    I know the answers, you know the answers, but let's get them into the Compendium so they are official:

    1) Cacturne attacks an Active Aggron EX with 4 Metal Energy cards attached to it. Aggron EX takes 40 damage, right?

    2) Cacturne attacks a Benched Aggron EX with 4 Metal Energy cards attached to it. Aggron EX still takes 40 damage, right?

    Um, I think I'll let you guys handle the math...
    == FEINT ATTACK (Murkrow - Neo: Genesis Expansion, Umbreon - Neo: Discovery Expansion, Houndour - Aquapolis Expansion; others)

    Q. Does Feint Attack go through Metal Energy or not?
    A. Feint Attack normally ignores ANY effect attempting to reduce its damage, even Metal Energy. But, Feint Attack is worded differently on some of the older sets where the "ignoring" part only applies to the Defending Pokemon. On those older cards, Metal Energy does reduce the damage when Feint Attack targets the bench; but on more recent cards, ignoring reduction applies to both Defending and Benched Pokemon.
