Permanently missable items

From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of items in the Pokémon games that can be permanently missed.

This page does not include items that are missed by choosing another item (such as mutually exclusive Fossils), items missable due to using glitches, nor event items. Furthermore, items that can no longer be obtained after the internal battery of Ruby, Sapphire, or Emerald runs dry are also excluded.

S.S. Anne

Port

This item can only be obtained if Surf is used while the S.S. Anne is still in the port. Once the S.S. Anne leaves the player cannot access the area in which Surf must be used again.
