Wouldnt acrobatics be nullified though? Regardless if the gem holder is going to be used that turn?


Actually the calculation for whether or not Acrobatics will get the "no held item" power boost is calculated after the Flying gem is used and therefore disappears allowing both boosts to stack. It's a weird trick, but it's also why Acrobatics Gliscor is such a terror.

Then i guess emboar loses that fight.
Even if he had max EV on hp and atk, imfernape may top him
Wow, bandwagons are still voting a lost cause.

I wonder how many of the ones voting for Blaziken don't realize that Hi Jump Kick halves the user's health, if it's blocked by Protect or Detect.

I like Blaziken, it just wouldn't realistically win unless Speed Boost is in play, and even then it's possible for Infernape to win with a Focus Sash unless Blaziken decides to have Quick Attack take up a move slot, which is probably not an ideal choice.

Well realistically tomorrow when i announce the disturbing news i just got, i may need to setup a flame fort for being "unfair" as the bandwagons would say.

Just got word that infernape was superior in this match.
