Recent Errata 5/1/09

Poké-Powers that end your turn are receiving errata to make it clear that you still end your turn if the Poké-Power is canceled, such as with Team Galactic’s Invention G-103 Power Spray (Platinum, 117/127) or by Alakazam’s (Diamond & Pearl—Mysterious Treasures, 2/123) Power Cancel Poké-Power.

Some abilities referring to “Stage 2 Evolved Pokémon” are receiving errata. These cards do not care if the Pokémon is evolved or not, only if it is a Stage 2 Pokémon. So, Stage 2 Pokémon put into play with abilities like Garchomp LV.X’s (Diamond & Pearl—Majestic Dawn, 97/100) Restore attack still count for these abilities.

Unown V (Diamond & Pearl—Legends Awakened, 79/146) The correct card text should read: (Poké-Power) Vacation Once during your turn (before your attack), you may use this power.

Blastoise (Diamond & Pearl—Secret Wonders, 2/132) The correct card text should read: (Poké-Power) Waterlog Once during your turn (before your attack), you may use this power.

Alakazam (Diamond & Pearl—Mysterious Treasures, 2/123) The correct card text should read: Psychic Guard (50) During your opponent’s next turn, any damage done to Alakazam by attacks from your opponent’s Stage 2 Pokémon is reduced by 30 (after applying Weakness and Resistance).

Glalie (Diamond & Pearl—Mysterious Treasures, 25/123) The correct card text should read: (Poké-Body) Craggy Face As long as Glalie is your Active Pokémon, any damage done by attacks from your opponent’s Stage 2 Pokémon is reduced by 20 (after applying Weakness and Resistance).

Staraptor (Diamond & Pearl—Stormfront, 27/100) The correct card text should read: (Poké-Body) Protect Wing As long as Staraptor is your Active Pokémon, any damage done by attacks from your opponent’s Stage 2 Pokémon is reduced by 20 (after applying Weakness and Resistance).
