My opponent has a Carbink FCO 50 with Safeguard as their Active, as well as another Pokemon (without Safeguard) on the Bench. I use Sharpedo-EX PRC's Hunt attack. Does the switch on my opponent's side happen, or is it blocked by Safeguard? It seems clear that if the Safeguarder is on the Bench and is targeted by Hunt, the attack fizzles. But it's less clear when the Safeguarder is the one that's Active, and the targeted Pokemon does not have a protective effect on it. Edit: there's a ruling in the Compendium EX (under "== HIDDEN POWER / E (Unown-E - EX:Unseen Forces)") that implies that a protective effect on the Active blocks a Gust attack. However, due to the age of this ruling I'm hesitant to apply it to Pokemon as it's played now. --- Ability: Safeguard Prevent all effects of attacks, including damage, done to this Pokémon by your opponent’s Pokémon-EX. [D][C] Hunt: Switch 1 of your opponent’s Benched Pokémon with his or her Active Pokémon. This attack does 30 damage to the new Active Pokémon.
