Stat-enhancing items are held items that affect a particular stat of a Pokémon. These items have effects only when used on certain species of Pokémon and will have no effect on any others.

|Deep Sea Scale||Deep Sea Tooth||Eviolite||Leek||Light Ball|
|Lucky Punch||Metal Powder||Quick Powder||Soul Dew||Thick Club|
In the anime
- The Rare Bone and Thick Club share the same Bag sprite.
- Because Pikachu cannot be found in the wild in Unova, Thief and similar moves no longer permanently steal items held by trained Pokémon, and Poké Transfer prohibits the import of held items, the Light Ball cannot be obtained in Generation V outside of events.
- Because of changes to critical hits in Generation VI, Farfetch'd will always get a critical hit when using moves with a boosted critical hit ratio and holding the Leek.
- Eviolite's Japanese name contains a pun; しんかのきせき Shinka no Kiseki can also be taken to mean "Miracle of Evolution".
