    WP Energy States:
    "If the Pokemon Holon Energy WP is attached to also has a basic :water: energy card attached to it, prevent all effects of attacks, excluding damage, done to that pokemon by your opponent's attacks"

    Empoleon states:
    "Choose one of your opoonent's Pokemon, this attack does 40 damage to that Pokemon (Do not apply weakness and resistance for benched Pokemon)"

    Empoleon Lv. X states:
    "Choose one of your opponent's Pokemon, this attack does 80 damage to that pokemon (Do not apply weakness and resistance for benched Pokemon)"


    Question is can WP energy protect a Pokemon from attacks that target such as Ice Blade, Hydro Impact or even Octillery's Aqua Linier or Rayquaza EX Delta's Special Circuit?
    Does the Pokemon remain damaged or does WP energy prevent it because it's being targeted

    No. Choosing a Pokemon is not an effect of the attack. It's one of the attack steps from the rule book ("Make any choices that have to be made").
    All that is being done to the Pokemon is damage, There are no effects for Holon WP to block.
