    Q. I noticed that the wording of Darkness Energy has changed beginning with the TCG:EX Ruby/Sapphire expansion. Can you elaborate on this?

    A. Beginning with the TCG:EX Ruby/Sapphire expansion, the +10 extra damage for Darkness Energy is now applied *BEFORE* Weakness & Resistance rather than after W/R. Also, the extra benefits only apply if the Pokemon it's attached to is a Darkness type Pokemon or has the word "Dark" in the pokemon's name (i.e. "Dark Blastoise"). Finally, the -10 self-damage attribute has been removed; so if attached to a non-Dark Pokemon, it will no longer take any damage to itself as it did in previous expansions.

    These new mechanics apply to ALL printings of Darkness Energy.
