I would like to thank all those that suggested that I take a closer look at Xlibris before trying to publish with them; I had not imagined that the lies would go as deep as they did, and I can't believe how much of a scam artist the company is. Hell, they even told me they had a AAA rating on the Better Business Bureau...but when I went to look it up, the BBB has NO record of the business as being legitimate in their files. Never trust someone that can pleasantly lie to your face. If you hate scam artists and want to have a good laugh, I encourage you to visit this link:

And I'm sure there are more complaints where that came from...

So...yeah. That was a very hectic and unpleasant surge of activity, and I hope I never have to go through something like that ever again. On the plus side, at least I now know how Kickstarter works, so I'll have an easier time making a project there when and if I get the chance to publish my material with a legitimate company.

Alrighty then...

Oddly enough, though, this does present me with the opportunity to talk about a revelation I had a while ago that I haven't told you all about yet.

Now, I am not one to speculate much in my journals, but I have hit upon something that, if it proves to be true, could be HUGE for the next Pokemon game, which I (along with most of the internet) is titling "Pokemon Z". This also involves the Pokemon TCG, so if you are not that familiar with it, I suggest you do a little research on it.

For the first time in my life, I have gone ahead and pre-ordered a Booster Box (which contains a massive total of 36 Booster Packs per box) for the upcoming BREAKthrough TCG set; it will have 164 cards in the set, allowing it to tie with Skyridge for having the most cards in a single set within the TCG. Normally, the trainer cards in a set are designed to reflect the generation of games that are currently out or will be out before the generation is over. As such, it is not uncommon to see criminal organization characters, Gym Leaders and so on in the cards, but the key is that they should correspond in some way to that generation (though admittedly, characters like Professor Oak and other major Pokemon Professors do cross boundaries, but I think that's just reflective of their integral role in the Pokemon world as a whole).

But BREAKthrough has something different. One of the trainer cards, as well as an ultra-rare full art card, has the visage of a character from a much, much older time: Giovanni.

Now, to clear things up, Skyla is also in the set, but the artwork used in that card is pretty much just a repeat of artwork used an earlier card bearing her visage. But the card art for the regular Giovanni card has never been made before, and the full art version depicts a fully-drawn image of him that has NEVER been seen before. What is really striking is that the artwork seems to depict a younger Giovanni, younger than he was even was in the original games.

What does this mean? Well, the easiest explanation is that he is included as a nod to the anime, as it is the first set to focus on the Mega Evolutions of Mewtwo. There's just one problem: Character relationships from the anime only are NEVER used in the TCG. It just doesn't happen. Which could mean something entirely more radical, something even I didn't think was ever going to happen:

Giovanni might be coming back. Or at the very least, a strong reference of some sort towards him may be featured in the next main-series Pokemon game(s).

Again, I normally am not one to speculate, but this could be huge if it pans out. It just feels weird for him, of all people, to be in this TCG set otherwise...

I would love to hear your opinions on the subject, and I will continue to investigate this further. Until we meet again, have a pleasant day everyone.

Hello; my name is Professor Wormwood, otherwise known as Mutitus.

My tale is both short and long, but I won't bore you with all the details. I originally became interested in deviantART through a chance encounter with some art that I found quite pleasing. From there, I began my journey through this marvelous place, taking on various guises and images until I finally came upon my current position, the Official Professor of Pokemon for the U.S. State of Pennsylvania.

Here, I dedicate my life to showing the world just how real Pokemon are and how fundamental they are to understanding both how the real world works and how thin the boundary between fantasy and reality truly is. I have been an active part of the Pokémon universe ever since I was a child, and it has opened my eyes to the greater laws that govern the universe and in turn where I stand as an individual in the sea of life that exists on this tiny little planet in an otherwise unexciting corner of space. I owe my incredible writing abilities and imagination to this world, and the best way I can repay my debt, as far as I figure, is to bring reality to a world where it is commonly rejected and in turn help even casual players of the series interact with their games in a way that is otherwise beyond what the creators of the series are willing to go.

Outside of here, I am attending Graduate School at SUNY UB; my specialty training is in geology and invertebrate paleontology, particularly in regards to Late Silurian plants, algae and fungi, and right now I am working to further specialize in Mid Ordovician graptolites. I am exceptionally skilled at mathematics and all sciences in general, though I am particularly knowledgeable in the fields of geology, paleontology, astronomy and theoretical physics. I do not know if there is more to life than what we live through on the Earth we know and love, but knowing that ghosts are real, I can only hope that there is at least some sort of existence beyond life.

For now, this is all that needs to be said; if I feel like opening up, though, perhaps I will reveal more of my secrets to the world. Regardless, I will continue to serve my friends and colleagues as a vigilant nobleman and protector of the, and for all eternity.

I want to ask you a couple questions you may know about Magician. Do you think you could answer a couple?

Do you think the Magician could have had a personality? Sense of humor, maybe? Why do you think he agreed to work with Goldman? These questions has been in my mind for some time now.
Mutitus Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2015  Professional Writer
Absolutely. However, I will say that t's personality would likely been created as a result of its own direct interactions with humans and its capacity for free will. It wished to become the most powerful creature in the world and dominate it, taking orders from no one, and it would do anything and everything to ensure that the agents of AMS and all other humans fell under its control. I can't say if something like a sense of humor could have really developed from something like this, but I suppose anything is possible, seeing as we get to see little of the Magician compared to the length of time it has actually existed.

As for Goldman, I would say that working with him was just the method used by the Magician to achieve its ambitions in any way possible. After being defeated the first time, the Magician was practically dead, but Goldman was able to retrieve enough of it to rebuild and revitalize it. Goldman and the Magician shared a common interest in not only destroying AMS but resetting humanity as a whole, eliminating its corruptive influence in the world and replacing it with a less destructive, more 'controllable' population of mutants. Goldman's plan was to create a new entity that could accomplish this beyond what the Magician was even capable of, but he needed Curien's private research in order to breed this superior mutant. With the destruction of the lab, the was only one possible way to get that information: Extract it from one of his experiments. And what better option was there to examine as the pinnacle of Curien's work other than the Magician? The Magician knew that Goldman had the resources to make this happen, and so begrudgingly, it acted in the interest of its own personal goals in assisting Goldman in creating the Emperor. Sadly, the experiment did turn out to be a failure as the Emperor was not finished when it was released, leading to its termination. However, both the efforts of Goldman and the Magician paid off a few years later, as there had been a second Emperor developed and placed in cryogenic suspension to allow its body to mutate at a stable pace; as we both know, this resulted in the creation of The World, one of if not the most powerful mutant ever featured in the House of The Dead series.

Hey man, what's up? Haven't talked to you in a while. Just wondering how you're doing.
Mutitus Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2015  Professional Writer
Things have been pretty busy around here, but I suppose that I can't complain too much. How are things on your end?

Awesome, actually. Have some good news. Sorry this is kind of late...but I think I found a japanese interpreter to translate the picture.

Hey, I have a Pkmn question for ya:
I know that you get Phione when breeding Manaphy w/ Ditto, but can you do it again and again to get many Phiones?
Thanks on advice! :)
Mutitus Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2015  Professional Writer
As long as you mean continuing to breed with the same Manaphy and Ditto, yes; the breeding relationship is the same as what you would expect from any other compatible couple.
