[CARD] Ditto (Triumphant #17) - The Dittobolic Poké-BODY does not activate when Sky Field (Roaring Skies #89) is in play

Recommended Posts

Card: Sky Field, Ditto
Card Number: Roaring Skies #89, Triumphant #17
Expected Action: Ditto's Dittoblic Poke-Body should reduce an opponent's bench to 4 Pokemon if there are more than 4, even if Sky Field is in play.
Actual Action: No Effect.
Steps to Reproduce: Bench a Ditto when the opponent has more than 5 benched Pokemon via Sky Field.

 

Ditto's Pokebody:

 

Dittobolic

The number of Benched Pokémon your opponent can have is now 4. If your opponent has 5 Benched Pokémon, your opponent must discard 1 of them and all cards attached to it.

 

 

The text on Ditto's Poke-body is obviously incompatible with the current set's card mechanics, because it says "If your opponent has 5 Benched Pokémon, your opponent must discard 1 of them and all cards attached to it." While this does not take into account the possibility of more than 5 benched Pokemon, I think the effect's first sentence takes precedence and should reduce the opponent's bench to 4 regardless.

 

Unlimited bugs are so fun.

Hi there!

 

We've received an official ruling that this is working as intended. The effects of Sky Field take priority over the Dittobolic Poké-BODY.

 

As such, I'll be closing this thread. Thanks for your understanding! :)
