On Stadium, I noticed Sabrina's Exeggutor trying to Mega Drain my Hypno's sub. It missed every time! Is it because the game was not programed take HP from the sub, and restore it to yourself? I don't know if this has been found already, but I thought it was kinda neat.

I never had that happen, but on the PBS I sent out exeggutor against a subbing rhydon and I mega drained and it gave me almost full life and broke rhydons sub. So on the PBS you can take HP from the sub.

My guess is that since Mega Drain kinda sucks life from the opponent, and since a substitute is up, and since the substitute isn't alive, that, the move fails since you can't suck HP from something not alive...

This could be kinda silly, but, if this isn't the reason it's probably due to a glitch in the game, that or lack of programming on Ns part.

There are a load of attacks that don't even get through with a sub out, with Mega Drain, Absorb, and Leech Life being a few. All confusion, paralysis, sleep, and all that crap you already know. The reason why it doesn't work is because the sub doesn't have any real HP to drain.
