What does the Slick Spoon do in Pokemon UNITE?

The Slick Spoon makes damage dealt by your Pokemon's Special Attacks ignore up to 20% (once it is upgraded to level 30) of your enemy's Special Defense stat, dealing more damage.

That means that you can take down bulky defenders like Slowbro and Snorlax with relative ease. It’s particularly good on Special Attackers like Sylveon or Pikachu, who can’t lower an opposing Pokemon's Special Defense.

It’s important to pair this item with a moveset that doesn’t impact Special Defense already.

For example, you wouldn’t want to use the Slick Spoon if you ran Psychic on Gardevoir, which already lowers the enemy Special Defense. However, if you choose to run Moonblast instead of Psychic, you would keep that ability to reduce enemy Special Defense with the Slick Spoon.

How Held Items works

Once you reach Trainer Level 10, you can equip up to 3 Held Items, which all provide unique bonuses to your Pokemon.

If you want to climb the Ranked ladder, your Held Item combinations are some of the most critical tactical choices you can make. Experiment and find the right builds for your playstyle! If you want to see what the pros are running with, you can see recommended builds by selecting the option in the team composition screen.

You can upgrade your Held Items up to Level 30 by purchasing Item Enhancers from the Aeos Emporium. Upgrading your Held Items increases the passive stat boost and boosts the effect provided by your items to your Pokemon during matches.
