TCG Coin flip question

    I have a important question about pokemon with attacks. (NOT the ones that say "Flip a coin, if heads this attack does * + more damage. If tails this attack does nothing.)

    I havent played the card game for quite a while.

    My category is... if a pokemon has a attack that does damage for a single toss but if it gets tails. Does it still damage opponent as well with self damage (like Life Orb item in games) Or does he only hurt himself. (It does not have any conditions for does nothing.)

    My card is a Electivire from Sun & Moon Burning Shadows/Crimson Invasion.

    don't want to be rude but is it too much to ask to get a little help?

    I'm pretty sure, that still does the damage to the opponent and also does the damage to itself. I'm not 100% positive though.

    On tails the attack will do 60 AND 20 damage to itself. The effect does not state the attack doesn't damage to opponent on tails. To further prove this note how the attack is "60+". In short:

    Heads=120 Damage.
    Tails= 60 Damage. 20 to self.
