if my opponent has a cradily ex as his active pokemon, can I use rare candys? :grass:
No, but you could use Wally's Training or something else that will pull the evo from your deck or discard pile.
You can't play an evo card from your hand.
ok, thanks for that :grass:
Wait a sec, doesn't Rare Candy say "put", as in the "put" that bypasses all other rules?
I'm with Xeno...since Rare candy doesn't trigger "play from hand" effects then it should bypass Cradily ex.
Q. My opponent has Cradily ex in play. Can I use a Trainer card, or an
attack on a Pokémon to evolve my Active Pokémon?
A. You could not use an Pokémon’s attack or play a Trainer card to
evolve your Active Pokémon, unless the Evolution card you would be putting
into play, comes from somewhere other than your hand. [So Rare Candy
cannot be used, but Wally's Training can.] (Team Magma vs Team Aqua

I see...seems rather contradictory to me...seing as Dark Crobat (for example) is coming from your hand too. *shrug* But since when do rulings have to make sense?
Note, though, that Cradily ex has to be Active and it only prevents evolutions of the Opponent's Active.
It doesn't shut down all evolution.
