Ability: Dizzy. The pokemon is perpetually in the state of confusion.
Item - Repeat button. Once you use a move, the pokemon will keep using it like it's on encore until it faints. The pokemon cannot be switched out.
Water Torture: A move that inflicts 0 damage on 2-5 consective turns, but produces an few extra rows of annoying text for the player to scroll through during the battle.
Panic Buy: An ability similar to Pick Up, except the Pokemon picks up bottles of hand sanitiser and bags of dried pasta which have absolutely no function in-game. (You may be able to sell them for a hefty mark-up though...)
Shiny Goggles: These goggles will make all wild Pokemon appear shiny. All non-shiny Pokemon will revert to their regular coloration after capture. There is no way to tell the non-shines and shines apart while using this item.
Application Form (ability): if in the PC Box, the Pokemon produces a held item called "Resume" or "CV" with all the reasons that they deserve to take a slot on the team. The skills written on the held item include "might not die in one hit" and "can maybe use a move to deal chip damage". The held item cannot be sold, only tossed away. The only Pokemon with this Ability are: Unown, Luvdisc, Magikarp
Emoji attack: This move has 100% accuracy, is a 1hit ko, and bypasses protect and abilities. It’s animation forces the user to watch the entirety of the Emoji Movie. This attack’s “animation” occurs even when Battle Animations are turned off.
