What are Training Items?

Items that add +8 to a Pokemon's EVs

Training Items allow a Pokemon holding them to obtain +8 EVs after battle. For example, a Pokemon holding the Power Bracer will gain +8 Atk after gaining experience in battle. However, note that the Pokemon's Speed stat in battle will be lowered.

Macho Brace doubles the EVs gained in battle

Although it does not have Power in its name, Macho Brace will double the EVs gained in battle. For example, a Pokemon holding the Macho Brace who defeats a Machop (who normally gives +1 Atk EV) will instead receive +2 Attack EVs.
