The Top Ten

The leftovers is used by a LOT of Pokemon, but more specificly tank Pokemon, so they use protect and slowly work their way back to full health.
I don't really need to elaborate on this...
I love leftovers because it could help you get your Pokemon suddenly back to full health! I did it on my dsi before. Trust me!

2Master Ball
The master of catching. How would you play with no pokemon?
Catches all Pokemon no matter what and never fails, sucks we can only get one


3Elemental Gems
There are so many of the gems being used right now (Fighting gem+Hitmontop, Dragon gem+Latios, Flying gem+Scizor/Arcehops etc), that it HAS to be the third most used.

4Life Orb
The Life Orb is a sacrifical item. You deal more damage to an opponent, but you lose a small amount of damage in the process. These are oftenly given to Pokemon that know recoil damage-moves, like Brave Bird, Flare Blitz, Volt Tackle, etc. I dunno why, it just adds on more damage.

5Sacred Ash
BEST ITEM FOR TRAVELING: fully revives all Pokemon in party
Healing is the secret to power if you can't die you can't lose
Sacred ash is cool

6Focus Sash
Many players use this for Garchomp because of it's x4 ice type weakness. But dragon-types aren't the only ones-Tyranitar can get wrecked with one close combat, aura sphere, hi jump kick, focus punch etc, so the sash really helps.
Great for Shednija, who basically Invented the term glass canon. Gives you a warning to when opponents will hurt it so you can switch out. Also, for FEAR rattatas.

7EXP Share
As If Pokemon Training Was Hard Enough But Without The EXP Share You Would Lose A Lot Of Levels And Time


9TM/HM Moves

10Rocky Helmet
I love giving it to my Skarmory. It is already bulky and not a very good attacker. this adds on extra damage, so I don't have to attack as much.
I love giving this to my ferrothorn
This item is commonly used with a Ferrothorn so it adds up with it's Iron Barbs ability so it racks up a TON of damage. I once saw a video of a guy who used his Blaziken agianst a Ferrothorn and the Ferrothorn used this tactic. The Blaziken had a Life Orb and used Flare Blitz. Ferrothron went down, Blaziken was red-barred. Says a lot, doesn't it?

The Contenders

11Sitrus Berry
This is a VERY commonly used item for it's one use:health. Isn't that what keeps your Pokemon alive? You know, besides the stat-boosts. BUT, if you loose your HP, you die, so HP keeps you alive.

12Elemental Stones
How Can You Get A Poliwrath!?!?!?! Well Just Use A Water Stone And There You Go!

13Rare Candy
Vey useful, If you need to evolve a pokemon, go get yourself a rare candy or two!

14Max Repel

15Mega Evolution Stones
Megas Can Be Very Powerful And When Your Opponent Dosen't Expect You Can Change Your Type Like From Water Flying On Gyrados To Water Dragon!

16Lum Berry


18Rare Candies

19Lucky Egg

20Quick Claw
Mach punch? Aqua jet? Extreme speed? Switching out? What the hell is priority if you got the 20% chance when you use this.

21Black Sludge
The Black Sludge is one the BEST items EVER. With Pokemon like Drapion, Gengar, Muk, and Weezing, the Black Sludge is AWESOME! It only heals poison-types, so if someone tries the old trick-while-holding-a-terrible-item trick, than THIS will come in handy. And it's not just because it only heals poison-types;it damages those who aren't. It is AMAZING. It gives me a reason to use poison-types.

22Toxic/Flame Orb
These two orbs can be very useful. The toxic orb is most commonly used with a Breloom or Gliscor do to their Poison Heal ability, or with a Snorlax with it's Immunity ability (Which prevents him from being poisoned. ) and then by using Fling, it poisons the other Pokemon. The Flame Orb is commonly used with a Conkeldurr for it's Guts ability, maximizing it's attack, but with a small price of health.
You forgot to mention Clefable with its magic guard ability. Facade is like a hyper beam without taking damage from poison and it also protects you from other status abilities.

23Silph Scope

24Super Rod

25Ultra Ball

Just the fact that you can get hidden abilties and rare items with this thing made me vote for this

27Air Balloon
This is most used with Pokemon like Jolteon, Electivire, Heatran, Empoleon... You get the idea. Pokemon weak against ground-type moves. However, I persoanlly prefer the Shuca Berry, because they'll just pop your balloon and finish it with earth power or something.

28Macho Brace


30Eject Button
This is usally used on Pokemon with a status-using attack. This is commonly used with Pokemon like Sabeleye, Politoad, Rotom, etc.

31Exp Shard
It gives your half exp for your weak or strong!

32Soul Dew
This item is SICK. Doubles Latias or Latios' special
This items is SICK. Doubles lati@s special

33Poke Flute
People are puttin things like mater ball so why not Pokéflute? You can beat some of the games without one

34Shell Bell
Way too low on list

35Thick Club

36Sacred Fire
Is this even a item!?!?

37Choice Scarf
Allows Pokemon to outsped their adversaries and act as sweepers and revenge killers.

38Azure Flute

39Revival Herb

40Premier Ball

41Metal Powder
This item is EXTREMELY underrated, as it makes sense because lots of people don't know about this items which you can only get it from a wild ditto from emerald only less than 20% roughy of finding a ditto with it. The effect of this item is arguelably the best held item: it DOUBLES A PokemonS DEFENSE WHEN HELD!

42Scope Lens
Boost critical hit ratio allowing moves like slash and night slash to be nearly more than 50% a critical hit.

43Helix Fossil

44Heal Ball
