This is an guide on Attacks and Special Attacks in Pokemon UNITE. Learn more about the key differences between Attacks and Special Attacks, as well as which Pokemon and items specialize in which kind of attacks below.
List of Contents
Each Pokemon is classified as a Physical Attacker or a Special Attacker. Physical Attackers deal damage based on their Attack stat and have their damage reduced by the enemy's Defense stat. Special Attackers deal damage based on their Special Attack stat and have their damage reduced by the enemy's Special Defense stat.
Standard Attacks, or attacks made by pressing the A Button, are counted as Physical Attacks for most Pokemon, even if the Pokemon doing these attacks is a Special Attacker.
Final Attacks are powered up attacks that occur on every third Normal Attack. The type of damage that upgraded attacks deal varies depending on the Pokemon's attack type; some Special Attackers will deal Special Attack damage with their Final Attacks.
Taking your Pokemon's attack type into consideration when giving them items is very important to ensure optimal performance. For instance, if you give a Special Attacker Pokemon such as Pikachu the Wise Glasses item, it will boost Pikachu's Special Attack stat, which will make its Moves more powerful.
On the other hand, if you give an Attacker Pokemon such as Garchomp the same Wise Glasses, it's pretty much a waste of an item slot as Garchomp's attacks and Moves can't make use of the Special Attack stat.
