'''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 {{OBPmove|Pokémon|species}},Key and are mostly specific to the different {{pkmn|gamesItem}}. 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 keyKey itemsItems==
[[Image:Key Items I and II.png|thumb|right|200px|Key itemsItems cannot be sold.]]
Key itemsItems 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 keyKey itemItem, 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 [[Kanto Power Plant]] could only be removed when the player had taken it back to the Plant and given it to the manager. Some keyKey itemsItems, 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.
 
==Common keyKey itemsItems==
Although many keyKey itemsItems are specific to the version of the game being played, basic items continue to feature:
* '''[[Bicycle]]''' - An item that enables players to travel faster than walking.
* '''[[{{DL|Fishing#|Equipment|Rods]]}}''' - Items that enable players to fish for Pokémon in lakes or the sea.
* '''[[Coin Case]]''' - An item that stores coins for the [[slot machine]]s.
* '''Keys and cards''' - Items that enable players to open doors and access new areas, such as the [[Card Key]].
* '''Tickets''' - Items that enable players to board ships, enter Contests and exchange for other key items.
 
==Exchanging keyKey itemsItems==
The exchanging of one keyKey itemItem for another has been present since [[Generation I]]: a {{key|I|Bike Voucher}} was given to the player to exchange for a [[Bicycle]]. Key itemItem exchanging can only happen once, with the exception of [[Generation III]], in which the player can swap the two bikes (the {{DL|Bicycle|Mach Bike}} and the {{DL|Bicycle|Acro Bike}}) as they choose. In any case, only one or two itemsKey Items could be exchanged.
