    Default Leftovers vs. Black Sludge

    Which is the better held item in your opinion?

    Leftovers:
    Black Sludge:

    Even though Black Sludge can screw someone over if you use Fling while holding it, only Poison-types can use it, so Leftovers win in my opinion.
    Black 2 FC: 2151-5959-1760

    Black Sludge is better for Poison-types. Same amount of HP recovered, but if your opponent steals it, it damages them. Also, if you have multiple tanks in your team, if one of them is Poison-type, the other can have Leftovers.

    I loved Switcherooing/Tricking Black Sludge onto my opponents in the battle tower. >D It was awesome. So I'm the only vote for Black Sludge now. Awesome.
    Signature is a WIP for the moment.
    For now, I have claimed: Mewtwo, Member's Card, Wide Lens, Honey Gather, and Psystrike.

    Leftovers are easier to find, and can be used by every Pokémon.

    Leftovers are better. The Black Sludge held just hurts the pokemon who are not poison type.

    Black Sludge is pretty cool, but Leftovers is more useful in general.

    The winner: tabe no koshi! ("Leftovers" in Japanese romaji.)

    Depends on the pokemon. Poison type, black sludge wins, any other type, leftovers wins.

    Leftovers win.


    Black sludge switcherooing is good in theory, but when facing a flame orb switcherooer, it can lead to a bad situation.

    Black Sludge. It's a great item on Poison-types, and it saved my Weezing several times.

    Leftovers are far more useful, since you can use them on every Pokemon.

    Leftovers. Even if someone steals it with trick, they can trick it to one of your pokemonas well. Black Sludge is only good for Muk and Swalot.

    I'm gonna be different and say Black Sludge. They're more or less the same if used by a sane person. Why is it that no one plays with the Item clause?
