View Full Version : New rulings - Metal energy, and so on...
08/11/2003, 09:02 PM
Please forgive me - I've been living under a rock, and haven't heard about the new ruling on Metal energy, (and all the rule changes too). It's just that I use a Metal deck, and I'm worried that my "ironclad" Shuckle (4 metal energy + 2 grass energy = invincible) may not be so effective any more...
Or if there's an official page with the ruling, can you please tell me where it is?

Metal Energy officialy excludes the sentence about non-Metal Pokemon reducing their damage done, and the defensive section now will only apply to a Metal Pokemon.

Okay - looks like that Shuckle is going to have to come out of my deck, and Steelix will be replaced with Aggron.

If you wan't see all the rules changes, all you need to do is look at a rulebook from R/S(by a deck, borrow it from a freind, ect, ect...), on page #2 it has a list of all the new rulings, sorry but I don't of any web sites where you could get the info.

Yes, the new metal/dark energy rulings are certainly one of the biggest changes to the game. They will change the way alot of deck are played. Lol, I guess we dont have any more steel chancey heh.
