    Pokemon Reversal has been printed in 4 different sets in Japans. It first appeared in VS, then E-Card 1, ADV 1's Torchic mini deck, and then in a Movie release commemoration VS pack

    The wording for the VS and E-Card 1 versions are identical

    The wording from ADV 1's Torchic mini deck was changed to accommodate double active battles

    The wording from the Movie release commemoration VS pack was identical with ADV 1's except that it also included a (reminder text).

    The (reminder text) translates into "The Opponent chooses which of his/her active pokemon is replaced"

    You can see a scan of the Japanese Versions here

    The American Ex-Ruby/Sapphire's Pokemon Reversal was translated incorectly, with wording implying that the opponent would choose which of his benched pokemon would be replaced with his active. The opponent actually chooses which of his active pokemon are switched, while the user of the card chooses which benched pokemon is switched. (VERY similiar to Salamance's Dragon Wind Poke-Power)

    This ruling error needs to be fixed ASAP
