A Life Orb is a held item that boosts the holder's damaging attacks by 30%, but causes the holder to take 10% of its maximum HP in recoil with each damaging attack it uses. It can be obtained as a tier 3 special drop. It is a possible drop from legendary and ultimate boss Pokémon, or from certain wild Pokémon.
Before Reforged, this item had the following recipe. It was removed due to many held items being far too easy to make.
