Vitamins in Pokémon Adventures

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

In Wartortle Wars, Red tried to use an "HP Up" sold to him by Green on Pika, but, like with all the other items she had sold him, it proved to be fake and ineffective.

In Weavile Wobbles But It Won't Fall Down, several kinds of vitamins were seen being sold at the Safari Zone Gate.
