Summary
Deals 1% damage to the holder after each action. Deals 3% damage and passes on to any Pokémon that comes into contact with the holder.

Description

Metal burrs that cling to the skin of any Pokémon that brushes against them, digging in painfully. The Pokémon holding this item takes 1% damage per action, but if it makes a contact attack against an opponent, or an opponent makes a contact attack against it, that opponent takes 3% in recoil damage and acquires the Sticky Barb as a hold item, even if it is already holding something. A Pokémon cannot voluntarily remove its own Sticky Barb, and multiple Sticky Barbs can be stacked on the same Pokémon.
