Iron Ball - Uses & Effects
Allows Ground-Type Moves To Hit Flying Pokemon
The Iron Ball, when held by a Pokemon, allows Ground-type moves to hit Flying-type Pokemon. This is useful when having Ground Pokemon face any flying or levitating opponents.
Lowers Pokemon Speed
Having a Pokemon hold an Iron Ball will also decrease its Speed, making it possible for enemy Pokemon to attack first. Make sure that your Pokemon with this item isn't a weak match against the Pokemon they're facing.
