Choice Band is an item introduced in Generation III.

Effects

A Choice Band is to be held by a Pokémon that increases the holder's Attack stat by 50%, however that Pokémon is restricted to using the first attack chosen after it enters a battle.

The effects are lifted if the Choice Band is stolen via Thief, Covet or Pickpocket, or removed via Knock Off.

The only exception to this rule is when the holder uses the move Pursuit against a retreating Pokémon on the turn the holder comes into battle. It will be able to select another move on the following turn in this case.
