Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

When does the ability Pickup activate?

1 vote

I'm wondering whether or not Pickup activates for these things:

  • Wild Battles
  • Friend Safari
  • Battle Chateau
  • Trainer Battles
  • Battle Masion
  • Wifi Battles

It would be great if anyone could tell me whether or not it activates for each one.

Oh, and by the way, I mean the "Outside of Battle" from Pickup's page, not the in-battle one.

It activates for all of them, but you cannot keep the items in Battle Maison, Trainer Battles (Battle Château is the same thing) and WiFi Battles.

That's too bad (esp. the trainer battles).  Thanks!
I had to undo the BA because this answer is wrong.  I tested and found out that you can keep items from trainer battles/battle chateau.

Pick up does pick up items that the other Pokemon is holding, it will not pick-up items in wifi battles or trainer battles. Only in wild- Pokemon appear battles. Pick-up could be destroy by these moves:

  • Bug bite
    -Knock OFf
    -pluck
    -incinerate
  • a popped air ballon cannot be picked up
