Can you Recycle items that were switched with Trick?

The double battle scenario

You have a poke that has Trick/Switcheroo that has a lets say Life Orb that also has Recycle. Your double battle mate has no item. You trick the Life Orb to your teammate so now the poke that had a Life Orb now has no item.

The first question is that now is can the first poke recycle the Life Orb that is tricked to a teammate and if and can both they have a Life Orb?

If the answer to the first question is YES then will you have 2 Life Orbs after battle?

" Recycle allows the user to regain a
single-use held item, such as a Berry,
once it has been consumed, as many
times as it is used. Any requirements
needed to activate the item are still
required once the item has been
recycled. Recycle can recover items
consumed by Bug Bite, Fling, Natural
Gift, and Pluck, but not items lost by
Covet, Knock Off, Switcheroo, Thief,
or Trick. " - Bulbapedia

The Answer is No to both. First off, it can only recover single use items, Like berries ( Life orb is a continuously used item, it doesn't go away after use ) So thats a no, and then to top it off. Recycle can recover items consumed by Bug Bite, Fling, Natural Gift, and Pluck, but not items lost by Covet, Knock Off, Switcheroo, Thief, or Trick.

Dt, how do you make the quote look like that? I still haven't figured out.
Highlight everything you want quoted, then do ctrl+Q. You can also use the button with the quotation mark in the answer section. It's the one to the right of the hyperlink button.
Okay, I see it now. Thanks
shoot i was thinking if i fif it right i could get tons of sitrus berries
I would be doing it with EV reducing Berries if it worked, it would make that job a heck of alot easier.
