How to Use the Shell Bell
The Shell Bell will heal you for a minimum of 45 HP whenever one of your basic or unite moves hits an enemy, whether that’s an opposing or wild Pokémon. This healing scales with your Pokémon’s special attack stat, so the higher your special attack, the more HP you’ll get back. The Shell Bell can be upgraded, which increases your special attack stat and speeds up your move cooldowns.
The Shell Bell is the perfect item for special attack Pokémon, such as Alolan Ninetales or Pikachu, which grants them extra sustain. It’s also a great item for special attackers that spend most of the early game jungling, as you’ll probably never need to return to base or a score point to heal up.
