Tips, Related Cards, Rulings

DARK Machine Support

Currently these are the Level 6 DARK Machine-type monsters that you can opt to Special summon with Psychic Shockwave. But take note, B.E.S Big core’s effect cannot be activated as it was not Normal summoned, and Trifortressops was not Special summoned properly, therefore its immunity to card effects will not be activated.

Future Support

This card is actually tailored just for summoning Jinzo but currently this monster is not available to players, therefore listed as Future Support.

The npc used mirror wall while I had psychic shockwave face down for more than one turn and I had 2 spell cards in hand at the time. For some odd reason psychic shockwave didn't activate. Someone please explain why it didn't activate?

Did you have a lvl 6 Dark machine left in your deck? If not, then it may can't be activated(like draw cards, when not enough cards left)???

mirror wall is activated in the damage step; only ATK/DEF affecting effects can be activated in the damage step.
Psychicshockwave bug
Psychic shockwave does not work.

It was down on the field already for a turn.

Jinzo in my deck.

Spells in my hand to discard 1.

Opponent activates trap.

I cant activate psychic shockwave.

Its bugged unless only normal trap/spells can be discarded and not counter trap/quickplay spells.

But counnter trap quickplay spells should work too as it doesnt say normal trap/normal spells.

Anyone managed to use psychic shockwave?

That explains it. It isn't a bug. Psychic Shockwave cannot be activated in response to Rising Energy because that trap probably was activated during the damage step. Only cards that change ATK or DEF can be activated at that time, and Psychic Shockwave isn't one of them. Psychic Shockwave also cannot be activated in response to Gemini counter because only Counter Traps can respond to Counter Traps

There is an option that allows you to change when you can activate traps. Change it to on and you will be able to activate it at any time
How often does the event happen? Just started playing duel links on the last day of the event last week and unfortunately couldn't score any.

What sucks is that I would've actually gotten then last month if those cocksuckers didn't up ranked victory accumulation so that it didn't reset
I have only 2 :(
Why can't I ever get the chance to activate this card when my opponent activates a trap card even when spell cards are in my hand and jinzo is in my deck?
Why is this not in the new event and why didnt i get a copy during the first two events

You know he "blows out everyone's back"
Though in the text "If your opponent activate trap" this card also negate the activation of trap card
This card is garbage with the stuff we have right now. At best, 2300 atk power monster, that's it? Who even uses the cards that this card has targets for anyway? Garbage and useless. Not UR material.

It’s meant for Jinzo who isn’t in the game yet, for some reason.

I mean good thing it isn't UR then.
This card is an indication that we get Jinzo soon?

Not soon considering the amount of time they took to release Yugi Muto/Mokuba and that Arkana haven't been released yet, but we will get one copy by unlocking Espa Roba in the future like we got Lava Golem through Marik starter deck
