Question for Pokemon Trading Card Game

My Lugia Legend's pokepower says:"once during your turn when you put LL into play you may..." He argues I can only use that power when LL comes out into the bench. However, the rules state that a Pokemon is "in play" when it's on the table." If I skip using the power when I put LL in the bench...can I still use the pokepower when I make it an active Pokemon? While active it is still in-play? Thank you,. and get

This is my opinion:

As you stated "in play" means on the table. So a benched Pokemon is already "in play" therefor making him active can't be considered putting him "in play". That power is only usable on the turn you play him from your hand. P.S. If you want to use the power more than once you need a card that allows you to return him to your hand.
