This card is banned from Harmony, Core, and Odyssey Block format competitive play (no copies of this card be included in a deck) as-of April 4th, 2019: "The card combination of Berry Punch & Orange Swirl, Drinking Buddies and Belly Flop has been an issue for many players, as it is a source of incredibly efficient removal. The interaction between these two cards usually result in two of a player’s most relevant and powerful Friends being turned against them and subsequently removed for minimal investment by the opponent. Between these two cards, Belly Flop is the least problematic of the two - there are many other ways in Pink to retire or otherwise remove a “stolen” Friend. Taking control is also one of the best ways to address an opponent’s Friend if there are powerful protective abilities in play and while there are other effects that take control of Friends, none are as efficient or as repeatable as Berry Punch & Orange Swirl. To remove one of the more severe negative play experiences, Berry Punch & Orange Swirl, Drinking Buddies is banned in the Harmony, Core and Odyssey block formats."
