Poltergeist deals damage if the target is holding an item, after displaying the message "[target] is about to be attacked by its [item]!" If used when the target is not holding an item, Magic Room is active, or the target's Ability is Klutz, the move fails.
If used on a Pokémon weak to Ghost-type moves holding a Kasib Berry, Red Card, or a Weakness Policy, Poltergeist will still do damage after the item has been consumed, but the item in question still takes effect.
|| The user attacks the target by controlling the target's item. The move fails if the target doesn't have an item.
