A vending machine is an object in the Pokémon games used to sell drinks.

In the Generation III and IV games, when purchasing a drink there is a 1/64 chance that the player may also receive an extra drink for free. In Generation V, this chance is increased to a 1/32 chance. When this happens, the message "Score! An extra can of [item] dropped down!" or "Bonus! Another can of [item] dropped down." is displayed, depending on generation. In Black 2 and White 2, there is a Medal for having this happen.

Trivia

  • Although vending machines are listed as dropping a can of the drink in question regardless of game and generation, the item menu sprites depict only Lemonade coming in a can. Fresh Water, Soda Pop, and Moomoo Milk are depicted as bottles in their item menu sprites, even if bought through a vending machine which says it drops a can.
  • Out of the items sold in the Department Store vending machines, Fresh Water is the best deal from a PokémonDollar.png/HP comparison, at PokémonDollar.png4/HP. Soda Pop is the worst deal, at PokémonDollar.png5/HP, and Lemonade is in the middle, at PokémonDollar.png4.375/HP.
  • Kalos is the only core series region where vending machines cannot be found.
