    ERRATA
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------

    == ENERGY SHIFT (Electrode - DP:Secret Wonders)

    * Electrode is receiving errata for the card to reflect that its Poké-Power can trigger when any attack Knocks Out Electrode, not just during its owner's turn. "If Electrode would be Knocked Out by damage from an attack, you may use this power. Electrode isn’t discarded. Instead, attach it as an Energy card to 1 of your Pokémon. While attached, this card is a Special Energy card and provides every type of Energy but provides only 1 Energy at a time. (Has no effect other than providing Energy.)" (Dec 6, 2007 PUI Rules Team; Jan 29, 2008 Pokemon Organized Play News)

    ***** PREVIOUS RULING: THIS ONE HAS BEEN UPDATED; See Above *****
    * Electrode's "Energy Shift" Poke-POWER works on either player's turn; it should not say, "once during YOUR turn". (Dec 6, 2007 PUI Rules Team)


    == GHOST HEAD (Banette - DP:Secret Wonders)

    * Banette is receiving errata for its first attack, Ghost Head. Ghost Head can't cause Banette to Knock Out itself ... the attack has to leave Banette with at least 10 HP. "Put as many damage counters as you like on Banette. (You can't Knock Out Banette.) Put that many damage counters on the Defending Pokémon." (Jan 29, 2008 Pokemon Organized Play News)

    POKEMON ATTACKS

    == BRING DOWN (Gardevoir LV.X - DP:Secret Wonders)

    Q. What happens if Gardevoir LV.X uses "Bring Down", but the lowest HP Pokemon is protected by some effect like Holon Energy WP?
    A. The Pokemon with Holon Energy WP attached can still be attacked with Bring Down, but it will not get Knocked Out because the protection of Holon Energy WP prevents all effects (including automatic KO) except damage done to that Pokemon. (Jan 31, 2008 PUI Rules Team)


    == FLASH CANNON (Dialga - Diamond & Pearl; Dialga - DP:Great Encounters)

    Q. If I use Dialga's "Flash Cannon" against a Basic Pokemon, can I still return the energy cards into my hand?
    A. Yes you can. There is no pre-condition that the Defending Pokemon must be evolved in order to return the energy cards into your hand. (Jan 31, 2008 PUI Rules Team)
