Effect

In-Battle

After a battle in which a Pokémon with the Pickup Ability is in your party, there is a 10% chance of that Pokémon finding an item after battle, making that item its Held Item.

Starting in Generation V, the Pickup Ability also activates if another Pokémon dropped or used a Held Item-such as a Berry-in battle. However, the Pickup Ability won't take effect if the Pokémon that has the Pickup Ability is holding an item at the conclusion of the battle.

Overworld

Pickup doesn't have an effect in the Overworld.
