    So I have five Pokemon on my Bench with the Theta Stop Ancient Trait. My opponent plays GRI Sudowoodo on their Bench. Since Sudowoodo's Ability seems to target the opposing player and/or their Bench (or perhaps it's altering a game mechanic) instead of targeting the actual Pokemon, does that mean that my Bench would still be limited to four Pokemon?

    How have we not been asked this question before?

    Theta Stop would not prevent the discard.
    As you note, it is not the Pokemon being targeted, so the player would still have to choose Pokemon to discard.
