I mean that would be kinda rigged. Oh you dynamaxed? TOO BAD
I was wondering cause I just was in a battle where they dynamaxed and then my circle throw missed :(
Also, its one of those moves that wouldn't make sense. Like how would throwing a Pokemon like 10 times the size of you do anything

Dynamax Pokémon cannot be switched out by the effects of moves that switch the target out (like Roar and Whirlwind). Circle Throw and Dragon Tail will still damage Dynamax Pokémon without switching it out. Red Card also fails to switch out a Dynamax Pokémon, but is still activated and consumed. Dynamax Pokémon can still be forced out by their own Abilities or items, such as Emergency Exit or an Eject Button. If a Dynamax Pokémon has Magic Bounce and is targeted by Parting Shot, the move will be reflected and force the Dynamax Pokémon to switch out (the owner of the Dynamax Pokémon is still able to choose the Pokémon that it is replaced with).

When used on a Dynamax or Gigantamax Pokémon, Circle Throw will deal damage but not force the target to switch out.

Hope this helps! :)

This one time, I was playing National Dex AG with my Zygarde. It used Dragon Tail as the enemy dynamaxed, the foe took damage but didn't get dragged out. Unfortunately that battle is lost in history. However, this is what Bulbapedia says

When used on a Dynamax or Gigantamax Pokémon, Circle Throw will deal damage but not force the target to switch out.

So, Circle throw does fail against a Dynamaxed/Gigantamax Pokemon

Hope this helps!
