Absol (TEU) immune to Rule of Evil from Weavile (BUS)

Client Version: 2.61.0.4183

 

Server Version: 2.61.0.4256

 

Bundles Version: 1846
 
Archetypes Bundle Version: 11545
 
Localization Bundle Version: 11544
 

Current Game ID: d78a7280-4e6c-11e9-b9fc-22000af885d6

Cards: Absol  / Weavile

Card Number: Team Up #88 (Absol) / Burning Shadows #86 (Weavile)

Expected Action: Weavile's "Rule of Evil" attack should deal 60 damage to every Pokemon on the field with an ability, including an opponent's Absol in the active position. 

Actual Action: Weavile's "Rule of Evil" attack did not deal 60 damage to the previously mentioned opposing Absol in my opponent's active position. It did, however, deal 60 damage to every other Pokemon with an ability (opponent's psychic Alolan Muk and opponent's Zoroark-GX). My opponent's active Absol was immune, though, which is certainly a bug.

Steps to Reproduce: Use Weavile's "Rule of Evil" attack against an Absol in the opponent's active position, with an Alolan Muk (from the Sun and Moon base set) and a Zoroark-GX on the opponent's bench.

 

I can post the game log where this happened, if it would further help in resolving the issue.

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I think you're mistaken about this being a bug.

 

Absol (from Team Up) is a Basic Pokémon.  While your opponent had Alolan Muk on the bench, it's Ability says, "Each Basic Pokémon in play, in each player's hand, and in each player's discard pile has no Abilities."

 

Absol had no Ability at that point, and shouldn't have received 60 damage.

 

EDIT:  I double-checked the official rulings, and this should help make things clearer:

 

Q. Weavile's "Rule of Evil" attack does damage to each Pokemon that has an Ability. But if Garbodor's "Garbotoxin" Ability is activated would "Rule of Evil" only damage Garbodor?

A. That's right, because Garbotoxin says each Pokemon (except those with Garbotoxin) have no Abilities. (Sep 14, 2017 TPCi Rules Team)

Wow, that part somehow went completely over my head. Thank you for pointing it out and double-checking the official ruling  :)

Glad to be a small bit of help.  Your explanation, very well done, made it a learning lesson for all of us.
