    Dewgong(sky) reads:

    (C)(C)(W)(W) Crushing Ice - 40+
    This attack does 40 damage plus 10 more damage for each C Energy in the Defending Pokémon's Retreat Cost. Damage is calculated using the Defending Pokémon's Retreat Cost after applying effects to the Retreat Cost.

    Broken Ground Gym:

    The Retreat Cost for each player's Baby Pokemon and Basic Pokemon is increased by 1.


    Pokemon Power; Gluey Slime
    As long as Ariados is in play, each player must pay an additional (C) energy to retreat his or her Active Pokemon. Gluey Slime can't make a player pay more than an additional (C) energy to retreat a Pokemon, even if there is more than 1 Ariados in play.

    When Dewgong vs. Magmar EX, does Dewgong's attack do 40(attack) + 20(Magmar's retreat cost) + 20(for the BGG and Ariados), then X2 because of Magmar EX's weakness?

    40 + 20 + 20 = 80
    80 x 2 = 160 damage
    Is that right?

    When the card says "(after applying effects to the Retreat Cost)", does that mean that I add damage for the BGG and Ariados?

    Now I changed the card to Dewgong from Skyridge vs. Magmar EX.

    Note that if the TM Rhyhorn had a Balloon Berry attached, the attack would do 40x2=80

    No, Ariados' power can't work if Muk EX attacks (but the Broken Ground Gym would add to the damage).

    no But you now can use Team Aqua's Stadium instead. It's a good sub as long as your not play against any TA pokemon.
