Acrobatics flying gem vs Acrobatics no item? [closed]

1 vote

If I use Acrobatics with a Flying Gem will it be stronger than using Acrobatics with no item.
I am asking this because Acrbatics description says it is stronger when the user doesn't have an item.
BTW I am using it for a Shiny Gliscor ^.^
Thanks in advance.
PS. Please give the power stats so I can compare them.

Best answer

The power of Acrobatics is doubled if the user has no held item. Acrobatics can hit non-adjacent opponents in Triple Battles. If the user is holding a Flying Gem, the item is consumed before this move checks whether the Pokémon has an item or not; therefore, the power is tripled.
