    If I knockout the defending Pokemon using Donphan's Rapid Spin attack, should the sequence of play be:

    1) My opponent brings up an active Pokemon ("switching" with the knocked out Pokemon), then I switch Donphan with a benched Pokemon (if possible).

    or

    2) The knocked out Pokemon cannot be switched, so I switch Donphan (if possible) completing the attack then my opponent brings up a new active Pokemon.

    Thanks.

    The KO'd Pokemon can't be switched, only discarded at the proper time. Switch Donphan, if possible, then your opponent brings up a new active (if possible) to complete the resolution of the attack.
