Azumarill's Recommended Held Items
Best Held Items For Attacker-Type Pokemon
Mainly Focus On DMG
Attackers are the main source of damage for the team, but are somewhat limited when it comes to other stats. They also often require the support and assistance of other teammates to effectively do what they need to do.
Can Be Weak Against Ambush
Attackers rarely have high mobility & are vulnerable when ambushed, especially when the enemy Pokemon has access to crowd control. Attackers should have good map awareness and know when to bail to avoid getting taken down.All Attackers List Details
Best Held Items For Defender-Type Pokemon
Pokemon With Tons Of HP & Defense
Defenders are bulky Pokemon with a high endurance stat that allows them to take a substantial beating. They can bear the heavier attacks of tough Wild Pokemon, and can secure precious seconds for the team to set up an attack during teamfights.
Good At Stopping Enemies From Scoring
Defenders can sometimes hold a lane alone & prevent their opponents from scoring through harassment & crowd control. Strategic placement on the part of a defender can sometimes force opponents into the dilemma of wasting precious resources by trying to fight off an opponent that was designed to take damage.All Defenders List Details

|Absol||Scope Lens||Razor Claw||Float Stone|
|Gengar||Choice Specs||Wise Glasses||Shell Bell|
|Zeraora||Muscle Band||Buddy Barrier||Focus Band|
|Talonflame||Score Shield||Buddy Barrier||Attack Weight|
A Speedy Assassin
Speedsters take on the assassin / jungler role, often moving independently for the chance to steal enemy Wild Pokemon or harass lone enemy Pokemon. They come with a very high attack & speed to move around easily, but are vulnerable if cornered.
Vital To Get Strong In The Current Meta
Speedsters, if fed correctly, can be one of the most powerful Pokemon in the game (particularly Absol and Talonflame). It may be prudent to try to feed your Speedster, while doing all you can to harass the enemy team to avoid having their Speedster become unstoppable.All Speedsters List Details
Best Held Items For All-Rounder Pokemon
Have A Multipurpose Role
All-Rounder Pokemon can act as an Attacker or Defender depending on which type is needed in the match. They can deal decent damage and take a beating at the same time. They are also flexible and can adjust quickly depending on which will be needed in each situation.All-Rounder Pokemon List Details

Pokemon That Help Other Pokemon
Supporters are Pokemon that assist other Pokemon by buffing them, healing them or causing debuffs & disruptions on the enemy team. They function more effectively when paired with other teammates to complete certain tasks that might be impossible alone.
Come With Some Crowd Control
Supporter Moves can heal / buff allies while some can debuff / push enemies, or otherwise affect the playing field (like Mr. Mime's Barrier). Knowing the characteristics of these moves is paramount to effectively support your allies.All Supporters List Details
Which Held Item To Upgrade
Use Item Enhancers To Upgrade Held Items
You can upgrade your Held Items by using Item Enhancers which can be purchased in the Shop. You will need 10 Aeos Tickets to purchase one Item Enhancer. Note that you can now also use a Super Item Enhancer to instantly upgrade an item to level 30 (the max). These are very limited in number, however.
Can Be Upgraded Up To Level 30
Held Items are upgradable up until level 30. The higher the level, the more Item Enhancers will be required. Since you are limited on how many Item Enhancers you can get, it’ll be important to choose which items you prioritize leveling. You may check the guide below for tips on which Held Item to prioritize!Best Held Item Upgrade Guide
Use 7-Day Max-Grade Trial Cards To Check
You can use a consumable item call 7-Day Max-Grade Trial Card to temporarily max out a single Held Item. You can use this to check if the Held Item is something viable or not when maxed.7-Day Max-Grade Trial Card Guide
Which Held Item To Upgrade
You may upgrade the Held Items based on which type of Pokemon you use. You may upgrade Held Items that increase Attack & Speed if you will prioritize Attacker Pokemon or held items that raise Defense if you will focus on Defender Pokemon. Try to choose which items you prioritize intelligently!
Focus On Certain Threshholds
Note that your held items will gain a notable boost to their effect at levels 10 and 20. These are two very important Thresholds that you should try to reach as soon as possible.
