Tyranitar GX vs Wobbuffet (PF 36) - possible bug?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Just on a whim I decided to play Tyranitar-GX deck vs one of the ai opponents and noticed something that may or may not be a bug. Tyranitar GX has an ability that sends all cards of a knocked out pokemon to the Lost zone.

I defeated one pokemon, and all of the cards were sent to the Lost zone, as they should have. Then the ai chose Wobbuffet, which blocks all abilities, except for [** pokemon. I knocked it out in the next turn, together with two other basic pokemon on the opponents's bench. Wobbuffet's cards were moved, as I expected, to the discard pile. But then the cards of the other two pokemon were also discarded the normal way, despite the fact that Wobbuffet, was no longer an active pokemon.



On the next turn, it all came back to normal. Looks like the effect of Wobbuffet's ability lingered just a fraction too long... or maybe I'm reading this incorrectly? Do these abilities stop working only when the turn ends?

All I can think of is that the action of KOing your opponent's 3 Pokemon is considered simultaneous. The log is forced to write it as 3 separate actions, so when you read the order determined by the log it looks like Wobuffet was removed from the board before the other 2 were considered by the log as KO'd, but in reality all 3 KO's happen because of the same attack.

 

There's no real reason as to why the active Pokemon must be the first to leave the board if more than 1 Pokemon was KO'd with the same attack. The game just visually organizes it that way.
