Say I have a Technician Scizor that uses Acrobatics. It has no held item. Now what would go first: the 50% boost from Technician, or the double Acrobatics power. If the power is doubled first then Technician won't work but if Technician goes first then the total power of Acrobatics would be:

(55x1.5)x2= 165

P.S. This would make it equivalent to Flying Gem Acrobatics right?

Nope. Techinician doesn't affect it.

Found nothing on Bulbapedia, so I decided to test it myself.

No item: 40% Damage.

With Leftovers: 30% Damage.
