In Mystery Dungeon, items play a very important role to assist your advance. While existing items such as certain berries and evolutionary equipments are included, the majority of items are entirely new and are designed to serve specific roles in the dungeons. As described in the Main Menus section, the item menu is the first option outside the dungeons, and the second option while in the dungeons.
Items are generally scattered in the dungeons or are sold at the Kecleon Shops at the Pokémon Square. However, certain important items are stored in special rooms inside the dungeon which require special items or skills to access.
The most common is the locked chamber.
 

These are items which effect will not take place unless you equip your Pokémon with it, except the evolutionary scarfs, which should be placed in your item bag and used while in the Luminous Springs during evolutions.
