Soda Pop (Japanese: サイコソーダ Psycho Soda) is a type of medicine introduced in Generation I. It is a drink that restores a Pokémon's HP.
In the core series games
It can be bought at a higher price of 600 from the Vending Machines at the Route 112 and Mt. Chimney Cable Car stations, on Alola Route 8, and on Alola Route 13.
It can be bought at a cheaper price of 250 from the Vending Machines at the Team Magma Hideout and Team Aqua Hideout.
In the Generation V games, it can be sold to the gourmet maniac on Route 5 for 300.
Generation I to VI
When used from the Bag on a Pokémon, it heals the Pokémon by 60 HP. It is consumed after use.
Generation VII onward
When used from the Bag on a Pokémon, it heals the Pokémon by 50 HP. It is consumed after use.
In the Kanto-based games, it can be given to a thirsty girl at the Celadon Department Store in exchange for TM48 (Rock Slide)RBY, TM20 (Safeguard)FRLG, or TM09 (Reflect)PE.
In the Generation I games, the player can give a Fresh Water, Soda Pop, or Lemonade to one of the Saffron City guards to be granted access to the city.

In the anime
In The Fourth Round Rumble, Team Rocket slipped on a can of Soda Pop while running away from Officer Jenny.
In Triple Leaders, Triple Threats!, Cress offered to bring Ash a Soda Pop, but he declined, wanting to have a Gym battle rather than a drink.
In Mission: Defeat Your Rival!, Stephan was seen drinking Soda Pop.
In Lost at the League!, a vendor gave a Soda Pop to Axew.
In This Magik Moment!, a Soda Pop appeared as a part of a TV show starring Mallow, Lillie, and Lana.
- The Saiko Soda Pokémon Center Collection, a summer merchandise line released at Japanese Pokémon Center stores in May 2018, uses the Soda Pop in its title and branding.
- At normal purchase prices, the Soda Pop is the most cost-effective HP recovery item, recovering 1 HP per 6 spent. However, the Max Potion (as well as Full Restore and Revives in some cases) can potentially be more cost-effective if used under certain circumstances; the ideal situation for a Max Potion is a Blissey with maximum EVs and IVs in HP with 1 HP remaining, which would recover around 1 HP per 3.5 spent.
- Soda Pop may be based on ramune, a type of drink originating from Japan.
