Artwork of Gladion using a memory on his Silvally

A memory (Japanese: メモリ memory), also referred to as a memory drive or memory disc, is a type of held item introduced in Generation VII to work with the Ability RKS System to change the types of Silvally and its Multi-Attack.


List of Memories


Generation VII

In Pokémon Sun and Moon, the player receives all the memory drives from Gladion at Aether Paradise after receiving a Type: Null from him during the post-game. In Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, due to Gladion having temporarily left Alola during the post-game, Type: Null and the memories are instead obtained from Wicke at Ancient Poni Path.

Generation VIII

In Pokémon Sword and Shield, the memory drives are obtained from a League Staff member at the Battle Tower lobby, after receiving a Type: Null from her.
