Accessories (Japanese: アクセサリー Accessory) are a type of item introduced in Generation IV. They are stored in the Fashion Case, along with Backdrops.
Accessories are used in Pokémon Super Contests during the Visual Competition to improve the looks of a Pokémon. The better the Accessories used match to the Contest's theme, the more points are scored in the Visual Competition. Additionally, Pokémon may be dressed up with Accessories and have their pictures taken at Jubilife TV in Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum or at the Goldenrod Tunnel in HeartGold and SoulSilver. In Platinum, HeartGold, and SoulSilver, the Pokémon's corresponding Diamond and Pearl sprite is used so that the picture can be displayed in Diamond and Pearl when records are mixed.
The Generation V equivalent is Props, which are used in the Pokémon Musical. They also are put on different parts of the Pokémon like the Pokémon's head, arms, face, body, and ears.

In the anime
In the anime, Pokémon are not dressed up with Accessories during Pokémon Contests. Instead, Accessories are designed by Pokémon Stylists and used in competitions such as the Hearthome Collection, an event in which entrants model their Pokémon in original designs.
Accessories designed by Stylists were first featured in The Bells Are Singing! in an issue of the Poké Chic magazine that Dawn was reading. Later, Dawn was revealed to have designed a vest with a heart stamp for her Buneary to wear. Buneary would be seen wearing the vest in many future episodes, but since Coordinators do not dress up their Pokémon for Pokémon Contests, the vest is taken off before Buneary enters the stage.
In Arriving in Style!, Dawn, Ash, and Jessilina entered the Hearthome Collection with Buneary, Pikachu, and Wobbuffet, respectively. Dawn and Ash designed the outfits worn by their Pokémon, while James crafted the Accessories worn by Wobbuffet. In the end, Dawn and Buneary were declared the winners of the competition, defeating renowned Poké Stylist Cocoa and her Mismagius in the process.
In Battling The Generation Gap!, Ash, Dawn, and Brock visited Lila's store in Celestic Town. Lila allowed the group's Pokémon to pick out some Accessories free of charge.
In the manga
Diamond & Pearl chapter
Accessories were first featured in Boogying with Buneary. Keira gave Pearl a jar of Glitter Powder following a minor incident involving her Buneary. The next day, as part of Platinum's preparations for her upcoming Super Contest, Platinum dressed the Pokédex holder trio's Pokémon in different kinds of Accessories she borrowed from her boutique somewhere in Hearthome City.
Various accessories were shown, where her Prinplup wore Red Barrette and Silk Veil, also wearing Pretty Dewdrop, Humming Note, and Flag during the contest. Her Ponyta meanwhile wore Mystic Fire and Pink Balloons. Tru wore Black Moustache, Confetti, and Top Hat, Lax wore Gorgeous Specs and Flag, Chimler wore Fluffs, Heroic Headband, Colored Parasol, and Chatler wore White Beard, Googly Specs, and Professor Hat. A Buneary was also seen wearing Thick Mushrooms and Pretty Dewdrops in Pearl's fantasy.
In Perturbed by Pachirisu, other Super Contest participants disorganized Platinum's Fashion Case just before the Visual Competition. However, using the Glitter Powder received from Pearl and several other Accessories, she was able to dress up her Prinplup before the 60-second time limit ran out.
