If U-Turn or Volt Switch is used on a protected Pokemon, will the user still switch out?

Forretress used Protect!
Galvantula used Volt Switch!

It obviously won't hit, but do you still have the option to switch out?

No, U-Turn/Volt Switch needs to hit the opponent in order for the Pokemon to switch out.

U-Turn/Volt Switch Description : After making its attack, the user rushes back to switch places with a party Pokémon in waiting.
