Two questions about the Red Card item?

  1. Does it activate if the holder is behind a substitute?
  2. Does it only work if the user is hit by a physical attack?

  1. Yes it doesn't work if the Pokemon hit is behind a substitute. Pokemon needs to take actual damage for Red Card to work.
  2. No, it works if any damaging attack is used on the Pokemon holding the card.

Tested this on showdown.
