Old Discussion

Disuse (formerly Stupid) is the second ability that Mimiroll and Mimilop can have, with the first being Run Away for Mimiroll and Cute Charm for Mimilop. Pokémon with this ability cannot use held items.

Both Items?

Does this affect both your Pokémon and the foe Pokémon? Tesh 09:56, 11 September 2007 (UTC)

I'm not sure, but I'm guessing it's both, otherwise this would be an ability with a negative effect. Anybody else have any thoughts? TESHIGIGAS 13:42, 17 April 2008 (UTC)
Actually, Klutz Is useful because you can attack, then Trick a choice item to an enemy, that royally messes them up. (More fun from the realm of useless knowledge =) ) MidnightCeltic 23:28, 22 June 2008 (UTC)
LOL This ability is totally negative, as it only affects Buneary/Lopunny. It should be useful with Skill Swap, but they can't learn it. hfc2X 21:09, 20 November 2008 (UTC)

Hmm.

What about stuff like the Soothe Bell? Does that take effect? Does it only count in-battle, or outside of it as well? TTEchidna 13:23, 25 September 2009 (UTC)

Life Orb

Should it be mentioned that in D/P/Pt (Not sure about HG/SS), that the Life Orb damage portion will still affect the user with Klutz, but the damage boost will not? I've tricked a Choice Item onto quite a few stat boosting sweepers and obtained life orb, only to take 10% damage using a Return on the switch in. Myzou 11:10, 4 April 2010 (UTC)

This is insignificant

This is just a what if... but what if Klutz only reaped the positive benefits of items? Like choice items increased the respective stats by 50% while not limiting the move choice; and there was no recoil from life orb; but the damage boost still occured? I noticed yesterday I was testing out my Lopunny on random matchup(holding choice scarf) and she used fake out after Mienshao did; which utterly shocked me. Venus253 13:50, 15 May 2012 (UTC)
