And of course hit by a Physical move.

Editor Edit: Because you people can't seem to understand what is being asked, let me give you an example.

A Pikachu uses Substitute. A Pidgey then attacks the Pikachu. Will Static activate on the Pidgey?

Goddamn it people. Seems your feeble little minds can't comprehend the question, so I'll make it simple for you.
Thanks Trachy

No because the attack does not hit the pokemon it will hit the substitute
