Just to clarify re: Acrobatics + Technician + Flying Gem...

For a Technician Acrobatics Scizor:

with Flying Gem equipped, it gets Technician boost + Gem boost + itemless boost?

with no item equipped, it gets only the itemless boost?

The whole "it gets the itemless boost because the gem is used up but yet still triggers Technician but truly itemless Acrobatics is too strong to trigger Technician" thing is complicated. <_<

The Technician boost only occurs when the power is calculated as if an item is held.
The official Charizard of the Pokemon Black 2 and White 2 boards.

It won't get the technician boost. The multipliers for the BP are added on after the item gets used up, hence why the flying gem works.

So, since the item gets used up, the BP of Acrobatics goes to 120, so technician won't activate.
