    In the compendium there is a ruling on drag off vs. holon WP if the WP is attached to a benched pokemon. The ruling states that if a Feraligatr delta is active tries to use dragoff it cannot target a benched pokemon with WP and a water energy attached. My question is if a WP and water are attached to an active pokemon can feraligatr drag off a benched pokemon? Following the logic of the previous ruling it should not be able to since benching the active pokemon would be an effect of an attack. Is this correct?

    You are correct, WP+W prevents you from moving the active as an effect of an attack.

    Also, per recent rulings on Bring Down, that ruling needs to be updated.
    The Benched Pokemon could be targeted, but then the effect would fail.
