What Does the Choice Scarf Do in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet?

The Choice Scarf is a Held Item that increases the speed stat of the Pokemon it is equipped to significantly.

However, that Pokemon will only be able to use the first move you select until it is either swapped out or KO’d.

Of course, this adds a lot of risk as you’ll be forced to use the first move you pick over and over again, even if your opponent switches Pokemon.

However, the increase to your Pokemon’s speed stat will allow it to practically always attack first. So, if you’ve got a Pokemon with a high attack or Sp. Attack, then the trade-off is absolutely worth it.
