    Here's an interesting mechanic that I haven't seen in the game before that would be a big game-changer.

    Rayquaza Lv. X 110 HP (C)
    Level-Up: Put on Rayquaza
    Poke-Body: Air Lock
    As long as there is a Stadium card in play, prevent all effects of attacks, Poke-Powers, and Poke-Bodies done to anything that is not in play.
    (C)(C)(C) Air Claws (60)
    Weakness: (C) x2
    Resistance: (F) -20
    Retreat Cost: (C)(C)

    This means that attacks, Poke-Powers, and Poke-Bodies can only affect cards in play. They cannot affect decks, discard piles, hands, Prizes, or players.

    Interesting, good looking fake, perhaps you should give it another attack, because the Body and just the plan CCC for 60 is kinda bland

    Good fake though, i really like that body

    CCC for 60 is a normal usual attack. change it to something that requires fire and lightning nrgy. And something taht discards for massive amounts of damage.

    Attacks should be something like

    [.] Spiral Gathering

    Flips 4 coins. For each heads, search your deck for a basic Energy card and attach it to Rayquaza. Shuffle your deck afterwards.

    [R][L][C][C] Draco Meteor 120

    Discard 2 Energies attached to Rayquaza. During your next turn any damage done by Rayquaza is reduced by 40.

    Idk I just think that sounds sweet. I liek the Poke-Body though

    Ehhhh the new Rayquaza has a good attack already. Give him like a healing attasck or something.

    How do you win the game? You can't draw prizes with the body.

    rayquaza usually discards or damage itsself but since its not like a chansey it shouldnt heal but it could.

    Back to back posts merged. The following information has been added:

    prevent stuff done to your stuff not in play. for instence discard the top card of your opponents deck. it would be prevented if u have a stadium. you can draw prizes.;;

    Charchar hit the nail on the head for the effect. It doesn't stop you from taking Prizes. Rather, it prevents deck searches, deck draws, deck discards, Prize-flipping, effects on PLAYERS, since the players are not considered in play, effects on hands, and such. The effects of attacks, Powers, and Bodies are confined to within the In-Play area.

    For example, the effect of Psychic Lock would be prevented because the effect is on the opponent, which is not in play.

    Love Air Lock. Needs better attacks, tho.

    Like these.

    [.] Spirit Away - Place Rayquaza and all cards attached to it on top of your deck. Then, choose one of your opponent's Pokemon. Your opponent places that Pokemon and all cards attached to it on top of his or her deck. Both players shuffle their decks afterward.

    :colorless Ozone Breath 30 - Flip a coin until you get tails. For each heads, remove 3 damage counters from Rayquaza. If the result of the first coin flip is tails, this attack does no damage, and the Defending Pokemon is Paralyzed and Burned.

    :fire::lightning Dragon Pulse 60 - Discard 1 Energy card attached to Rayquaza or this attack does nothing. This attack does 10 damage to each of your opponent's Benched Pokemon.

    Good, no?

    Your deck is in play, so it doesn't prevent anything. Prize-flipping is done to things in play, so thats not prevented either. Also, I misread the body and didn't see the not.

    Your deck is not in play. Neither is your hand, or discard pile. Prizes aren't in play either. Only cards such as your Pokemon, Stadiums, Energy, Supporters, and Trainers can be in play. Anything in play is public information at all times (the number of cards in your hand/deck/discard pile are public info too, along with the contents of your discard pile.)

    That's every card in the game, so then all cards are in play!

    Multi Energy counts as every type of energy while in play.
    Now why can't I pull it out of my deck with Starmie (EX:Delta Species)'s Metal Navigation Power? Because it isn't in play while in the deck.

    The rules book is a very nice thing to be familiar with. So is the Compendium, which conveniently enough is linked to on the front page of this site.

    I think... LV.X pokemon tend to have attacks with interesting effects, not usually bland straight damage attacks. This doesn't mean give it a broken attack, it just means consider putting some effects onto the attack. IE: Torterra-esque spread, or perhaps Magmortar-esque sniping. Air Claws makes me think of something coming from above that you really aren't going to stop with anything, hence why I'm bringing up hitting the bench. I suppose you could have it ignore resistance or something similar as well. Perhaps even make the effect of Air Claws bring a different "air" to the game (by having it search the deck for a stadium and put it into play, for example).

    Just my thoughts... It IS cool to have something stop stuff as ridiculous as Quick Search, Telepass, Psychic Lock, etc. all in one card.

    *can be put into play*

    They aren't in play when they're prized, in your hand, in your deck, or in your discard pile.

    I meant that that is a pointless statement, "All cards in the game can be put in play"
  17. Papi/Manny

    The cards in your deck, hand, and prizes are not in play. But I don't see where in the rules/compendium it says that your deck and prizes are not in play. I guess an ATM question is in need, since what your referring too only talks about the cards themselves, not the deck or prizes in general.
  18. ShinySwampert

    ShinySwampert New Member

    I believe that only a card itself can be in play. That's the general idea of "in play".

    The deck is not in play; if it was, it's contents would also be in play. Same goes for the prizes.

    What I intended to imply is that only cards can be in play. Not the deck, or the prizes as they are.

    In play means:

    Your Active Pokemon
    Your Benched Pokemon
    All cards attached to those Pokemon
    Your opponent's Active Pokemon
    Your opponent's Benched Pokemon
    All cards attached to those Pokemon
    The Supporter card next to either player's Active Pokemon
    The Stadium card

    I've never read that anywhere, saying that your deck itself or prizes isn't in play. Please show me where you got your definitions.
