I think if you attack with a normal move with a life orb EG: earthquake it will do the 1.3 damage increase, times the 1.3 damage increase from sheer power to do 1.69 times the damage, but if I attack with move that activates sheer force EG: Flare blitz would it do 2.197 times the damage or would it still be 1.69 times the damage as sheer power has already activated?

Best answer

If the user is holding a Life Orb and uses an attack that activates Sheer Force, it will not receive the 10% damage from Life Orb, but it gets boosts from both Life Orb and Sheer Force (total of 69% base power increase).
