    == BRING DOWN (Gardevoir LV.X - DP:Secret Wonders)

    Q. What happens if Gardevoir LV.X uses "Bring Down", but the lowest HP Pokemon is protected by some effect like Holon Energy WP?
    A. The Pokemon with Holon Energy WP attached can still be attacked with Bring Down, but it will not get Knocked Out because the protection of Holon Energy WP prevents all effects (including automatic KO) except damage done to that Pokemon. (Jan 31, 2008 PUI Rules Team)

    For further clarification, does Bring Down then go to the next lowest HP Pokemon or does the attack stop with the lowest HP Pokemon with the Holon WP protection?

    The attack targets the Pokemon with Holon Energy WP attached and the attack actually happens. The effects are prevented, so the Pokemon is not KO'd and your turn is over.
