Pendulum summon and Mechanics

Post by genexwrecker on Tue Jan 13, 2015 10:58 pm

Keep in mind that this is not a question it is an article.

Pendulum cards are The new monster made for gen 5 of the trading card game. The numbers by the red and blue crystals are the pendulum scales. These cards are always monsters except while in a pendulum zone. You can activate them from your hand in either of the 2 pendulum zones as a spellcard. They can be dark bribed when activated this way as it is treated as activating a spell card.

Once per turn if you have 2 cards in your pendulum zones you can pendulum summon from your hand or face up in the extra deck any number of monsters with levels between the 2 scales. This is counted and treated as 1 summon. If the summon is negated all of the pendulum summoned monsters will go to the grave unless stated otherwise by card effects. 

Pendulum monsters will always go to the extra deck face up if they would be sent from the field to the graveyard. Cards like Darklaw and fissure override this since card effects overtake game mechanics an will banish them instead. 

Pendulum monsters have 2 effects. Their pendulum effect(The effect in the upper most box between the 2 crystals) and their monster effect. The pendulum effect can only be used while it is in the pendulum zone. The monster effect can only be used while it is not in the pendulum zone. Pendulum monsters with no effect such as Qlihport Scout are normal monsters and pendulum monsters. They can be searched by summoner's art. 

Rulings for pendulums.

1.) A pendulum summon is treated as 1 summon of multiple monsters(If just 1 is summoned it is just 1 being summoned). As such cards like thunder king raioh cannot be activatd to negate the summon(of more than 1). Cards like black horn of heaven and solemn warning can be used to negate the entire summon of all the monsters. If bottomless trap hole is activated all of the pendulum summoned monsters with 1500 or more atk will be destroyd and banished.

2.) If they would be used as synchro, or fusion material they will be sent to the extra deck face up. If they are used as Xyz material They will be sent to the grave since Xyz materials are not on the field.

3.) If you use cursed seal of the forbidden spell on the activation of a pendulum card that card cannot be activated in the pendulum zone for the rest of the duel. It can still be used in any other way side from that though.(The card that had its activation negated is sent to the graveyard since it was not on the field.)

4.) If you take control of a pendulum monster ant it would be sent from the field to the grave it returns to the original owner's extra deck face up. 

5.) Like the field spell Zone Pendulum zones are not a part of your spell/trap zones. 

6.) Pendulums in the pendulum zones are continuous cards they must remain face up on the field to properly resolve their activated effects.(If qliphort tool is activaetd paying 800 and mst is chained then you will not search a "Qli" monster).


Feel free to ask any questions you may have.

 1) Thunder King Rai-Oh and Black Horn had the Same Text for long time even After PSCT.





 But From Pemium Gold Rai-Oh is now:



"Neither player can add cards from their Deck to their hand except by drawing them. During either player's turn, when your opponent would Special Summon exactly 1 monster: You can send this face-up card to theGraveyardnegate the Special Summon, and if you do, destroy it."


BUT Black Remained the same!


So it is incorrect say "A pendulum summon is treated as 1 summon of multiple monsters. As such cards like thunder king raioh cannot be activatd to negate the summon. " Because you can Exactly P. Summon only 1 monster and if you do, Rai-Oh can Negate it. .-.

Just adapt your Article to the PSCT of Rai-Oh. because konami can reprint either him or Black horn to have both the same text again.

Because "A Monster" means minimum 1. but it doesn't  indicate a Maximum number. 

2) If they are on the field and are used as F. or S. Materials (because you can Fusion and Synchro with card in Hands) you must leave it clear it.

When you correct people acutally do so correctly. 

Black horn and thunder king do not share the same psct and mean entirely different things.

Secondly as stated earlier in the article they will go to the extra deck if they would be sent from the field to the grave. As being stated as such it can be expected and known that fusing them from the hand or used for a synchro summon from the hand will not result in being returned to the extra deck face up. 

I do not repeat everything for each time I mention mechanics. The point of an article is to give them the knowledge that they do need and from that knowledge they can solve most of their own questions. An article is not meant to fully teach but to help the user learn. Part of the learning process is problem solving with the information given as such in my post. I cannot give out every example in here and you will treat it as such.

If you write an Article you must repeat the mechanics every time you have to.
Also your phrase is still uncorrect, Rai Oh cannot negate it not because it is multiple summon monsters, because a Pendulum can summo only 1 monster LOL
but because he new errrata says exactly 1 monster. so don't spam pharases. at least say if you attempt to summon 2 or more rai-oh cannot tribute himself.

This is also clearly not the right place to post an article. In other words: you can't post an article unless you have permission to do so.

just going to point this out. 

asisde from the game mechanics secton a ruling questions subforum is the most appropriate place to post a ruling article or guide on any forum. Wether the forum rules state so or not it is the most viable area for it to be posted.

I'll move this to a more suitable forum.

EDIT: We're removing articles forum, in case you're wondering why I didn't put there. We do, and strong, believe that Articles aren't a much of a help nowadays in this meta, hence why we prefer or tend to have open discussions about everything. It's easier this way, at least its how we view things.

I will lock this and write a more accurate one because as you said we are starting from 0 the Articles. So We can HIde the older forum of articles, and create a new sub forum "Yugioh AND Dueling Network Basic Knowlege" because it is a manual system. as I did in another academy centuries ago http://www.foroygocastellano.com/f3-class-room .

Reply even I closed it.

This is not the appropriate topic to discuss that matter.
