Top Ten Best Pokemon Items

The Top Ten
1 Leftovers

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!

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.

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

Make a Ferrothorn have the moves Leech Seed, Stealth Rock, Gyro Ball, and Protect and you have a beast!

2 Master Ball

Catches all Pokemon no matter what and never fails, sucks we can only get one

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

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

1equip on a pokemon
2display your wealth when battling or trading

3 Exp. Share

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.

Totally beast! (sorry about the exclamation marks! )

Yknow that thing that helps you in every pokemon game?

EXP All is the best though

4 Sacred Ash

Healing is the secret to power if you can't die you can't lose

Ash is an items lol

Sacred ash is cool


5 Poké Ball

Why wouldn't they be here you need them to do your journey

Tell me if you can have a pokemon without a pokeball

Catch 'em all by chucking things!
Nobody knows how they work!

6 Rare Candy

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

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

Rare Candies makes pokemon really weak

Best item for even leveling

7 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 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.

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?

It is the best item because it gives you extra EXP

8 Rocky Helmet

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?

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

Perfect for Metagross

9 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.

Life orb is boss
No... That's my reason nothing else
Why r u still reading this read someing else!

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

This needs to be no one like every offensive pokemon holds this

10 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.

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

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.

Think you can one shot me think again! Muhaha

The Contenders
11 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

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.

12 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.

13 Lum Berry


14 PP Up

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.

15 Revival Herb

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

16 Black Sludge
17 Toxic 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.

18 Soul Dew

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

19 Macho Brace
20 Air 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.

21 Max Repel

Aka: Zubat or Tentacool repellent

22 Choice Scarf

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

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

Way too low on list

24 Weakness Policy

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.

25 Choice Band

50% attack increase, allows one move only - great for revenge killers
