Granted this was on showdown so idk if it's a glitch or not (also I was using metronome so don't question)

Turn 1
Snorlax used Magma Storm on Gyarados, taking like 3% damage
Gyarados was surrounded by a swirling vortex of fire! (or w/e)
Gyarados takes the usual 11-12% as the turn ends

Turn 2
Gyarados used substitute
Gyarados didn't take the 11-12% damage, nor was there a message that said Gyarados had been freed from the vortex

I would assume that the sub was taking the magma storm damage instead of Gyarados.

I did not. He took a Waterfall the following turn but didn't die. I remember because it flinched.
