acrobatics + flying gem

#1xDSlotx724Posted 3/20/2011 11:43:07 AM
if i have a pokemon hold a flying gem and use acrobatics, will the acrobatics have the base power as if the pokemon was not holding an item, causing the power to be 165, or as if it was holding an item, making the power 82.5?

it boosts and then it checks to see if the item if it is holding an item so 165 and then depending on the mon it gets stab

It would be 82.5, since the Pokemon would be holding an item.
lol.
I tested it. (dmg wise).

The item gets used before damage calculation so Acrobatics is treated like there is no held item.

Something is wrong with your testing, because I've been using Flying Gem Archeops on the Battle Subway. The Acrobatics with a Flying Gem are clearly doing significantly more than the Acrobatics that occur after the Flying Gem is used. By your math the Acrobatics with a Flying Gem would do *less*.

well thats a nice surprise. i would be using the combo on my grass monkey, so no STAB, but base 165 and can attack anywhere in triple battles is definitely respectable
