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #36 from chaos_planeswalker:
whats the deal with Lt. Surge's secret plan what are all teh questions about?
master_trainer_mike says, "lousy card......"
master_trainer_pat says, "You got us. It's simply a rotten card."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #37 from trovtwo:
Can you use cleffa artwork from the create a cards on promo cleffa(like nmine:})?
master_trainer_mike says, "Hmmmm, no :)"

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #38 from cyborg_raptor:
Have you guys got a name picked out for Neo 2?
master_trainer_pat says, "Yes, but we're not ready to say."
master_trainer_mike says, "We would have to kill ourselves if we told you"
master_trainer_mike says, "or they'd take our donuts away!!!"

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #39 from daghettochild:
I haven't purchase z neo teme deck,so what is char?
master_trainer_pat says, "Char is in the rulebook as a new status effect. The Quilava in Hot Foot has it."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #40 from trovtwo:
Will there be a weekly poke newsletter soon?On the web I mean.
master_trainer_mike says, "We are working on ongoing articles for our web site."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #41 from chaos_planeswalker:
my Lanturn has 1electric and 1 rainbow energy attached to it i attack with floodlight how much damage will it do?
master_trainer_pat says, "It will only do 20, because you're using the Rainbow energy to pay for the attack."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #43 from chaos_planeswalker:
i use pichus attack zzzzzap! against a haunter(fossil) and a charmander(rocket) is on the bench transparency goes through. i want to know if charmander will recieve damage
master_trainer_mike says, "Charmander does take damage, Haunter's Transparency only prevenst effects against Haunter. It does NOT prevent the effect itself."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #44 from aaron_the_great:
Metal Energy can only prevent damage by attacks, right? Or can it also prevent damage by powers, trainers, poison, and Darkness and Rainbow energy on the same Pok»mon?
master_trainer_pat says, "No, Metal will prevent damage done by anything, however Darkness energy actually 'places a damage counter' on your Pokemon. This is different than damage. So it would prevent Rainbow Energy's damage but not Darkness'"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #45 from profpoke:
Since the TCG is based off the GB, shouldn't Togepi be a baby pokemon? In that case Tegetic would be basic ( ooohh *overwelmed with power* hehe )
master_trainer_mike says, "Sure, but it ain't our game :)"

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #46 from bigdaddysnorlax:
If my opponent gets to USE my Prof Elm when I flip tails for Chaos Gym, would they be able to USE another Trainer during my turn if I flip tails again? You said "no" a few weeks ago, but Chaos Gym says the opponent may "USE" it, rather than "PLAY" it.
master_trainer_pat says, "You're right, the terminology is different"
master_trainer_mike says, "I was wrong.... ..

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #47 from pokesensei:
More projects are on the way?You better let us in on them this time or you`ll be in for it!I want to send you a few hundred or so the cards for it! ;-)What is the next one up?
master_trainer_mike says, "We are looking into ways to get the public involved in the next ones. How many foreign Pokemon cards do you own????"

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #48 from soslowpoke:
Will Flying and Surfing Pikachu have the new neo style(weakness/resistance swirls, black text, etc) when they get printed in Englsih or will they be like how they were in the pika set?
master_trainer_pat says, "Dunno."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #49 from trovtwo:

master_trainer_mike says, "Teeuwyn is a she first of all. But I have yet to see the new decks."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #50 from chaos_planeswalker:
i have an Eevee lv.7 with 4fire energys and i evolve it to vaporeon can i search my deck for a flareon and attach it to it by using its power chain reaction?
master_trainer_pat says, "NO, illegal evolution chains are now prohibited by the Neo rules. Plus, you just evolved Eevee and it's power _counts_ as evolving. Do you see a problem with this?"

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #52 from trovtwo:
Whats the word of the week/
master_trainer_mike says, "the word of the day is SPUNK : mettle, pluck"
master_trainer_mike says, "also means any of various fungi used to make tinder"
master_trainer_mike says, "Pat had a good phrase for the day though......"
master_trainer_pat says, "It stays crunchy, even in milk!"
master_trainer_mike says, "CRUNCHY IN MILK!!!!"

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #55 from chaos_planeswalker:
can you play multiple abilities simultainously like many trainers or poke powers?
master_trainer_pat says, "Nope, can you think of a way to make this happen??"

master_trainer_mike says, "MTM ran all akimbo with his arms full of spunk which was CRUNCHY IN MILK!"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #57 from daghettochild:
does everybody who sends in a create a card thing get a happy birthday pikachu?
master_trainer_mike says, "Yup."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #58 from pikapichu:
whats your guy's phrase of the week, like MUNTY FRESH, and AKIMBO, etc
master_trainer_pat says, "Stays crunchy, even in Milk!"
master_trainer_mike says, "most forms of spunk would be CRUNCHY IN MILK!"

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #59 from profpoke:
So if Lt Surges Electrodes power would deal enough damage to knock himself out, would he keep fliping until he got tails (sincie it says Even if hes knocked out ), or would you stop once he has received lethal damage?
master_trainer_pat says, "as you apply the damage to KO Lt SE, it's power would trigger one last time. You don't move up the replacement Pokemon until everything is finished."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #60 from trovtwo:
How many real pokemon cards (what percentage)did people actually put on the create a card forms?
master_trainer_mike says, "dunno"

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #64 from kirbycopies:
Is it true that Metal Energy blocks damage from trainers (Digger), Energy (Rainbow) , attacks, and self damage?
master_trainer_pat says, "Yes it is"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #65 from cyborg_raptor:
If I attached 2 Metal energies to Mr. Mime, would he be invincible with his Pokemon Power? I'm quite sure there's some way that it doesn't work, but could you tell me specifically so I can tell my friend, who would like to do that combo
master_trainer_mike says, "No that would not work as you apply the effects of the metal energy BEFORE you apply the Pokemon power."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #66 from trovtwo:
Mike,you said last week all the artwork was done in Japan yet I remember ethier pat or steve said Christopher Rush(who made the nintendo power Mewtwo promo)made the artwork for the card.Dose he live in Japan or something?

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #70 from profpoke:
Will Darkness Energy trigger Lt Suges Electrodes Pokemon Power? Same for Poison or Char counters...
master_trainer_pat says, "No, none of those will trigger Lt SE because they 'place damage counters' on the Pokemon.( the rulebook is also incorrect about Char, the Quilava card is correct)"

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #71 from trovtwo:

master_trainer_pat says, "How about and this is original...eek."
master_trainer_pat says, "Yes, I'm serious."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #73 from chrisbo:
So would it be safe to generalize that if a non-metal pokemon has a Metal Energy attached to it, any self-inflicted attack damage is reduced by 20 (-10 for each sentence on the card)? Can you guys think of any examples where this wouldnt be the case?
master_trainer_mike says, "Correct."
master_trainer_mike says, "Though it might not work in the evil star trek universe , as they don;t play by the rules there."
master_trainer_pat says, "and they all have goatees"
master_trainer_mike says, "which has nothing to do with pokemon."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #75 from trovtwo:

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #77 from aaron_the_great:
If Rainbow Energy provides all types of energy, could you use just one on Psyduck or Lugia and use all their attacks?
master_trainer_mike says, "No as each Rainbow energy only provides 1 energy, you need 3 for Lugia."
master_trainer_pat says, "It would work for Psyduck...if you use them on different turns."

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #78 from trovtwo:
Will there be a promo for the upcoming Poke trading card game two for game boy when it reaches the us?

master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #91 from soslowpoke:
what do you mean by illegal evo chains are prohibited by neo rules?
master_trainer_mike says, "look on poage 22 of the neo rule book for the rulesa on illegal evolution chains"
master_trainer_pat says, "This basically stops the whole "Dark Gyarados" problem with Magikarp's Rapid Evolution to get two or three Gyarados' on it."

master_trainer_mike says, "I'm gonna let Dark Apprentice Steve on for a bit, let me know if he misbehaves :)"
master_trainer_mike says, "be right back"

Will there ever be a MTMike,Pat or Dt Steve trainer card?It could even have your phraes like akimbo and stuff.
master_trainer_pat says, "We doubt it, but we're always trying"

darkmaster_steve presents the speaker with question #97 from hyperflame:
Can Rainbow Energy be used to provide Dark Energy? To power Sneasel? Please notice that I didn't say Darkness
darkmaster_steve says, "No, if you are going to term it like that. There is no "dark" energy in the game, there is Darkness, and that CAN be used with rainbow."
master_trainer_pat says, "It just won't provide the extra effects of Darkness energy."

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #103 from kirbycopies:
For the Metal energy question I asked earlier does that include Pokemon Power damage? If so that does that mean that the only way to get damage without lowering the amount is with either poison or Char?
master_trainer_pat says, "Yes, though Darkness energy gets around it too"

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #105 from soslowpoke:
When will the b-day pikas from the create-a-card contest be shipped?
master_trainer_pat says, "Still a ways off."

darkmaster_steve presents the speaker with question #106 from aaron_the_great:
Have you ever heard the original "Pok»mon March" from the TV show in Japan? I am listening to it right now!

master_trainer_pat presents the speaker with question #107 from profpoke:
