    My opponent uses Gallade's Sonic Blade attack on my Active Pokemon (successively, of course), forcing me to switch Pokemon. Can I choose a Benched Pokemon with Holon WP+Water attached and just stop the switch or can I not since the game knows it won't have any effect? Thanks in advance!

    As with Whirlwind and the rest, "you opponent switches" means they get to choose. So, the case where WP would stop the switch is where it and a basic water energy are attached to a lone benched Pokemon. The counters are still placed, but the switch doesn't happen.
