The Sacred Ash (Japanese: せいなるはい Sacred Ash) is a healing item found in most games since Generation II. Unlike other items in general, which work on only one Pokémon, the Sacred Ash, when used, is used on multiple Pokémon at a time. It is very rare, and can only be used once, making it a very popular item for cloning glitches or obtaining it by other illegitimate methods.
Generation III onwards: The Sacred Ash heals and restores only Pokémon who have fainted.
The Sacred Ash is typically found only once per game, and will often have some relation to Ho-Oh.
Sacred Ashes can be found on the floor in Poké Balls in the Battle Pyramid; however, they cannot be kept.
In Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum, players can obtain it by having a Pokémon hold it in Generation III and sending it through Pal Park. Wild Ho-Oh, which can only be encountered with a cheating device, will always be holding this item.
In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, there are up to two Sacred Ashes in the game. The first is obtained by talking to the Professor's aide in the right gate on Route 2, while the second is held by the Ho-Oh at the top of the Bell Tower, just as it was in Generation II.
- Since the Sacred Ash cannot be used in battle (unlike the Max Revive), its net effect can be achieved by applying 5 Revives followed by 5 Max Potions/Full Restores, placing its value at 20000/22500, respectively, in terms of utility alone.
