Technician

Description

When the wielder uses a move that has 60 Base Power or less (including Struggle), the Base Power is increased by 50%. STAB and effectiveness modifiers are not counted when determining whether the move is boosted by Technician, but Helping Hand is. If a move has variable Base Power and would have 60 Base Power or less when used, it is also boosted by 50%. Note that while self-inflicted confusion damage is a 40 Base Power typeless move, it is not boosted by 50%.

Competitive Use

Honestly one of the best abilities in the game; the main user of it is Scizor, who can inflict great amounts of damage with its boosted Bullet Punch and Bug Bite. Other notable Pokemon include Breloom, who can take advantage of a boosted Bullet Seed and Mach Punch, making it an extremely potent threat. Hitmontop can become a great revenge killer with the plethora of priority moves in its arsenal. You will see this ability a lot when you play OU.
