Hi I just lost my GAC match because of my JMK mirror failing. This because my cat was 371 speed and my opponent CAT was 320 speed, so obviously my opponent CAT went first and killed mine... Yes, it was like that.
So, apparently datacrons TM gain (and removal) can bypass JMK leadership that prevents TM manipulation. Furthermore, it also bypasses confusion and Padme lead(which prevents allies' TM manipulation). I mean, it's OK if this happens, but description on datacrons should say "this TM gain can't be prevented" as well as "this TM removal can't be resisted". I don't like it bypassing JMK or Padme leader abilities, but if it's going that way, the game should at least specify it.
I did several battles in squad arena against slower CATs and same datacrons. With our without speed up my cat goes second. The only times my cat went first were when i targeted opponent CAT with jmk and ayla and og ahsoka assisted(removing opponent CAT TM)
