    == GOURGANTIC (Gourgeist - XY: Phantom Forces)

    Q. Suppose that I have a Gourgeist with the "Gourgantic" Ability, with a Grass Energy and Heavy Boots attached and a Training Center in play. Would its max HP be 200 or 250?
    A. Gourgantic essentially replaces Gourgeist's printed HP, so reductions and additions to HP work as normal. You can stack the additional HP effects of Heavy Boots and Training Center, so in this case the resulting HP would be 250. (Jun 9, 2016 TPCi Rules Team)


    == REBIRTH (Ho-Oh EX - XY: Dragons Exalted)

    Q. What happens if I try to use Ho-Oh EX's "Rebirth" Ability but my bench is full? Is the Ability used up, or is it not used and I can try it again later after I have some space on my bench?
    A. If you know the Ability will not affect the game state, you cannot use it. If your Bench is already full, you cannot use Rebirth. (Jun 9, 2016 TPCi Rules Team)

    == SHADOW DRAIN (Umbreon - BW: Dark Explorers)

    Q. If you use Umbreon's "Shadow Drain" attack against a Pokemon with {D} weakness and a Bursting Balloon attached, what are the correct order of operations for placing and healing damage?
    A. Umbreon's healing effect takes place within the context of the attack, so healing has to be completed before the attack is finished. Since Bursting Balloon is triggered by damage and you can't interrupt the attack's other effect (healing) to place those damage counters, you would heal Umbreon first and then place the damage counters for Bursting Balloon.

    == BURSTING BALLOON (XY: BREAKpoint)

    Q. If you use Umbreon's "Shadow Drain" attack against a Pokemon with {D} weakness and a Bursting Balloon attached, what are the correct order of operations for placing and healing damage?
    A. Umbreon's healing effect takes place within the context of the attack, so healing has to be completed before the attack is finished.
