In the wild, many Pokémon hold items of their own. Oftentimes it’s a pretty unimportant item, such as a berry you can easily obtain by going to a tree and then cultivating in Poké Pelago.

But other times, the item is a lot rarer, and can be only found by pursuing a specific Pokemon to pluck the item off of them. Worse still, the chance of a Pokemon having the item at all can sometimes sink as low as 5%.
But never fear! There is an easy way to mindlessly farm up many of your favorite items. Just be patient and follow these simple steps.
Step 1 – Preparation¶
The first thing you will need is a Pokemon that knows either Thief or Covet. Thief is a TM and Covet can be learned via Move Tutor. This move enables you to swipe an item off of a Pokemon without having to waste Poké Balls catching a bunch and then manually checking if they hold anything.
Luckily, many Pokémon can learn Thief or Covet. Chances are high you already have something sitting in your PC that needs a bit of leveling up and then is good to go!
The second step to preparation is optional. It is a huge time saver but not necessary if you really can’t accomodate it. That is a Pokémon whose ability is Compound Eyes. This nifty ability increases the chance of a Pokémon holding something.
If a Pokémon has a 50%/5%/1% of holding an item, Compound eyes alters these chances to 60%/20%/5%. As you can see, it’s a huge deal if the item only has a 5% chance of appearing! Lucky for you, Butterfree has Compound Eyes and, better yet, it can learn Thief. Caterpie and Metapod are very easy to find, so go get one!
Note: To Keep Around or Not?
Normally, a Pokémon’s ability will still function if they’re at the front of your party, but fainted. This allows one to field a low Level Pokémon with a useful ability but without having to waste time switching to a stronger one all the time. For instance, when using Synchronize to try and manipulate Nature.
This also applies for Compound Eyes, so you could place a weak, fainted Butterfree in the first slot, while your second, stronger Pokémon uses Thief. However, during S.O.S. battles, there’s a slight catch: your battling Pokémon must have the ability for it to affect summoned allies (since the fainted Pokémon is moved to the back of your party after the battle begins)!
Step 2 – S.O.S.¶
Head to where the Pokémon is located. Want a Razor Claw? Go to Vast Poni Canyon and start hunting for Jangmo-o. Depending on your odds of finding the Pokémon, this can become tedious and frustrating, but you will find them eventually! Consult the table at the bottom of this page for a list of useful rare items that can only be found on wild Pokémon.
Now you will want to start up an S.O.S. battle so that you do not have to find, say, a Jangmo-o, over and over again. Make sure you use False Swipe to increase your chances of the Pokémon calling for help. Do not inflict a status condition or else this will prevent the Pokemon from ever calling. But do use an Adrenaline Orb!
On the turns the Pokémon doesn’t call for help or fails to receive help, go to your Bag and use an Adrenaline Orb again. It does not consume the Orb and will simply cause you to waste a turn so that you can wait until the Pokémon calls for help and succeeds.
