So it appears my previous answer got hidden.
Again, i would believe it was a life orb, and this time i found a video of a Jolteon getting 10% life orb damage and it says "The foe's JOLTEON hung onto life!"
And i wasn't saying it always says it, but this is probably a rom, maybe translated from a japanese patch so that's why it doesn't say the same on your ds.

At 1:50 in this video.

That was probably the work of a Focus Sash, Sturdy, Endure, one of the moves that prevent Pokemon from getting Ko'ed although l'm not exactly sure which.

When it says this, it means that the Pokemon had a Focus Sash, or used any one of the moves that prevent a KO. Basically like MidnightSky said.

Hope this helps =)
