In battle
For moves with variable power, Technician will only apply if the power is 60 or less when used. Thus, {{m|Pursuit}} will not get a Technician boost if the opposing Pokémon switches and Pursuit's power doubles to 80, and {{m|Low Kick}} and {{m|Grass Knot}} will only get a Technician boost if the target's weight is 110.0 lbs. (49.9 kg) or less. Similarly, if a move like {{m|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.
Additionally, Technician will check for the presence of {{a|Fairy Aura}} and {{a|Dark Aura}} (with or without {{a|Aura Break}}), as well as a teammate's {{a|Battery}}, when determining whether it should apply. No other external factors that affect move power (such as [[Plates]]) are taken into account.
The effect does not apply to confusion damage, which remains at a power of 40.
