In today's match, my son used Gardevoir's Lv.X Bring Down to send my benched Helix Fossil to my discard pile before I had a chance to evolve it to Omastar with a Rare Candy. Next turn I played Suicune to my bench and used Aqua Recover Poke-Power to get back the Helix Fossil and two other water pokemon from my discard pile. My son told me that I cannot get back the Helix Fossil because it is not considered a water type pokemon. Question 1. I thought that in the deck a Fossil was a Trainer but once it was on the bench or active is was considered a pokemon. Is this correct? Question 2. Is Helix Fossil considered a water type and can you use Suicune's Aqua Recover to get it back from the discard pile? Question 3. Assuming I had evolved Helix Fossil to Omanyte or Rare Candied to Omastar before my son used Bring Down would that make any different on the use of Aqua Recover? I check for rulings on this but could not find none. Thanks!
