    Alright, so it's already been established that Pachirisu's Smash Short does not discard Unown G attached to a Pokemon nor does it get to look at the opponent's hand in order to discard, but is it possible to clarify the other interactions between the two cards?

    I take it that Smash Short would still get the attack bonus of 40 since there is a tool attached to the Defending Pokemon, and it is simply a damage calculation and not an effect. Correct?

    Does Pachirisu not look at the oppenent's hand because it prevents effects of attacks or because there is effectively no such thing as a Pokemon Tool named Unown G while in your hand? For example, what would happen if Smash Short was used when Unown E [MT] was attached?

    It would do 40.

    If it were used with an Unown E attached, it would be discarded and the hand would be looked at.
    No Tool would be discarded from the hand because Unown E is not a tool in the hand.
