A Drive as seen in the anime

A Drive (Japanese: カセット Cassette) is a type of held item introduced in Generation V, used for changing the type of Genesect's signature move, Techno Blast to the corresponding type of Drive.

In Black, White, Black 2, and White 2, they are obtained by showing Genesect to a certain Scientist at the P2 Laboratory. The Burn Drive and Shock Drive are obtained in Pokémon Black or Black 2, while the Douse Drive and Chill Drive are obtained in Pokémon White or White 2.

In X and Y, the Drives can be obtained by showing Genesect to a Hiker at the Fossil Lab in Ambrette Town. He says that he received the plans for the Drives from an acquaintance of his in Unova and made the Drives from them himself.

In Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, the Drives can be obtained by showing Genesect to a Street Thug on the second floor of Mauville City. He claims that they are rare items that came from the Unova region through some shady market.

List of Drives

In the anime

All of the four Drives appeared in the anime in the movie Genesect and the Legend Awakened, attached to the members of the Genesect Army, with the exception of the Red Genesect. While in the movie it was used with the same purpose of changing the type of Techno Blast, it was also the key item to tell each Genesect apart, with the one holding the Douse Drive having a different personality from its group.

It wasn't shown or mentioned in any point of the movie that Genesect could switch or take off the Drives.
