    Im just wondering if darkrai gxs dead end gx attack bypass hoopa ability.
    From my understanding this attack is an effect and the ability should block it.

    OK, so Dead End GX looks at the Defending Pokemon and checks to see if it is affected by a Special Condition.
    If it is, then an effect is applied that Knocks it Out.

    Scoundrel Guard prevents all attack effects from Pokemon GX, which Darkrai GX is.

    Yes, you are correct. It is an effect and would be blocked.
