What Are Item Enhancers?
Use To Upgrade Held Items
Using Item Enhancers is one of the ways you can upgrade Held Items in Pokemon Unite. Upgrading lets you increase the passive stat boost provided by your items to your Pokemon during matches. This makes Item Enhancers incredibly useful as they can directly affect your matches.
Only Upgrades Held Items
Unfortunately, Item Enhancers are limited to only upgrading Held Items. It's not possible to upgrade Battle Items in Pokemon Unite.
More Item Enhancers Needed Per Level Up
The more you upgrade a Held Item, the more Item Enhancers you need to use. To get a single Held Item to its max level, more than 2,000 Item Enhancers are required.
Item Enhancers Required Per Level
Get Your Items To Level 20 First
You should prioritize getting your most important items to level 20, as that will ensure you unlock the level 3 effect of the item. Also, leveling one item from 21 to 30 will cost you 2020 Item Enhancers, which is a hefty cost that is hard to justify.
Test It Out First
If you want to see if a Held Item can be part of a viable build, you can use a 7-Day Max-Grade Trial Card. When used, this consumable raises your Held Item temporarily to Level 30 for 7 days. You can use this time to test out builds before deciding to upgrade it with Item Enhancers.
Upgrade To 30 Instantly
It's also possible to instantly upgrade any given item to level 30 by using something called a Super Item Enhancer. You can currently only obtain 3 of these (from events), so you'll have to use them wisely. Check out more information in the article below.Super Item Enhancer - How To Get

Total Number Of Free Item Enhancers
*Numbers are based on September 2021 events.
The total number of free Item Enhancers in the game can vary wildly due to the changing of events. Sometimes, Pokemon Unite doles out Item Enhancers for free when celebrating something. Also note that new events that reward Item Enhancers may come out in the future.
Buy From The Shop
|Price||Aeos Ticket x 10|
Item Enhancers are sold in the Aeos Emporium shop for 10 Aeos Tickets each. There's no limit to how many you can buy - you're only limited by your available currency.
Purchase It With Gems
If you run out of Aeos Tickets and attempt to purchase an Item Enhancer, you'll be prompted to spend Gems to purchase Aeos Tickets. 1 gem will give you 10 tickets, which is equivalent to one Item Enhancer.Microtransactions - In-App Purchases & Paid Items
Complete Events & Missions

Do Held Item Enhancement Support Missions

How To Upgrade Items
Access The Menu
In order for you to use your Item Enhancers, you'll first need to access the Held Items tab. To do this, open the side menu from the Main Menu.
Select "All Held Items"
After being redirected to the Side Menu, select Battle Prep and then the Held Items option.
Choose Which Item You Want To Upgrade
From there you can either upgrade any of the Held Items your Pokemon has equipped or the ones you have in the inventory. Select any one of them to open the Upgrade Menu.
The last thing you'll need to do is to initiate the upgrade! Simply press the upgrade button found at the bottom of the Held Item's upgrade menu. Be careful since Item Enhancers are used up permanently. Make sure you're upgrading the right one!
Which Held Items To Enhance First
The items below are recommended Held Items to upgrade. This is due to them being usable by most Pokemon. Investing in these Held Items can greatly increase your stats during a match.
|Muscle Band||For physical damage dealing Attacker and Speedster Pokemon that rely on auto attacks, the Muscle Band is a must. The attack speed bonus is extremely beneficial for a wide variety of Pokemon.|
|Focus Band||This item can be used by basically any Pokemon, due to the excellent defensive stats it provides. The healing portion of it will likely help you stay alive in many cases!|
|Wise Glasses||This held item is recommended for Special Attackers only! This is a simple overall DPS increase that you can't go without.|
|Buddy Barrier||This item will provide you with HP as well as a powerful shield every time you use your Unite Move. In fact, the shield will also be applied to a nearby ally as well! This item is incredible and can be used on almost any Pokemon, not just Defenders & Supporters!|
