How did you get into this game?
I played the video game first, which basically lead me
into card games all together.
Ness: What do you like about it?
I like strategy and games that involve intense thinking.
Thats what makes Pokemon my favorite.
Ness: What don't you like about it?
COIN FLIPS. Coin Flips are the downfall of this game.
Ness: What's your favorite deck to play?
Haymaker. The win pretty quick and there hard to beat.
Ness: What do you think is the strongest deck in the
Haymaker no doubt. Slowking is decent, but Haymaker
doesn't have to rely on trainers to win.
Ness: What deck do you hate to play against?
Anything that has 4 Chaos Gyms in it. They are mad
Ness: What would your "Top 10 Best Pokémon"
list look like?
Ness: Top 5 trainers?
#5-Super Energy Removal
Ness: Where do you usually play?
Usually Alternate Realm, but sometimes I go to Neutral
Ground, The Battleground. I also play in my own venue The
Ness: Who is your most difficult competition?
Well, out of every player I've ever played I'd have to say
Jason Imperiale is my toughest. He's exceedingly good.
Ness: What do you win at tournaments?
Usually 5 packs. Nothing special.
Ness: What are some of your most thrilling victories?
I really don't have thrilling victories. Just fast ones.
Ness: And your most devastating losses?
I lost to my friend Steve (Currently 7 Globally) really
bad at the Battleground when he double Trapped me and he
just beat me down with Wigglytuff.
Ness: Did you compete in the TMB, STS, or any other
large-scale tournaments? If you did, how'd ya do?
I competed in the STS, but I didn't do well because my
friend Steve made our team a HORRIBLE deck that day. The
reason I didn't do worse was because I outplayed the
grossness of the deck. Thanx Steve ;-). (62nd Place 11-14
Ness: If you had to ban one card, what would you ban?
Chaos Gym. No questions asked. Its the most broken card in
this kind of environment.
Ness: What deck do you think is the funnest to play?
Miraculous Comeback deck. Its with Meowth ;-)
Ness: What do you think of Wizard's ideas of No 15+
qualifiers, Prop 15, etc.?
I think No 15+ Qualifiers is gross and very mean to the
older Pokemon players, they deserve it just as most as the
younger kids if not more. I also think they should just
leave Pokemon the way it is, and don't make worthless
formats like P-15.
Ness: What does it mean to be ranked as one of the best
Pokémon players in the world?
Its pretty cool. I mostly play DCI Sanctioned for the
Mega Battle. I really want to go. Plus its cool to brag to
Magic Players that I'm #1.
Ness: Do your friends/schoolmates know you play Pokémon?
Does it give ya a good/bad reputation?
I would NEVER tell anyone in my school I played Pokemon. I
mean this is a great game, but I don't think the girls
would go near me if they knew I played this game ;-/
Ness: If you could have 100 Smeargles or 100 Japanese
Woopers, which would you rather have? =/
Phil: I dunno...LOL probably the Woopers.
Ness: Who do you believe is the best Pokémon TCG player
in the world?
Jason Imperiale. He is definitely the most accomplished
Pokemon player in the world. Top 4 at the STS, went to the
Mega Battle, and he was #2 in the world for so long.
Ness: Any non-Poké hobbies?
Magic and (rest was censored by Ness.)
Phil, how the heck could ya put Electabuzz as number one
