Suggestion: The pokémon loses 25% of their health and uses a good amount of energy (say, equal to Thunderbolt) to make it happen. The Substitute acts as if it were the real pokémon in terms of energy and does not break through energy usage. It can't be put statused in anyway (user still can).

I think that makes Substitute good but bot broken. As long as you make sure to clarify all the "User does this while pokémon is attacking" stuff as in the existing version I don't see it as a problem. No-one is gonna use Substitute more than once because of the 25% loss in health and the sub will still break after taking a yper Beam of damage.
