I think my life is a lie. All this time, since Base set was released, I always thought that the action of taking prize cards happened in between turns. I understand that when you knock out a pokemon with an attack, you take prizes right then, likewise, if an effect like poison or burn kills it too, however the turn has ended. I have a new deck that I've built with Greninja and Kingdra, and usually every turn, I'll try to use the Water Shuriken ability. Water Shuriken: Once during your turn (before your attack), you may discard a Water Energy card from your hand. If you do, put 3 damage counters on 1 of your opponent's Pokémon. My question though - are prizes always taken in between turns? Or are they taken immediately after a Pokemon is knocked out? I've KO'd pokemon using Water Shuriken before announcing my attack on the new defending Pokemon, and during one game, I was about to take my prize mid turn for doing so, when I stopped myself, and just waited until the end of my turn to take the prize. Thanks!
