    Question How does pickup work?

    Hey all! I just wanted to know exaclty how the pickup ability works. I am right now in the desert looking for a shiny pokemon, with 5 zigzagoons. I occasionally notice that they are holding items. How do they pick them up? Do you just have to walk around? or do you have to encounter a pokemon? and if so, do you have to actually battle the pokemon? I feel like such an idiot for not knowing this.



    I only use all-out offensive moves in battle. If you're one of the people who doesn't waste time with stat moves, then copy and paste this into your signature.

    Basically, you just battle some wild pokemon or trainers, yes beat them, and they should randomly pick it up.

    I think you have a 10% chance of finding an item after battle. You may find items just walking though.

    Pick-Up does not work outside of battle, so you won't randomly pick up items by walking around. You have to get in a battle and knock out the opposing Pokemon. If you run from or catch a wild Pokemon to end the battle, or if you are defeated, Pick-Up will not work. After the battle, there is a chance that any of your Pokemon with the Pick-Up ability will be holding one of the available Pick-Up items.
