Pokemon Ranger and attacks that effect Weakness and Resistance

    The new rule concerning effects of Weakness and Resistance states that "the term 'any effects' will no longer include effects that alter Weakness and Resistance." I assume that this is because effects on mechanics become part of the mechanic, just like changing the amount of damage counters on the Poison Special Condition?

    So if PRC Gardevoir-EX uses Shining Wind to remove its Weakness for a turn, can Pokemon Ranger reverse that effect? Pokemon Ranger uses "all effects" in its phrasing, but I assume that the new ruling still applies and Gardevoir-EX's Weakness stays removed for a turn.
