Brilliant Stars Empolion Ability

How do I activate Empolion's Ability?

Its ability "Emergency surfacing" reads "Once during your turn, if this pokemon is in your discard pile and you have no cards in your hand, you may put this pokemon on your Bench. If you do, draw three cards."

I cant seem to activate this ability. Is anyone else able to? Please tell me how.

    How did you misspell the name twice while looking at it?

    Anyway, when you have a free spot on your bench and no cards in your hand, open your discard pile and click the card.

    yea turns out the format on mobile tricked me into thinking that I was able to have 6 pokemon on bench when the max is 5. I tried it again and it works.
