***The STAB boosts the Base Power from 250 to 375, Silk Scarf further boosts it to 412.5, and i don't know how that translates into actual battle damage, but 412.5 BP sounds brill to me. Though a Blaze/Overgrowth Fire/Grass Type with Overheat/Leaf Storm and a Charcoal/Miracle Seed does more I think... like 600+ or something.
