Best Pokemon for Energy Amplifier

Slowbro.jpgSlowbro Snorlax.jpgSnorlax

Energy Amplifier's effects activate whenever you cast your Unite Move, so Pokemon that are capable of using their Unite Moves repeatedly and in quick successions such as Machamp and Charizard are great users of this item. Cramorant is also particularly good with this item as it turns the first 4 seconds of its Gatling Gulp Missile into an HP shredding machine.

Energy Amplifier Test

Effect Duration Test

The purpose of this test was to determine how long the effect lasts from the moment the unite move is used until the effect is gone. After activating Pikachu's Unite move, we then proceeded to attack the doll with Standard Attacks and noted the damage increase until the effect disappears.

Time: 7:29
Attack Damage: 350
Time: 7:25
Attack Damage: 290

Effect Lasts for 4 Seconds

It is confirmed that the duration of the effect is about 4 seconds after the Unite Move is activated. Be sure to quickly follow up with Standard Attacks so you can deal extra damage!

Charge Rate Test

The purpose of this test was to compare the unite move recharge time with and without Energy Amplifier (Level 30) equipped. Here, we took note of the cooldown of Pikachu's Unite Move at the start of the match.

3 to 4 Seconds Faster Charge Rate

With Energy Amplifier Without Energy Amplifier
Fully Charged at 8:38 Fully Charged at 8:34

After testing, it is confirmed that the recharge time was about 3 to 4 seconds faster with the item equipped than without it. The slight difference looks to be negligible, considering the charge gets filled up each time you defeat an opponent, score goals, or farm Wild Pokemon. It may not be worth running the item solely for this effect, especially if the item is at low levels.

Cooldown Reduction Test

No Held Items Equipped With Energy Amplifier and Shell Bell

Cooldown: 11 seconds

Cooldown: 10 seconds

The purpose of this test was to determine if the cooldown reduction from Shell Bell (-4.5% reduction) stacks with the cooldown reduction from Energy Amplifier (-4.5% reduction). By multiplying the original cooldown time of Feint, which is 11 seconds, by the combined cooldown reduction from both items (-9% or 0.09), the result is 0.99 seconds. Subtracting that with the original cooldown time results in results in approximately 10 seconds. With this calculation, it is confirmed that the cooldown reduction from Shell Bell stacks with the cooldown reduction from other items like Energy Amplifier.
