Recycle (Japanese: リサイクル Recycle) is a non-damaging Normal-type move introduced in Generation III. It was TM67 in Generation IV.

Effect

Recycle allows the user to regain a held item, such as a Berry, once it has been consumed. Consumed items are not forgotten when the Pokémon is switched out. Recycle can recover items consumed by Bug Bite, Fling, Natural Gift, and Pluck. Recycle will fail if the item is collected by a Pokémon with Pickup.

Recycle cannot restore items that were transferred to another Pokémon (such as via Thief or Bestow), nor items that were negated (such as via Knock Off).

Recycle can recover items consumed that were originally another Pokémon's, but transferred to the Pokémon with Recycle during a battle (such as via Thief or Bestow, or even Pickup). However, a Pokémon may only have one consumed item at a time; if a Pokémon consumes an item, obtains another and consumes it, the original consumed item cannot be restored, even if the second item is restored and transferred to another Pokémon. If the Pokémon that knows Recycle obtains an item after consuming one, it can still use Recycle to restore the old item as long as it has no hold item when using Recycle and did not consume any other items since consuming the old item.

Generation V

Recycle can now be affected by Snatch. Recycle can no longer restore items lost via Bug Bite and Pluck.

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon

Recycle repairs a Used TM to its original state so it can be used again. In Explorers of Time, Darkness, and Sky, it cannot be used on a Used TM that contained Recycle.
