How can I make self-destruct and explosion stronger?

I noticed my Weezing hasn't been dealing enough damage when it exploded. Usually, explosion and self-destruct would wipe the opponent out. It would be really helpful if someone gave me a tip. Thanks.

Well, apparently I flagged it by accident, but I've unflagged it now. :3

You can boost it up two ways, I recommend the second.

A) Silk Scarf
B) Normal Gem

Both these items boost Normal type moves which by extension means Explosion and Self-Destruct.


Or you know, Choice Band, Life Orb, Muscle Band. Those are also items. Or EV training in Attack. ~trachy

What about STAB?
Unfortunately as Weezing is poison type it does not get STAB from Explosion or Self-Destruct
I know but if it was it would make it stronger wouldn't it?
Yes STAB would power up Explosion and Self-Destruct
Or you know, Choice Band, Life Orb, Muscle Band. Those are also items. Or EV training in Attack.
thanks trachy

The only true way is with the use of the Normal Gem, that boosts damage of Normal Type Moves, boosting it similar to a Life Orb.

Well, the Silk Scarf can raise it's power by 20%, and the Normal Gem (yeah, like exploding is normal) can increase the move by 50%, but is consumed after.

What game are you playing? I can show the location for these items if you tell me the game your playing.

Hope I helped. :)

No praise for me. Ninja'd by a lot. >.<
I am currently playing Heart Gold.
For the Scarf you can get it in Johto: New Bark Town (Mom's Savings), and Normal Gems are not obtainable in HG according to Serebii
Well, at least the scarf is convenient, thanks.
Play GEN 4 when Explosion calculated damage off 1/2 the opponents Def instead xD
Thanks for doing that for me MrK. xD
