I'm pretty sure I know the answer to this, but I just want to make sure.

There are several Pokemon whose attacks do damage based on how many of certain other Pokemon are in play. For example, Murkrow's Flock attack. I have the Flock Attack Murkrow active with 3 others on my bench. My partner has 2 of them on his bench. I don't get to count all 5 that are benched when figuring attack damage, correct?

It's the same with Dark Exeggcutor's MAX Burst attack: I don't get to count all the energy BOTH people on the opposing team have in play, right? I have to pick one opposing player or the other.

Let me know if I've got this right or if I need to look at this again.

Hey Luke, whats up? (Just so you know this is Ricky). As far as I can tell so far, you just pick 1 or the other, not both [Frown] . But if you could it would be so sweet!!! Koga's Zubat would be totally broken!!!

You get both, provided the attack states the number of murkrow in play. So TR meowth SHOULD be able to flip 20 coins provided each player has 5 pokemon out.

This is a GOOD thing. Remember it means player have to TEAM up to win. Which is a VERY good thing.

I'd go along with that if the attack damage was based on the number of a certain pokemon "in play". But if it refers to the number of a certain pokemon "you have in play", do I have to choose me or my partner to figure the damage or do I count both?

Similarly, if the attack damage depends on the number of pokemon "your opponent has in play", do I count both of them together or choose one or the other.

Dunno, what do you all think? There will be onviously be many cards that are open to interpretation. I would imagine that either you look through your deck or they look through theirs. Then you would count either the number of Zubat's YOU had or THEY had. It would have said total number in play instead of YOUR total number in play. MTM

This is MTM somewhat officiall answer from the Email... he interprates it one way, but it may not be the way it works out....

I beleive that it should be based on the # of pokemon ON YOUR own bench and the OPPONENT you choose to attack (and their bench).

FAR to much to abuse of otherwise...

If it says "on your bench" or "that you have in play" then you count your bench OR you count your partners bench (since "you" is transferable).
For "on your opponent's bench" or "that your opponent has in play"; either the same should go, or it should be the opponent you xhose to attack. Probably the former.

If it just says "in play" then count the whole lot!

Man, TR Meowth becomes a Kamikazi giant killer in Team format! Unown N or not, TR M is going to KO itself, but with average flipping, it should do 90-120 Damage to the opponent (depending on how full the benches are)!

Wizards has stated that if an attack references "your opponenthe effects of that attack cannot by split between your opponents. So the one you choose to attack would determine.

What about NDi Tyranitar or Dark Ursaring? Would that hit EVERYBODY or just you and the opponent you choose to use it on?

I'm in with the 'you have in play' means YOU (not your team) and 'your opponent' means the one you are attacking. 'In Play' or 'for each player' , like poison's 'after each player's turn', means for EVERYBODY.
