Top Ten Best Pokemon ItemsThis is the most popular items or most used or useful.
The Top Ten
Make a Ferrothorn with the moves Leech Seed, Stealth Rock, Gyro Ball, and Protect and you have a beast! - Pokemonfan10
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.
The best item, especially for complete defensive tanks like: Snorlax, Torkoal, Aggron, etc.
It has saved my "Chara"zarhd so many times I can't even count.V 10 Comments
I didn't even know these existed!
These are awesome! Imagine you're in a 1v1 battle, you're about to lose. But with the boost of the gem, you win the battle!
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.
Items that you can equip on Pokemon idiots
Catches all Pokemon no matter what and never fails, sucks we can only get one - Pastakirby7
The master of catching. How would you play with no pokemon?
I love the Master Ball too much to ever use it. by the way this is a list of items, not held itemsV 4 Comments
I need to level up all of my pokemon at once, and finally, I can kick some ass and get some training done at once.
EXP All is the best though
Totally beast! (sorry about the exclamation marks! )
Yknow that thing that helps you in every pokemon game?V 2 Comments
Healing is the secret to power if you can't die you can't lose
BEST ITEM FOR TRAVELING: fully revives all Pokemon in party

Best item for even leveling
1. Wonder Trade
2. Go to the Poke Miles guy
3. If you have 500 Poke Miles you can get a Rare Candy
4. Profit - RiverClanRocks
Vey useful, If you need to evolve a pokemon, go get yourself a rare candy or two!
Whenever I start a new gen 4 or 5 game I make sure I have a lucky egg. Very useful for training and an overall good item.
It is the best item because it gives you extra EXP
Halves training time, what more do you want for farming levels?
Doubles the EXP of holderV 2 Comments
Tell me if you can have a pokemon without a pokeball
Catch 'em all by chucking things!
Nobody knows how they work!
Why wouldn't they be here you need them to do your journey
Makes mew over powered and the best hm slaves lol
HMs are terrible but, TMs are awesome!
How would you play the game without moves? Also, you don't need to spend *that* much time breeding to get the right Pokemon.
If you count headbutt as a hm and you say it sucks you are so wrong. it has high enough power plus quite high finch chance
Adds 100 base stats to your PKMN, allows a cool new form also.
Perfect for Metagross
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 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.
This needs to be no one like every offensive pokemon holds this
Give any Pokemon with sheer force a life orb, no HP loss after attacking and double boost
Life orb is boss
No... That's my reason nothing else
Why r u still reading this read someing else!
Image you use a rattata vs arceus. Let the arceus attack with judgement but you still alive with this. And then use enduavor to reduce arceus hp as you. The next turn use quick attack to sweep out the arceus
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.
Think you can one shot me think again! MuhahaV 2 Comments
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.
IT IS SO USEFUL IT HEALS ALL STATUS CONDITIONS!
I disagree completely with the below user. Aqua jet is awesome for azumarill with huge power and belly drum. If you don't know what is priority in the metagame then you need to study. Quick claw has no real good competitive use.
Makes any Pokemon occasionally go first. Good for snorlax
Mach punch? Aqua jet? Extreme speed? Switching out? What the hell is priority if you got the 20% chance when you use this.
Also, as far as I know, things like Quick Attack still go faster than a Pokèmon with Quick Claw. I played Emerald and have a Quick Claw Nidorino, and I think a bug-type stil outsped me.
Yes its limited, but it gave a max of 60% boost to use those powerful but limited PP moves again and again. Rare enough as these things are, these things are a godsend to both Competitive and Casual.
Revival herbs are the max revives that you can buy... They are a little sour though...
People are puttin things like mater ball so why not Pokéflute? You can beat some of the games without one
Aka: Zubat or Tentacool repellent
Forget about the money, money, money,
It's all about money, money, money.
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.
For my dragonite who might'ved never reached one-hunnid (hashtag/blessed)
Just the fact that you can get hidden abilties and rare items with this thing made me vote for this
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.
This item is SICK. Doubles Latias or Latios' special
This items is SICK. Doubles lati@s special
Makes latios and latias technically have the best total (1.5x both sp ask and sp def) stats in game, and unlike choice items doesn't restrict you to one move. nerfed heavily in gen 7 though, probably deserved, this is critically underrated
Only useful for aron fear sets so you can spam. No use otherwise, and does not heal enough. However, it is a bit low
Way too low on list
Is this even a item!?!?
It boosts fire type moves lol jk
Allows Pokemon to outsped their adversaries and act as sweepers and revenge killers.
Porygon z + adaptability + choice specs+. Modest nature + 252 evs + 404 special attack one hit k.o machine
Because it does nothing.
Holy crud, this thing is amazing. I sweeped an entire team with a Golem that had this item after all of my other Pokemon were taken down. I didn't even KNOW it had the Weakness Policy.
50% attack increase, allows one move only - great for revenge killers
This is usally used on Pokemon with a status-using attack. This is commonly used with Pokemon like Sabeleye, Politoad, Rotom, etc.
It gives your half exp for your weak or strong!
If it is a ditto, yay. But soul dew is better. And mega evolution can triple or even quatraple attack. Ha.
Huge power mawile is the example
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!
The metal powder only works on Ditto. That's why some wild Dittos hold it. - Fennekin
Boost critical hit ratio allowing moves like slash and night slash to be nearly more than 50% a critical hit.
Super Luck ability + Scope Lens + High critical ratio move = X-BOOM!
All hail Lord Helix! - RiverClanRocks
A B LEFT START UP B SELECT DOWN A START9 ANARCHY
Doubles marowak's physical attack power!
Thick club makes marowak unbelievable strong boosting his attack by x1.5
Without it we would have no Pokemon
It is useful for breading though, it is handy when you need an specific nature whit the good ability
Kinda dumb idea
It stops a Pokemon from evolving.
What kind of pearson would use it!
Because it helps to keep berries alive
Because why not?
Just use Shell Smash and U will see it
