    I wonder if Gym Leaders and E4+Champion would be using held items? In B2W2, Iris had a Druddigon holding a Life Orb and her Haxorus had a Focus Sash. It was pretty impressive that they gave the champion useful held items so they wouldn't be too much of a pushover. Also, I know this is limited to Challenge mode, but the Elite4 also had held items such as Leftovers, Zoom Lens, etc. Even Colress and Ghetsis used held items in their teams (eviolite magneton and life orb hydreigon wtf), so maybe Maxie and Archie could have them as well? If not, then at least I'd like the E4 and Steven to use plenty of held items if possible.

    Very unlikely I'd say. B2W2 seemed to very much be the exception rather than the rule. Even Diantha's Pokemon didn't have held items in XY. So unless challenge mode returns (which I desperately hope it does), I can't see the top trainers using held items.

    While I would love for them to have items, given their latest obsession with simplifying everything, I can't see it happening. It would be a good thing to include imo, because the main game should give you practice for the online play after you finish it, and held items are a very important part of online battling.

    Of course, also because it would make them a little harder to beat too.

    Then again, I would like difficulty levels to return (though not with the dumb method they had in B2W2).

    I never even realized the sheer difference in Iris' team in Challenge Mode. Not only are her Pokemon given items, but their movesets are much more challenging, as well (her Lapras looks like complete hell). I can only dream of ORAS doing something like that.

    In regards to the initial question though, I doubt they'll be given any items if they lacked them originally, unfortunately. Meaning, we will most likely be getting the signature Pokemon holding a Sitrus Berry and not much else, sans the typical Potion spam once they hit the red zone. I surely hope someone over at GAME FREAK is considering a Challenge Mode, though, because I'd love to be able to face a challenge like this BEFORE I beat the main story. Steven's already going to be having his OP Mega Metagross. Just imagine how hard it would be if they gave his regular team helpful items as well.

    Is it legal to say that I truly deslike Sidney's room? geez. Too generic. Too bland!
    Hope it changes in the final version.

    Don't forget everyone that it was Sinnoh where Gym Leader Pokemon items were introduced (aka la Sitrus Berry). I could see that returning for their signature Pokemon, in the very least.

    I am wondering if there will be some version differences in the form of Gym leaders, like B/W had. I do hope there will be some additions to teams to add more Pokemon to their team and they better not cut down on numbers like X/Y.

    I'm really relieved that she's using a Dusknoir hopefully they'll add an extra ice type to the Hoenn Dex so you don't have to fight the same pokemon.
    I'm pretty sure Glacia will use Froslass like Phoebe got Dusknoir!

    I hate how the Elite Four rooms are looking so far. After seeing what they did in Unova, Kalos and even HGSS it's disappointing seeing them essentially go back to 3D versions of the same generic rooms.
