Metal Energy Bug

While playing against a deck using Durant and Metal Energy (Special Energy Cards), I found that it reduced an abnormal amount of damage. I had Deoxys in play, with a blend energy (psychic etc.) and a plasma energy attached. After using Helix Force against a Durant with one Metal Special Energy attached, the attack resulted in only 30 damage, instead of 50. Given the effects of Helix Force, the attack should have done 60 damage (adds 30 to a base 30 for each energy attached to the defending Pokémon) minus 10 damage due to the effects of the Metal Special Energy; the attack after combined effects, should have resulted in 50 damage.

 

I believe this effect may have occurred because my opponent also had two Durants (of the same type) on the bench with the one Metal Special Energy attached to each of them. Therefore, the game may have registered 3 Metal Energies to be attached to the any Durant card of a specific type.

 

Please let me know if I can provide any other information. Thank you!

i believe all durants in the current format are resistant to psychic? resistance would contribute to that extra 20 damage reduced?

I have fallen for the same thing a number of times before --- resistances can really sneak up on you.

 

I am glad to hear that your question has been resolved Celadonmd. Since your question has been answered I will go ahead and close this thread.
