    And every year they rotate out some of the older sets.

    As for Bill, that card has been errata'd to be a Supporter; there isn't a trailer version of it any more. So it won't matter if you play the old one or the new one, if you play it in an official game then it will be a Supporter and not a trainer. They did the same with Great Ball too. So even if you use an old Great Ball then it'll have the effect of the new Great Ball instead.

    Wow! That is a Major Text change! It seems that there doing this so that you have to buy the new cards to compete in the tournies.

    Not really, even if you have the older cards they allow them, they just changed the errata to accommodate the ruling system.

    Unless the tournament you're in is Unlimited, then no, that card is no longer modified-legal. You would have to use the new Pokemon Catcher that came in the Emerging Powers set.

    Hi guys I'm wondering if you can help me with a few questions.
    I'm completely new to Pokemon TCG and just bought the new Noble Victories Fast Daze theme deck because I want to start playing. When I was young I bought a few of the base set theme decks (overgrowth, brushfire) but never really played, and want to start proper now.

    1)As there are only 5 fire energies in new deck I bought can I add some more fire energy from the old base set?

    2)Are the only Pokemon I'm allowed to add to my deck, have to be from Black & White/Emerging Powers/Noble Victories?

    3)Can I add these Reshiram promo cards I got from tin/box to my deck?

    Thanks
    I love original Pokemon anime (love EP003) , I miss Misty

    All Basic Energy from any set are fine to use. Any Special Energy that are reprinted into the latest sets, like Double Colorless, are also legal to use.

    2)Are the only Pokemon I'm allowed to add to my deck, have to be from Black & White/Emerging Powers/Noble Victories?
    Below is the list of modified-legal sets.

    HeartGold SoulSilver
    HS - Unleashed
    HS - Undaunted
    HS - Triumphant
    Call of Legends
    Black and White
    BW Emerging Powers
    BW - Noble Victories
    HS promos

    And whatever comes out until another rotation.

    3)Can I add these Reshiram promo cards I got from tin/box to my deck?
    Go ahead!

    Little question on how a move works. I have the BW Emerging Powers #54 Drilbur with Hone Claws along with the BW Emerging Powers #56 Excadrill. If I had Drilbur use Hone Claws one turn so that the next turn his attack would do 30 more damage, but evolved him into Excadrill the next turn, would he still get the 30 power boost?

    No, sorry. An evolution is more or less considered a "new Pokemon" in play. Unless stated otherwise, any Pokemon-inflicted effects from attacks are cleared when a Pokemon evolves. Plus, by "this Pokemon" the attack is referring to Drilbur.

    Ok, is gust of wind a legal substitute for catcher? I have tons of the former and none of the latter.

    Nope, it has a different name.

    EDIT: You can use it in playtesting/league tho
    When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.

    Sorry for the bump, but I need to ask a question. Can a Pokémon be, at the same time, confused and asleep? I do know that the Poké can be burned, poisoned and asleep at the same time, but, confused and asleep?

    Asleep, Confused, and Paralyzed are conditions in which the card is turned in a certain direction. A card cannot be turned in two directions at the same time. So, those three conditions can only be separate and not stacked. Burned and Poisoned are the only conditions that can be stacked with each other and with any one of the three previously mentioned.

    Ahn, I see. Thankies~

    Here's another one. Take this Sharpedo. Crunch attack says that an attack will cause more damage to someone's Pokémon if some Pokémon does some damage. Can someone defines who's the Defending Pokémon, the someone and the one who can attack with Crunch's boost?

    I think it'll be more easily if you can detail as a Battle situation.

    In the video games, Crunch can reduce the Defense of the opponent's Pokemon. For this Sharpedo, this has been implemented into its Crunch attack.

    The Defending Pokemon in this case is the one who received the Crunch attack. If that Pokemon is still active during your next turn and was never switched out during your opponent's last turn, any attack that does damage to that Defending Pokemon (whether it be from itself or your Pokemon) will do 40 more damage after applying Weakness and Resistance.

    Example 1
    You use Crunch for 20. Your opponent takes their turn without switching or retreating. When you do damage on your next turn, you do 40 more damage.

    Example 2
    You use Crunch against a Pokemon that knows Take Down, which will do 10 damage to the Pokemon that uses it. If your opponent uses Take Down during their turn, that Pokemon will do 50 damage to itself instead of 10. When it's your turn, if you don't use Crunch again, then the effect will end when you finish your turn.

    Get it! Thanks. Interesting uses with Pokés who can damage multiple targets.

    Sorry it's late, but this actually came up at the pre-release I went to. My opponent catcher-ed my Drilbur after I had used hone claws. I retreated the Pokemon he switched for and sent drilbur back out. The judge said that it would still do 30 more damage since it specifically says "This Pokemon." I think that sounds about right. But if I had evolved it into Excadrill, it would not have dealt the extra damage.

    I know the basic rules of the game but I want to learn more about the competitive aspect of the game. Are there any websites that offer articles on how to jump into the metagame?

    The judge made the wrong call. Any Active Pokemon that is switched out also loses any effects on it.

    What's the best way to come upon basic energies (besides buying them online)?
    Are there any booster packs that I can pull good energies from, or do I have to settle on buying decks to acquire them?

    Sets with basic enrgies that are in stores:

    HGSS
    BW

    Also buy some Theme Decks that have the Energy(s) you want.

    - The biggest draw to RNGed pokemon is for flawless IVs, which are way more useful than a color swap.
    - It's an exploitable in-game feature, just like EVs and IV breeding.
    - Nintendo notes that it is legal; it's not cheating by their own definitions.

    Theme decks are the way to go, even if they often provide only two types of Energy and in limited numbers. Or if you know people who currently play or may still have old Base Set Energy in good condition, then try to get some from them. And if those with old cards have the old Double Colorless Energy, try to grab those too

    In casual gameplay, can I use a Pokémon that don't evolve from the final stage? For example, I have a Whimsicott, but I don't have any Cottonee. Since I don't want to hunt for it, can I use another basic Grass Pokémon with similar attacks, resistances and weakness?

    Remember that my case refer to CASUAL gameplay, not competitive gameplay.
