    Team Compendium is pleased to announce the latest editions of The Pokemon Trading Card Game Rulings Compendium, The Compendium BW. The features of the Compendium BW include:

    • Streamlined rulings, pre-HGSS rulings removed, except those that are still relevant
    • Updated existing rulings, applied to Abilities & Trainers as appropriate [with edited text in brackets]
    • Updated links, to card scans from the PokeGym Researching Tower
    • Comprehensive index, so you can jump right to or bookmark a specific ruling
    Check it all out at
    Did I say, editions, plural? Yes! There is now a mobile edition of the Compendium BW at
    This mobile edition is designed to work with your iOS & Android mobile phones (and maybe some others!). Right now, it requires an Internet connection to use on your mobile device.

    And if you read between the lines here or read the introduction carefully, you’ll know there are a couple more editions in the works.

    Please give us your feedback, corrections and considered suggestions in this article’s thread on the PokeGym. If the mobile edition works (or doesn’t work) on your phone, we’d like to know the model of phone and version of its operating system.

    Thank you, loyal Compendium readers, for how much you care about good rulings! These editions are for you.

    Q. Can I use Rotom's "Mischievous Trick" Poke-POWER when I have no cards in my deck, to put a Prize card into my deck?
    A. No, you can't. That would be far too mischievous. (HS:Undaunted FAQ; Sep 9, 2010 PUI Rules Team)

    downloadable (pdf?) edition please, for events where there is no 'net connection?

    I hear you.

    It's hard to automate because most automated pdf creators choke on the css... and most operating systems have built in or free pdf creators. I'd like to make changes needed to bring it back, but there are at least 3 things ahead of it for the BW edition alone...

    You can download the Compendium as an HTML version that your browser can open even when your not connected to the internet. Even the Index links at the bottom will work!
    That's how I keep a reference copy handy when not online.

    Just do "File", "Save Page As..." and choose "Web page, HTML only" as the file type.

    will that work on an android tablet?

    That should work on everything with an internet browser. You're saving the same data that the internet would be sending to you if you were connected.

    There's a slight error that I noticed for the attack Grind

    The Pokemon that are linked use the attack "Gear Grind" and not "Grind"

    Thanks. That's a limitation of the search that pulls the data used for the links. We don't currently have the metadata in the compendium needed to exclude the extraneous matches. there have been a few other instances of this anomaly in the past. It's something we'd like to fix but there are other priorities at present.

    there are applications that will do just that, if you're using firefox I know there are a good 10 different add ons that can do just that.

    Hi all,

    I was studying for my yearly Exam and I stumbled upon a small issue.
    Under meta-rulings :

    ^The new Ditto seems to be an exception to this rule.
  18. PokePop

    Yes. Yes, it is.

    However, there can be no exceptions. At least according to the Meta-rulings header:

    The nature of the other meta-rulings seems to be consistent with this.

    Meta Rule?
    What meta rule?
