She can't redirect an attack that hasn't been made though. She can't redirect flames that haven't been made essentially. Basically, in this scenario, Fire Blast is made, Backlash Redirect uses psychic abilities to prevent damage by moving the attack in another direction. If there are no flames to move, then the attack is rendered useless. It does deflect damage before it hits, however deflecting something that hasn't been made yet doesn't make sense.

It's like deflecting a bullet that hasn't been shot yet. You can't deflect the bullet unless it's been shot first.

Yes, but a faster pokemon could wait until the attack had been formed and then deflect it, like in a conditional where it is told to wait. On the other hand, if a pokemon is slower than its opponent, it can't move until after it's been hit, so it doesn't have a chance to redirect the attack.

Ignoring my previous example that was written badly very late in the evening...the move, anime wise, would be similar to using Psychic to take control of the flames and move them away to avoid damage before the Pokemon is actually hit. Only the actual sig move itself has more effects which is why I directed that rather than saying "Use Psychic to ward the flames away". Anime wise, even if a Pokemon has a slower base speed, I don't see why it can only move after it's been hit. That would mean that a slower Pokemon wouldn't be able to dodge a faster Pokemon's first attack action when it was given as a first command, and would dodge the second action made by the faster Pokemon.

I was asked to bring in a second opinion so here I am.

I agree that the move's description made it sound like the move waited until Shayda was hit; however, it seems to me like Shayda should've blocked the attack. When we take a closer look, ya see:
Quote:
Whenever an oncoming projectile attack is aimed at her,
Yep. Oncoming, meaning she uses the move in the space between the time the attack is used and the time it hits.

My four haypennies for ya.

Okay, the last round has been edited accordingly. It's Saraibre Ryu's turn to post now.

If Blissey attempts to use any special attacks, use Agility to dodge them and get in close. If Blissey doesn't use any special attacks, use Twinneedle. If she protects though, then use Hone Claws. If Agility worked, cling to her back and follow up with Leech Life. If Agility didn't work out, use Electroweb instead. IF a Substitute is up, use Pin Missle.

Agility/Twinneedle/Hone Claws ~ Leech Life/Electroweb/Pin Missle

Prepare to use Fire Blast again, Blissey. When Ariados starts using Agility and gets close to you, try your best to get Fire Blast landed on her. After that, use Chill.

Fire Blast ~ Chill.

With the new round of the battle, Shayda had a new plan to get herself ahead. However, before she could put it into action, she had to make sure that her opponent’s plans fitted with her own. Sure enough, she had managed to guess her opponent’s moves ahead of time: Blissey began almost immediately to prepare a star of fire to throw at the ninja spider. As soon as the first traces of fire began to appear around the nurse pokémon though, Ariados started to move, hoping that a sudden burst of speed would allow her to dodge the upcoming attack.

Blissey could see that she was building up speed, but knew that she still had a slight advantage over her. She threw out the star, and it shot through the air like a rocket. Ariados moved as quickly as she could to get around the attack so that she could strike at her target, but she wasn’t fast enough. Flames seared across her left side, marking her skin but not leaving any lasting damage. The pain made her gasp, she was badly hurt now. However, she didn’t let that stop her high-velocity charge, and before Blissey knew it, the spider was on her back, ready to finish her strategy.

Shayda’s teeth began to glow with a vicious-looking green energy, and she bit down on the back of Blissey’s neck. The nurse squirmed, the spider’s jaws were like a vice clamping down on her, but they weren’t able to do very much damage. Still, Shayda was able to heal herself a little using the energy she drained from her prey, which could help her a little in the future.

Blissey shook the spider off and glared her down. There wasn’t a great deal of pain, but it was enough to make her uncomfortable. Rather than try to strike out again and get her own back though, she decided to try and regain a little energy. Unfortunately, she couldn’t find a way to calm herself down and rest. No matter how hard she tried, none of the energy seemed to be coming back. In the end, she gave up and contented herself by glaring at Ariados, trying to figure out what exactly had gone wrong.

Blissey, use Fire Blast. If Ariados tries to avoid it, keep chasing her until you land the move. If Ariados uses Protect, increase the power of Fire Blast to break the protection. After that, use Fire Blast once again.

Fire Blast ~ Fire Blast.

You might wanna edit the bolded moves there...and Blissey can't chill because of Disable, not Encore...

Shayda this is becoming the same old song and dance. I want you to focus on those flames and disperse them to cover yourself with Psychic.

Psychic [Cover Self] ~ Psychic [Cover Self]

Blissey knew that she had to take any attempt to damage her seriously, even if it seemed to make no difference at all. She blasted a star of fire across the battlefield, scorching the grass beneath her. The flames moved in towards Shayda, threatening to engulf her and hurt her badly.

The spider had other ideas though; she closed her eyes and reached out with her mind, breaking up the star. The fire was scattered through the air, dissipating into nothing. However, Shayda’s mental prowess, although formidable, was not enough to completely block the oncoming attack. A small proportion of the fire had survived her ethereal touch and wrapped itself around the Ariados’ head. She screamed in pain as it burned her skin, but there was no lasting damage when the flames died.

Trying not to let her annoyance show, Blissey began to produce another blast of heat. Unfortunately, the adrenaline pumping through her body had stopped her from noticing how fatigued she was. A dribble of fire escaped from her mouth and she sank to her knees – her muscles finally too exhausted to go on. Shayda flicked away the fire, but her opponent was already unconscious. The spider blinked and looked at the unmoving pink lump; she had won. The two trainers shook hands and recalled their pokémon. The battle was over now and it was time to leave the field to recover its burnt grass in peace.
