It appears that Covet is a variation of Thief. --Alex S. 01:59, 3 February 2009 (UTC)

- Really? The move description here has no mention that Covet will fail to steal the target's item, which Thief has.
Thief/Covet non-"Damaging Moves"?
So apparently, for the purposes of Me First, Covet and Thief are non-damaging moves--presumably this has something to do with how the "steals item" effect is coded? Experimentally proven in B&W, though not necessarily in other gens. Anyone know if any other moves share this quirk? Harumei (talk) 16:46, 24 August 2015 (UTC)
Does it really not steal items? It works like it should in Colo's Battle Mode, as does Thief. Most Pokémon in these games don't have items (I think?), and the few that I can recall having one are Shadow... How about checking whether it's true with Trick? Eridanus (talk) 21:37, 23 December 2015 (UTC)
