Using Ninja Boy on a Benched Pokemon affected by Metal Fortress, Bench Barrier, or Defense Sign allows those effects to persist after the new Pokemon becomes Active. Due to the ease with which this bug can be activated and the high potential for exploitation, this card has been temporarily banned from play until a fix can be deployed.
