A Soda Pop in the anime

In Triple Leaders, Triple Threats!, Cress offered to bring Ash a Soda Pop, but he declined, wanting 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.

Trivia

  • At normal purchase prices, the Soda Pop is the most cost-effective HP recovery item, recovering 1 HP per PokémonDollar.png6 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 PokémonDollar.png3.5 spent.
  • Soda Pop may be based on ramune, a type of drink originating from Japan.
