Q. Can I use Professor Elm's Training Method if there are zero cards left in my deck?
A. No, you cannot search through your deck if there's nothing there to search. If there are cards in the deck you can fail to find a Pokemon because you don't know what may be in a deck, but since you do know whether there are ANY cards or not you cannot search through an empty deck.

I was wondering if I could use Pokémon Communication with zero cards left in my deck, communicating a Pokémon in, and taking out nothing from the deck (telling that I "didn't find what I was looking for" or "failed the search for a Pokémon" or whatever just makes sense).
My common sense tells me "no", but I just wanted to be sure.
