Sp. Atk. Specs Damage Stacking

Scoring a goal with Sp. Atk. Specs equipped will increase your Sp. Attack stat by a flat amount, regardless of how many points you score per goal. This effect can stack up to 6 times.

There's also no cooldown for this item's effect upon scoring a goal, meaning you could do something like scoring 6 goals within 30 seconds and still gain the bonus stat per goal.

Also Affects Final Attack

No Goal 1 Goal

If a Pokemon's final attack has a Sp. Attack stat like Pikachu, the effect of Sp. Atk. Specs will be applied only to the final attack.

Does Not Raise Attack Stat

Keep in mind that the Sp. Atk. Specs does not increase your Attack stat, meaning normal attacks (excluding enhanced normal attacks) and Physical Attacker type Pokemon remain unaffected. It is therefore, recommended to give this item to a Special Attacker type Pokemon.

Attack Vs. Special Attack

Effect Lasts Until End of the Match

The Sp. Attack stat raised with Sp. Atk. Specs will continue until the end of the match. The effect does not disappear over time, and it does not disappear when your Pokemon gets knocked down.

Given that this item raises your Sp. Attack with every goal scored, you'll want to put this item on Pokemon who can aggressively take out opponents and score goals, such as Alolan Ninetales and Venusaur. It can also be used if your Pokemon is suited to sneaking around enemies and scoring goals behind their backs, like Gengar or Zeraora.

Sp. Atk. Specs Test

Damage Stacking Test

For this test, we used Gengar's ability Hex on the practice dummy found in the Practice Arena to see how many times the damage increase stacks. This also tells us how much damage is added each time a goal is made.

Damage Stacking Result

Number of Goals Damage
1 Goal 1384
2 Goals 1395
3 Goals 1407
4 Goals 1418
5 Goals 1430
6 Goals 1441
7 Goals 1441
(No Change)

Based on the table above, the damage does indeed stack when you score goals. However, the damage increase stops after your score 6 goals.

Points Per Goal Test

2 Points
50 Points

We also verified whether the number of points scored when scoring a goal affects the increase of the Sp. Attack stat. In the test above, we confirm that scoring a small or large amount of points does not affect the damage increase you get from Sp. Atk. Specs.
