Choice Scarf Rock/Dragon Rampardos with Outrage!
Choice Scarf+Dragon Mutagen. Rampardos is also holding a Big Bag?

Description: A giant, powerful rocket that boosts speed, but makes the user a bigger and more predictable target.
Effect: Boosts speed 20%, but the opponent's moves always hit.
We really need a reliable speed boosting item that doesn't lock the user in.

Shouldn't it be +30% like Life Orb?

Just a little reminder - any item that "can only be used once" can be restored with Recycle. I presume that Recycle can also replace an item discarded through Fling or Natural Gift. As for Knock Off, a Pokemon hit with Knock Off is still considered to have its held item, but said held item will not have any effect for the remainder of the battle (even if that Pokemon is switched out and switched back in.)
I actually have an item idea of my own. It would have been fine in Generation IV, but in Generation V... I'm not so sure...
: If the Pokemon holding this item is KO'd, it is automatically revived with 1/4 of its Max HP. The user is still forced to switch out unless it is the last Pokemon remaining on its owner's team, and a new Pokemon is brought onto the field to replace it at the end of the round as normal. This item can also be used from the bag outside of or during a battle to revive a Pokemon with 1/4 of its Max HP (sort of like a Revive with half efficacy.) Like any other Berry, it disappears once used. This Berry is compatible with Natural Gift, and provides an 80 BP Mystic-type attack. If Flung at another Pokemon, it heals that Pokemon for 1/4 of its maximum HP (no Base Power.) This Item can be stolen by Bug Bite or Pluck (which will result in the user of those moves immediately consuming it), and can also be destroyed by Incinerate. If consumed by another Pokemon by using Bug Bite or Pluck, it restores 1/4 of the Bug Bite/Pluck-using Pokemon's HP.
I think you can see why I have reservations about this item. In Generation IV, the only way to use it more than once would be Recycle, which would use up a precious moveslot (not to mention that it might be difficult to find the time to use it, especially since your Pokemon is at only 1/4 of its max HP and could very well be just KO'd again immediately after using Recycle.) But come Generation V, and we now have the Harvest ability, which automatically restores a used-up Berry at the end of the round! Granted, it doesn't have a 100% success rate outside of sunny weather, but still! Exeggutor and Tropius would become near-freakin' invincible!!! The only ways to get around a Novacoda Berry-holding, Harvest-using Exeggutor or Tropius [in sunlight] would be to hit them with Knock Off, Thief, Covet, Trick, Switcheroo, Incinerate, Bug Bite, or Pluck, or trick them into using a contact move on a Pokemon with Pickpocket (and Thief, Covet, and Pickpocket would require the user to not have an item!) And of those moves, Trick and Knock Off are the only ones to see significant competitive usage!!!
The purpose of this item is to give a Pokemon something of a safety cushion against knockout blows. Seeing as it only works once (except for on Pokemon with Harvest, gorramn it!), it's not exactly an insurmountable obstacle for the opponent, but it can still allow a Pokemon - especially a frail one - to get a second chance at victory. It can also help a Pokemon utilize a suicidal move more than once. Speaking of suicidal moves, the clause about the user being required to switch out in spite of having been revived is to avoid game-crashing awkwardness due to Healing Wish or Lunar Dance.

Hey, I got a new item idea!
: This item effectively increases the holder's base Attack and Defense by 30 apiece, as well as boosting its base Speed by 5. For instance, a Rapidash holding this item would effectively have a base Attack of 130, a base Defense of 100, and a base Speed of 110 (instead of 100, 70, and 105, respectively.) All other base stats remain unaffected. However, note that it does absolutely
unless held by Ponyta, Rapidash, Tauros, Stantler, Miltank, Blitzle, Zebstrika, Deerling, Sawsbuck, or Bouffalant. (I considered letting it boost Arceus as well, but then I figured "Arceus doesn't actually have hooves, so how would it wear a horsehoe?" So I left it out.)

horshoe is a interesting idea
but rise base stats? its nonsense
should raise stats number
but if increase atk, def and spd in 20% its okay
rapidash adamant 252 atk / 252 spd
271 / 328 / 176 / 176 / 196 / 309
with a Horshoe (rising 20%):
/ 176 / 196 /

I agree with marceloSSJ, and I think it's a very cool item.
This thread exudes coolness in general. Pretty neat. They may have to be "Tough Hooves" since deer can't wear horseshoes (at least I think so...).
Land Necklace: (Groudon and Landorus) 25% in Atk and Def
Sea Pendant: (Kyogre and Thundurus) 25% in Sp Atk and Sp Def
Sky Bracelet: (Rayquaza and Tornadus) 25% in Spe and Acc
Kinda crappy of an idea, but I regret these guys not having a unique item. It may be useful in the Ubers environment, but it's too much for those in OU.
Combat Shield: No critical hits (Battle Armor/Shell Armor)
Spell Wand: doubles effect chances (Serene Grace) on special attacks only. not stackable with Serene Grace Pokemon.
