Flip Summon (Japanese: 反 ( はん ) 転 ( てん ) 召 ( しょう ) 喚 ( かん ) Hanten Shōkan "Reverse Summon") is a way to Summon monsters. It can only be performed when the game state is open during your Main Phase. You simply flip a face-down monster manually into face-up Attack Position. A monster is considered to be not on the Field during the Flip Summon's Summon negation window. Flip Summon is simultaneously regarded as both a Summon and Battle position change.
A face-down monster flipped into face-up Attack Position by a card effect such as "
Book of Taiyou" or " Ancient Forest" is not considered a Flip Summon. Flip Summon does not take up your Normal Summon/ Set for the turn.
You cannot Flip Summon a monster at the same turn it was
Summoned, Normal Set, declared an attack (even if the attack was negated or canceled), or its battle position was changed manually that turn.
