    No, I don't mean hold items. X. Speed, Dire Hit, Guard Spec and so on, they're Pokémon's answer to temporary status boosts.

    Have you used any out of the eight battle items? Have you ever used their Wonder Launcher versions? Do you think that there'll eventually be a battle item that boosts the evasion stat? Discuss!

    Not once have I used any of them as they have no use in competitive gameplay. I always sweep through the games so there was never a reason to use them.

    These items make you lose 1 turn..If you know a little about the game...losing a turn is not a good idea xD

    Yes yes yes yes yes!

    No, they aren't particularly useful in regular, good-old play, but the X-Stat items are incredibly useful in the speedrunning community. I love them to pieces.

    I've used to use them a lot when I was a kid, but now, I don't really.
    Don't get me wrong. They really do help and it's a little OP, but it's pretty inconvenient to use since I can usually go through the game just fine without.

    I use them conditionally. If I have a lot of health and I know I have to tank a few rounds with my Pokémon, I'll use the X-items to boost it up. I don't really use them outside of emeergencies though, and generally end up just selling them to squeeze out some more early game money.

    I only use these when I have a reason to waste a turn xD I don't really like them, but they can help you from time to time.

    I choose to rely on how I raised my Pokémon before I use these items. I have used them once or twice in tough positions. I think they cost too much for such a small effect.

    I use them... In Pokémarts... To get more money... To buy things that are actually useful... Yeah, I never used those items in-battle.

    I carry those items in my bag, but I never use them :P They're good just in case of emergencies, I guess.

    I often pick them up around the place, but don't get much use out of them. However, if you're catching a stat buffing legend...

    Like, for example, Rayquaza from ORAS, it knows Dragon Dance. Those X Defends I had came in mighty handy.
