How do you use the Yu-Gi-Oh card Polymerization?
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

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
- 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
