Power items are like the ev training items that decrease your speed.

Which game are you asking about? What do you want to do with gyro ball? Do you want to battle other people, in-game trainers, or something else?
Sword and shield, and this is for in general for appletun
I meant if iron ball or a power item makes gyro ball stronger, I’ll rephrase the question, that’s on me.

Best answer
  • Iron ball effect: When this item is held by a Pokémon, the holder's Speed is reduced by 50%. If the holder is of the Flying-type or it has the ability; Levitate, it becomes susceptable to Ground-type moves.
  • Power item effect: When this item is held by a Pokémon, the holder's Speed is reduced by 50%. For every battle it has, in addition to the Effort Values gained in the battle, it will gain [8] [stat] Effort Values.

Both items decrease speed by the same amount, so unless you want to train for specific EVs, or you’re using Gyro Ball on a flying/levitate mon, it doesn’t matter which one you use.

Okay thank you so much!
In that case I’ll just use iron ball since it’s easier to get
No problem
