    == CLEAR HUMMING (Altaria - XY: Roaring Skies)

    Q. Altaria has a printed weakness to Lightning, but it also has the "Clear Humming" Ability which creates an effect that gives it no weakness. What happens if it is attacked by Zebstrika with the "Zap Zone" Ability which makes its attack's damage ignore effects on the defending Pokemon? When Zebstrika attacks Altaria, is the damage altered by weakness or not?
    A. Clear Humming is an effect that gives Colorless Pokemon no weakness. Zap Zone ignores this effect, so Zebstrika's attack will be increased for {L} Weakness. (Mar 24, 2016 TPCi Rules Team)


    == FRIGHT NIGHT (Yveltal - XY: BREAKthrough)

    Q. If a Pokemon with Bursting Balloon tool attached is attacked by an Yveltal with the "Fright Night" Ability no damage is placed on the attacker, but is the tool discarded at the end of the turn as its text indicates?
    A. The Bursting Balloon damage placement effect is turned off, but the discard text is also an effect, so the tool is not discarded at the end of the turn. (Mar 24, 2016 TPCi Rules Team)


    == ZAP ZONE (Zebstrika - XY: BREAKpoint)

    Q. Altaria has a printed weakness to Lightning, but it also has the "Clear Humming" Ability which creates an effect that gives it no weakness. What happens if it is attacked by Zebstrika with the "Zap Zone" Ability which makes its attack's damage ignore effects on the defending Pokemon?
