Mine has the ability Technician. It is EV trained more in its defensive stats. It knows:

Fake Out: Attacks first, high accuracy, causes flinching, STAb, power boosted by Technician.

Brick Break: Decent power, high accuracy, breaks through Light Screen and Reflect, deals with Rock and Steel types.

Payback: Used to deal with Ghost types, improved by Technician which also helps if Ambipom is attacked first.

Taunt: Stops the foe from using Stat moves.

Ambipom

Technician
Normal Gem
Jolly Nature
252 Attack
252 Speed
4 HP

Fake Out- 40 power but with STAB, Technician, and Normal Gem, the power is 108!
Acrobatics- Fake Out is usually the first move Ambipom will use so technician plus double power for having no item will increase power from 55 to 165! This is also super effective on the fighting types that are super effective on you.
Thief- After using Fake Out, Normal Gem will disappear so you can steal the foe's item while doing good damage.
Double Hit- STAB, Technician, plus Normal Gem if you didn't already use it will give it 94.5 power on each hit which gives you 189 power! If you used Normal Gem , then the power will be 78.75 on each hit which gives a total 157.5 power!

A good move set is

Double-hit

thunder

iron tail

hyper beam

You shouldn't just use all-out powerful moves; they are often bad moves. You should use technique and strategy, like the sets above.
I agree
double-hit - weak
thunder- inaccurate
iron tail- inaccurate
hyper beam- recharge, inaccurate
Less power, more strategy. I agree with Fizzcube.
