Default Bent Spoon

Let me clarify that I am new to the game and I only play because my son enjoys playing and that I will play with him.
I thought when I read the abilities of the bent spoon that if I attached it to a benched pokemon that the tool would stop all attacks except those attacks on the one its attached to. meaning that all attacks would not go through unless my opponent attacked my pokemon on the bench and knocked him out. But as I read other posts on the card it seems that the card only discards attacks that are special conditions, ie paralyze. Which way is it.?

Bent spoon versus attacks that place damage counters on Benched Pokemon:
-Say your opponent has Trevanent Break and uses Silent Fear. If your Benched Pokemon has Bent Spoon attached, that pokemon would not have any damage counters placed on it as it was part of Silent Fear's attack effect, however, it would not stop any other pokemon from receiving damage unless they had Bent Spoon attached as well.

"the Pokemon this card is attached to" is the key phrase.

The Pokemon that Bent Spoon is attached to can only receive damage from an attack, nothing else the attack states to do (remove from the Active position, get effected by a Special Condition, have Damage Placed on it (as FlareStorm99's example), get De-Evolved, et. al.).

I think I see your problem.

The card says: Prevent all effects of your opponent's attacks, except damage, done to the Pokémon this card is attached to. (Existing effects are not removed.)
You are reading it as: Prevent all effects of your opponent's attacks except damage done to the Pokémon this card is attached to. (Existing effects are not removed.)

Commas matter.
