Wait (TFG)

From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Jump to: navigation, search

Wait is a pseudo-Special Condition in the Pokémon Trading Figure Game introduced in the Next Quest expansion.

Pokémon with Wait cannot move or attack during the next player's turn. If the next player is not the owner of the figure with Wait, it has no effect. Pokémon with Wait still block opponent's Pokémon from moving. It is similar to flinching in the core series Pokémon games.

Despite being similar to a Special Condition, it is not one. Unlike Special Conditions, it does not have a marker. Similarly, while Full Heal removes all Special Conditions from one Pokémon, it does not remove Wait.
