Yeah, according to their video, TPCi's core values for Pokémon are:
Passion? Eh, only when they feel like it
Dedicated to quality? The dub would like have a world with you. xD
Integrity and respect? Debatable.
Delighting Customers? A lie on the dub side of things and TCG players
still say that TPCi's handling of the TCG tournaments is still a mess. xD
Yeah, as far as the reserves go, it wouldn't be a dealbreaker if they don't show up, but it's been ages since we've seen them
aside from Tauros, Bulbasaur and Corphish and Totodile's cameo of course. xD
