    For reference:

    Put damage counters on the Defending Pokémon until it is 50 HP away from being Knocked Out. If you do, your opponent switches the Defending Pokémon with 1 of his or her Benched Pokémon.

    If I am able to place damage counters on the Defending Pokemon, but there's no Benched Pokemon to switch with, how much of the attack can be performed? Would I be able to place damage counters, or would the entire attack fail?

    You do as much as you can until you reach a point that you can't do any more.

    In this case, you place the damage counters.
