Upgrading Held Items will be available when your trainer level reaches level 9. Note that you can still equip Held Items even if you have not reached level 9 yet.
You can upgrade a Held Item's level grade by using Item Enhancers. These can be obtained by buying from the shop using Aeos Tickets or receiving as a reward from in-game events and challenges.
Another way to upgrade Held Items is using Super Item Enhancers. Unlike normal Item Enhancers, These let you instantly upgrade a Held Item's level grade to 30 - the maximum!
Currently, you can only get Super Item Enhancers by completing the Super Held Item Enhancement Missions event. They are regarded as a valuable item, so it is best to use them on an item that you often use.
|From the Main Menu, go to the Trainer Menu indicated by a small portrait of your Trainer.
|In the Trainer Menu,
|Go down one tab to All Held Items. Choose the Held Item that you want to upgrade, then select Upgrade.
|The Held Item's Grade will increase!
Hold down on the level 1, 10, or 20 icon to see the effects that will change once you reach those milestones.
Each time you spend Item Enhancers to upgrade a Held item, the Grade of that Held Item will be increased by 1. As the Grade increases, the stat boost the Held Item gives also increases. Additionally, when a Held Item reaches a certain level (namely Level 10 and 20), its bonus effects become more effective!
The number of Item Enhancers required to upgrade a held item increases per level. Since they can be difficult to get, it is important to know which items to prioritize when upgrading to avoid wasting Item Enhancers.
A total cost of 2587 Item Enhancers are needed to upgrade a held item from level 1 to the max level of 30. On the other hand, only 82 Item Enhancers are required to reach Level 10 (roughly 31.5 times cheaper), so aim for that milestone first for the items that you regularly use!
|# to Level Up
|Level 1-10 Item Enhancers = 82
|Level 11-20 Item Enhancers = 485
|Level 21-30 Item Enhancers = 2020
As seen in the table above, the cost shoots up exponentially when attempting to reach higher levels. It is recommended to upgrade a variety of different items by a few levels and experiment with them first and see if it will be worth investing Item Enhancers on, rather than focusing on upgrading a single item to Level 30 from the get-go.
