When using Pikachu & Zekrom Tag Team GX's attack Tag Bolt GX with Mew as the attacking Pokémon and choosing a benched Pokémon to deal damage to Barrier Bench appears to still be in effect. Shouldn't the effect "resolve" as soon as Mew hits zero hits hit points.

 

P&Z attacks, deals Damage to Mew, Mew is KOed, it's ability is no longer in effect because it's hit points are zero, P&Z attacks the bench with attack effect, damage is dealt?

Welcome to forums

 

It's not a bug, it's how it works Order of operations. Hits Mew and hits bench in the same attack, hence the same moment, with Mew still in play. Then sets the damage counters for Mew and for the other (which have been prevented so nothing to do here). Then in the change of turn (chekup) resolves all the Special conditions, Abilities in play ending or lasting, KOs for prizes and etcetera. Kind of.

 

* EDIT* Easier: When you attack the ability is in play hence it works  What happens later, is later.

Hope you don't mind I tell you for the future:

Spoiler

 

1. Saying what lines is the issue, helps anyone that wants to help. 200 lines of checking makes people just pass by.

2. Using Spoiler 👁️‍🗨️ (icon) is encouraged for messages as long as these to keep forums reading comfortable.

3. All Debug information is useless here (only Support may check that part). Next time end the forums message in 'Game log output ends here' (but keep the whole in a text editor just in case needs to be sent to support). Although if in Spoiler it's not so disturbing, but yet is the endless part and useless 😅

This is working as intended. You check for KO's only after completely resolving the attack.

 

Mew was not KO'd until after the attack fully resolves, so the ability still protects the bench. Damage is done, then mew is KO'd, a new Active Pokemon is promoted, and a Prize Card is taken. Then the turn ends.
