[CHRISBO EDIT - added date to the title; hopefully we'll be receiving these on a semi-regular basis.]

Hot off the Prof mail, new Rules Teams Rulings.
These are official:

1) A Buzzap'd Electrode is considered a Special Energy card, meaning it can be affected by all effects that target Special Energy cards. This also means that a Buzzap'd Electrode provides 2 colorless energy if a Light Dragonite and its Miraculous Wind Pokemon power is Active.

2) A correction. A Miracle Energy card WILL stay in play while a Light Dragonite and its Miraculous Wind Pokemon power is active. If at the end of any turn the Miraculous Wind Pokemon power is NOT active then the Miraculous Energy is still discarded as normal.

3) The Here Comes team Rocket Trainer does NOT permanently change a game rule as previously understood. It has each player flip over all of
their prize cards to face up. If a subsequent effect states place a prize card face down, then you place that prize card face down. If an effect (like Rattata's Trickery) has you trade a prize card and does NOT state to place it face down, then you put the new prize card out in the same state as the old one.

4) Shining Mewtwo's Reflect Shield should have said "Shining Mewtwo does 20 damage to the attacking Pokemon." Apply Weakness and Resistance for this attack as normal.

5) If Magby uses Sputter then Suicune's Crystal Body Pokemon power WOULD be shut off as it is NOT targeted against Suicune but is a global effect.

6) If Magby's Sputter was in effect (of Goop Gas attack for that matter) then "when you play" Pokemon powers (such as Dark Golbat's Stare or Dark Crobat's Surprise Bite) still function. This is because those effects are triggered by playing the card and take place BEFORE they are put into play (where Sputter would shut them off). This is the same reason why Rainbow/Potion/Heal energy still do their "when you play them from your hand" effects even with Light Dragonite's Miraculous Wind active.

A nice group of rulings! [Smile]
