Hold Items are items held by Pokémon during battle to give them (or you) an advantage. Some Pokémon are holding items when you catch one or receive one through a trade. Other items can be found throughout Sinnoh and given to your Pokémon. Please note that all berries can be held by Pokémon and will have an effect, but they will not be covered here.
