This article is about the items that represent real-world drinks. For the items also known as Pokémon drinks, see Vitamin.
This article is about the drink-based items. For a song called "Soda Pop", see Soda Pop (song).

A drink is a type of item from the Pokémon games. Most can be used during or outside of a battle to restore a Pokémon's HP. They are usually a cheap alternative to Potions, but are rarely purchasable in bulk.

Pokémon X and Y also introduced a special variety of drinks collectively referred to as Berry Juices that can be bought or made at the Juice Shoppe in Lumiose City. These drinks are made by combining different Berries together and have a variety of effects, such as increasing friendship, EVs, or level. These drinks are not able to be stored in the Bag, however, and must be given immediately to a Pokémon in the player's party.


Drinks are found in a variety of special places. The main three, Fresh Water, Soda Pop, and Lemonade, can be bought from Vending Machines; Moomoo Milk can be bought from MooMoo Farm in Johto, Vending Machines in Pokémon XD, and at the Café Cabin in Sinnoh. They can be bought in bulk in only two places, in the Two Island Market Stall (after certain requirements are met) and at Mt. Moon Square in HeartGold and SoulSilver Versions.

In Generation V, Vending Machines are much more common, being located in Shopping Mall Nine, Twist Mountain, Route 5, Route 9, Cold Storage, Route 15, Marvelous Bridge, and Village Bridge, as well as in several cities and towns. Moomoo Milk can be purchased from the market in Driftveil City in single bottles or by the dozen. Berry Juice can be won on board the Royal Unova or bought in Black City. Fresh Water can also be purchased in Black City and can be obtained from the Clyde in every Gym.

When purchasing a drink in the Generation III and IV games, 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. In Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, there is also a chance of an extra drink, with an even slimmer chance of two extra drinks. When this happens, the message "Score! An extra can of <item> dropped down!", "Bonus! Another can of <item> dropped down.", "Score! You got a bonus drink! An extra bottle of <item> dropped down." is displayed, depending on generation. In Black 2 and White 2, there is a Medal for having this happen.


A thirsty girl on the roof of Celadon Department Store will give TMs in exchange for one of the Vending Machine drinks. The TMs vary between generations. In Generation I, the girl trades TM13 (Ice Beam) for Fresh Water, TM48 (Rock Slide) for Soda Pop, and TM49 (Tri Attack) for Lemonade. In Generation III, the girl trades TM16 (Light Screen) for Fresh Water, TM20 (Safeguard) for Soda Pop, and TM33 (Reflect) for Lemonade.

In the anime

In A Better Pill to Swallow, Old Man Shuckle was seen mixing various sorts of Berry Juice with his Shuckle, their effects varying from curing indigestion to attracting Pokémon.

In An Egg Scramble!, bottles of Moomoo Milk were one of the things Khoury was selling at the Johto Festival. Khoury's father also gave Ash and his friends cones of ice cream made out of Moomoo Milk, while Jessie was seen drinking a bottle of stolen Moomoo Milk.

In Triple Leaders, Triple Threats!, Cress offered to bring Ash a Soda Pop, but he declined, wanting a Gym battle rather than a lunch.

In Mission: Defeat Your Rival!, Ash and Cameron were seen drinking Moomoo Milk, while Stephan was seen drinking Soda Pop.

In Lost at the League!, a vendor gave a Soda Pop to Axew, and Stephan was seen drinking a Moomoo Milk.

In the manga

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

A Lemonade made a brief appearance as one of the items in Red's Bag in A Hollow Victreebel.

Eusine was given several bottles of Moomoo Milk by the Miltank Farmers in Miltank Melee. When he had finished healing Miltank Farmers' Miltank, he was surprised by Crystal, causing him to drop all the bottles, breaking them in the process.

Todd Snap was seen drinking a bottle Fresh Water in Never Spritz a Knotty Sudowoodo. As he was unable to drink the whole bottle, he poured the remaining water onto what he thought was a tree, but soon turned out to be a wild Sudowoodo, causing it to attack him and requiring Emerald to calm it down.

Cynthia's grandmother enjoys drinking Moomoo Milks at Café Cabin, as first shown in Suffering Psyduck.

Cassius was seen drinking a bottle of Moomoo Milk in Overthrowing a Tyrunt.

In the TCG

Moomoo Milk is featured in the Pokémon Trading Card Game as a Trainer card. First released in the Neo Genesis expansion as Moo-Moo Milk, a reprint in the HeartGold & SoulSilver expansion changed it to Moomoo Milk. This name change and slight difference in each card's effect prompted a ruling that declared the prints as different cards.

  • In Generation I, a Fresh Water, Soda Pop, or Lemonade could be given to the thirsty guards who blocked entry into Saffron City; this is changed in the remakes, Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, where they must be given Tea instead. This is likely to prevent exploitation of a Pokémon's ability to hold items, which did not exist in Generation I, and would allow a player of FireRed or LeafGreen to trade one of the three drinks from another game and enter Saffron as early as they arrived in Cerulean. This exploit is actually possible in the Generation I games by using Pokémon Stadium 2's Color Case to move the item from another game's Bag or PC.
  • The Fresh Water and Energy Root are the two most cost-effective HP recovery items, each recovering 1 HP per PokémonDollar.png4 spent. However, the Max Potion can potentially be more cost-effective if used on a Chansey or Blissey with extremely high HP; the best possible situation would be using a Max Potion on a Level 100 Blissey with maximum EVs and IVs in HP and 1 HP remaining, which would recover around 1 HP per PokémonDollar.png3.5 spent.
  • Soda Pop may be based on Ramune, a type of drink originating from Japan.
  • Ordinary lemonade is 4 times more effective at healing pokemon than a potion; which is actual medicine.
