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.
