With Gen V came some awesome Dream World abilities, and one of the best is probably Sheer Force. If a move has a secondary effect, Sheer Force boosts its power by 30% and takes away the second effect. You may think not having the second effect can be bad, but it has an awesome side effect. It removes Life Orb damage, while keeping the power boost.

1. Get a Life Orb and a Pokemon that has all attacking moves with secondary effects (list here.)

2. Give the Pokemon the Life Orb, and attack as much as you want without worrying about 10% damage every turn.

I thought of posting this after The Killer Nacho mentioned it in one of his YouTube videos.

    Yeah, Nidoking is perhaps the most hyped-up user of Sheer Force, thanks to its massive movepool filled with powerful moves containing secondary effects, most notably Earth Power (STAB), Thunderbolt, Ice Beam, and either Flamethrower or Fire Blast (your choice). Sheer Force and Life Orb together give these moves a total boost of 69%.

    That is exactly what The Killer Nacho used: Nidoking with Thunderbolt, Ice Beam, Flamethrower, and Earth Power.
