Rule Changes in Pokemon Black & White

As usual with a new generation, there are a few changes to the rules. Here's a quick summary:

1) For official events, we're up to HGSS cards onwards only.

2) Supporter (now renamed Support) and Stadium cards now come under Trainer cards, and trainer cards can be played on turn 1. They now must be discarded immediately after use, rather than at the end of a player's turn.

3) A slight change to the sequence after a Pokemon is knocked out. The player doing the knocking out now takes a prize card BEFORE the player with the knocked out Pokemon replaces the knocked out Pokemon with a new one.

What changes will this make? Let us know your thoughts in the guestbook.
