This article is about the items that represent real-world drinks. For the items also known as Pokémon drinks, see Vitamin.

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 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.", or "Score! You got a bonus drink! An extra bottle of <item> dropped down." is displayed, depending on the 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 a Fresh Water, TM48 (Rock Slide) for a Soda Pop, and TM49 (Tri Attack) for a Lemonade. In Generation III, the girl trades TM16 (Light Screen) for a Fresh Water, TM20 (Safeguard) for a Soda Pop, and TM33 (Reflect) for a Lemonade. In Generation VII, the girl trades TM06 (Light Screen) for a Fresh Water, TM09 (Reflect) for a Soda Pop, and TM07 (Protect) for a Lemonade.
