Effect

Generation II

Reason: Can wild Pokémon steal the player's Pokémon's held item?.

Thief inflicts damage and steals the target's held item. If the target is not holding an item or the user is already holding an item, Thief cannot steal an item. Thief cannot steal an item if it hits a Pokémon's substitute. Held Mail cannot be stolen.

Thief can permanently steal items from both wild Pokémon and Trainer's Pokémon. In Link Battles, the Battle Tower, and the Trainer House, stolen items are returned at the end of the battle.

Generation III

Please feel free to edit this section to add missing information and complete it.
Reason: Can the Focus Band trigger before being stolen?.

Even if the user faints when using Thief (such as due to the target's Rough Skin), it still steals the target's held item.

An item cannot be stolen if the target has the Sticky Hold Ability. Held e-Reader Berries cannot be stolen.

Wild Pokémon cannot steal the player's Pokémon's held items. In Link Battles, battle facilities (except the Battle Pyramid), and Secret Bases, stolen items are returned at the end of the battle (or the end of the challenge in the case of the Battle Pike). In Pokémon Colosseum and XD, Thief does not permanently steal items.

Generation IV

Items cannot be stolen from Pokémon with the Ability Multitype. A held Griseous Orb cannot be stolen.

If the target's consumable held item is triggered by Thief (such as a Colbur Berry or Focus Sash), it will be consumed before it can be stolen.

Generation V

If the user faints when using Thief (such as due to the target's Rough Skin or Rocky Helmet), it cannot steal the target's held item.

Thief no longer steals a Trainer's Pokémon's items permanently; however, a wild Pokémon's item is still permanently stolen by the player.

Thief can now steal a held Griseous Orb as long as neither the user nor the target is Giratina, and can steal an item other than a Plate from a Pokémon with Multitype. Drives can only be stolen if neither the user nor the target is Genesect.

Generation VI onwards

Thief's power was changed from 40 to 60 and its PP was changed from 10 to 25.

Thief cannot steal a Mega Stone or Orb if either the user or the target could use it to Mega Evolve or undergo Primal Reversion, a Z-Crystal from any Pokémon, or a Memory if either the user or the target is Silvally.
