Pokémon with this Ability have sticky fingers, and cannot resist the temptation to steal items from other Pokémon. If a Pokémon attacks the Ability-bearer with a contact move, the attacker will have their held item stolen from them. This Ability fails to work if the Bearer is holding an item, the attacker is not holding an item, or if either Pokémon is behind a Substitute.
