Pickpocket (Japanese: わるいてぐせ Bad Habit) is an Ability introduced in Generation V. Five Pokémon can have this Ability, and it is exclusively obtainable as a Hidden Ability. All Pokémon that can have this Ability are Dark-type Pokémon or evolve into a Dark type.
Whenever an opponent makes contact with the user of Pickpocket, it steals the opponent's held item. It will fail if the user is holding an item or if either Pokémon is behind a Substitute.
