- New item scanners can be registered via this class, allowing modders to add their own item containers for use in battles, like how Poké Bags and Shulker Boxes can be used. BattleItemScanner.InventoryScanner[b][i] is the class used for this purpose, and it takes various functional interfaces for each of the functions required.

, for determining the source of the search request. By default, there are two types, normal and end of raid. These identifiers can be found in BagItemEvent.Identifiers.
