Battle Center Discussion #5 - Unloved Items of Gen V
Hey guys, and welcome to the belated fifth instalment of the BCD - the Battle Center's weekly discussion thread for different aspects of the Metagame. New topics will generally be posted
every Wednesdaywhenever I'm not busy, ranging from Pokemon, to moves, abilities, strategies and more. At the end of the week, the old thread will be unstickied, but people are still free to post in it, and a new one will take its place. If you have any suggestions for future discussion topics, post in the thread or PM a Battle Center Moderator.
This week's discussion topic is the many interesting items brought in Gen V that see little use. Air Balloon, Rugged Helmet, Eject Button, Cell Battery and Absorb Bulb seem like they could really have uses, although most of these are rarely used. Life Orb, Lefties and Choice items are quite predictable nowadays and won't make your Pokemon stand out.
