    ok so mawile's attack "mining" reads

    Mining
    Search your deck for a Trainer card, show it to your opponent, and put it into your hand. If that card is a Pokemon Tool card, you may attach it to 1 of your Pokemon instead. Shuffle your deck afterward.

    my question is can this attack be used to search for DP on cards that only read SUPPORTER or STADIUM?

    im pretty sure it CANT but a judge at cities ruled that it could and i wanted to ask here to make sure he wasnt full of it

    Yes, it can search for Supporter and Stadium cards.

    Mawile is a pre-DP card, where Trainer meant anything Trainer-related. Read it as though it said (in DP language)....
