Is the Amazing Destruction (Yveltal) knock out an effect or part of the attack?

1 Answer 1


Shining Fates Amazing Rare Yveltal has the following attack text:

Amazing Destruction

Your opponent’s Active Pokémon is Knocked Out.

That is an attack, and the effect of that attack is that the opponent’s Pokémon is knocked out. A Pokémon that was protected from the effects of attacks would be protected from that; it is not dealing damage.

  • So a card like Big Parasol would block it I assume?

  • Correct. Big Parasol would block it from doing anything if it were on the active Pokémon.

  • I wonder if Hero's medal applies here. The card mentions "damage from an attack", but this move doesn't inflict dmg. Jun 15, 2021 at 18:44
  • same thing for experience share, cursed shovel, rocky helmet, etc... Jun 15, 2021 at 18:50
  • Right - Experience share says "damage from an attack", so it would not proc here, nor would any other card that says "damage from an attack".
