In the menu, there is a "Team" header that lets one select tactics, moves and general behavior for one's teammates. The "Item" header is now known to be involved in item usage, attacks, distributions to teammates and leaving them on the ground.

More item types are now known as well; items now have more variety in their effects, such as the new Momon Scarf, which makes the holder immune to poisons.

As well, unlike in previous games, one's Pokémon now have a "hunger" meter, and their appetites must be replenished during missions or otherwise. Normally one's HP will refill over time simply by walking around, but if one's hunger is at 0, one's HP will decrease instead. Eat items like Apples to replenish one's hunger bar.
