    With another Scyther and its Bug Energy on the field, Kenji wondered if his opponent would do anything else...

    (Your opponents can concede to you, and you can concede to them. If they concede to you, it counts as a win for you.)

    (Actually, I'm alluding to Mandy's current turn:
    Is that enough? Or does she do anything else?)

    (This is her current turn--she is considering conceding, as her setup at the moment isn't very good.)

    (Ah, okay. Should've made that clearer tho.

    And now to invoke that IC...)

    At this point, Ginchiyo decided to come back inside after minding her own business outside and watched the duel from the sidelines. Not that her human would mind that as long as she behaved herself. "Well?" said human asked his opponent. Seems like he's waiting for whatever might happen next.

    Mandy sighed--there was no chance she could win. "I concede the match you you...you really know how to make an early deck go toe to toe with the latest set."

    "...wait, what?" Kenji stammered. To be honest, considering his level of proficiency with TCG matches (i.e. relatively newbie), Mandy's compliment was too much to take in. Plus, it's not like he made the deck himself from scratch or anything, right?

    "Conceding the match is legal under PTCGA rules." the referee assures you. "The match will be reflected as a no contest tie on both players' records."

    "But how about Vanessa's challenge?" the redhead asked in regards of this:
    And to be honest, PTCGA legalities were the least concern to him. At least, for now.

    About then, Vanessa hurried over to see what was going on. After hearing the referee's explanation, she thought for a moment, then called over the two other club members currently present to discuss what to do about a conceded match.

    "...welp, okay."

    Looking around, Kenji tried to see if Vicky was okay... but he couldn't find the girl and her Pawniard anywhere. Not even Ginchiyo's X-ray sight could find them. Were the duo, perhaps, already gone?

    Kenji decided to look up about the banned cards in TCG duels while waiting for the final verdict of this particular match. Either an article or a video would be fine.

    (Mainly which cards are banned and why they're banned in the first place.)

    (The Six Spirits have a series for that--going over why cards might be banned, and notable bans)

    While perusing the Six Spirits TCG playlists on MyTube, one playlist stood out--"Why it's Banned: A Guide for Competitive Players". The playlist itself went over different reasons the PTCG bannd cards, and notable examples of each one--including the rare few that were also banned in casual play.

    As he's watching the videos in the playlist one by one, Kenji eventually got to a particular case that he'd experienced the other day: Sylveon the Singer of Light's Curly Ribbon.
    So basically some cards are edited and some others are outright banned, huh?

    The difference, Serena explains, is how easy an errata would be to implement. If the rest of the card's info is decent. then just errata the card, if they can't balance or fix the card with an errata, it is banned or restricted. Opponent manipulation is one of those offenses the PTCGA takes seriously.

    (Quick question: are there any examples of the outright banned cards? Like, actual examples?)
