PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

I taught my Stantler theif and when I did the boss fight with Cheren after I beat the game at Victory Road, I used theif on his Samurott ( which has a focus slash) and after I beat him, my Stantler didn't have the focus slash. (and no she didn't use it up)What happened?! Why don't I have the focus slash?! Please help me! Thanks! :)

Edit: My Stantler wasn't holding an item before, also when I used theif, it said "Stantler took Samurott's focus slash" or something like that.

The Mechanics of Thief changed in Gen V, so now if you use Thief on an NPC's Pokemon, all items are returned after the battle. So you can't get a cheap Focus Sash that way unfortunately.

Oh, well thats was a waste of rare candies, now I only have 8 and I had 17!

Just edited in the source
Thank you
I think it was pretty obvious that you can't steal people's items for ever . . .
Though it would have been nice if you could :)
Yeah pretty nice!
