    Hi! I got a question about old Defender and self damaging attacks (Some Wobuffet, Torterra Lv X, another kamikazes Pokemon :lol:)

    The self damage is reduced? Note that Defender isn't reedited in newer sets, then i think its text is played like the cards say:

    Attach Defender to 1 of your Pokemon. At the end of your opponent's next turn, discard Defender. Damage done to that Pokemon by attacks is reduced by 20 (after applying Weakness and Resistance.)

    Thanks! :smile:

    Unless and until it is reprinted with updated text, you are correct. It protects against self damage.
