A type-enhancing item, when held, enhances the power of attacks with the corresponding type. From Generation IV onward, these items boost the power of moves of the corresponding type by 20%; prior to Generation IV, they give boosts of 10%.

In Johto, several of these items can be obtained from the Week Siblings.

In the anime

The first type-enhancing item to be introduced was Charcoal in A Farfetch'd Tale. Though the significance of Charcoal was explained in detail, and Ash and his friends were given some Charcoal as a gift, its Fire-enhancing properties were not revealed.

A Mystic Water was the prize for winning at the Whirl Cup in The Perfect Match!.

A Dragon Fang appeared in Beauty is Skin Deep as the treasure of Clair's family, kept in Blackthorn Gym. It is the fang of an ancient dragon Pokémon that terrorized Blackthorn City. The Dragon Fang is part of a ritual with the purpose of bringing peace to all Dragon-type Pokémon. The ritual involves the Blackthorn Gym Leader placing it on a special ceremonial table, then pouring water over it, causing a light dragon to burst out of it and rise into the sky. Legend says that this light dragon becomes a star and watches over all Dragon-type Pokémon. Another Dragon Fang appeared in Showdown At Linoone as one of the items Tokin picked up.

A Black Belt and a Twisted Spoon appeared in Climbing the Tower of Success! as items looked for during the Wishing Bell Festival scavenger hunt. A Never-Melt Ice was also looked for, but the boy looking for it only found regular ice.

In SM035, Ash and Mallow found a Miracle Seed in a hollowed-out tree trunk full of Berries in Lush Jungle while collecting ingredients for the "Akala Curry".

In the manga

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

In The Last Battle IV, during the final battle against the Masked Man, Misty, Blaine, and Lt. Surge used Mystic Water, Charcoal, and Magnet to power up the moves of Suicune, Entei, and Raikou, respectively. Notably, the Magnet that appeared was a lodestone rather than a horseshoe magnet as seen in the games, due to the fact that this round was released before the Magnet was given a sprite in the games.

In Vexing Vespiquen & Unmanageable Mothim II, Diamond found a Metal Coat in Byron's vacation home on Iron Island and subsequently gave it to his Shieldon to hold.
