Do you get STAB? Are there any added damage increases from items, abilities, ect when using the two moves? Because the user loses all its HP before the damage is actually done.

Well actually the opponent defenses are halved, so both moves (i don't remember if selfdestruct too) will have double power, you can use items like normal gem or silk scarf to increase a bit more it's power, and if you use it with a lickylicky or any normal poke, it will get STAB

Hope i helped :P

Yes Explosian defiantly does half def but only in gen 4 and below
Fact: Lickylicky is the only Normal-type who can learn Explosion
