Revision as of 21:05, 21 July 2012

A type-enhancing item, when held, enhances the power of attacks with the corresponding type. As of Generation IV, these items boost attacks by 20%; in previous generations, they only boost attacks by 10%.

If these items are sold, Poké Marts will pay PokémonDollar.png50 for them with the exception of Charcoal, for which Poké Marts will pay PokémonDollar.png4,900.

In Johto, several of these items can be obtained from the Week Siblings.

Please feel free to edit this section to add missing information and complete it.
Reason: images of Charcoal, Mystic Water.

The first type-enhancing item to be introduced was Charcoal in A Farfetch'd Tale. Though the significance of Charcoal is explained in detail, and Ash and his friends are given Charcoal as a gift, its Fire-enhancing properties are not revealed.

A Mystic Water was the prize for winning at the Whirl Cup.

A Dragon Fang appeared in Beauty is Skin Deep as the treasure of Clair's family, kept in Blackthorn Gym. It is the fang of an ancient dragon Pokémon that terrorised Blackthorn City. The Dragon Fang is part of a ritual with the purpose of bringing peace to all Dragon-type Pokémon. The ritual involves the Blackthorn Gym Leader placing in on a special ceremonial table, then pouring water over it, causing a light dragon to burst out of it and rise into the sky. Legend says that this light dragon becomes a star and watches over all Dragon-type Pokémon. Another Dragon Fang appeared in Showdown At Linoone as one of the items Tokin picked up.

Flannery gave a Charcoal to her Torkoal in Going, Going, Yawn.

Several type-enhancing items appeared in Climbing the Tower of Success!, such as a Black Belt and a TwistedSpoon.

Trivia

  • In Generation II, there was one item that would power up each type, with the exception of the Normal type, which had both the Pink Bow and Polkadot Bow. In Generation IV, this is reversed, where each type powered up by one of the items as well as by a plate, except the Normal type.
    • However, some types have even more than this, due to incenses.
  • Charcoal is the only item available for purchase in a regular store. Some other type-enhancing items can be purchased, but only from Game Corners.
