A feather (Japanese: ハネ feather) is a type of item from the Pokémon games. They are used to boost the stats of a Trainer's Pokémon. Prior to Generation VIII, they were called wings in English-language games due to character limitations.


The first six feathers can be considered a less powerful version of vitamins. Unlike vitamins, however, they are not subject to the 100 EV cap. Like vitamins, they are consumed after use. Each one gives a Pokémon one effort value (EV) in a particular stat.

There is a seventh feather, the Pretty Feather, which is similar in appearance and can be found in the same locations as the others; however, it serves no purpose other than to be sold.


In Generation V, they can be found in Flying Pokémon's shadows on the Driftveil Drawbridge and Marvelous Bridge, or as rewards for earning low ranks in the Battle Institute or clearing areas in Black Tower/White Treehollow.

In Generation VI, they are obtainable from Super Secret Training regimens in Super Training.

In Generation VII, they can occasionally be dropped by certain Pokémon found in ambush encounters.

In Generation VIII, they are found on Route 5.

Some NPCs will give out Health or Swift Wings to players with a Pokémon with sufficiently high Speed or Attack, respectively.

In Mr. Perfect, Magician gave Blake a pack of wings he had requested from him. In Innocent Scientist, Blake revealed that he had given a Resist Wing and Rare Candy to his Dewott just before heading to battle Genesect, boosting his defenses just enough for him to be able to survive an Electric-type Techno Blast.
