[POJO] What do you like best about the PokeMon TCG?
[MR] I like the fact that it is very easy and fun to learn and play.

[POJO] What do you dislike about the PokeMon TCG? 
MR] I don’t like the prices of boosters or all the coin flipping. I also hate how they’re bringing out Base Set 2 which has started rumors that they may ban Prof. Oak and all the others.

[POJO] Do you find casual play or organized competition to be more fun? Why? 
[MR] I prefer organized competition because when your competing, you try your hardest and try to show your skill.

[POJO] Where do you usually play?
[MR] I usually play at MILLENIUM GAMES AND HOBBIES every Sunday (that I’m not punished).

[POJO] How often do you participate in organized tournaments?
[MR] Usually once a week.

[POJO] What was you most thrilling victory?
[MR] My most thrilling victory would have to be when I was playing Jesus Perez in the finals with two cards left in my deck. He put my Drowzee to sleep with his Clefairy. At the end of his turn the coin flip was heads and I was awake. I drew a Plus Power, retreated Drowzee, and slashed with Scyther and a Plus Power for the win in front of a crowd of about 20 people. 

[POJO] What was your most crushing defeat?
[MR] My most crushing defeat was against my cousin in the finals when I had one prize left and decked.

[POJO] Who is your toughest competition? Why? [MR] My toughest competition is probably Travis Tabor and Jeff Tabor because they’re both REALLY good and have really nice decks. [POJO] What is your favorite card? Why?
[MR] My favorite card is Lapras because I like confusion.

[POJO] What kind of deck to you dread having to play against? 
[MR] I hate playing against good original decks because you never know what’s coming.

[POJO] What does it mean to you to be ranked as one of the best Pokemon TCG players in the world?
[MR] It’s pretty cool because when I started I sucked and thought I would never be in the top 100.

[POJO] Do you play the Pokemon video game?
[MR] Yes I have blue & yellow.

[POJO] Do you watch the Pokemon Animated Series?
[MR] Occasionally.

[POJO] Do you have a collection of Pokemon toys?
[MR] Me and my brothers have a few.

[POJO] Do you have a favorite card? Favorite video game character?  Favorite animated series character?
[MR] My favorite card is Lapras. My favorite video game and animated character is Magmar.

[POJO] Anything else you would like to add to this interview? 
[MR] Yes. Wizards will ruin Pokemon if they are considering banning Prof. Oak, Super Energy Removal, and Computer Search.
