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

Effect

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, but transfers are not reversed after a wild battle.

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

Generation VI

Bestow will fail if the user is holding a Mega Stone that can Mega Evolve either them or the target.

Description
