To all my Professor Friends, I found another problem to deal with. This one is much easier, I think. Thanks for any response in the matter and in the last post as well, your answers will be put to use in an upcoming tournament. We seem to be in a transition period where the Professors will have to debate the rules amoung ourselves and apply what we know. Chansey ex (Ruby and Sapphire card # 96) Healing Egg Remove 2 damage counters (1 if there is only 1) from each of your Pokemon. Remove no damage counters from Chansey ex. Double-edge 80 Chansey ex does 60 damage to itself. Things are fine if we only have one Chansey ex on the table. Healing Egg heals everyone but the active Chansey ex. But where there is one Chansey ex, there is bound to be another in the deck somewhere. And sooner or later somebody will put the hurt Chansey ex on the bench, and move a new one out front and use Healing Egg. Then the opponent will raise their hand, call Doug over and say "Chansey ex can't heal Chansey ex." (At that point Doug will roll his eyes and ask for a Lava Cookie) Anyway, there are at least two ways to look at this: First, that the words Chansey ex is the self referencing rule, and it would have been better written as: Healing Egg Remove 2 damage counters (1 if there is only 1) from each of your Pokemon. Remove no damage counters from THIS Chansey ex. ......................................... Second, that Chansey ex simply is unsocial and cannot heal ANY Chansey ex on the table. Thanks, Doug PS I like to use this Chansey with Gardevoir's Poke-Power "Psy Shadow"
