When deciding an item to have your Fuecoco, Crocalor, or Skeledirge hold, we like boosting the Pokémon’s strengths more. In most cases, we want to make the offensive power of them even better than they already are.

  • Assault Vest – raises special defense to give you a better chance against enemies that have super effective attacks against you
  • Charcoal – boosts the power of all Fire moves
  • Life Orb – gives you more damage in exchange for taking damage when you hit
  • Metronome – boosts the attack of a move when you use that move on consecutive turns
  • Quick Claw – occasionally will give you the boost to move first even if your speed is lower than the opponent
  • Scope Lens – gives you a better chance to land critical hits on the opponent
  • Spell Tag (Skeledirge only) – boosts the power of all Ghost moves
  • Wise Glasses – boosts the power of all special moves

What held item is best to give to your Fuecoco, Crocalor, or Skeledirge in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet could potentially differ largely on how you have set them up for their moves.
