    I do want to know, it's probably the same issue, regarding LA Metagross (Extra Comet Punch) the first attack does 50, the 2nd 100. If I have another identical one on the bench and the 1st one faints, and it states "During your next turn, Metagross's Extra Comet Punch attack's base damage is 100."

    If one faints, does the other continue "Metagross's Extra Comet Punch" at 100?

    Again, this is a different card, but the name and attack are identical, so I'd say it works again, nothing has really changed except which one...?
    As I said, pretend the card is saying "this pokemon" instead of it's name. That's the easiest way of explaining it. So if you attack with a Metagross and then retreat for a differant Metagross then it isn't the same card anymore. So no, if you retread for a differant Metagross then Extra Comet Punch would only do 50 again.
    I'll also point out that effects on either active Pokemon go away when the Pokemon goes to the bench. So if you retreat your Metagross and then use something like Warp Point to get it active again then it still would only do 50.

    Comments in bold. Everything that says great you should for sure put in your deck. Anything that says pretty good you should consider putting it into your deck. Anything that's so-so you shouldn't consider putting in your deck unless you have a lot of space.

    Default Question about Energy cards

    On a whim, me and a couple friends picked up a start deck and three boosters of the newer Pokemon cards last night for shits and giggles.

    I was reading about official rules and such, and most tournaments and what not only allow cards from the most recent generations of cars. I was wondering if this includes energies or not? We were all going to try and dig up our old cards so we'd have extra energies laying around, and were just wondering if they're still considered "legal" cards.

    Wrong section, but I use energies from expedition and they count. It's a reprinted card, so you can use a Potion from the Base Set for instance, and since it's reprinted you can still use it. Same with some of the secret rares in some sets, you can still use Base set Charizard I think.

    How is Super Scoop Up "not worth it"? Even if you have to flip, it's a very useful card, especially if you need to save a Pokemon, or Energy, from getting sent to the discard pile or just to pick up Uxie for re-use. There may be cards to retrieve Pokemon and Energy from the Discard Pile, but why wait for them to end up there, with your opponent one prize less away from winning?

    Especially works well when a Broken Time-Space is in play or you have a Rare Candy on hand if you're trying to use Super Scoop Up on an evolved Pokemon.

    Because I hate coin flips :/ Besides, I'd rather get a free retreat cost from a Stadium or a Pokemon move/Pokepower/Pokebody or something.

    Yes you can as long as the name is the same. And "Delta Species" is not part of any Pokemon's name.

    Hi!
    The pokemon I want to ask about is Dark Charmeleon. Can he evolve into Charizard or is Dark Charizard the only way? (I think it is)
    Also I wanted to ask about Regigigas Lv. X - if you use his pokepower does your opponent take prize card because one of your pokemons is knocked out or not? (I suppose he should take one)

    Thanks for your reply!
    Btw, Nidoprince - "Raging Sea" is awesome, thanks again ^.^

    Dark Charmeleon is Dark charmeleon(Dark is part of his name) as it's shown on dark charizard card - evolves from DARK charmeleon.
    About regigigas - when player's pokemon is knocked out, second player takes prize card.No matter why pokemon was knocked out.

    Dark Charizard evolves only from Dark Charmeleon, the normal Charizard evolves only from the normal Charmeleon.
    What you have is a Dark Charmeleon, so Dark Charizard is the only way, as Dark Charizard is the only card that says "Evolves from Dark Charmeleon".

    Regigigas doesn't says that the opponent doesn't get a prize for that, so the opponent does get a prize for it.

    So it's against the rules because I have the rulebook from Stormfront (Regigigas is also from this expasion) and it says:
    Thenever you Knock Out your opponent's Pokemon, your opponent puts his or her Basic okemon card and all cards attached to it (Evolution cards, Energy cards, and so on) in the discard pile. Then you chose one of your Prizes (you do this even if your opponent Knocks Out his or her own Pokemon, or if it is Knocked Out between turns!) and put it into your hand.
    So I think it's me who's right?

    You're wrong, and this question was answered a few pages back (I asked it for confirmation, actually).

    If a Pokemon is knocked out, the person who is playing opposite of the Pokemon that was knocked out takes a prize, UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED ON THE CARD (all caps and bold for emphasis, not trying to seem mean). There's one Unown that has (I think) the Refresh Poke-Power, which allows you to knock it out (without your opponent taking a prize card) to draw one card.

    Tl;dr

    If you use Sacrifice, your opponent takes a prize.
    I'm done, no more trades. Don't PM me, don't send me an email. I won't respond because I almost never come here anymore.

    Can someone explain to me the differences of playing with 2 players than playing with 7 in the Rumble TCG? I couldn't make the jump in the rulebook seeing they explained how to play with 7 but not 2, mostly anyway. Thanks.

    Hi again!
    Next question I wanted to ask about is:
    Double Rainbow Energy says that it must be attached to evolved pokemon (excluding ex). Does that mean that it can't be attached to ex pokemon or that it can be attached to any ex pokemon (including basic ex)?
    Thanks for answer!

    I'd say that it overrides Broken Time Space, because it's effect is like... global but it doesn't override Rare Candy (attack says that opponent can't play evolution or levelup cards but when he plays Rare Candy he plays a Trainer and using other card is only a side-effect), but it's only my opinion.
    Also my question is still open!

    IMO yes - it's even written in the rulebook (in "Pokemon that Refer to Themselves" part) that you should read it as "this pokemon" so I think you can transfer energy to your Lv. X

    PS. If you aren't sure read the end of description aswell
    This power can't be used if Charizard G is affected by a Special Condition.
    There's no Lv.X too but it doesn't mean that you can't use pokepower if other Charizard G is affected by a Special Condition, right?
