If I have a Swoobat with the Simple ability, and it has used Calm Mind twice, does the increase in base power of Stored Power negate the special attack boost?

[Base + n(boosts)x20] + STAB
20 + 8(20) + STAB
180 x 1.5


[Base + n(boosts)x20] x (2+n(SpA boosts)/2) + STAB
[20 + 8(20)]x(6/2) + STAB
180 x 3 + STAB
540 x 1.5

One of these should be right, and I'm really hoping it's the latter.

I don't see why it would be the first one.

The base power will be of the first equation (270). It will deal the damage of the second after STAB and SpAtk boosts.

For instance, Ember has a base power of 40, but after STAB in a fire type Pokémon, it will act like it is base power of 60.

The first equation is already considering STAB.
I was really only asking if the move factored boosts for both the base power and the total power, and it looks like the answer is yes.
