All Protect Orb

Using the All Protect Orb gives your entire team Protect condition, allowing you to attack for a while without having to worry about taking damage or dying. This is the strongest item you can use in a Boss battle.

All Power Up Orb

Another Orb we recommend is the All Protect Orb, as it greatly increases the Attack and Special Attack of the entire team.

All Dodge Orb

Using an All Dodge Orb greatly boosts the evasiveness of your whole team, which prevents them from taking damage. It's one of the best items in the game and a great alternative for All Protect Orb.

Empowerment Seed

Using Empowerment Seed grants Awakened status to your pokemon, which gives them a huge power up and makes them very strong.

You also need the Empowerment seed to Mega Evolve, so keep that in mind if you have a Pokemon with your who can Mega Evolve!

Bring a lot of Recovery Items!

Blast Seeds can be used to deal additional damage to the enemy in front of you. Since this guarantees 100 Damage, this can be extremely powerful - especially during boss battles when clearing the story.

Mobility and Speed Items

These items are best used to close the gap between you and the boss. You can use Quick Orb to increase the movement of your entire team or use Slow Orb, Slow Wand and Whirlwind Wand to slow them down and lower their movement speed.

Can confirm that recovery items are key, especially for the really long dungeons like Sky Tower or any of the post-game stuff. So frustrating having to leave a dungeon just cause I didn't have enough reviver seeds...

And there are dungeons where you cant recruit pokemon so Helpers are really good like Fugitive era and Deoxys cave.
