Question on Dimension Valley

Recommended Posts

Nynja314

Let's say I have a Mew EX with the Versatile ability as my active Pokemon, Pumpkaboo with Night March on the bench, and a Dimension Valley. The dimension valley makes it so Pumpkaboo's attack costs 2 colorless instead of 3. When Mew EX uses Night March with its ability, will the cost go down to 1 colorless?

No, Versatile (and other abilities like it) completely copy the original attack. The reduction of the attack cost is an effect applied directly on the Pokémon with the attack, the attack cost reduction doesn’t apply to the Pokémon copying the attack through an ability or what not unless that Pokémon also meets the condition for reducing the attack cost, which is true in the example you gave.

Another way to put it, is if you used Versatile to copy "Night March" from a Joltik with a Counter Gain attached to it, while you were behind on Prizes, it wouldn't affect Mew-EX's cost.  Versatile copies the attack cost as it is printed on the original Pokémon.  If there is an effect that adds to or reduces the cost of Mew-EX's attacks, that will still apply.  If it an effect only alters the attack cost of the original source Pokémon, Mew-EX/Versatile don't care.
