    ERRATA
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------

    == SHIELD ENERGY (XY: Primal Clash)

    * The wording of Shield Energy is now as follows, "This card can only be attached to {M} Pokémon. This card provides {M} Energy only while this card is attached to a {M} Pokémon. Any damage done to the {M} Pokémon this card is attached to by an opponent's attack is reduced by 10 (after applying Weakness and Resistance). (If this card is attached to anything other than a {M} Pokémon, discard this card.)". Damage should be reduced *after* applying Weakness and Resistance. Templating changed to reflect the reduction of damage being taken. (Apr 24, 2015 TPCi Announcement; May 7, 2015 TPCi Rules Team)

    POKEMON ANCIENT TRAITS
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------

    == DELTA EVOLUTION (XY: Roaring Skies)

    Q. Can I discard a Pokemon with the "Delta Evolution" Ancient Trait to evolve ANY Pokemon in play?
    A. No, that's not how it works. You can only play the Pokemon with the Delta Evolution Ancient Trait on top of a Pokemon it can normally evolve from. (Roaring Skies FAQ; May 7, 2015 TPCi Rules Team)

    Q. Can I use Rare Candy to evolve a Basic Pokemon into a Stage 2 Pokemon with the "Delta Evolution" Ancient Trait on my first turn or on the Basic Pokemon's first turn in play?
    A. No, you may not. (Roaring Skies FAQ; May 7, 2015 TPCi Rules Team)


    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    POKEMON ABILITIES
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------

    == BRIGHT DOWN (Latias EX - BW: Plasma Freeze)

    Q. My active Arbok uses its "Gastro Acid" attack against Weezing with the "Aftermath" Ability. Then on my opponent's turn he uses Weezing's "Smogbank" attack to do 20 damage to each of my Pokemon. If I have Latias-EX with the "Bright Down" Ability on my bench, would it take damage or not?
    A. Since Weezing has no Abilities due to Arbok's attack, it would do 20 damage to Latias-EX. (May 7, 2015 TPCi Rules Team)


    == TOOL CONCEALMENT (Banette - XY: Roaring Skies)

    * Banette's "Tool Concealment" ability means Pokemon Tool cards simply have no effect. They are still considered as Items and Pokemon Tool cards, so "Garbotoxin" still works, "Startling Megaphone" would be able to remove them, etc. (Roaring Skies FAQ; May 7, 2015 TPCi Rules Team)

    Q. If Banette's "Tool Concealment" ability is active, can I attach multiple Tool cards to my Pokemon?
    A. No, you cannot. (Roaring Skies FAQ; May 7, 2015 TPCi Rules Team)


    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    POKEMON ATTACKS
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------

    == CONTACT (Deoxys - XY: Roaring Skies)

    Q. Can I use Contact after my first turn, or only during my very first turn of the game?
    A. You can use it on any turn, including your turn if you go first (when you normally would not be allowed to attack). (Roaring Skies FAQ; May 7, 2015 TPCi Rules Team)


    == DOOM DESIRE (Jirachi - XY:Roaring Skies)

    Q. Both players have 1 prize left. Player-A uses Jirachi's "Doom Desire" attack. Player-B attacks Jirachi with enough damage to KO it with the same Pokemon that got hit by "Doom Desire". Who wins? Or is it a tie?
    A. The KO from Player-B's attack happens before the end of his turn, so the game is over before Doom Desire's effect gets to happen. Player-B wins. (May 7, 2015 TPCi Rules Team)


    == EVOLUTION JAMMER (Banette - XY: Roaring Skies)

    Q. If my opponent used Banette's "Evolution Jammer" attack, can I use a Pokemon with the "Delta Evolution" Ancient Trait to evolve anyway?
    A. No, Delta Evolution does not override Evolution Jammer. (Roaring Skies FAQ; May 7, 2015 TPCi Rules Team)


    == GASTRO ACID (Arbok - XY)

    Q. My active Arbok uses its "Gastro Acid" attack against Weezing with the "Aftermath" Ability. Then on my opponent's turn he uses Weezing's "Smogbank" attack to do 20 damage to each of my Pokemon. If I have Latias-EX with the "Bright Down" Ability on my bench, would it take damage or not?
    A. Since Weezing has no Abilities due to Arbok's attack, it would do 20 damage to Latias-EX. (May 7, 2015 TPCi Rules Team)


    == HOMING PIDOVE (Pidove - XY: Roaring Skies)

    Q. What happens with the "Homing Pidove" attack if I choose not to shuffle my deck?
    A. Homing Pidove tells you to look at the top card of your deck. You don't get to keep that card, so you put it back onto the top of your deck. Then you can choose whether to shuffle your deck or leave it the way it is. (Roaring Skies FAQ; May 7, 2015 TPCi Rules Team)


    == SHAKE IT OFF (Exeggutor - XY: Roaring Skies)

    Q. If my opponent has a Robo Substitute on the bench, does that add 20 damage to Exeggutor's "Shake It Off" attack?
    A. Yes, Robo Substitute counts as a {C} Pokemon while in play. (Roaring Skies FAQ; May 7, 2015 TPCi Rules Team)


    == TRICK STICKER (Pachirisu - XY: Phantom Forces)

    Q. Pachirisu's "Trick Sticker" attack says, "the Defending Pokemon's Weakness is now {L} until the end of your next turn". Does that mean the weakness is applied "now" before the damage is done for this attack?
    A. Nice try, but no. Like all attacks that don't explicitly say otherwise, the effects of attacks are not applied until after damage is done. (May 7, 2015 TPCi Rules Team)


    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    TRAINER CARDS
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------

    == MEGA TURBO (XY: Roaring Skies)

    Q. Can I use the effect of Mega Turbo on Primal Groudon EX or Primal Kyogre EX?
    A. Yes. They do say that they are Mega Pokemon on their cards. (Roaring Skies FAQ; May 7, 2015 TPCi Rules Team)


    == WIDE LENS (XY: Roaring Skies)

    * Wide Lens says to apply Weakness and Resistance for attacks that do damage to the opponent's Benched Pokemon. This will not affect attacks that say "this attack isn't affected by Weakness, Resistance, or any other effects" or "ignore all effects including Weakness and Resistance"; Weakness and Resistance is still ignored for those attacks. (Roaring Skies FAQ; May 7, 2015 TPCi Rules Team)

    ENERGY CARDS
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------

    == SHIELD ENERGY (XY: Primal Clash)

    * The wording of Shield Energy is now as follows, "This card can only be attached to {M} Pokémon. This card provides {M} Energy only while this card is attached to a {M} Pokémon. Any damage done to the {M} Pokémon this card is attached to by an opponent's attack is reduced by 10 (after applying Weakness and Resistance). (If this card is attached to anything other than a {M} Pokémon, discard this card.)". Damage should be reduced *after* applying Weakness and Resistance. Templating changed to reflect the reduction of damage being taken. (Apr 24, 2015 TPCi Announcement; May 7, 2015 PUI Rules Team)
