Technician increases the power of moves which have a power of 60 or less by 1.5×.
For moves with variable power, Technician will only apply if the power is 60 or less when used. Thus, Pursuit will not get a Technician boost if the opposing Pokémon switches and Pursuit's power doubles to 80. Similarly, if a move like Avalanche is used by a Pokémon previously damaged in the same turn, which doubles Avalanche's power to 120, then Technician will not be applied.
The effect does not apply to confusion damage, which remains at a power of 40.
Outside of battle
Technician has no effect outside of battle.
