Pokémon Power Doubles
Rolling doubles allows a player to do one of two options: roll again as normal, or activate a Pokémon Power based on the dice. If the power is activated, the player's turn ends. These powers cannot be used if the player rolled doubles in order to get out of jail.
|Dice result||Pokémon Power||Effect|
|Double 1s||"Teleport like Hoppip and go anywhere."||The player can go directly to any space, except Jail. A player that passes GO using this power collects 200.|
|Double 2s||"Absorb like Bellossom and collect 200 from the Bank."||The player collects 200 from the Bank.|
|Double 3s||"Use Leech Seed like Skiploom and collect 50 from each player."||The player collects 50 from each player.|
|Double 4s||"Meet Professor Elm"||The player draws a Professor Elm card.|
|Double 5s||"Fight in a Trainer Battle"||The player draws an Ash Battle card.|
|Double 6s||"Attack to control one of another player’s Pokémon spaces:"||The player selects a Pokémon that an opposing player owns that is not part of a color-group. Each player rolls both dice. The player who rolls the higher number takes (or keeps) control of the lot. In the event of a tie, both players roll again. Note: the player can't select a "Badge" or "Meet" space.|
