X Attack Latest Buffs and Nerfs (8/18)

X Attack.pngX Attack  • Effect duration increased from 5 seconds to 8 seconds (+60%).
 • Basic attack damage boost increased from 1.1x to 1.2x, and move damage boost increased slightly depending on the move. (See Details)

Duration Increased from 5 seconds to 8 seconds

X Attack's effect duration has been increased from 5 seconds to 8 seconds, a simple but drastic change. This 3 second duration increase is definitely good news for Pokemon that greatly benefit from the item, such as Absol, and Cramorant. The increased duration allows Pokemon to crank out higher damage output through the use of more attacks and moves while the damage boost is active.

Damage Multiplier Increased Slightly

X Attack's damage multiplier for basic attacks is slightly increased from 1.1 to 1.2 times, while the damage multiplier for moves increased slightly depending on the move.

These changes do not impact battles as much as the 3 second effect duration increase do. In fact, it is safe to say that the changes to the damage multiplier is only a supplement to the effect duration increase, and since the increase was small, it should not have a large effect on the item's usability as a whole.

When to Use X Attack

Applying Heavy Damage

Use X Attack before going all-in with your attacks and Moves to deal a greater deal of damage to enemy Pokemon. It's particularly lethal in the hands of burst damage Pokemon such as Absol or Zeraora as the added damage boost lets them instantly obliterate squishy opponents with a single combo. You can also use it to increase damage in a teamfight, or gain the upper hand in a 1-on-1 duel with an enemy Pokemon.

Defeating Wild Pokemon

Use X Attack when defeating wild Pokemon to speed up the process, and get levels as fast as possible. Using it early on is not a problem since players are more focused on farming in the early phases of a match.

Increased Healing for Shell Bell Test

Without X Attack With X Attack
Healing is 511 Healing is 598
Healing increased by about 17%.

The purpose of this test was to determine if the healing effect from Shell Bell increases when X Attack is activated, since it increases the Sp. Atk.. The test was conducted in Practice Area by ordering the Pokemon to cast a move on the dummy with and without X Attack activated, and note if there is an increase in the healing from Shell Bell (Level 20). The healing from Shell Bell (Level 20) without X Attack activated was 511. When X Attack was activated the healing increased to 598, about a 17% increase.

As a result of the test, it is confirmed that the healing from Shell Bell increases when X Attack is activated. Pikachu is one of the ideal Pokemon to pick that can maximize this interaction. Having the bonus attack and special attack from X Attack, the enhanced healing from Shell Bell, and Pikachu's low cooldown moves increases not only its kill potential but also its sustainability within the 8 second duration of X Attack.
