Klinklang Ability (Plasma Steel) Question

Recommended Posts

Klinklang's (Plasma Storm 90) ability is:

Prevent all damage done to your STEEL Pokemon by attacks from your opponent's Pokemon-EX.

 

 

I'm wondering why Klinklang's ability does not prevent damage done from "DROPPING DAMAGE COUNTERS."

 

For example: Gengar EX's (Phantom Forces 34) NIGHT ATTACK says to "Put 3 damage counters on 1 of your opponent's Pokemon."
 

Another example: Chandelure EX's (Legendary Treasures 77) CURSED DROP says to "Put 4 damage counters on your opponent's Pokemon in any way you like."

 

 

In theory, shouldn't Klinklang's ability prevent these attacks from inflicting any damage? Is it a glitch in the game or is it just a loophole in Klinklang's ability?

There's a difference from DOING DAMAGE and PUTTING DAMAGE COUNTERS since one is actually attacking and the other one is more of a curse I guess you could say (if we're talking about other games or real life). Same way that Crobat and Golbat can put damage on benched pokemon when Mr Mime is on the field. So no, this isn't a bug it's legit.

Doing damage and putting damage counters aren't the same thing, for example Bench Barrier Mr Mime protects against damage but not against damage counters, and the same for Klinglang's ability, it only prevents damage but not counters.
