Just curious. I've never used them ever, and I was wondering if they really have much of a purpose besides setting up a sweeper. Though why you'd need to set up a sweeper ingame I'm not really sure.

You win. You win this topic, you win GameFAQs, and you win all the internets.

On topic, I use them on occasion. I don't exactly go out of my way to buy them, but when I pick them up, I don't sell them immediately. Sometimes they may come in handy.

I guess they are useful to people doing challenges like Nuzlocke. They may give a upper hand if you didn't grind enough.

But I've never used them too. Long ago, in my Crystal version, I used a X Defense against Bugsy because of his annoying Scyther and its Fury Cutter. I didn't see any difference, actually. Maybe because I'd lost the battle either way, but this is the sole reason I tend to ditch these items quickly.

They are good for some situations in speedruns.
