Not really, even if you have the older cards they allow them, they just changed the errata to accommodate the ruling system.
The Pokemon tcg info thread//for NEW PLAYER'S!!!
I claimed magnemite.
image was wayyy too big. check the sig rules/signature check thread (in the newbie lounge) if you need help!
So I can use a Gust of Wind (Base set/Base set two) I can use it in a tourney?
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?
I love original Pokemon anime (love EP003) , I miss Misty
Favourite Pokemon Game: Pokemon FireRed
Below is the list of modified-legal sets.2)Are the only Pokemon I'm allowed to add to my deck, have to be from Black & White/Emerging Powers/Noble Victories?
HS - Unleashed
HS - Undaunted
HS - Triumphant
Call of Legends
Black and White
BW Emerging Powers
BW - Noble Victories
And whatever comes out until another rotation.
Go ahead!3)Can I add these Reshiram promo cards I got from tin/box to my deck?
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?
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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
Feraligator. Spinnin' Tail with 60 Power! (if opponent didn't retreat lol).

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?

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?
All right, thanks. I'm actually trying to get a lot of Undaunted and Triumphant packs.
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.
