Hi there! We're currently working through older tickets, and upon re-testing this issue, it seems to still be present in the current version (8.3.6).
1) Gave myself an UltraNecrozma with the necessary ultranecrozium z, lvl 80, with Photon Geyser.
2) Gave an NPC Trainer a Solgaleo (following the above example), lvl 80.
3) First test: Gave Necro 0 evs and ivs, except 252 spatk evs, and 31 spatk ivs (stat was 312 total spatk, 312 atk) to test special attack Light That Burns damage against Solgaleo - attack did about 67%.
4) Second test: Gave Necro 0 evs and ivs, except 252 atk evs, and 31 atk ivs (stat was 347 total atk, 244 spatk) to test physical attack Light That Burns damage against Solgaleo - attack did about 73%.
My findings: It does seem to be using the special attack stat in all cases, rather than using whichever attack or special attack stat is higher.
As such, I'll go ahead and move this to internal. Thank you!
