2 Questions about the lil' card with a Weezing and Porygon!

1) Can Switch be used to Bench a paralyzed Pokemon?

2) Does Switch get around attacks that keep you from retreating? (like the Destiny Houndour or Genesis Murkrow)

--------------------
Best Decks
Kurai Tsuki no Kokoro

Elm, Oak, Cleffa and Copycat are archetypes.

Pleasant Death by way of Dragon

Retreating is when you discard the energy that it tells you in the bottom-left corner.

Switch is totally more powerful than that. It is, the bomb, and needed in the majority of decks.

Top 75 in the WORLD in Limited! =)

14-5 overall at Worlds in side events, 3-3 in Team Legendary Sealed, 5-2 in Theme Deck challenge (using Trouble!), 11-2 overall in one-player events... 6-0 in Gym Draft! =)

www.pojo.com/pokemon.html is the COOLEST site ANYWHERE.

And for anyone who cares, I discovered the Strength Charm misruling. You all won your STS', but I discovered the strength Charm misruling. So there.

Remember,Switch & Ballon Berry is counted as "different".Although two of them does the same thing,Ballon Berry is counted as retreat.So,if the paralyzed/asleep Pokemon have Ballon Berry attached,you can't discard Ballon Berry & bring back to Bench.If a Pokemon can't retreat because of opponent attacks,you can't discard Ballon Berry & bring Active to Bench,too.

So,Switch is more powerful than Ballon Berry.
