    To answer this question we must determine where the effect resides. The wording of the attack gives us the answer It says
    The key wording is "before applying Weakness and Resistance". That indicates the effect is on the Pokemon attacking, and since Combusken is that Pokemon the effect is on him. Therefore it doesn't matter what happens to the Defending Pokemon, and as long as something does not remove the effect from Combusken (Benching for example) he will do 30 more during your next turn.

    This ruling has been confirmed.
