well, it boosts acrobatics 165 base Power, and activates unburden, but im not sure why it would be more popular in doubles
I suppose powering up a move a lot once works best in double battles.

On the other hand, type-boosting Gems boost a single attack for a one time use. Double battles are usually short enough that one boosted attack is enough to decide the outcome.
