This article is about the EV-increasing items. For other uses, see Feather (disambiguation).

A Feather (Japanese: ハネ feather), known as a Wing prior to Generation VIII, is a type of item introduced in Generation V. They are used to boost the stats of a Trainer's Pokémon, except the Pretty Feather, which is instead a valuable item.

In the games


The first six Feathers each provide one effort value (EV) in a particular stat. This consumes the Feather.

Unlike vitamins, which prior to Generation VIII cannot be used if the Pokémon already has more than 100 EVs in that stat, Feathers can be used until the Pokémon had the maximum number of EVs in that stat or cannot receive any additional EVs.

The seventh feather, the Pretty Feather, has no functional use. Its only purpose is to be sold.


In Generation V, they can be found in Flying Pokémon's shadows on the Driftveil Drawbridge and Marvelous Bridge, or as rewards for earning low ranks in the Battle Institute or clearing areas in Black Tower/White Treehollow.

In Generation VI, they can be obtained from Super Secret Training. They could also be obtained from the PokéMileage Club minigame, Graffiti Eraser.

In Generation VII, they can occasionally be dropped by certain Pokémon found in ambush encounters.

In Pokémon Sword and Shield, they can be found on bridges, on Route 5, in Motostoke Outskirts. In the Expansion Pass, they can also be found in the Isle of Armor's Honeycalm Sea and the Crown Tundra's Frigid Sea.

In Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, they can be found as sparkling overworld items on the surface of Casseroya Lake.

In Mr. Perfect, Magician gave Blake a pack of wings he had requested from him. In Innocent Scientist, Blake revealed that he had given a Resist Wing and Rare Candy to his Dewott just before heading to battle Genesect, boosting his defenses just enough for him to be able to survive an Electric-type Techno Blast.
