  • You cannot activate the effect to Synchro Summon multiple times in the same Chain.[1]
  • You can activate the effect to Synchro Summon during your opponent’s Main Phase 1 or 2. Using it when your opponent wants to end Main Phase 1 does not force them to continue into their Battle Phase.[1]
  • You send the Synchro Material Monsters to the Graveyard when you resolve the effect to Synchro Summon.[1][Notes 1]
  • You must Synchro Summon when the effect resolves, if possible, using Formula Synchron and the faceup monsters are [sic] available to you. If you cannot, your opponent can verify that you have no monsters in your Extra Deck that can be Summoned.[1][Notes 1]
