The text for the Spell card Polymerization (Poly)

states:Send Fusion Material Monsters that are listed on a Fusion

Monster Card from your hand or your side of the field to the

Graveyard, and Special Summon that Fusion Monster from your Fusion


* Since the printing of this card, the name for the "Fusion

Deck" has been changed to the "Extra Deck" and will be refered to

as the "Extra Deck" for the remainder of this answer.

Poly is a special Spell card that lets you Special Summon

a specific type of monster card known as a "Fusion Monster". Fusion

Monsters can be identified by their card's purple backing. When a

Fusion Monster is Special Summoned from the Extra Deck using this

card, it's referred to as a "Fusion Summon". (Examples of other

specific types of Special Summons include "Synchro Summons" and

"Ritual Summons".)

Now to activate

Poly, these three

conditions must be true:

  • You have Poly in

    your hand or face-down in your Spell/ Trap card zone

  • The Fusion Monster you are trying to Fusion Summon is in your

    Extra Deck

  • The monsters listed on the Fusion Monster are in your hand and/

    or on the field. Some can be in the hand while others are on the

    field, all of them can be on the field, or all can be in your hand

    - any combination is fine.

If these three statements are true, you have the green light to

go ahead an activate

"mso-bidi-font-style: normal">Poly. First, activate the Spell.

Second, select a Fusion Monster from your Extra Deck you wish to

summon. Third, send the appropriate monsters listed on the Fusion

Monster to the Graveyard. And finally place your Fusion Monster on

your field in face-up attack or defense position.

Just remember these other important facts about Fusion


  • Fusion Monsters only go in the separate Extra Deck and

    never go into your at

    least 40 card deck you draw from. If a Fusion Monster is supposed

    to be returned to the owner's hand or deck due to an effect, it is

    returned to your Extra Deck.

  • The Extra Deck can only hold a maximum of 15 cards. This can be

    any combination of Fusion and Synchro Monsters, but their total

    must be less than or equal to 15.

  • If there are cards on the field like

    "mso-bidi-font-style: normal">Macros Cosmos that require cards

    to be removed from play instead of being sent to the Graveyard, you

    can still use Poly. The

    only difference is that the monster used for the fusion are removed

    from play.
