I like Pokemon more than you! :p
Starting on January 20th in Japan, all new and existing Pokemon Tool cards will no longer be considered Item cards. They will now simply be their own “Tool” subcategory. This means a Trainer card now has four subcategories: Items (blue), Supporters (orange), Stadiums (green), and Tools (purple).
This means if you use Mew‘s Mysterious Tail Ability, you can’t retrieve a Tool like Rocky Helmet because it’s no longer considered an Item card. If you use Vikavolt V‘s Paralyzing Bolt (or any form of Item lock), Tool cards won’t be affected. If a card can find a Trainer card, you’d still be able to retrieve a Tool.
It’s likely the same ruling...
