Let's say a Pokemon uses doom desire and then switches to a Pokemon with bigger special attack. Will the doom desire deal more damage?

No. (Filler)
Which game are you playing?
This isn't true since Generation 5.
Pokemon showdown
What format?
It is in Gen 6 and 7 this still applies I think.

No. No it does not. It’s calculated using the power of the Pokémon that attacked, not the Pokémon you have out when the attack hits.

Source: I finally decided to use Jirachi. I switched into Magikarp and doom desire still did huge damage to Xerneas. (Magikarp is Adamant 31*2).
