Sorry for writing my question here, but I couldn't find a better place.
I am starting my journey with Pokemon TCG, but not with the online version, but the real one. During my private duels, I've been thinking about some rules and I am not sure if I get them correctly. So, let's move on:
1. Let's say it's my turn. I decide to play a pokemon with an ability. Can I use this ability instantly or do I have to wait to my next turn?
2. I got a Trumbeak in my deck. His ability is Mountain Pass. It says:
"Once during your turn (before you attack), if this Pokemon is in your hand, you may reveal it. If you do, look at the top card of your opponent's deck and put this Pokemon in the Lost Zone. If that card is a Supporter card, you may put it in the lost zone. If your opponent has no card, you can't use this ability."
Does it mean, that I use its' ability while it's still in my hands and I instantly discard it after using?
3. I also want to know how confusion exactly works. If I'm confused, how do i get rid of it? I've read, that if I decide to attack I have to flip a coin (I know what happens if I get head/tails), but what if I decide to skip turn or to use a non attack ability that specific pokemon has (like draw a card or heal)? Do I also have to flip a coin?
I would appreciate any help and sorry again for posting it in a wrong place.
