Help Are there any cards that "protect" stadiums?


Aspiring Trainer
I am looking to "protect" a Prism Star stadium. As it is a Prism Star card, it's not recoverable with Lusamine, Dowsing Machine, etc. Are there any cards that "protect" stadiums either from the likes of Field Blower, Faba, etc. and/or from a new stadium that is played?

Prism Stars are NOT standard anymore. If it was, assuming you want to look within BW-CRE cards only, then Shadow Rider Calyrex V could prosper by its first attack, Shadow Mist, which blocks stadiums and special energy from being played by your foe.

BUT now, you cannot fully protect a prism star stadium w/o the abilities Garbotoxin or Power of Alchemy on top.

Field Blower Faba, among other items and supporters, may not work anyway on Prism Star stadiums(
According to prism star stadium text:

"Whenever any player plays an Item or Supporter card from their hand, prevent all effects of that card done to this Stadium card."
), but why do you need ability blockers for full prism star stadium protection?

^ The answer?

^ A pokemon with an ability that can remove your prism stadium to the lost zone on Bench entry.

What is its name again?

^ Pumpkaboo(EVS 076/203)

^ Oh?

^ No Garbodor and tool nor Alolan Muk w/ basic ability-blockers?

^ To the Lost Zone of the past, Prism Star!

Also, Regice [CES] and Palkia [CEL], when in the Active Spot, have an ability that prevents the opponent from playing Stadium cards.

not many Pokemon can do this. Handsomep mentioned Regice (CES) and Palkia (CEL). But they can only do it if they are in the active.

If you go Expanded, there's a Ninetales that can do it--can't remember the set, but it can be on the Bench and you're set.

I know this was attempted when Sableye (DEX) was legal. Kept Black Market PS in play, Ninetales protected it. Combine with Life Dew, it was an annoying concept. but having a Prism Star anything be the main focus of the deck, you're looking at A TON of risk involved and have to cover a lot of bases.

A Stadium card stays in play when you play it. Only one Stadium card can be in play at a time—if a new one comes into play, discard the old one and end its effects. You can't play a Stadium card if a card with the same name is already in play. You can play only one Stadium card each turn.
