I used them once, in Heart Gold, against Red. I sent out Kingdra against his Blastoise, stuffed him full of X items, and swept. It was quite funny actually.
These items don't see much use because most of the time they aren't needed, and in later games there are many good stat-boosting moves. But they can be very useful. Using an item on a Pokémon has priority over anything, any move, even the likes of Gastro Acid which stop you from using items on your Pokémon. So you can use an item like an X Defend and boost your Defense before the opponent attacks, increasing endurance.
If you don't have any stat-boosting moves, these items could have some use, too.
, the day Pokémon pulled a Dallas and jumped the shark.
