I'm hoping for a clarification of this response: http://pokegym.net/forums/showthread.php?t=70924 My understanding of the scenario is that there are two Pokemon in play tied for lowest remaining HP. One of them has effects blocked with Unown G. One player announces an attack of Bring Down. According to the response linked above, if the attacking player then chooses to attack the protected Pokemon, "nothing happens." My thinking is that since you are not allowed to make an attack when it is publicly known beforehand that it will have no effect, the player who has announced the attack should be forced to knock out the other Pokemon. Why is this not the case? Thank you in advance.
