    == BENCH BARRIER (Mr. Mime - XY: Generations)

    Q. Can a Pokemon with an attack that does damage to the opponent's Bench get through Mr. Mime's "Bench Barrier" Ability if the Attacking Pokemon has Stealthy Hood attached?
    A. No, it does not get through. The Bench Barrier Ability is not "being done" to the Attacking Pokemon. (May 30, 2019 TPCi Rules Team)


    == BLOODTHIRSTY EYES (Lycanroc GX - SM: Guardians Rising)

    Q. Can I use Lycanroc-GX's "Bloodthirsty Eyes to target an opponent?s Pokemon with Stealthy Hood attached?
    A. Bloodthirsty Eyes can target a Benched Pokemon with Stealthy Hood attached, but its effect would be immediately blocked. However, if the Pokemon with Stealthy Hood is Active, Bloodthirsty Eyes can target a Benched Pokemon without a Stealthy Hood and the switch would take place. (May 30, 2019 TPCi Rules Team)

    == PERPLEXING EYES (Meowstic - SM: Unbroken Bonds)

    Q. If my opponent has no Weakness and I use Meowstic's "Perplexing Eyes" attack, will I do extra damage on my next turn due to Weakness?
    A. If a Pokemon has no Weakness printed on the card, Perplexing Eyes will give that Pokemon a x2 Weakness to Psychic. (Unbroken Bonds FAQ; May 2, 2019 TPCi Rules Team; May 16, 2019 TPCi Rules Team)

    ***** PREVIOUS RULING: THIS ONE HAS BEEN UPDATED/OVERRULED; See Above *****
    Q. If my opponent has no Weakness and I use Meowstic's "Perplexing Eyes" attack, will I do extra damage on my next turn due to Weakness?
    A. No. if the Defending Pokemon does not have any Weakness Perplexing Eyes does not suddenly give it one. It only changes a Pokemon that already has Weakness to be weak to {P}. (Unbroken Bonds FAQ; May 2, 2019 TPCi Rules Team)
