'''Key items''' are special [[item]]s that players can only obtain once, and either aid the progression of the storyline or allow access to new areas. They rarely have anything to do with the player's {{OBP|Pokémon|species}}, and are mostly specific to the different {{pkmn|games}}. The items cannot be bought or sold at [[Poké Mart]]s, disposed of, or given to Pokémon to hold. Since [[Generation II]], these items have been given their own classification, and have been stored in a separate pocket in the [[Bag]].
==Obtaining key items==
[[Image:key_gen1and2c.jpg|thumb|right|200px|Key items cannot be sold.]]
Key items are generally not found lying on the ground, but are usually obtained throughout the storyline, and are given to the player by other people. Once a player has obtained a key item, there is no way of getting rid of it, unless it is part of the main storyline. For example, the {{key|II|Machine Part}} found in [[Kanto]] in [[Generation II]] as part of the mission to save the [[Power Plant]] could only be removed when the player had taken it back to the Plant and given it to the manager. Some key items, such as the {{key|II|SquirtBottle}}, are not deleted once their usefulness has passed, and remain in the inventory for the remainder of the game. Prior to [[Generation IV]], Key Items can be deposited in a PC.
