Pickup (Japanese: ものひろい Picking Up Things) is an ability introduced in Generation III. Ten Pokémon have this ability.

The ability was shown in the anime episode Showdown at Linoone and the Pokémon Diamond and Pearl Adventure manga chapter Find Munchlax!!.

Effect

In battle

Generation III to IV

Pickup has no effect during battle.

Generation V

When an opponent or ally uses a held berry or a held one-time use item, Pokémon with Pickup gain the used berry or item if they are not already holding an item. A Pokémon with Pickup can also gain an item thrown at it using Fling. In double and triple battles if more than one Pokémon have Pick Up, then only the faster Pokémon will pick up used items.

Outside of battle

Pickup allows the player to receive free items. After a battle, any Pokémon on the team that has this ability and is not already holding an item has a 10% chance of picking up an item. It can be retrieved through the normal means of taking a held item.
