How does eDenny and Kraye's spell 'Pursuit' interact with non-standard advancing spells such as Velocity or Energize?

Pursuit reads ' Target enemy model/unit advances during it's activation, immediately after ending this movement, one model in it's battlegroup and control area can make a full advance'

Velocity and Energize read 'This model can spend (blah blah) to advance up to (distance) immediately.

So if a model with Pursuit on it casts energize or velocity to advance, can a Battlegroup model move? And then, if that model makes a full advance or charge or something, can a battlegroup model move AGAIN?

And if there's no limitations on it triggering again, then it can trigger multiple times.

(that's RAW, RAI may be a different matter)

Velocity will trigger pursuit since the spell causes the model to advance. Movement will also trigger pursuit since it is also an advance.

Energizer will only trigger pursuit if the spell caster (Nemo) moves to advance. However warjacks moving during the spell, nemo's activation will not trigger pursuit. Normal movement will again trigger pursuit.

I think pursuit can only trigger once, since the target can only activate once. I don't think velocity and energize triggers it since it's not the model's activation.

Prime MK II page 46:
"The term normal movement refers to the movement a
model makes during the movement portion of its activation.
Advancing refers to any movement a model intentionally
makes, not to any movement caused by other effects such
as being pushed or being slammed."

"Pursuit - If target enemy model/unit advances during its activation, immediately after ending this movement one model in this modelʼs battlegroup that is in its control area can make a full advance."
