One of them is using the items in Pokemon Unite. Held items can be triumph cards in everyone’s deck in each match. So, we have created a guide on upgrading your Held Items in Pokemon Unite.

How to Upgrade Pokemon Unite Held Items

Each Pokemon can hold up to 3 items in the game, which gives the Pokemon a permanent boost. This boost can be in the form of healing, shield or any stats boost.

To obtain these items, you must complete challenges or buy them in the shop. Furthermore, you can upgrade these held items for a better stat boost during matches.

However, to upgrade your held items, players must first cross-level 9. After your trainer is level 9, head into the battle prep menu and go into the load-outs of your Pokemon.

You will see that an upgrade menu pops up when you choose held items. However, you will need Item Enhancers to upgrade each of these items, and there are only specific ways to get them.

To get item enhancers, you have to complete challenges. You can also get them if you have a Battle Pass, and the last way is by buying them using Aeos Tickets.

If you are short of Aeos Tickets, you can purchase Aeos Gems using microtransactions and get your Item Enhancers.

Players can upgrade these Battle Held Items to level 30, and the higher you go up in rank, the more essential leveling them up becomes.

Item Enhancers are the only way to upgrade your Held Items in Pokemon Unite. But without using real money it can be very tough to upgrade these as it will take you hours of grinding. It is not impossible to get them for free but it takes a lot of effort if you choose not to use real money.
