    i was playing against a bannete deck. she used ghost head with lake boundary in play. she said she could ko my gallade in 1 hit by usin ghost head. she did 70 to herself and 140 to me. i said that it was only 70 beccause the card says damage counters. since i was playing the gym leader my authority was kinda less than hers. in the end i barely won. but my point is

    aren't damage counters considered effects not damage.
    arent damage counter not effected by weakness and resistance

    You are correct. Popular attacks that deal damage counters are Banette's Ghost Head, Dusknoir's Hard Feelings and Gallade's Sonic Blade. These counters are put on the Pokemon as an EFFECT OF AN ATTACK, not as Damage.
