Technician is an ability in the Pokémon games introduced in the Fourth Generation. It boosts the power of a Pokémon's weaker moves.


Technician increases the power of moves with a power of 60 or less by 1.5 multiplier. With moves with variable power, Technician will not apply if the move exceeds 60 power. For instance, moves like Pursuit or Avalanche will not get the additional multiplier if the opponent switches or hits the Pokémon respectively. Low Kick and Grass Knot will only get a boost if the target's weighs 49.9 kg or less. 

Technician does not boost confusion damage.
