    ERRATA
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------

    == DOUBLE THREAD (Galvantula - XY: Steam Siege)

    * Due to an error in card text, Galvantula's "Double Thread" attack has been changed. The original text says, "This attack does 30 damage to 2 of your opponent's Pokémon. Also apply Weakness and Resistance for Benched Pokémon". The text has been changed to match the original intention of the attack, which is to affect only Benched Pokémon. Double Thread is updated to say, "This attack does 30 damage to 2 of your opponent's Benched Pokémon. Apply Weakness and Resistance". Effective immediately, Galvantula's "Double Thread" attack will use this updated attack text instead of the original text. (Aug 8, 2016 Pokemon Organized Play News)

    == GALE WINGS (Talonflame - XY: Steam Siege)

    * Talonflame's "Gale Wings" Ability says if it's in your hand when you are setting up to play, you may put it face down as your Active Pokemon. If your opening hand has no Basics but you do have Talonflame, you can choose to put it out as your Active OR show you have no basics and mulligan... YOU DECIDE. (Steam Siege FAQ; Aug 4, 2016 TPCi Rules Team)


    == PLAY BALL (Foongus - XY: Steam Siege)

    Q. Can I use Foongus' "Play Ball" Ability to retrieve any Ultra Ball, Great Ball, Dive Ball, Repeat Ball, etc. cards from the Discard Pile?
    A. Nope, Play Ball only works for plain old Poke Ball cards. (Steam Siege FAQ; Aug 4, 2016 TPCi Rules Team)


    == WONDER LOCK (Klefki - XY: Steam Siege)

    Q. Can I use Klefki's "Wonder Lock" Ability if Klefki doesn't have any cards attached to it?
    A. Yes, you may. (Steam Siege FAQ; Aug 4, 2016 TPCi Rules Team)

    == CHARGE ORDER (Pawniard - XY: Steam Siege)

    Q. Does Pawniard's "Change Order" attack only include Pawniard in play, or does it also include any Pawniard cards in the Discard Pile?
    A. It only counts Pawniard in play, including itself. It does not include any in the Discard Pile. (Steam Siege FAQ; Aug 4, 2016 TPCi Rules Team)


    == DESPAIR RAY (M Gardevoir-EX - XY: Steam Siege)

    Q. When I discard my Benched Pokemon for M Gardevoir-EX's "Despair Ray" attack, does my opponent get to take prizes for them?
    A. No, you are discarding the Benched Pokemon, not knocking them out. (Steam Siege FAQ; Aug 4, 2016 TPCi Rules Team)


    == DOUBLE THREAD (Galvantula - XY: Steam Siege)

    * Due to an error in card text, Galvantula's "Double Thread" attack has been changed. The original text says, "This attack does 30 damage to 2 of your opponent's Pokémon. Also apply Weakness and Resistance for Benched Pokémon". The text has been changed to match the original intention of the attack, which is to affect only Benched Pokémon. Double Thread is updated to say, "This attack does 30 damage to 2 of your opponent's Benched Pokémon. Apply Weakness and Resistance". Effective immediately, Galvantula's "Double Thread" attack will use this updated attack text instead of the original text. (Aug 8, 2016 Pokemon Organized Play News)


    == POISON UP (Croagunk - XY: Steam Siege)

    Q. If I use Croagunk's "Poison Up" to attack the same Defending Pokemon on successive turns, does the amount of damage counters due to Poison increase? For example, the first time I use it the poisoned Defending Pokemon starts taking 3 more damage counters between turns, then if I use it again it starts taking 6 more damage counters (3+3), then 9 more damage counters (3+3+3), and so on?
    A. Yes, each time you use Poison Up it increases the amount of poison damage by "3 more" than what the Defending Pokemon was already taking at the time of the attack. (Steam Siege FAQ; Aug 4, 2016 TPCi Rules Team)

    == CAPTIVATING POKE PUFF (XY: Steam Siege)

    Q. If I use Captivating Poke Puff and put one of my opponent's Basic Pokemon on the bench that has an Ability (like Shaymin EX's "Setup"), does the opponent get to use that Ability right away?
    A. No, Captivating Poke Puff does not trigger any coming into play Abilities. (Steam Siege FAQ; Aug 4, 2016 TPCi Rules Team)

    Q. Captivating Poke Puff says to put any number of Basic Pokemon you find in your opponent's hand onto their Bench. Does this allow you to put more than 5 Pokemon on the bench?
    A. No, Captivating Poke Puff does not allow you to exceed the normal limits of the game. You can put any number of Basic Pokemon onto your opponent's Bench up to the maximum size of the Bench. (Steam Siege FAQ; Aug 4, 2016 TPCi Rules Team)

    Q. When using Captivating Poke Puff can I choose to NOT put any Basic Pokemon onto my opponent's bench, or do I have to put at least one down if I'm able to?
    A. No, you don't have to put any Basic Pokemon onto your opponent's bench if you don't want to. (Aug 11, 2016 TPCi Rules Team)

    Q. Can you play Captivating Poke Puff if your opponent's Bench is full?
    A. Yes, you can. Your opponent still reveals their hand, but you simply cannot put any Basic Pokemon onto your opponent's bench. (Aug 11, 2016 TPCi Rules Team)

    Q. Can you play Captivating Poke Puff if your opponent has no cards in their hand?
    A. No, you cannot. You cannot play a Trainer card for no net effect. (Aug 11, 2016 TPCi Rules Team)


    == NINJA BOY (XY: Steam Siege)

    Q. When I use Ninja Boy to swap out a heavily damaged EX Pokemon for one that is not an EX, if there's enough damage to KO it does the opponent take one prize or two?
    A. Since the swapped in Pokemon is not an EX Pokemon, your opponent takes only one prize card for the KO. (Steam Siege FAQ; Aug 4, 2016 TPCi Rules Team)


    == POKEMON RANGER (XY: Steam Siege)

    Q. Pokemon Ranger says "remove all effects of attacks on each player and his or her Pokemon." Does that mean it gets to remove any Poison, Paralyze, etc. effects that were caused by an attack?
    A. No, Pokemon Ranger does not remove any Special Conditions. It removes effects like "the Defending Pokemon cannot retreat", "the opponent cannot play any Item cards from his or her hand", and things like that. (Aug 11, 2016 TPCi Rules Team)
