Bestow (Japanese: ギフトパス Gift Pass) is a non-damaging Normal-type move introduced in Generation V.
The user transfers its held item to the target. It will always fail if the user has no held item or is holding Mail. It also fails if the target already has a held item or is behind a substitute. Bestow bypasses accuracy checks to always hit, unless the opponent is in the semi-invulnerable turn of a move such as Dig or Fly.
Items given away in Trainer battles return to the original Pokémon after the battle, but transfers are not reversed after a wild battle.
Bestow will fail if it would give to (the target) or take from (the user): Giratina a Griseous Orb, a Pokémon with Multitype a Plate, Genesect a Drive, or a Pokémon its corresponding Mega Stone.
| The user passes its held item to the target when the target isn't holding an item.
