View Full Version : Hold Item Evolution Question

27th April 2007, 8:09 AM
There's something I've wondered about the hold item evolution method since the GSC days. (Say Onix + MetalCoat = Steelix.)

Does the Pokemon keep the item or is it used up during the evolution the way stone evolutions work?
Or to put it another way, could you make multiple Steelix with only one MetalCoat?

My old GSC guide doesn't say what happens to the item and I've never seen that mentioned anywhere. And obviously I've never actually tried it.

You can't use it more times, 1 Metal Coat = 1 Steelix for example.

The evolution item disappears after being used.

Just clone the metal cost before you use it...

The Metal Coat is fused in, so you can't get it back.

Just clone it for more Steelix/Scizor.
