Max Elixir

Max Elixir was introduced as an Item card in the Pokémon Trading Card Game during the English XY Series (the Japanese XY Era) in the BREAKpoint expansion. In Japanese, it was reprinted in the Sun & Moon Era in the Premium Trainer Box. This Trainer card allows the player to attach one basic Energy card from the top 6 cards of their deck to a Basic Pokémon on their Bench.


  • The Japanese name of the Max Elixir is "PP Max", which is the English name of another item (PP Max). (The PP Max's name in Japanese is "Point Max".)
  • There is an unused sprite Bag Max Elixir WL Sprite.png for a Wonder Launcher item whose coloration resembles the Elixir.
