What's a good hold item for Chandelure?

0 votes

This is for my in-game team, and I can't get the Spooky Plate/Flame Plate til post-game in Black/White and gems are one time use only. I'm debating between Charcoal and Wise Glasses (wise glasses raises the power of special moves) (Chandelure would know two fire-type moves and two ghost-type moves, though if more coverage is needed, I'm willing to sacrifice. I was considering replacing one ghost type move with a grass-type now that I think of it).
So...
Charcoal, Wise Glasses, or a separate hold item all together?

Life Orb. This item on Chandelure gives it insane power, while sacrificing health you can gain back through Pain Split (learnt at Level - by Chadelure, relearn at Move Relearner). Here's just how much damage a Level 75 Chandelure with Life Orb can do:

Against Shauntal's Chandelure:

252 SpA Life Orb Chandelure Shadow Ball vs. 0 HP / 0 SpD Chandelure: 315-374 (163.2 - 193.7%) -- guaranteed OHKO

Against Grimsley's Bisharp:

252 SpA Life Orb Chandelure Fire Blast vs. 0 HP / 0 SpD Bisharp: 530-627 (265 - 313.5%) -- guaranteed OHKO

Against Caitlyn's Metagross:

252 SpA Life Orb Chandelure Fire Blast vs. 0 HP / 0 SpD Metagross: 432-510 (194.5 - 229.7%) -- guaranteed OHKO

Against Marshall's Conkeldurr:

252 SpA Life Orb Chandelure Fire Blast vs. 0 HP / 0 SpD Conkeldurr: 282-333 (109.3 - 129%) -- guaranteed OHKO
