If you were looking for the held items in the Mystery Dungeon series, see Scarf (Mystery Dungeon).
For the held item that boosts the holder's Speed, see Choice Scarf.

Scarves (Japanese: バンダナ bandanna) are a special class of held items that add to the condition of a Pokémon. They will boost the Pokémon's performance in the primary round of a Pokémon Contest, the Visual Competition of a Super Contest, and the Introduction Round of a Contest Spectacular.

In Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, Omega Ruby, and Alpha Sapphire, the Pokémon Fan Club Chairman at Slateport City will give away one of these when first shown a Pokémon with at least 200 points in the scarf's corresponding condition. In Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum, they are given away by the Scarf Guy in Pastoria City for the same reason.
