TM Devolution Error


I just used TM Devolution on turn 6 of a battle. My opponent's board state was the following: 2 rare candied Charizards; 1 rare candied Pidgeot; 1 Charmeleon; 1 Pidgeotto; 1 Manaphy.

It devolved everything except for the Charmeleon. It started to make the animation like it was going to, but then it just skipped it (Charizard players, go figure).

This is now the 2nd time this has happened. Both times the Charmeleon didn't devolve.

    Read the Charmeleon's Ability next time, please. It protects it from effects of attacks.

    @TechHog my apologies, you are correct. It did not occur to me that Evolution/Devolution was an "attack." I'm still pretty new, so I'm learning these things. Thank you.
