The power is also doubled if the Pokémon has no held item. < Which Pokémon? The user or the opponent? Luna Tiger * the Arc Toraph 22:28, 2 October 2010 (UTC)

The user, I suppose, according to the move's Japanese description. Kevzo8 22:44, 2 October 2010 (UTC)

Rename to Acrobatics

Right, the new GamesTM magazine came out in England, and it features a screenshot saying "The wild Pansage used Acrobatics". We've renamed e.g. Mamanbou to Alomomola because Official Nintendo Magazine, and the same should apply here, and be renamed to Acrobatics. MAMOSWINEPwnz!

Can we get a scan of that? Jellotalk 18:42, 19 January 2011 (UTC)
Sorry, but I don't have a good way of getting one. Unless somebody else can do it, we'll just have to wait until March 4th. It's not a major name change anyway. MAMOSWINEPwnz! (TaleOfTheToaster) 18:14, 21 January 2011 (UTC)


Here's an interesting question... If a move such as Acrobatics or Payback receives STAB, does the 1.5x multiplier add to the 2x multiplier or do they multiply? E.g. if Acrobatics receives STAB, will the power be 55*2.5=138 or 50*2*1.5=165? I'd appreciate if someone can help here. Migrant 13:58, 28 February 2011 (UTC)

It would be multiplied, so 165. Pikiwyn talk 14:07, 28 February 2011 (UTC)

Noibat Description

Are we sure it glows blue because it looks green to me. --Dman dustin (talk) 19:59, 21 January 2016 (UTC)

Ash Noviern

Never use Acrobatics yet? I'm been watching it few times never shown to use it at all. Its a mistake --SilverioBOMB (talk) 03:26, 4 March 2016 (UTC)

Watch it again, because it did use it. Playerking95 (talk) 15:58, 4 March 2016 (UTC)
I been watching it and i still dont see it--SilverioBOMB (talk) 03:58, 5 March 2016 (UTC)
What is the time that it did it--SilverioBOMB (talk) 13:53, 5 March 2016 (UTC)
Apparently it's when Noivern's body glows light blue. According to the article anyway. I've not been able to watch that episode yet. Sneaking from page to page... It's the page-editing purple ghost... Gengarzilla! 13:55, 5 March 2016 (UTC)
the only time he glows bluewas the evoultion thats all --SilverioBOMB (talk) 22:39, 5 March 2016 (UTC)
It happens when Noivern destroys those blue laser cords that Team Rocket wrapped around Zapdos. Ash yells out "Acrobatto!" and then Noivern flies toward Zapdos. After that show, Noivern can quickly be seen with a blue glow around its body and shooting past Zapdos. That is when it used Acrobatics. Playerking95 (talk) 00:50, 6 March 2016 (UTC)
He said "Acrobatics!" actually (using the English names), to make for less confusion of what the user above said, it's the Japanese version and that's just how the move name sounds like in Japanese. アクロバット = Akurobatto in katakana based on the characters used to spell the Japanese move name, since each katakana character is a syllable, it's just that Acrobat is the official trademarked romanization used by Game Freak which are what are used here. Katakana is used for words adapted for use in Japanese from another language (in this case, English; which explains why you hear English words on Japanese television sometimes), so he didn't say "Acrobatto!", so he's simply calling out the move Acrobatics in Japanese. -- Pikabu (talk) 02:56, 6 March 2016 (UTC)
Please don't litter this page with a completely unnecessary comment of "your" Japanese knowledge, since I already correctly explained to the user what he needs to know, which is at what moment Noivern uses "Acrobatics". Playerking95 (talk) 13:30, 6 March 2016 (UTC)

How Does Technician Work With Acrobatics?

For example, if a Technician Scizor holding no item uses Acrobatics, would it not receive the 50% boost from its ability? Because if the move doubles in power to 110, then Technician wouldn't work, right?--Rithvikkiran (talk) 17:43, 20 January 2017 (UTC)

Pretty sure I experienced that it does not receive the boost. (And even if I didn't experience it, I'm still pretty sure.) Also see the Effect section of Technician, for example. Nescientist (talk) 12:30, 21 January 2017 (UTC)
