- Lucky Egg
The lucky egg is an item that increases the amount of Experience points your Pokémon gets by 1.5 times. To obtain the lucky egg, you have to catch a wild Chansey that is holding one in the Safari Zone, in FireRed or LeafGreen.
- Soothe Bell
The Soothe Bell increases happiness gain for your Pokémon when worn. This is useful when trying to evolve Pokémon the evolve from happiness (like Espeon and Umbreon) or if you just want your Pokémon to love you. Obtainable at Slateport in the Pokémon Fan Club.
