Complicated attack question

    If I have a Weavile-SW on the bench to turn my attacking Pokemon Dark and Darkrai LV_X -GE on the bench to make each Darkness Energy Special, how do I calculate damage to my opponents Pokemon when I attack with Exploud -Ge?


    Ambient Noise requires 2 Energy for the attack. I would have 2 Dark Energy attached to him and Weavile would turn him dark for his turn while he attacks.

    On the flip if its heads it normally does 50 damage to the defending Pokemon. Since I have turned him dark and Darkrai makes the energy special, would the damge be 50 + 20 for 70 ?

    If I flip tails, it says it does 20 damage to each of my opponents Benched Pokemon. Since I have two Special Darkness Energy ( thanks to Darkrai and Weavile) would the damge to each Benched Pokemon be the regular 20 plus 20 because both energy are now considered to be special Darkness Energy for a total of 40 damage to each of my opponents benched Pokemon?


    Thanks for your help,

    Special Dark only adds to damage to the Active Pokemon.

    So, 70 for the active, 20 to the bench,
