The Top Ten
1 Leftovers

Leftovers basically make any tank with Protect or any similar move invincible. The only time I wouldn't use it is with Gliscor because of the Toxic Orb + Poison Heal or Black Sludge Pokémon. Then again, this is just so other Pokémon on my team can use the Leftovers.

I love Leftovers because it could help you get your Pokémon suddenly back to full health! I did it on my DSi before. Trust me!

The Leftovers is used by a LOT of Pokémon, but more specifically tank Pokémon, so they use Protect and slowly work their way back to full health.

2 Master Ball

The master of catching. How would you play with no Pokémon?

I love the Master Ball too much to ever use it. By the way, this is a list of items, not held items.

Catches all Pokémon no matter what and never fails. It sucks we can only get one.

3 Exp. Share

I need to level up all of my Pokémon at once, and finally, I can kick some ass and get some training done at once.

4 Sacred Ash
5 Rare Candy

Very useful. If you need to evolve a Pokémon, go get yourself a Rare Candy or two!

6 Lucky Egg

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, as anyone who has played Pokémon knows this.

But then, voila. You open up your bag and hold the shining Chansey Egg. You hand it to your Pokémon. Three-hour training suddenly becomes one and a half-hour training. Who can say it is bad? It's obviously bad for competitive play, but if you're playing the game or training for whatever reason, it is amazing.

7 Poké Ball
8 Rocky Helmet

This item is commonly used with a Ferrothorn so it adds up with its Iron Barbs ability to rack up a TON of damage. I once saw a video of a guy who used his Blaziken against a Ferrothorn, and the Ferrothorn used this tactic. The Blaziken had a Life Orb and used Flare Blitz. Ferrothorn went down, and Blaziken was red-barred. Says a lot, doesn't it?

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.

9 Life Orb

The Life Orb is a sacrificial item. You deal more damage to an opponent, but you lose a small amount of health in the process. These are often given to Pokémon 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 number one. Like, every offensive Pokémon holds this.

10 Focus Sash

Many players use this for Garchomp because of its 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 Shedinja, who basically invented the term glass cannon. Gives you a warning when opponents will hurt it so you can switch out. Also, for FEAR Rattatas.

Imagine you use a Rattata vs. Arceus. Let the Arceus attack with Judgement, but you still survive with this. Then use Endeavor to reduce Arceus's HP as yours. The next turn, use Quick Attack to sweep out the Arceus.

The Contenders
11 Sitrus Berry

This is a VERY commonly used item for its one use: health. Isn't that what keeps your Pokémon alive? You know, besides the stat-boosts. BUT, if you lose your HP, you die, so HP keeps you alive.

12 Lum Berry
13 Quick Claw

Mach Punch? Aqua Jet? Extreme Speed? Switching out? What the hell is priority if you got the 20% chance when you use this?

14 PP Up

Yes, it's limited, but it gives a max of 60% boost to use those powerful but limited PP moves again and again. Rare enough as these things are, they are a godsend to both competitive and casual players.

15 Revival Herb

Revival Herbs are the Max Revives that you can buy. They are a little sour, though.

16 Black Sludge

The Black Sludge is one of the BEST items EVER. With Pokémon 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, then 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.

17 Max Repel
18 Toxic Orb

These two orbs can be very useful. The Toxic Orb is most commonly used with a Breloom or Gliscor due to their Poison Heal ability, or with a Snorlax with its Immunity ability (which prevents him from being poisoned). By using Fling, it poisons the other Pokémon.

The Flame Orb is commonly used with a Conkeldurr for its Guts ability, maximizing its attack but with a small price of health.

19 Soul Dew
20 Macho Brace
21 Air Balloon
22 Choice Scarf

Amazing for getting off certain setups not otherwise possible due to lack of speed. AKA Lanturn Soak so Zapdos can Discharge and hit super effectively on non-effective Pokémon in doubles.

Allows Pokémon to outspeed their adversaries and act as sweepers and revenge killers.

Porygon-Z + Adaptability + Choice Specs + Modest Nature + 252 EVs + 404 Special Attack = one-hit KO machine.

23 Shell Bell

Only useful for Aron FEAR sets so you can spam. No use otherwise, and does not heal enough. However, it is a bit low.

24 Weakness Policy

Holy crud, this thing is amazing. I swept an entire team with a Golem that had this item after all of my other Pokémon were taken down. I didn't even KNOW it had the Weakness Policy.
