Single-crystal XRD is normally more sensitive to weak reflections than powders. However, conformation is still needed when we conclude a weak forbidden reflection, because λ/2 contamination of the X-ray source and multiple diffraction effect are usually unavoidable, e.g. for inorganic single crystals.
