Increases by 21% of your Sp. Attack

Not only will the item give a bonus of (40/50/60) to the Move, it will also have an additional increase in damage by 21% of the Pokemon's Sp. Attack stat.

8 Second Cooldown

This item activates and increases your Move's damage every 8 seconds. Be aware of this cooldown as your Moves will not always have increased damage.

Damage Bonus Only Affects 1 Pokemon

If you are using an AOE Move, you will only affect one of the opposing Pokemon that gets hit by the Move. The rest of the Pokemon that were also hit will take the normal amount of damage of the move.

Choice Specs Test

Bonus Damage Test

Goals Scored Total Damage Move Damage Bonus Damage
0 3201 2725 476
1 3216 2737 479
2 3230 2748 482
3 3246 2760 486
4 3261 2772 489
5 3276 2784 492
6 3291 2796 495

For this test, we verified how much damage bonus Choice Specs gives per move. We equipped Gardevoir with a Lvl.30 Choice Specs and a Lvl.1 Sp. Atk. Specs (Special Attack +8 per goal), and took note of how much damage Future Sight deals with those items.

The result shows that, with 0 → 6 goals scored, the damage increased by 48 (8x6), and the additional damage has increased by 19. The damage depending on the Special Attack is 19 ÷ (48) ≒ 0.396. In this case, the bonus damage Choice Specs gives is about 40%.

Activation Time Test

This test confirms the time it takes to activate Choice Specs' damage bonus. The next additional damage did not occur until 7 seconds after the additional damage dealt by Confusion, and it was confirmed that it occurred after 8 seconds.

7 Seconds

Multiple Targets Test

Choice Specs Mr. Mime

We also tried using an AoE move like Psychic to grouped enemies like the Vespiquen and Combees in the middle of lanes. Even if the move hits 4 enemies at the same time, the bonus damage only affects only 1 enemy.
