Bestow (Japanese: ギフトパス Gift Pass) is a non-damaging Normal-type move introduced in Generation V.


The user transfers its held item to the target, which can be either an ally or an opponent. It will always fail if the user has no held item or is holding Mail. It also fails if the target already has a held item or is behind a substitute. Items given away in Trainer battles return to the original Pokémon after the battle; however, in wild battles items stay given away.

Bestow cannot be used to give Giratina a Griseous Orb, a Pokémon with Multitype a Plate, or Genesect a Drive.


Games Description
BWB2W2 The user passes its held item to the target when the target isn't holding an item.
