| Generation VI
| The Pokémon steals the held item of a Pokémon it hits with a move.
Magician (Japanese: マジシャン Magician) is an Ability introduced in Generation VI. Five Pokémon can have this Ability.
When a Pokémon with Magician hits another Pokémon with a move, it will steal the held item of the Pokémon that it hit. Future Sight and Doom Desire do not activate the Ability.
It cannot steal from a Pokémon with Sticky Hold. It cannot be used to steal a Griseous Orb if either Pokémon is Giratina, a Plate from a Pokémon with Multitype, a Drive if either Pokémon is Genesect, a Mega Stone if either Pokémon can Mega Evolve using it, a Blue Orb if either Pokémon is Kyogre, or a Red Orb if either Pokémon is Groudon.
Outside of battle
It is unknown if Magician has an effect outside of battle.
