===Effect===
When held by a Pokémon, it boosts the Pokémon's {{stat|Special Attack}} by 50%, but only allows the use of the first [[move]] selected. This effect resets when the holder is [[Recall|withdrawn]] or when the item is removed in the absence of {{m|Magic Room}}.
 
====Generation IV====
In {{game|Diamond and Pearl|s}}, due to [[List of glitches in Generation IV#U-turn Choice glitch|a glitch]], if a Pokémon uses {{m|U-turn}} and switches into a Pokémon holding a Choice Band that also knows U-turn, that Pokémon will be locked into U-turn. This was fixed in subsequent games.
 
====Generation V to VI====
From [[Generation V]] onward, if a Pokémon is already locked into a move due to a held Choice Band, if the held Choice Band is removed while its effect is negated, the Pokémon will be affected by the [[Choice item lock glitch]].
 
====Generation VII====
If a Pokémon holding a Choice Band uses a move other than the one it's locked into (such as through {{m|Instruct}} or {{a|Dancer}}), the move will fail and no {{PP}} will be deducted.

==Trivia==
* In [[Generation VII]], if a Pokémon holding a Choice Specs uses a move other than the one it's locked into (such as through {{m|Embargo}} or {{a|Dancer}}), the move will fail and no [[Power Point|PP]] will be consumed.
