They introduced an hold item that acted like an Automatic Protect.

Turn 1) Protects you whilst letting you do move
Turn 2) No effect
Turn 3) Protects you whilst letting you do move
Turn 4) No effect

Rinse and repeat

Turn 1) Item, attack
Turn 2) Protect itself
Turn 3) Item, attack
Turn 4) Protect itself

Long story short NO

Anatidaephobia is the fear that somewhere, somehow, a duck is watching you, staring into your soul, using its duckiness.
QUACK.

This is why such an item would never exist. Youd have an invincible focus puncher. The only way I can see such an item ever being made would be if it is a consumable item

It would be slighly broken, more than likely banned to übers. However a ghost shuts it down completely and then tricks the item to itself.

There's a couple ways to balance it out;

1) Make the space between each effect a LOT longer. Maybe 5 turns or even 10.
2) Add in a cost for holding the item. For example, if a Pokemon was holding the item, they would lose 25 or 33 percent of their health when the item takes effect.
