    Neither is necessary to mention. Trainers, attacks, abilities, etc. that evolve Pokemon bypass the normal evolution rules. Mentioning it is completely redundant, and can make people assume cards like Ultra Prism Gible that DON'T say that don't work that way.

    At the very, VERY least, redundant reminder text like this should be parenthesized to indicate it doesn't change how the card functions, but most card games wouldn't include such information. (Or would include it in every single instance, which Pokemon also doesn't do.)

    Aside from Pokemon BREAK and Pokemon LV.X, there is no way a Pokemon can "have" an attack that isn't directly printed on the card.

    Umm evosoda evolves the pokemon but adheres to normal evolution rules, Wally does not the distinction is necessary otherwise dusk stone would just look like a very specific evosoda. And an attack that evolves a pokemon is done in between turns so really it does follow the rules and if it didnt it would say so

    Evosoda and Rare Candy are worded that way specifically because they would otherwise be able to evolve a Pokemon the turn it came into play. (Heck, Rare Candy used to be able to do just that, and was errata'd.) I didn't even realize Wally shared Dusk Stone's wording, but that also doesn't actually affect how IT works, either. It's pretty common knowledge that effects like Eevee's Energy Evolution ability bypass the normal rules, and there are many, many rulings to that effect. Most of these effects do not mention the fact they can be used the turn the Pokemon came into play, even though they can be, because that's a basic gameplay rule.

    Attacks are done during a turn. (Which is pretty obvious, since that would otherwise make cards like Diantha near-unusable.)

    I feel like elite 4 members are undervalued in the tcg.

    I seriously hope Surge gets banned at some point - Especially in expanded. Its effect is just too broken for a supporter to have. v_v

    I wonder why they choose not to market Blue/ Lorelei. I think they are popular.

    I am happy to see the game representing the Gym Leaders having connections with Pokemon cards again. My favorite sets are the Gym Heroes and Gym Challenge sets and would like to see more connections in this way in the game as there is a lot of design space there.
