all held items and what they do in pokémon scarlet & violet
Screenshot by Pro Game Guides

Whether you’re planning to compete in PvP or not, Held Items can provide a ton of boosts to your Pokémon’s effectiveness in battle. For example, a Pokémon with a Poison Heal ability will gradually restore HP if it’s Poisoned. A Toxic Orb, which badly poisons its user, is good for it.

Plenty of these items are even accessible in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet as early as Levincia. Below is a list of all Held Items in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet, what they do, and where you can find one.
