What is the Choice Band in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet?

Like any other Held Item in the game, the Choice Band is used to improve your Pokemon. It's an item best used for increasing the attacking stats of a team member's move of choice. Using it, you can easily dominate other Pokemon not only in the solo game, but also in competitive mode. Moreover, the Choice Band is a perfect option if you want to boast other players with your in-game progression.

The most significant disadvantage of Choice Band is that it can only be used for one party member, on one of their moves. You will not be able to switch and use it for several different Pokemon. Therefore, you should think a lot before choosing a Pokemon for your Choice Band.

Once you know what the Choice Band is, it is time to discover how to obtain it. Like any other Held Item, it can be purchased in the Delibird Presents store in Mesagoza. The only disadvantage is its price. The Choice Band costs a staggering $100,000, which makes it one of the most expensive items in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.

Moreover, you should remember that Choice Band will appear in the store only after completing the main questline. If you are at the beginning or middle stages of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, it will be impossible to purchase this item.

Is the Choice Band good in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet?

As the Choice Band is one of the most expensive items in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, buying it is not a straightforward decision. Even if you are an experienced player, you should think a lot before buying a Choice Band. Of course, this Hold Item will give you a lot of advantages over other players. However, since it only unlocks after the story mode is finished, you may not find yourself needing it that much.

Moreover, Choice Band is a single-use item. Therefore, you can use it only for one Pokemon, and can not change your choice. So, it would be best to spend the $100,000 more reasonably than on one Choice Band, even though it provides the best attack boosts in the games.
