In battle
Technician increases the [[power]] of moves which have a power of 60 or less by 50%.
For moves with variable power, Technician will only apply if the power is 60 or less when used. Thus,For {{m|Pursuit}} will not get a Technician boost if the opposing Pokémon switches and Pursuit's power doubles to 80example, 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,The ifonly aexternal moveeffects likewhich {{m|Avalanche}}are isapplied usedbefore byTechnician a Pokémon previously damaged inchecks the same turn, which doubles Avalanchemove's power toare 120{{a|Fairy Aura}}, then{{a|Dark TechnicianAura}}, will{{a|Aura notBreak}}, beand applied{{a|Battery}}.
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.
