Does evolving a Pokemon remove damage?
1. Damage counters always stay when you evolve unless there’s a Poke Power/Poke Body that lets you. Special Conditions and all other effects are removed when you evolve, level up, go to the Bench, or go to the hand. Damage counters are also removed when the Pokemon card goes back to your hand.
What happens to a poisoned Pokemon?

Can you retreat more than once per turn?
