    The card says that when attached to a Basic Pokémon, it counts as every type (but only counts as one Energy). This means that you don't have to--in fact, can't--choose to make it a different type.

    Except (assuming this is possible) if you transfer it from a Basic Pokémon to one that is not Basic. Then it becomes Colorless.

    Hope this helps!

    ^If you're playing aromatisse and switch prism to aromatisse it becomes a colorless and can't be switched off of it.

    Hi, I'm new to the world of pokemon... so some basic questions here...

    1)When a trainer card says "pick a pokemon card from your deck" does it mean a basic card only, or can you select a stage1, stage2 card?
    Some cards say specifically "pick a basic card" or "pick a stage 1 or stage 2 card". But some cards simply say "pick a pokemon card"
    Examples:
    Item Card Poke Ball: "... search your deck for a Pokémon, reveal it, put it into your hand..."
    Item Card Max Revive: "Put a Pokémon from your discard pile on top of your deck."


    2) Is the text written below a pokemon's attack considered part of its "attack"? Even if its non-offensive? If a pokemon's attack is blocked is the stuff described in the text also blocked? Or only the offensive stuff?

    Example:
    Ponyta Pokemon has an attack called Agility. It does 10 dmg and flip a coin to prevent all effects of attacks during opponents next round. If on the Opponents PREVIOUS round (before you played Ponyta) your opponent played a card that blocks Ponyta's attack... is Ponyta's defensive portion of the attack canceled too? In other words, are all of Ponyta's potential actions canceled?


    3) Pidgeot - Strong Gust. "During your next turn this pokemon's Strong Gust attack does 60 more damage".

    Must the Strong Gust be played a 2nd time for the extra damage to occur? Or does the extra 60 damage occur regardless of whatever else is happening in the game. (is Strong Gust like launching a missile ... first it gets launched and it takes a round for it to strike regardless of whatever else happens.)


    Clarification:
    a) Is this 60 more dmg from the first attack being applied on the next round, or 60 more damage if Strong Gust is performed again on the next attack?

    b) Does the extra 60dmg still happen if Pidgeot was defeated or paraliyzed?.

    c) Does the extra 60dmg still occour if the defending player casts Pidgeotto sand attack (flip a coin, if tails next attack does nothing).

    1. If it says a Pokemon card it refers to a Pokemon card, if it excludes or asks for specifics those are your guide lines.

    2. If the attack of the card says you have to discard energy to attack or it does no dmg then you have to, if it generally asks you to discard energy, flip, etc do it anyways.

    3. 60+ and it says during your next turn you can do 60 more dmg, then the next turn you deal 120 dmg, an the turn after that 120 dmg, it also refers to the attack specifically, not another attack of the same name or another pokemons attack.

    I would have asked on the official TCGO forums, but since it's not allowed to post or link to pictures I'll put this here. This is a situation that I sometimes face, and I'm really not sure what's the best way to approach it. I want to use my Evosoda on Roselia next turn, but that leaves me Snivy on the bench and Serperior in my hand. Do I use Skyla to get a Rare Candy, or am I better off using her to get an N or Juniper to redraw my hand next turn and hope I get something more useful? What would an experienced player do in a situation like this?

    ^that is just a bad hand turn 2 hand, skyla for an N, don't drop cards in the first part of the game if you can help it, but you generally have an idea of what your supposed to do, just hope you draw a supporter. If you find this to be a consistent problem add more draw supporters like N, juniper, colress, shauna, etc less energy 14 draw supporters to 14 energy is best, play 2 super rod, they are worth 3 energy per card in theory if you need more energy, profs letter adds circulation for energy to hand, especially if you like to play skyla.

    Is there any purpose for the oversized cards (like the giant Krookodile EX card from the Krookodile Box)? Can they be used in game?

    They can't be used in the game, no. From what I know, they're purely for collection/promotional purposes.

    Though for most of them, like the Jumbo Krookodile EX you mentioned, they're proper-size counterparts are perfectly playable.
