First of all, I think there's some confusion about Salamence. The Compendium reads: Unless Holon Research Tower (stadium) is in play, Salamence does in fact have to discard a Metal Energy card (and not just anything that provides metal). +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Now, this confusion seems to be carrying over into Gardevoir ex? Gardevoir's attack states, "You may move a fire energy card attached to Gardevoir ex to 1 of your benched Pokemon." For as long as I've been playing, the rule I've always known is: >> If the card says, "move a XxXxX energy", then you were allowed to move any energy that provides that type (e.g. fire). >> But if the card says, "move a XxXxX energy card", it has to be that specific energy card ONLY. The key word is "card". The head judges (in the original question) are probably unaware of any changes to this longstanding rule -- just as I am. Has this been changed? This ruling affects the attacks/powers on dozens of cards!! +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ By being able to move ANY energy card that provides fire (still using Gardevoir as an example), you could choose to move your Holon's Castform or Holon's Magneton (or double rainbow on non-EX's). Is it really the intent of this attack, to allow you to move 2 energies to your next attacker?
