Hmm. I've always acted as though Chills disregarded Taunt. By the Compendium's logic, you couldn't have your Pokemon do nothing, as that doesn't cause damage, and you also couldn't have your Pokemon use a non-effective move (Thunderbolt on a Ground-type) since that doesn't do damage either.

If Breloom hadn't Chilled, she would've either had to go against her conditional, allow Chill to fail and do nothing (still going against the rules of Taunt), or I'd treat this like Sleep Talk and roll a random move.

That given, I feel I handled it as best I could, given my options. But, this isn't my battle; what do you two think?
I need a new sig, uhg.
