Ruling M Beedrill-EX & Pokemon Ranger

  1. Hello!

    I have a question about M Beedrill-EX and Pokemon Ranger.

    • Player A has an active M Beedrill-EX and attacks with Hazard Stinger.
    • 4 damage counters are placed on Player B's active Pokemon at the end of Player A's turn.
    • It is now Player B's turn. Player B plays Pokemon Ranger and ends his/her turn.

    Question: When Player B ends his/her turn, how many damage counters are placed on his/her active Pokemon - 1 or 4?

    I am fairly confident that the correct answer is '4'. This is because M Beedrill-EX's attack inflicts a 'super status condition' not an effect that can be removed by Pokemon Ranger. This ruling would fall in line with that which I have found for Dragalge's 'Severe Poison' attack and how it is (not) affected by Pokemon Ranger. However, I would like to be 100% sure when I go into the next few tournaments and expect to see a swarm of Beedrill!

    You are correct. The "buffed" Poison isn't removed by Ranger.
