I need an advice about how to judge one thing and how to rule about another:
Example number 1:
Player A has healthy pokemon without energies on a field and another with damages on it. He tries to play a Max Potion but wants to target healthy pokemon. As a judge I have to stop him there and say it's not legal target for that card as it would have no effect.
He wishes to take it back to his hand and not play it at all. Is he allowed to do so, or does he have to heal the damaged pokemon and discard energies from it? Assuming his opponent doesn't agree on taking max potion back.
(It could happen because a player forgot to move energies and tries to take Max Potion back or because he wanted to lose cards before playing Bianca but doesn't know meta ruling about not playing items for no effect)
Example number 2:
We have a player that plays some cards without declaring them. He recently simply played Full Art Corless and shuffled his hand into his deck. To me it looked like he played Full Art N as he plays both those cards in his deck, but because i don't want to make a misplay of shuffling my hand into my deck and lose a game I asked him what card he just played.
That's me being safe. However it looked like he did that on purpose to bait opponent (in that case me) into doing that and losing a game. I warned him that he should probably declare what he's playing as in bad lighting that we have there those 2 cards can be confused with each other.
If he ever does that again and his opponent takes his bait what should I do?
Obviously his opponent will get a game loss penalty but should I also punish the player that baits this way? If so in what manner? It wouldn't be as he wasn't warned before about it.
