Say I have a Pokémon with the move Guillotine and an ability that boosts the accuracy of moves. How can I increase the accuracy of Guillotine to at least 85? Are there any items that could help, maybe to hold in battle? What about moves to increase accuracy?

So this answer is wrong? Do you want to convert it to a comment?
Opponents that would let you set up 6 Hone Claws are probably vastly underleveled compared to you, and those moves come with an accuracy bonus of 1% per level of advantage you have, which probably contributed something to the results. The accuracy boost from Hone Claws, on the other hand, did not.
Because there's a high likelihood that at least one of them is accurate.
an that helps somewhat
Sure but would like to hear your answer. Edit: It converted to the wrong spot...
@shaggy Answering a question takes it off the unanswered list, which means other people who know the answer are less likely to see this question. So even though it helps somewhat, I think putting it in an answer hurts the question more than it helps.

The Wide Lens

This item boosts the accuracy of a move by 10% of the original accuracy. It is not much, but can make a difference.
For example, if you had the move DynamicPunch, which has 50% accuracy, the Wide Lens would increase that to 55%. If you had the move Hydro Pump, it would increase the move's accuracy by 10% of the base, so the 80% accuracy would become 88%.

The Zoom Lens

This item boosts the accuracy of a move by 20% if the holder moves after the foe. If you're playing Diamond or Pearl, then the holder also gets a boosted critical hit ratio when it moves after the foe. In Platinum, HeartGold and SoulSilver, and Black and White, then the holder does not get the critical hit boost (someone confirm?). In Double and Triple battles, the holder must be the last one to move in order to get the boosted accuracy. This works well on slow but powerful Pokemon, such as Conkeldurr and Slaking.

The X Accuracy

This is a battle item only, which obviously means you can only use it in battle. It increases your accuracy in battle by 1 level, though I'm not sure how much that is. Its effects where off after the battle or when the Pokemon you used it on is switched out. In Pokemon Black and White link battles, there is a special feature that allows you to use items called the Launcher. The Launcher has a few exclusive battle items as well. These are the X Accuracy 2, 3, and 6. These items all boost your accuracy by 2, 3, and 6 levels respectively, but I'm still not sure as to how much that really is.

All credit goes to RedtheLEGEND. I found that they posted this on another question. I thought it would help you on this question.

pretty sure none of those work except X Accuracy, unless that's gen 1 only?
X Accuracy shouldn't even work, according to the oldest comment. That would raise raw stats to move accuracy like other moves would, and we know that won't work already.
