[CARD] Malamar EX (Phantom Forces #58) - The Hyper Hypnosis Ability isn't blocked by the Safeguard Ability

Hello, here's the bug I encountered :

 

Client: 2.29.0.1649.Live.16987:81#736

Server: 2.29.3.1865
Card: Malamar EX
Card Number: XY Phantom Forces 58/119

Expected Action: An energy was attached to a benched Malamar EX, it activated his "Hyper Hypnosis" ability, putting the defending Pokémon to sleep.

The opponent's defending Pokemon was a Sigilyph (Black & White: Legendary Treasures 66/113) with the "Safeguard" ability preventing all effects of attacks from Pokémon-EX.

The sleeping effect should have been nullified.

Actual Action: Hyper Hypnosis activated without problem, ignored the Sigilyph's Safeguard, putting him to sleep.

Steps to Reproduce: Attach an energy to a benched Malamar EX with "Hyper Hypnosis" while the opponent's defending Pokemon has "Safeguard" and see if it works correctly

 

Thanks for your time.

Well, I searched for "Safeguard" in the bug section before posting, and I found, for example, that EX's abilities that switch energies weren't working on Pokémon with the Safeguard ability.

Is this considered an attack ? Because I see no harm in switching energies. :)

Moving the energies is an effect of Primal Kyogre's attack, so Safeguard does prevent the attachment of energy.

My mistake then, I really thought Safeguard was covering abilities as well.

Sorry for the incovenience and thank you for the clarification.

Hey there!

 

For further clarification, the exact words of the Safeguard Ability are: Prevent all effects of attacks, including damage, done to this Pokémon by Pokémon-EX.

 

Bolded for emphasis, you can see that only attack effects would be blocked – not those of Abilities.

 

I'll be closing this thread, as it isn't a bug.
