Hungry? Why wait
Many classic held items return in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet, which includes Leftovers (the memorable icon that looks like a piece of garbage is back too). Thankfully, this one can be acquired at any point in the game, so long as you travel to the city of Cascarrafa.
Here’s a quick rundown of where to find Leftovers.
You can buy Leftovers held item at the Cascarrafa Delibird Presents chain
The Delibird Presents shops in Cascarrafa has what you need. Go to the northern-most flight path to the city, and head west to the location found directly on the ground floor. You can find our full Delibird Presents location guide here, but again, this one is found in Casaraffa. It’ll run you 20,000 Pokedollars: but you can also buy it without any gym badge requirements, unlike a lot of other key items in Scarlet & Violet. Yep! There’s no need to find it on wild Pokemon as a drop, nor is there a Battle Royal Dome requirement. You just buy it!
The official description for Leftovers is: “An item to be held by a Pokemon. The holder’s HP is slowly but steadily restored throughout a battle.” This one has been around since the second generation, so there’s bound to be people still using it in their loadouts.
