**Part 54:** Holding Out for Other Held Items

**Side Notes 13: Holding Out for Other Held Items**

Quite a while ago we talked about Pokemon in RSE that held some cool items for you to grab if you could nick 'em and now we're gonna do the same for FRLG. Like before, we're going in National Dex order and we'll even include Pokemon that you can't catch in either game. I dunno why I like writing this stuff, but here we are, let's go!

First up is Butterfree and Beedrill, who have a 5% chance of holding Silverpowder and a Poison Barb, respectively, despite being unobtainable in the wild. There are other ways to get these two items by other wild Pokemon, which we either went over last time, or will go over if it's FRLG exclusive. Raticate has a 50% chance of holding an Oran Berry and a 5% chance of a Sitrus Berry, Fearow has a 5% chance of holding a Sharp Beak and Arbok has a 5% chance of holding a Poison Barb, which is the only legit way of doing so in FRLG. Sandslash has a 5% chance of holding Soft Sand, the only way to obtain it in those games and the Clefairy line has a 5% chance of holding a Moon Stone.

Vulpix and Ninetales have a 50% chance of holding a Rawst Berry, down from 100% in RSE and the Jigglypuff line has a 50% chance of holding an Oran Berry. Paras and Parasect have a 50% chance of holding a Tinymushroom and a 5% chance of holding a Big Mushroom, necessary for the Move Reminder in those games. Venomoth has a 5% chance of holding a Silverpowder, which is the only way to obtain it in those games and Meowth has a 5% chance of holding a Nugget. Growlithe and Arcanine have a 50% chance of holding a Rawst Berry, down from 100% like the Vulpix line. The Abra line has a 5% chance of holding the Twistedspoon, which is the only way to obtain it in those games.

Machoke and Machamp have a 5% chance of holding a Focus Band, which is the only way to obtain it in those games and Graveler and Golem have a 5% chance of holding a Hard Stone. Magneton has a 5% chance of holding a Magnet, which is the only way to obtain that item in those games and CH'DING holds a Stick, which is the only way to obtain that item in Gen 3, as wild Farfetch'd with a 5% chance of holding it aren't encounterable. Dodrio has a 5% chance of holding a Sharp Beak and Seel has a 50% chance of holding an Aspear Berry. Dewgong also holds that, as well as a 5% chance of holding a Nevermeltice, though it can be obtained in FRLG otherwise.

Shellder and Cloyster has a 50% chance of holding a Pearl and a 5% chance of holding a Big Pearl, Haunter and Gengar have a 5% chance of holding a Spell Tag and Onix has a 5% chance of holding a Hard Stone. Cubone and Marowak have a 5% chance of holding a Thick Club and is the only way to obtain that item and Chansey has a 5% chance of holding a Lucky Egg and is the only way to obtain this item. Staryu and Starmie have a 50% chance of holding a Stardust and a 5% chance of a Star Piece, Ditto has a 5% chance of holding a Metal Powder and is the only way to obtain that item in these games. Snorlax has a 100% chance of holding a Chesto Berry, but it might use it before you can catch it. Finally, Dragonair and Dragonite have a 5% chance of holding a Dragon Fang and is the only way to obtain that item in these games.

From Mew onwards, a lot of Pokemon have the same held items as they did in RSE, so refer to that Side Notes for most of the items, though there are exceptions, like Shuckle having a 100% chance of holding a Berry Juice instead of an Oran Berry. Teddiursa and Ursaring have a 50% chance of holding an Oran Berry and a 5% chance of holding a Sitrus Berry. Swinub has a 50% chance of holding an Aspear Berry, while Piloswine also has a 5% chance of holding a Nevermeltice. Skarmory has a 5% chance of holding a Sharp Beak and Porygon2 has a 100% chance of holding an Upgrade. Uh, okay. The remaining Pokemon all have the same held items as they do in RSE.

And there we go, that's a lot of held items. Some can only be found on trainer's Pokemon during rematches, such as the Black Belt found on Black Belt Nob's Machamp in RSE, or on multiple trainers' Pokemon in FRLG, which is the only way to obtain that item and the Silverpowder and Dragon Fang, found on Bug Maniac Jeffrey's Masquerain and Dragon Tamer Nicholas's Shelgon, respectively, though those can be found on wild Pokemon in FRLG. There's also other random items, such as Nuggets on Pokemon owned by Rich Boys and Ladies, or various berries on Gym Leader Pokemon. There's also no Pokemon in FRLG that can't be obtained in those games that has a different hold item compared to RSE. Anyway, that was fun, so see you later.
