Just a question.
My opponent has an active pokčmon with 10HP remained, plus a Focus Band attached to it.

I attack for 10 damages, plus the pokemon of my opponenet get poisoned.

My oppnent flips a coin for the Focus Band, and it heads.

What happen??
1. The pokčmon in defence is KOed due to the damage caused by the poison.
2. The pokčmon in defence survives, bacause the focus band triggers later

The defender is KOed

The Focus Band flip is at the end of the turn. Poison comes between turns. So the flip saves the defender, only to faint between turns.

Furthermore, had attack only done poison, it still would have gone past focus band, because focus band only activates when the attack during your opponent's turn knocks out your Pokemon.
