    The Swampert from R/S, the holo one with the Pokemon Power Water Call states, "Once during your turn (before you attack), you may attach a Water Energy from you hand to your Active Pokemon. This power can't be used if Swampert is afected by a Special Condition."

    My question is, Is this power cumulative? Meaning if I have 3 Swampert on my bench, can I attach 3 Water Energy to my active pokemon?

    I personally think that this is how the card is played, but that is obviously how I want it to be played...lol. Maybe it has already been ruled on (which it prolly has), and I just haven't seen it? If anyone could fill me in on some help, it would be very much appreciated.

    Thanx in advance,
  2. Any sort of power that states 'once per turn' is usually cumulative. Unless, of course, it has a clause stating that the number of those Poke-POWER in play doesn't matter.

    In this case, yes, it is cumulative.

    I was pretty sure that was how the card was played b/c I used the same reasoning as MHZ did. Thanx 4 all the help guys. BDS , thanx for the official ruling.
