Slot No. Affects Damage

Scope Lens - Order of Item

As a result of examining what happens to the amount of damage when combined with the Scope Lens that also increases damage, it was found that the damage changes depending on the order in which the Muscle Band and Scope Lens are placed.

Given this information, it is possible to deal the most damage when you hold the Scope Lens first (Slot No.1).

Muscle Band is best used by Pokemon that rely primarily on attack damage as their main source of damage. The bonus attack damage plus the bonus attack speed Muscle Band gives truly shines in the later stages of the game where Pokemon are fully evolved, making them a powerhouse for taking down enemies and wild Pokemon bosses like Zapdos.

Furthermore, Muscle Band is best paired with Scope Lens as they complement each other perfectly. Equipping both items on any of the Pokemon listed above can make them deal ridiculous amounts of damage, especially when the items are at max level (Level 30).

      A bit late, but could I join? I’m relatively new to masters, but I play Snorlax, Eldegoss and Dragonite decently well. My trainer code is KTRH0GF and my discord is IDunno#2708 (y’know, just in case).
