Revision as of 16:35, 24 July 2013

A Potion (Japanese: キズぐすり Wound medicine) is a type of item from the Pokémon games. They can be used during or outside of a battle to restore a Pokémon's HP. They can often be found on the ground, whether readily visible or hidden from sight and requiring an Itemfinder to locate, and can be bought at most Poké Marts. They are also available in Wonder Launcher battles. Although the traditional RPG depiction of Potion is as a drink, in Pokémon, Potions appear to be topical, stored in spray bottles and applied to the skin.

In the anime

Potions have been used on occasion in the anime. Usually, Brock and Cilan carry them in their respective backpacks, and they use them to heal injured Pokémon. Potions seem to sting slightly whenever used, suggesting that they not only heal but sterilize the wound. Tracey has also been seen with some Potions that need to be taken orally.

Alder used a Super Potion to treat a wild Gigalith's wounds in Ash Versus the Champion!.

Trivia

  • The only Potion that is not depicted as being stored in a spray-type bottle is the SecretPotion, which appears to be in kampo teapill form.
  • In the first and second generations, Max Potion and Full Restore were programmed to only heal 999 HP, rather than restoring the HP to maximum. This is because, as below, a Pokémon with more than 999 HP is not legitimately possible, and the highest HP a Pokémon can technically have is 714, with a level 100 Blissey that has (in Generation II) an individual HP value of 15, and an HP effort value of 65,535 or higher. In later generations, this corresponds to an individual value of 31 and an effort value of 252 of higher.
    • Likewise, in early releases of Platinum, the Max Potion was mistakenly programmed to only heal 1,000 HP of damage (though a Pokémon with higher than 999 HP is not legitimately possible). This was fixed in later versions, which heal HP to 100%.
  • Of the Potions that heal a specific amount of HP (Potion, Super Potion and Hyper Potion), Hyper Potion is the best value, as it is 1 HP per PokémonDollar.png6, while Potion was the worst with only giving 1 HP per PokémonDollar.png15, and Super Potion is in the middle with 1 HP per PokémonDollar.png14.
