Flavor Text

The user attacks and steals the target’s held item simultaneously. The user can’t steal anything if it already holds an item.

Effect

If the target is holding an item and the user is not, the user will permanently take the item. If this Pokémon is wild, it cannot steal from a trained Pokémon. Damage is still inflicted if an item cannot be taken.

This move cannot steal a Griseous Orb from Giratina, a Gilded Crown or Wilted Crown from Athlauria, a Plate from a Pokémon with Multitype, a Drive from Genesect, a Mega Stone from its corresponding Pokémon, or anything from a Pokémon with Sticky Hold.

The target cannot recover its item with Recycle.

This move cannot be selected by Assist or Metronome.
