The Power items can all be purchased from one of the two shops in the Battle Maison. This is a facility located at the Battle Resort. But you can only access the resort after the Delta Episode, so these items are only available in the post-game.
There are no other ways to acquire Power items other than via the Battle Maison.
When held by a Pokémon, each Power item gives additional EVs after a battle, but it halves the Speed of its holder. Each Power item has a corresponding stat it improves.
You can check the different types of Power items in the table below:
|Power Anklet||16 BP||Speed|
|Power Band||16 BP||Special Defense|
|Power Belt||16 BP||Defense|
|Power Bracer||16 BP||Attack|
|Power Lens||16 BP||Special Attack|
|Power Weight||16 BP||HP|
Getting the Power Items
You can buy the Power items from the Exchange Service Corner in the Battle Maison.
Inside this battle facility, you’ll find two shops from either side – the one on your left will have the Power items in stock.
The Battle Maison is located north of the Battle Resort.
After completing the Delta Episode, you will receive an S.S. Ticket from Norman. The ticket allows you to travel to the Battle Resort aboard the S.S. Tidal from the ports of Slateport City or Lilycove City.
Once you arrive at the Battle Resort and unlock its location, you can fly to it next time without boarding the S.S. Tidal.
Getting to the Battle Maison (Step-by-Step)
Here’s how to find the shop that sells Power items:
Step 1: Starting from the Pokémon Center at the Battle Resort, take the stairs to your right.
Step 2: Once you’re at the top of the staircase, you can find the Battle Maison straight ahead with two columns and a brown front door. Go inside.
Step 3: Inside, you’ll find two staircases leading to the second floor.
Take the stairs to your left.
On the second floor you’ll find a woman behind a counter – she sells all of the Power items.
Note: You can buy unlimited copies of all the Power items.
Obtaining BP for Power Items
Each Power item costs 16 BP.
If you need BP, you can participate in battle challenges in the arena of the Battle Maison. Just go past the curtains in between the two shops.
In the arena, speak to the receptionist to your right (next to the PC) and initiate a battle challenge.
There are 6 Battle Formats you can choose from depending on your preference. Completing a battle challenge will yield 48 BP in total.
How the Power Items Work
The Power Anklet gives an additional 4 Speed EVs whenever its holder gains experience, but it reduces its Speed by 50%.
Additionally, you can use this item when breeding at Pokémon Day Care. A parent holding a Power Anklet will have its Speed IV passed down to the child.
Note: There are two Pokémon Day Cares in Pokémon ORAS; one on Route 117 and one at the Battle Resort.
The Power Band gives an additional 4 Special Defense EVs every battle, but the holder’s Speed stat is reduced by 50%.
Outside of battle, you can also use this item when breeding Pokémon if you want the parent’s Special Defense IV to be passed down to the child.
Note: If both parents hold a Power Band, one of the parents will be selected at random to have its Special Defense IV inherited. This is also applicable to other Power items.
A Pokémon holding a Power Belt will gain an additional 4 Defense EVs after a battle, but its Speed stat is halved.
Tip: All Power items stack with Pokérus – a beneficial virus that doubles the EVs earned by an infected Pokémon.
When breeding Pokémon, you can give this item to one of the parents to have the child inherit its Defense IV.
The Power Bracer grants 4 additional Attack EVs whenever its holder gains experience in battle, but it also reduces the Speed stat by 50%.
Just like other Power items, you can use the Power Bracer when breeding at Pokémon Day Care – if a parent holds this item, its Attack IV will be passed down to the child.
The Power Lens is a held item that gives an additional 4 Special Attack EVs to its holder whenever it gains experience, but its Speed stat will be halved.
Outside of battle, you can use the Power Lens when breeding at Pokémon Day Care if you want a parent’s Special Attack IV to be inherited by the child.
The Power Weight grants 4 additional HP EVs whenever the holder gains experience from battle, but it cuts its Speed stat in half.
When breeding Pokémon, you can give this item to one of the parents if you want its HP IV to be passed down to its child.
Unlike most held items, the Power items aren’t primarily used for combat purposes, but are mostly used in training your Pokémon.
So if you want to raise a Pokémon with powerful stats or specializing in a specific stat, give it a Power item while it is low-leveled and take them to battle for some classic EV training.
