    I was playing TCGO and noticed that after my opponent used Latios-GX's Clear Vision-GX, I could still use Keldeo's Resolute Blade-GX. Is this a glitch or actually how this interaction works?

    I think it's a glitch because Latios places the effect on the player as opposed to Keldeo-GX itself, but it could be something in the way it's programmed that allows Keldeo's Ability to protect it from something it shouldn't.

    So... Twitter is not the best source, but just ran across this on reddit:

    If the original Japanese translation for Clear Vision is something along the lines of "for the rest of the game, your opponent's Pokemon cannot use GX attacks" (which appears to be the case), then naturally Keldeo would be immune to that

    At this point, only time will tell if Latios gets an errata that makes it more consistent with the Japanese wording/ruling

    I agree it’s not intuitive, but it’s correct.

    It’s in the Compendium now:

    Does that mean marowak doesn't block it?

    Which Marowak?

    The Marowak from Fates Collide, which prevents effects of opponent’s attacks on you and your hand

    To answer the question - no, Marowak would not protect against Clear Vision because, as established, Clear Vision is meant to be an effect applied to your Pokémon and not yourself

    While we are talking about Clear Vision GX, does anyone know if Channeler undoes the attacks effect.
    For those who do not know, Channeler says -
    Remove all effects of attack on you and each of your Pokemon.

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes:
    Though that predates the ruling that it's technically on your Pokémon, I don't think that changes anything.
