Lagging Tail is a held item that appears in the Generation IV Pokémon games. When held by a Pokémon it causes the Pokémon to strike last (basically it is the polar opposite of the Quick Claw item).

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Its sprite resembles an Onix's tail.

In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver[edit | edit source]

It can be found on Route 47. Slowpoke & Lickitung are occasionally found holding one in the wild. It is best used when held by a Pokémon that knows Gyro Ball (as it makes Gyro Ball more powerful).

Lagging Tail[edit | edit source]

It is possible that the Lagging Tail is the Generation IV's version of the SlowpokeTail item found in the Generation II games (due to it being held by wild Slowpoke and its effect when held in battle). However the difference is the SlowpokeTail doesn't affect Pokémon holding it. However, it maybe related to Onix as the item resembles an Onix's tail.
