Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Client: 2.71.0.4810
Card: Zacian V
Card Number: Sword and Shield #138
Expected Action:  Brave Blade: During your next turn this Pokemon can't attack
Actual Action:  Under some conditions you can attack two turns in a row
Steps to Reproduce: Using a Keldeo EX with float stone attached, use Rush In, then retreat to effectively swap Zacian V out and then back into active position.  This allows Zacian V to attack on back to back turns.

If you switch a Pokemon to the bank, these effects lose their effect.
So it is not a bug but a normal game mechanic.

Hi Trainer CanadianLynx,

I have changed the title of your thread to allow it to be more descriptive as per our title standards.

And thank you Trainer Loof6 for your answer and helping your fellow trainers.

I had the same question, but I just checked the Pokemon rules and was surprised to see that this is legal.  I just want to say that this rule is dumb and makes cards like Zacian V broken.

"During your next turn this Pokemon can't attack" seems pretty self explanatory....?  So if you have any Pokemon that has a mechanic to not attack two turns in a row but you bench it and bring it out in the same turn through a cheeky mechanic it disregards the text printed on the card?

In short, yes.

In slightly-less-short, effects on a particular Pokemon are removed when that Pokemon switches to the Bench. "During your next turn, this Pokemon can't attack" is one such effect, so it is removed, and it's one of the reasons why Keldeo-EX with a Float Stone is a strong combo. If you play the main series video games at all, you may know that stat boosts and drops are reset when a Pokemon is switched out. This is the TCG's version of that.

 

This also goes the other way–If your opponent used an attack that increases damage on their next turn (e.g. Serperior FCO's Coil or Sylveon FFI's Echoed Voice), you can force them to switch out (with items such as Escape Rope or abilities such as Phione CEC's) to remove their bonuses.

Yeah, but there's really no way to retreat a Pokemon at the start of a turn and then bring them back out in the games. This type of mechanic bloats this card game beyond belief. Matches are taking longer and longer to play because of the constant switching and card manipulation.

 

In a lot of ways, it's becoming less about going after weaknesses. Instead, it's about exploiting specific Pokemon for abilities and the laundry list of cards that impart full hand resets. But I digress.
