I got a a level 93 ambipom that i use for pickup. I got all kinds of stuff from it even leftovers. Now though, it never gets anything. I would put it in my party and use exp share and get items. I just went through 10 luvdisc and got nothing. what gives??

I have a lv 100 Dedenne with Pickup, but it has yet to get Leftovers. GDI.

Pickup has only a 10% chance for the Pokemon to acquire an item after a battle. Fighting 10 battles and not getting an item isn't too hard to believe. Just keep battling and your Ambipom will pick things up eventually.

With 10% chance per battle, you still have ~35% chance that you won't find an item with one Pickup user after 10 battles.
