Best answer

Adaptability increases your STAB moves from 1.5x to 2×.
Hyper Beam does 150 damage.
With STAB, plus Adaptability, it will do 300 damage.

No, Silk Scarf boosts it by 20%, so with a Silk Scarf it's power would be 360.
with normal gem it would be 600
Just think... Hyper beam+adap+stab+silk powerful
ummmmmm hyper beam doesnt do 150 damage, thats the power of the move
and also, you shouldn't use silk scarf, get a life orb, adaptability hyper beam with that..... 300 power, and a 1.5x from life orb, i believe power isn't the same as damage, after all, there are many factors to calculate, and the equation is probably longer than what flame said for sure
