Does Smogon have Item Clause?

If so, is it for every tier (I know, I'm not really fresh on Smogon's ban lists and clauses)? I wanted to run Life Orb on two Pokemon, but I'm not sure if it'll be allowed.

No, they don't.

Aight. I read only Official Pokemon Tournaments have Item Clause, so I should be fine.

Item clause is really the one clause I wish Smogon did enforce. I don't like battling teams where half the pokemon are holding Leftovers, not because I have difficulty dealing with it but just because it seems so uncreative.

Shinji X Asuka is the most sacred pairing in all of anime. That is an unnegotiable fact.

Generally speaking it's because the person is uncreative, or because there really is a lack of good items to use.

I don't really see the problem. Some sets just work with Leftovers, and sometimes they make a team and end up finding there's no other item that would be all that useful for the set in question.

Personally though when I myself am in doubt I slap on a Life Orb :p

Why can't the caterpie and the pidgey be friends? One eats leaves and the other eats caterpie. Oh I see it now.
