Potion in Pokémon GO

In Pokémon GO, the Potion can be used to heal a Pokémon by 20 HP. It can only be used outside of battle, including through the Gym interface immediately before a challenge.

Regular Potions can be obtained starting at level 5 (the same level when Gyms can be challenged) by searching PokéStops or Gyms. Potions are also available as rewards for leveling up, from level 5 through level 9.

In the anime

Potions in the anime

Regular Potions have been used on occasion in the anime. Usually, Brock, Cilan, and Clemont carry them in their respective backpacks, and they use them to heal injured Pokémon. Potions seem to sting slightly whenever used, suggesting that they not only heal but sterilize the wound. Tracey has also been seen with some regular Potions that need to be taken orally.

Clemont used a regular Potion on Meowth in A Conspiracy to Conquer!, although this happened off-screen, and the Potion bottle was only briefly seen when Clemont put it back into his backpack.

Several regular Potions were seen in Professor Kukui's medical kit in The Sun, the Scare, the Secret Lair!.

Professor Kukui used a regular Potion in Rocking Clawmark Hill! to heal the Rockruff he was taking care of.

In Lulled to La-La Land!, Lillie mentioned Potions as some of the items she had brought with her to the camp she and her classmates were having. In the dub, they were mistakenly referred to as "lotions".

Potion
Main article: Potion (Base Set 94)

The Potion was introduced as a Trainer card in the Pokémon Trading Card Game during the English Original Series (the Japanese Original Era) in the Base Set expansion with artwork by Keiji Kinebuchi. It was later released as an Item card in the Black & White expansion with new artwork by Ayaka Yoshida, first released in the Japanese Beginning Set. This card has since been released numerous times throughout the course of the TCG.

In the Base Set, Expedition Base Set, and EX Unseen Forces prints, this Trainer card allows the player to remove two damage counters from one of their Pokémon. In the Black & White, XY, and Sun & Moon Series prints, this Trainer card allows the player to heal 30 damage from one of their Pokémon.
