Client: 2.80.0.5277
Card: Cincinno
Card Number: Shining fates #167, Sword and Shield #147, Sword and shield Black star promo #9
Expected Action: Cinccino can use the ability "make do" to discard a card when you don't have any cards to draw
Actual Action: at 0 cards in your deck, cinccino ability is not usable
Steps to Reproduce: Get to 0 cards in your deck and try to use the ability

additional information: swampert (celestial storm #35) which has a very similar ability can still use it's ability power draw at 0 cards in deck, this allows you to discard lileep (plasma blast #3) so you never deck out as long as you can keep using the ability afterwards, although worded different there is no indication that cincinno's ability shouldn't work exactly like swampert's, I couldn't test this interaction with zoroark's GX trade or galarian articuno's reconstitute

Not a bug. The fact that the abilities are worded differently is the key here. Look at the placement of the phrase "Once during your turn, you may..." in both abilities.

 

Swampert's (CES) Power Draw ability:

Quote

Once during your turn (before your attack), you may discard a card from your hand. If you do, draw 3 cards.

 Cincinno's (SSH) Make Do ability:

Quote

You must discard a card from your hand in order to use this Ability. Once during your turn, you may draw 2 cards.

 

Swampert's ability discards the card. 

 

Cincinno's ability draws 2 cards. Since you have no cards in deck, you cannot Make Do.
