Download raises either the bearer's Attack or Special Attack by one stage when switching into battle, base on the opponent's defenses.

It raises Attack if the opponent's Defense is lower than its Special Defense, or raises Special Attack if opponent's Special Defense is lower than or equal to its Defense.

In double and triple battles, Download compares the sum of all opponents' Defense stats and the sum of all opponents' Special Defense stats and uses the lowest total.
