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 #150 Mewtwo and go anywhere." The player can go directly to any space, except Jail. A player that passes GO using this power collects PokémonDollar.png200.
Double 2s "Rest like #35 Clefairy and collect PokémonDollar.png200 from the Bank." The player collects PokémonDollar.png200 from the Bank.
Double 3s "Use Leech Seed like #01 Bulbasaur and collect PokémonDollar.png50 from each player." The player collects PokémonDollar.png50 from each player.

Double 6s "Attack to control one of another player’s gym lots:" 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.
