Obtaining items: Maybe a See Also section would work better, but that page should not be orphaned with its only link being on Bulbapedia:Lists
[[File:Colo Item Chest.png|right|frame|An item chest from {{g|Colosseum}}]]
Items are obtained in several different ways. They can be given to the {{player}} by characters within the game, be bought at a [[Poké Mart]] for money, or found by the player throughout the [[Pokémon world]]. The latter form of items are contained within item balls, spherical containers resembling a [[Poké Ball]]. To obtain the item, players move next to it and press A while facing it. In [[Pokémon Colosseum]] and [[Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness]], many items are found in treasure chests modeled after Poké Balls; in addition, items are often found in bulk from these chests, rather than only singular. Another method introduced in [[Generation II]] is picking [[Berry|Berries]] off a Berry tree. [[Join Avenue]] was introduced in {{game|Black and White|s|4=2}}, allowing players to buy certain items in bulk, as well as Berries and some rare items. Pokémon encountered in the wild will sometimes be holding items, which can be obtained by catching them using a [[Poké Ball]] or by using either {{m|Trick}}, {{m|Thief}}, {{m|Switcheroo}}, or {{m|Covet}}. Also, in certain areas in [[Generation VI]], [[Natural objects|various scenery]] will appear in the background during some battles. Using specific [[moves]], depending on the kind of scenery, will break the scenery and cause an item to be found at the end of the battle, with the message "<player> found a <item> in the aftermath."
 
Most items can be obtained at any time, but there are a small number of [[permanently missable items]] in some games that become unobtainable after the player has progressed beyond a certain point.
