Technician (Ability)

Pokemon with this ability All abilities Comments


In battle

Technician increases the power of moves which have a power of 60 or less by 1.5×.

For moves with variable power, Technician will only apply if the power is 60 or less when used. Thus, Pursuit will not get a Technician boost if the opposing Pokemon switches and Pursuit’s power doubles to 80, and Low Kick and Grass Knotwill only get a Technician boost if the target’s weight is 49.9 kg or less. Similarly, if a move like Avalanche is used by a Pokemon previously damaged in the same turn, which doubles Avalanche’s power to 120, then Technician will not be applied.

The effect does not apply to confusion damage, which remains at a power of 40.

Outside of battle

Technician has no effect outside of battle.
