Type-enhancing items, when held, will enhance the potency of attacks that correspond to the item by 10%. For example, if a Pokémon holds Mystic Water and uses a Water-type attack, the power of the Water-type attack will be increased by 10%. In D/P, this was changed to 20%.

If these items are sold, Poké Marts will pay PokémonDollar.png50 for them with the exception of Charcoal, for which Poké Marts will pay PokémonDollar.png4,900, and the Adamant/Lustrous Orbs for which Poké Marts will offer PokémonDollar.png5,000.

In Generation II, several of these items can only be obtained from the Week Siblings.

  • In Generation II, there was one item that would power up each type, with the exception of the Template:Type2, which had the Pink Bow and Polkadot Bow. In Generation IV, this is reversed, with each type powered up by one of the items as well as by a plate. The Normal-type is the exception here, as well, as there is no plate which boosts the power of Normal-type moves.
  • The Spell Tag looks similar to Dusclops' face.
