Sheer Force + Life Orb

What is the exact amount of boost do I get from this combination, and how much power will a move like Sludge Wave do(Normally effective) on my Nidoking with this Combination?

Sheer force will boost it 30%, as does the power of the life orb, together, they make a total of 69% base power increase. However, this assumes you use a move that activates Sheer force obviously.

Hi Sir. Just wandering. Does this also works on Pokemon black 2? I'm so left behind.
This will always and forever work. It worked from the day Sheer Force + Life Orb was born and it will work until the day it dies.

So yes, it works in Black 2.

DarkTyphlosion is right. I was wondering myself but if you have Sheer Force and a life orb you will not take life orb recoil. Example: Nidoking with sheer force uses Sludge Wave with 95 base power, goes up to 142.5 with STAB, with Sheer force added that's 185.25 and with the life orb...that's a staggering 240.825! Which means you will do tonnes of damage. I used Sludge wave as an example, since it has a secondary effect (poisoning the foe) Earthquake won't get the sheer force bonus as it has no secondary effect. As a result you will take life orb damage. Hope this helps! Now I need to get one myself! >:-)
