Talk:Frisk (Ability)

You've got it backwards; the English name is Frisk while Serebii's dub name was "Far Sight."


-Jimbo- How do you use this? Or is it that if the wild pokèmon has a held item, I will know inmediatly? -Jimbo-

When you enter battle and the opponent is holding an item, the game'll say 'BANETTE (Or whatever) frisked the foe's XXXX!' or something. :p Tina δ 22:27, 23 December 2007 (UTC)
The exact text is: "(POKéMON) frisked the foe and found one (item)!". In double battles, it doesn't tell you which enemy has which item, and only frisks one of them (without telling you which one, of course). I'm Missingno. Master, and I approve this message. 16:59, 29 July 2008 (UTC)

Usefulness

When combined with Thief, Frisk is useful for seeking out rare items. I know because I tried it out myself. I got a Lucky Egg, 2 Light Balls, and a Metal Coat out of it! SharKing 23:57, 17 August 2008 (UTC)SharKingSharKing 23:57, 17 August 2008 (UTC)
