WOTC CHAT REPORT
February 21, 2003 - by CHRISBO

Master Trainer Mike & Master Trainer Pat were not at the Chat today, so that left the ever-unpredictable Dark Master Trainer Mike behind the wheel.  Not much new news from DMTM's ramblings, but Gengar's Shadow Ball revealed a cloudy something that may or may not be looming on the horizon.  Only time will tell (because DMTM sure won't tell!).

Enjoy,
 - CHRISBO

BATTLEZONE / SUPER BATTLE ZONE:

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #157 from jackiej:
will there be anymore events like SBZ?
darkmt_mike says, "We hope so. No info yet!"

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #248 from professorcfk:
got any confirmed numbers for super battlezone attendances?
darkmt_mike says, "Nope. Mike is working on that. They look good."

AQUAPOLIS / SKYRIDGE:

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #185 from gym_leader_blaine:
what is the reason why some of the AQ set cards have a moon crest printed on them and some don't?
darkmt_mike says, "Body or Power PokÚs do. Part of the art thingy!"

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #161 from tehairyclefairy:
Mike, any idea when Aquapolis is due out in the States? Is April a good guess, we need to know in preparation for judging at GenCon Europe (Apr 18th-21st)

darkmt_mike says, "It is out in the states."

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #171 from tehairyclefairy:
*blush* sorry, I meant Skyridge Re#161
darkmt_mike says, "April is a pretty good "guess"."

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #167 from marril2000:
I have always wondered, what is the process the team goes into when designing set names and descriptions? also, what are some of the past code names/rejected titles that have used for sets?

darkmt_mike says, "Hmm. We have to get a large number of ideas and the whittle them down to the ones we like! Then we check them against copyright to see if we can use them! I can't remember any of the rejected ones...too tooo many!"

PROMO CARDS:

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #206 from marril2000:
how many black star promos are there left? someone on wizpog mentioned the suicune as a best and not black star
darkmt_mike says, "One."

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #225 from chrisbo:
Re Q206 : FYI - the advertisement for the Pokemon DVD has a small picture of the Suicune promo, but it looks like it's a "Best" symbol rather than a "Black Star". Have you seen any of them printed yet?

darkmt_mike says, "It is Black star. I have one at my desk."

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #184 from lepi1962:
Will there be a winner and jumbo versions of DVD/VHS Suicune and delegate Professor Elm?
darkmt_mike says, "Dunno."

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #174 from ukpokemonpro:
Is there any plans to reward the European and UK professors for their work with Promo #3's or will they remain exclusively a US promo?

darkmt_mike says, "Dunno. MTM question. Like how I sidestepped that?"
darkmt_mike grins evilly.

WOTC-SET?  OR NOT???

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #183 from lepi1962:
How many new sets after Skyridge do you forsee in 2003?
darkmt_mike says, "Future is unclear it is...."
darkmt_mike says, "...I see more. I see WotC made set."

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #209 from gym_leader_blaine:
will the WOTC set have all new pokemon card in it, or will some of the cards come from other sets including ones from overseas?

darkmt_mike says, "It will have... I can't tell you.. sorry."

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #210 from pokesensei:
RE:183...Did you just say what I think you just said? :)
darkmt_mike says, "The future is unclear? Yeah I said that."
darkmt_mike nods solemnly.

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #212 from lepi1962:
Ladies and Gents, this is the first time - officially WOTC made set! How many cards?
darkmt_mike says, "It is? When?"

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #221 from marril2000:
mike, just out of question, will the 'wizards set' be templated on card-e or neo style 'blanks'?
darkmt_mike says, "What Wizards set?"

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #224 from trekiev:
So , there really is a WOTC set coming out?
darkmt_mike says, "There is? Yeah! Who told you that?"

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #227 from pokesensei:

darkmt_mike says, "You all keep talking about this set! Where are you getting your info?"

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #233 from gym_leader_blaine:

darkmt_mike says, "I think you think we might."

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #238 from trekiev:
RE 227 , the information about the wizards set is just a rumor, can you confirm it?
darkmt_mike says, "Yes. I can confirm there is...."
darkmt_mike says, "...a rumor about the WotC made set."

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #243 from trekiev:
RE 238, is the rumor true or false?
darkmt_mike says, "Which rumor...there are so many."

darkmt_mike presents the speaker with question #253 from neo_fox:
so your just going to deny the existence of the WOTC made set, even though you said it was coming out?
darkmt_mike says, "No. I'm not. But Neither am I going to confirm that it exists. Even though it does."
