Top Ten Best Pokemon Items

This is the most popular items or most used or useful.

The Top Ten

1 Elemental Gems

I didn't even know these existed!

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.

2 Leftovers

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.

I don't really need to elaborate on this...

It is good for the beginning and especially at the end of the game. left overs plus ingrain plus leech seed = best thing in the world

6 Lucky Egg

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.

Halves training time, what more do you want for farming levels?

I can't deny it. The items above are awesome. But just think about it. It's time for the elite four and you need to do a lot of training. Training can be a pain and it sucks, as anyone who has played Pokemon has trained and should no this. But then, whala. You open up your bag and hold the shining chansey egg. You hand it to your Pokemon. 3 hour training suddenly becomes 1 and a half hour training. Who can say it is a bad. It's obviously bad for competitive, but if your playg the game or training for whatever reason, it is amazing.

The Contenders

11 Focus 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.

12 Elemental Stones

Here TWICE!?

13 Rocky 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.

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?

14 Life 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.

Give any Pokemon with sheer force a life orb, no HP loss after attacking and double boost

15 Sitrus 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.

16 Lum Berry
17 Quick Claw

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.

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

Makes any Pokemon occasionally go first. Good for snorlax

18 PP Up/PP Max

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.

19 Revival Herb

Revival herbs are the max revives that you can buy... They are a little sour though...

20 Poke Flute

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