Should Boss’s Orders be removed

Options

I was just minding my business and playing a battle, and I was winning extremely, but then he uses Boss’s Orders to switch my Pokémon and kills it and wins.

    I think so, not because its overpowered but because I think we should have a meta-game without it. Many of the cards that are coming out, are really pushing for setup games. However, Boss's Order negates those setups or you're pushing for a lot of redundancy such as double bib/bax benched in the Chien-Pao deck.

    Besides it really changes the game, I would have even won with that card out of the way.

    No, boss's orders is a good card that provides a "gusting" effect that has been around since the very beginning of the game. Cards like this make the game more interesting so that it is not just attacking into the active over and over and over. The threat that an opponent might have a Boss's orders in their deck prompts people to play the game more creatively and carefully, not just benching Lumineons and Rotoms all over the place.

    You could still use switch and that feels more fair

    Boss's Orders is a good card, just because it messed up your chances of winning doesn't mean that it should be removed. The card has been a part of Pokémon for years, you should never assume that your going to win just because of the cards you had in your previous turn. It's like poker to a large part, the other player (or players with poker), may have the better hand. You just got to know when to hold 'em and know when to fold 'em, in other words.
