Max Potions in the anime

In the TCG

Max Potion
Main article: Max Potion (Emerging Powers 94)

Max Potion was introduced as an Item card in the Pokémon Trading Card Game during the English Black & White Series (the Japanese BW Era) in the Emerging Powers expansion with artwork by 5ban Graphics.

This card allows the player to heal all damage from one of their Pokémon. The player then discards all Energy attached to that Pokémon.

Trivia

  • In Generations I and II, Max Potion was programmed to only heal 999 HP, rather than restoring the HP to maximum. However, since the highest possible HP a Pokémon can legitimately have in these games is 703 with a level 100 Chansey (in Generation I) or 713 with a level 100 Blissey (in Generation II), this is not an issue.
    • Likewise, in early releases of Pokémon Platinum, the Max Potion was mistakenly programmed to only heal 1,000 HP of damage (though a Pokémon with higher than 999 HP is not legitimately possible). This was fixed in later versions, which heal HP to 100%.
