Just curious, are they worth using competitively? I know they provide a one time boost to an attack with the same type as it but how big is it and would it be considered effective enough to use?

I've heard the Flying Gem is a good combo with Acrobatics, since it is consumed before the attack.

Was thinking of running something similar in Battle Subway if the boost is high enough...

Archeops /Rock Gem/

Rock Slide
Earthquake
Acrobatics
Crunch

First turn Rock Slide for heavy damage, then just spam STAB Aerobatics until the team dies.

But this is only useful if it has a decent enough boost (>30%) otherwise it's not really worth it.

It gives a 50% boost.

Drifblim can have some fun with it using Unburden, too (in addition to Acrobat).

50%...

hot damn that's awesome. Better go look for the rest of the gems. Are certain gems found in certain caverns? I've been wandering about Chargestone Cave and I believe I've found Normal, Dark, Ground and Flying types, but not a lot all else.
