You don't have to clone Pokemon in order to clone items.
Make Pokes in the PC hold any items you want to clone. Save the game. Then withdraw any items you want(thus putting the items into your bag). Go to the lady behind the desk and continue with the clone procedure. After the prodecure is finished, the items will still be held by the Pokes in your PC, and they will also be in your bag.
