    Default Whats the deal with the Focus Sash/Band

    Recently got a sash from the battle tower, and my understanding had been that it only works once per battle, yet after the battle the sash was gone, i find it pointless to work up getting battle points for a one time use item.

    Can someone explain what the rules are behind both the sash and the band?
    Thanks in advance!

    For the sash if the Pokémon has full HP and its HP is all gone in one hit, the sash will kick in. It doesn't disappear after use.

    The Band will kick in randomly.

    It could mean the difference between winning and losing in a really important battle.

    But Sash will get ruined if the opponent has Tyranitar/Abomasnow/Hippowdon/Sandstorm/Hail/Spikes.

    a random battle, guessing youll lose it unless your in battle tower or a fight with a real person correct?

    So the Focus Sash disappears after battling a random battle? So that's why mine dissappeared too..

    That is kind of odd though...I mean, it's like a belt. Where does it go? A White Herb or a Berry I understand, the pokemon eats it.

    Seems like they could have found another way to prevent it from being used twice in a battle.

    I'm not sure if it disappears after a random battle, but for it's use, it's used for pokemon who can OHKO faster pokemon, but doesn't have speed for it, it also can be used for Smeargle and/or Ninjask for an extra turn to baton pass more atk/spd, other than that it can OHKO with Counter/Mirror Coat but I don't think this is used much.

    That's weird, you know? Like, they sash goes "poof" and just... vanishes?

    On the other hand, I saw a really cheap combo with the sash on Youtube. Lv. 1 Rattata VS Lv. 100 Empoleon. Empoleon attacks and Rattata hangs on, then uses Endeavor to put Empoleon at 1 HP. Then it uses Quick Attack and KO! TOTAL CHEAPNESS.

    I've seen it for myself... The sash actually disappears. Seen it during a Tower match.

    Yes, so it's best to use it in competitive play or the Tower.
