[CARD] Chesnaught (XY #14) - The Spiky Shield Ability is not properly interacting with other cards


Recommended Posts

When Machamp uses Machamp Crush: "During your opponent's next turn, any damage done by attacks from the Defending Pokémon is reduced by 40 (before applying Weakness and Resistance)."


However, when Chesnaught (XY 14/146) is damaged by Machamp, his Ability, Spiky Shield: "If this Pokémon is your Active Pokémon and is damaged by an opponent's attack (even if this Pokémon is Knocked Out), put 3 damage counters on the Attacking Pokémon." does not activate. Since Chesnaught's ability occurs during the Machamp user's turn, Machamp should take 30 damage every time he attacks Chesnaught with Machamp Crush. Machamp's effect would not take effect until after it goes back to Chesnaught's turn.


I actually just lost a Theme Deck tournament finals due to this bug... :(

I was playing against someone who was using Chestnaught with the Ability of Spiky Shield, where whenever it gets hit by an attack, the attacker gets 30 damage.


That 30 damage was not happening to me.
