Can items be 'thieved' continually?

Can I have a Pokemon use thief to obtain an item from a trainer (npc) battle and then defeat that Pokemon and then battle that trainer to thief that same item again and have more than one of that item?

I apologize for the long drawn out question.

Best answer

Thief will steal an item from an NPC permanently in Gens 2-4, but thief will not be permanent in Gen 5. So if you battle somebody that has a Pokemon with a held item, you could thief that held item, and then that person would have the item back, so you could thief it again.

It works as long as the Pokemon using thief has the item it holds in the moment is taken away after battle.

I`ll edit it.
If it isn`t clear still, then I`ll hide it. `Cause that is as clear as I can get.
yeah its ok i guess
I understand your answer and will give you an upvote. Heracross gets the BA because it explains more, not more clearly.
It`s fine by me.(:
