I have been trying to get info on trainers used in the team format so I don't make many mistakes when I start playing in a tournament format.
I recently found out that Poke breeder was out and you can't share a Bill.
I know its abit vague but what trainers do you use in team play? I'd like to get a list I can mull over and decide which would benefit my partner and I when we build decks to benefit each other

Do or do not. There is no try

Even though the rulings are not 100% logical (which MTM has never denied), it still follows quite an understandable pattern.

- Cards which state "you(r)" are to be read as "you(r)" or "your teammate('s)". Cards which state "your opponent" are to be read as "one of your opponent of your choice".
The choice has to be made as soon as it becomes relevant who the target is. If it's a Trainer or a continuous Pokemon Power, that moment is the moment you play the card. If it's an activated Pokemon Power or an attack, the choice is to be made when you use the Power/Attack.

- You cannot have cards in your personal playing area (Active/Bench/DiscPile/Deck/Hand/Prizes) other than cards which were already part of your deck at the beginning of the game, meaning for example that you can't attach Pokemon Tools to your partner's Pokemon.

Those are the most important 2 general card rulings for Team Play. These 2 rules should answer a lot of questions (like the Bill-problem).

You should not read the next sentence.
Why won't you listen?

Just to clarify---so if you have 3 Slowking on your bench, they do not cover both opponents. You must specify which for which right???

Either, you Pokemon Yes, or you Pokemon no. If you Pokemon Guess So, sooner later, "squish" justa like bug Pokemon!!

Yes-you must declare when Slowking comes into play.

Well, for clarification on TMP rules I think your best bet is to talk to the TO(s) at your league; they will have the most recent TMP rules and many have a lot of TMP experience as well.
Most TOs and MPs are more than willing to listen to your questions and will take the time to help anyone who asks.
I know that there are two MPs in the Dayton area, both with a lot of TMP experience.
One was asked to judge at Worlds and also judged all four days at Origins, so I think they would be a great place to start.

Isn't Slowking banned from this format? [Dubious]

TMP uses the Modified format for constructed tournaments, and we all know the sad story of Slowking in Modified. [Frown]

I suppose you might still see Slowking in Team Limited.
