Remember when this was only played in Gyarados and Regigigas decks?
Wasn’t that also when 2-3 PONT was also considered “a nice idea?”
I’m sorry, a noob like myself cannot image either one of these scenarios but, I do remember when Reshiram was one of the most feared decks and Fire Type ruled the tourneys. :)
at 3:40 I was really weirded out, then I remembered this thread.
AND IGOR TRASH CLAWS FOR A PROFESSOR N! THAT’S REALLY DEVASTATING TURN 1!
Imagine getting one of these ingame. “yes, I think I’ll discard two antidotes to get back that Stealth Rock TM…”
remember when pokemon catcher and this were legal
Still are in the PTCGO Legacy Format… but with the infamous erratum for Pokémon Catcher (adding the coin flip). I’m guessing you’re talking about the craziness when Junk Arm and “No coin flip required” Pokémon Catcher were both legal and… I don’t know if I want to remember that. XP
The original JP print of this card allowed you to search your deck for an *Item* card, not just any Trainer card. The reason for the discrepancy is because Japan introduced the Trainer reclassification system in HGSS, but the international edition waited until BW for some reason – so how was this card played internationally? Were people using it to get Supporters and Stadiums back? They weren’t supposed to be.
During Gen 4, Stadiums and Supporters were classified as separate categories from Trainers entirely, and when Gen 5 came around, this was ruled to only grab Gen 4 Trainers and Gen 5 Items. So functionally the same as Japan, just with way more confusing wording when it was legal alongside Gen 5 cards.
That’s what I would’ve figured, but I couldn’t find anything about an errata/ruling for how this card interacted with Gen 5 Supporters and Stadiums. Thank you!
