A Poké Mart (Japanese: フレンドリィショップ Friendly Shop) is a convenience store that sells supplies necessary for Pokémon training. A Poké Mart's stock varies with its location, such as Poké Balls being available in Viridian City and Ultra Balls being available in Cinnabar Island. Some sell more items than others. Poké Marts also buy many different items in exchange for money. Much of the merchandise sold at such stores is produced by either Silph Co. or the Devon Corporation.

Almost all cities, both major and minor, have Poké Marts, the exception being some which have local medicine shops. Notably, the town players start at in each main game does not have a Poké Mart. An interesting thing to note is that in the anime, Poké Marts do not seem to be as ubiquitous as in the games.

When the Mystery Gift function on a game cartridge is activated, a deliveryman may appear in Poké Marts with gifts for the player. The deliveryman only appears when a Mystery Gift is received by the cartridge.

In Generation IV, there are two vendors in each Sinnoh Poké Mart. One will sell standard items, and the other will sell regional specialties. Unlike in previous games, rather than the items and their quantity varying by location, the merchandise's availability will increase with each Badge obtained. For example, if all Badges are under a player's possession, the same items will be found at each Poké Mart around Sinnoh.

Generation I

The player will come across their first Poké Mart in Viridian City, as they travel across the town. If the player enters the Poké Mart in Viridian City for the first time, the clerk will ask the player to deliver Oak's Parcel to Professor Oak in Pallet Town. The old man to the north of the city will not move until the packet is delivered to Professor Oak.

On Route 1, a man who works at the Poké Mart in Viridian City will give out a free sample of Potion to trainers who chat with him.

Generation III

In Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald, the Poké Mart is introduced by a salesman in Oldale Town, who directs the player to the local Poké Mart before giving the player a Potion as a gift. Like in Pokémon Gold, Silver, and Crystal, there are no supply of Poké Balls, and they will not have in stock until after the player challenges their rival on Route 103 and visits Professor Birch for the second time.

In Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, the player will come across their first Poké Mart in Viridian City and deliver Oak's Parcel to Professor Oak, like in Generation I. On Route 1, a man who works at the Poké Mart in Viridian City will give out a free sample of Potion to trainers who chat with him. In Generation III, there are the same Poké Marts found in Generation I.

A new feature is introduced to Poké Marts in Generation III, the ability to answer surveys inside the Poké Mart. These surveys will allow the activation to Mystery Gift. To activate the Mystery Gift feature in the Generation III games, players need only to walk up to the clipboard found at any Poké Mart and enter a phase. The clerk behind the counter will then inform them that the Mystery Gift feature has been activated, and it will be available on the main menu from that point on.
