Herbal medicine is a type of item from the Pokémon games. They can be used during or out of battle to restore a Pokémon's HP, remove status conditions, or revive a Pokémon, all with a side effect of lowering a Pokémon's happiness due to their bitter taste. They can be found on the ground, whether readily visible or hidden from sight and requiring an Itemfinder to locate; however, herbal medicine is usually bought from special herb shops.

Trivia

The effect of lowering a Pokémon's happiness due to its bitter taste applies even to those with a Calm, Gentle, Sassy, or Careful nature, which are supposed to prefer bitter taste. This may be due to the fact that herbal medicine was introduced in Generation II, while natures weren't introduced until Generation III.
