Lure Ball Unusable


Recommended Posts

The Lure Ball item from Celestial Storm was unusable today in the Standard Format. It just sat there and I couldn't use it. Unfortunately no screenshot but definitely not normal.

You had any Evolution pokémon in Discard?

 

Generally speaking, Trainers can't be used for no effect. This means as you (and your opponent) can check discard whenever you want, you can know what cards are there. If no Evolution pokémon, then you can't use the Lure ball.

 

Would be different for Draw pile. Although you can check it to search (like Ultra ball does) and know what is there, you theoretically are searching blind in advance so you can always use a trainer and become in no effect because conditions are not met (like Trainers mail if no valid cards or Ultra ball if no pokémon).

Hello Chasista, 

 

Thank you for helping out P250. That's a great hint!
