With each new Generation of Pokemon comes a batch of brand-new held items that can boost a Pokemon's battling abilities, enable certain strategies or provide some kind of utility purpose in or out of battle.
Have any ideas for possible new held items? Post them here!
I'll start by sharing two:
Limiter (JP: Limiting Headband)
Effect: Prevents the holder from gaining any EVs.
Sometimes you just don't want a Pokemon to gain any EVs. Maybe you want to keep it as a "blank slate" until you can EV train at the end of the game, or until it's high enough level to EV train itself. In either case, this item is here to help.
Sweet Perfume (Intoxicating Perfume)
Effect: Infatuates opposite-gender Pokemon that strike the holder with contact moves. Consumed after use.
Not an item for serious battles, but an amusing strategy nonetheless.
