Mechanics
Though most items can be held by a Pokémon, many have no effect while held. [[Key Item]]s and [[HM]]s cannot be held; in Generation IV, only {{p|Giratina}} can hold the [[Griseous Orb]], and [[Apricorn]]s and [[Poké Ball]]s made from them cannot be held; from Generation V onward, [[TM]]s cannot be held. Any other type of item may be held, but [[medicine]] (except [[Berry Juice]]), [[TM]]s, [[evolutionary stone]]s, [[Fossil]]s, [[Repel]]s, [[escape item]]s, [[battle item]]s, [[valuable item]]s, [[exchangeable item]]s, [[Mulch]], [[Flute]]s, and [[Wing]]s have no effect apart from changing the power of {{m|Fling}} and increasing the damage taken from {{m|Knock Off}} (from Generation VI onward). [[Poké Ball]]s have no effect while held and cannot be flung.
