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


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? – Beerhunter Mar 19 at 7:51
  • Correct. Big Parasol would block it from doing anything if it were on the active Pokémon. – Joe Mar 19 at 10:52
  • I wonder if Hero's medal applies here. The card mentions "damage from an attack", but this move doesn't inflict dmg. – FluffyFlareon Jun 15 at 18:44
  • same thing for experience share, cursed shovel, rocky helmet, etc... – FluffyFlareon Jun 15 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". – Joe Jun 15 at 18:52
