    Bronzong's Cursed Alloy and Pain Amplifier:

    Does resistance reduce/stop damage via Cursed Alloy?

    Does Pain amplifier damage resistant pokemon on bench?

    in general:

    Does weakness and resistance come into play for bench pokemon unless attack specifically states "do not apply weak/resis"?

    Both Cursed Alloy and Pain Amplifier "place damage counters".
    That is not the same as doing damage and so neither are affected by Weakness or Resistance.

    Aside from that, W&R never apply to the bench.
