    Discussion Different Card Legality In Pokemon TCGO?

    Cards like Reset Stamp and Red Card are banned in TCG Expanded, but not in TCGO when playing Versus Mode with an Expanded deck. Does this mean that all cards are legal in TCGO?

    Help Ditto Prism Star + Rare Candy

    You can't use Rare Candy to evolve Ditto Prism Star into a Stage 2 Pokemon (e.g. Charizard), because Ditto Prism Star is not part of Charizard's Evolution Chain, correct?

    Help Number next to energy symbol under prize in Versus mode

    The energy seems related to beating opponents. Each time you win, your accumulated energy goes up is that it? And when you have enough energy for the prize, you get it?

    Help "Choose 2 of your opponent's Pokemon" -- Can you choose the same target twice?

    If an attack, for example, Shadow Rider Calyrex V's Astral Barrage says "Choose 2 of your opponent's Pokemon and put 5 damage counters on each of them", can you choose the same Pokemon twice and put 10 damage counters on it?

    Help TCG Online Question

    I created a deck in TCG Online from my online collection of cards. The deck I created can only really be played against a "live" opponent in Versus Mode is that correct? That is to say, it can't be played for any kinds of rewards in Trainer Challenge or against any computer AI (aside from the...

    Help Moomoo Cheese

    Moomoo Cheese: "Heal 30 damage from up to two of your Pokemon that have Energy attached." This does NOT allow you to heal 30 damage from the same Pokemon (with energy attached) twice, correct?

    Help Paralysis Condition (Rulebook Wording Clarification)

    The rulebook says: "Remove the Special Condition Paralyzed during the between-turns step if your Pokémon was Paralyzed since the beginning of your last turn." As written, it would seem they are referring to the beginning of your previous turn and not the beginning of your current turn...

    Help Clefairy's Mini-Metronome Copying Aero Ball With Counter Energy

    Thank you. Yeah, just picked up the game (with my son) a few months ago and I'm absorbing 12 years of rules (and rule changes) so several questions have popped up. I usually find my questions already posted with answers or in the Rules Compendium, but not always. My experience with TCG Online is...

    Help Clefairy's Mini-Metronome Copying Aero Ball With Counter Energy

    Yep, was playing with my son and it just came up. I had Clefairy and he had Victini V (with a Counter Energy) so the copied attack was actually Victini V's Energy Burst, but I cited the ball attacks as I thought people may be familiar with those. In this case, what I was wondering was whether...

    Help Clefairy's Mini-Metronome Copying Aero Ball With Counter Energy

    If Clefairy (VIV #063) uses it's Mini-Metronome attack to copy an attack such as Aero Ball, X Ball, etc. and the opponent has a Counter Energy attached to their active Pokemon, the energy value of Counter Energy is still based off whether the owner of the Pokemon with the Counter Energy has more...

    Help Greedent V - Crunch Attack

    OK, I found a ruling on a similar ability (Pidgeotto's Twister attack) which says that yes, you can discard a DCE from your opponent's Pokemon.

    Help Greedent V - Crunch Attack

    When a Pokemon attack says to "Discard an energy from your opponent's active Pokemon" such as Greedent V's Crunch Attack, can you discard an energy card on the Pokemon that provides TWO energy such as DCE (Double Colorless Energy)?

    Help Trainers that burn Pokemon?

    Are there any Trainers that cause your opponent's Pokemon to be Burned the same way, for example, that Hypnotoxic Laser causes an opponent's Pokemon to be Poisoned? EDIT: Was able to answer my own question on a site that lets you search for keywords on Pokemon cards. Burning Scarf sort of fits...

    Help Are all older Trainer cards with no subtype Items?

    Thanks. Good thing I found someone old enough to remember all this. :-) I had read elsewhere that "Trainer cards that are not Supporters or Stadiums released before Black & White have been redefined as Item cards", but whether these cards are "Trainer Cards" or "Item Cards" the main takeaway...

    Help Are all older Trainer cards with no subtype Items?

    Thank you. If there is no listed subtype on the Trainer card, can I assume that the expansion is before the Gen 1 Gym Heroes and therefore an Item? EDIT: I looked at some cards in Gym Heroes and the Stadiums are marked as such, but Supporters are not (I'm assuming Trainers such as Brock and...

    Help Are all older Trainer cards with no subtype Items?

    Are all Trainer cards with no subtype on them (e.g. Item/Supporter/Stadium) considered Item cards? I believe all Trainer cards from Gen I through Gen III were qualified as Items when Gen IV came out and if there's no Trainer subtype on the card, the card is from Gen I through Gen III, so I guess...

    Help Full Art Cards

    Rainbow Rare and Secret Gold cards are referred to as "Secret" or "Secret Rare" and not Full Art (even though they have a texture and by that definition are Full Art). Would it be correct to say that "Secret" cards are a "subtype" of Full Art?

    Help Full Art Cards

    Very helpful, thank you. Not sure if you're familiar with TCGPlayer, but would that be another good indicator (i.e. if the word Full Art is written in the card title)?
