|The user endearingly approaches the target, then steals the target's held item.|
Covet inflicts damage and steals the target's held item if it is holding any. If the target is not holding an item or the user is already holding an item, Covet cannot steal an item.
Covet cannot steal an item if the target has the Sticky Hold Ability, or if it hits a Pokémon's substitute. Held e-Reader Berries and Mail cannot be stolen.
