If it doesn't, is there another accuracy-raisin ability Wide Lens does stack with?

by
I don't see why not, but testing this would be difficult. If your move has 85% accuracy and never misses with both wide lens and victory star, I don't know how you can tell whether it's because they stack or you just got lucky.
It's bound to eventually happen.
Yes it does I checked in showdown! zap cannon is now 60.5% accuracy.
so, let me get this straight. Victory star and wise lens both raise accuracy. If wide lens stacks with victory star, then shouldn't it be more than the the boost from just one of them? This answer seems to be wrong, so I will downvote.
If Showdown says, 60.5%, then both boosts are, in fact, applied (50*1.1*1.1=60.5). What do you mean, Polteageist?
I thought wide lens was 10% so shouldn't it be more?
Nope, that's how much 50*1.1*1.1 works out to be? The 10% bump translates to a multiplier of 1.1, I don't think the percentages are additive.

I tested this out with NebbyY (thanks again!), and actually Victory Star does stack with the Wide Lens. I used Focus Blast with Victini, holding a Wide Lens. The accuracy of Focus Blast was 84, which is 70 (Focus Blast’s accuracy) x 1.2, which makes sense because Victory Star and a Wide Lens increase accuracy by 1.1x each.

Victini’s Set

Victini @ Wide Lens
Ability: Victory Star
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Focus Blast

Hope this helps! :)

1.1 * 1.1 = 1.21, not 1.2.
Oh oops.

I’m not very advanced in math :P
It's just pressing buttons on a 4 operation calculator.
