Card text

All prints
AceSpec.png You can't have more than 1 ACE SPEC card in your deck.
You can play only one Supporter card each turn. When you play this card, put it next to your Active Pokémon. When your turn ends, discard this card.
Each player shuffles his or her hand into his or her deck, and you and your opponent play a game of "Rock-Paper-Scissors." The player who wins draws up to 6 cards. The player who loses draws up to 3 cards. (You draw your cards first.)
 
Do Nothing  
At the beginning of your turn, flip a coin. If heads, you can do nothing during your turn. If tails, your opponent can do nothing during his or her next turn.


Trivia

This card was the first since Misty's Duel from Gym Heroes to feature the mechanic of playing Rock, Paper, Scissors. However, unlike Misty's Duel, which allowed players to choose to flip a coin instead, it was ruled that playing Rock-Paper-Scissors is mandatory on Team Galactic's Wager - flipping a coin or a similar action is not an option. Those who opt not to play the card under normal rules are instead advised to use special side cards meant solely for the purpose.

Origin

This card depicts both a male and female Galactic Grunt, a Trainer class in the Pokémon games.
