    Would an attack like Swift get around the effects of Lucario Lv.X's :ppowr:? Flygon δ is the Pokemon using Swift, just to be clear. Also, is Swift subject to Drake's Stadium? My guess on the Drake's Stadium would be no since is not an effect ON the defending Pokemon. I would just like clarification. Thanks a lot, and if you know any situations where Swift won't do anything or is altered, please tell me. I appreciate your help!

    Stance is an effect on the Defending Pokemon, and ignored by attacks like Swift and Feint Attack.

    Drake's Stadium applies its effect to all Pokemon in play - Swift ignores it when the effect is on the Defending Pokemon.

    In general, Swift ignores things that stop damage. If an effect prevents the attack itself (Holon Circle, Sand Attack, etc), Swift doesn't even get started. (This can probably discussed at length more in the strategy section with feedback and discussion from your fellow players.)
