Question about pixalate, hyper voice, sylveon

Pixilate:
Pixilate causes all Normal-type moves used by the Pokémon to become Fairy-type and receive a 30% boost.

So does this mean that hyper voice will have an 80% because of stab?

If not, why is pixilate better than moon blast? or is it?

The 30% is factored in before STAB, IIRC. So Hyper Voice becomes 117 BP and then receives the STAB bonus, making it 175 BP that goes through Substitutes.

Moonblast is really only better if you really rely on the opponent's SpAtk falling.

The main reason Pixilate>Moonblast on Sylveon is,yes,the 30%+ damage and STAB to Hyper Voice.The ability to pass through substitutes makes it even more outclass Moonblast.
