- This article is about the items that represent real-world drinks. For the items also known as Pokémon drinks, see Vitamin.
A drink is a type of item from the Pokémon games. Most can be used during or outside of a battle to restore a Pokémon's HP. They are usually a cheap alternative to Potions, but are rarely purchasable in bulk.
Pokémon X and Y also introduced a special variety of drinks collectively referred to as Berry Juices that can be bought or made at the Juice Shoppe in Lumiose City. These drinks are made by combining different Berries together and have a variety of effects, such as increasing friendship, EVs, or level. These drinks are not able to be stored in the Bag, however, and must be given immediately to a Pokémon in the player's party.
Drinks are found in a variety of special places. The main three, Fresh Water, Soda Pop, and Lemonade, can be bought from Vending Machines; Moomoo Milk can be bought from Moomoo Farm in Johto, Vending Machines in Pokémon XD, and at the Café Cabin in Sinnoh. They can be bought in bulk in only two places, in the Two Island Market Stall (after certain requirements are met) and at Mt. Moon Square.
In Generation V, Vending Machines are much more common, being located in Shopping Mall Nine, Twist Mountain, Route 5, Route 9, Cold Storage, Route 15, Marvelous Bridge, and Village Bridge, as well as in several cities and towns. Moomoo Milk can be purchased from the market in Driftveil City in single bottles or by the dozen. Berry Juice can be won on board the Royal Unova or bought in Black City. Fresh Water can also be purchased in Black City and can be obtained from the Clyde in every Gym.
When purchasing a drink in the Generation III and IV games, there is a 1/64 chance that the player may also receive an extra drink for free. In Generation V, this chance is increased to a 1/32 chance. In Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, there is also a chance of an extra drink, with an even slimmer chance of two extra drinks. When this happens, the message "Score! An extra can of <item> dropped down!", "Bonus! Another can of <item> dropped down.", or "Score! You got a bonus drink! An extra bottle of <item> dropped down." is displayed, depending on the generation. In Black 2 and White 2, there is a Medal for having this happen.
A thirsty girl on the roof of Celadon Department Store will give TMs in exchange for one of the Vending Machine drinks. The TMs vary between generations. In Generation I, the girl trades TM13 (Ice Beam) for a Fresh Water, TM48 (Rock Slide) for a Soda Pop, and TM49 (Tri Attack) for a Lemonade. In Generation III, the girl trades TM16 (Light Screen) for a Fresh Water, TM20 (Safeguard) for a Soda Pop, and TM33 (Reflect) for a Lemonade. In Generation VII, the girl trades TM06 (Light Screen) for a Fresh Water, TM09 (Reflect) for a Soda Pop, and TM07 (Protect) for a Lemonade.

In the Mystery Dungeon series there exist health drinks that have various effects on the consumer such as regaining PP, raising a stat, and raising IQ.
In the anime
In An Egg Scramble!, bottles of Moomoo Milk were one of the things Khoury was selling at the Johto Festival. Khoury's father also gave Ash and his friends cones of ice cream made out of Moomoo Milk, while Jessie was seen drinking a bottle of stolen Moomoo Milk.
In Mounting an Electrifying Charge!, Ash and Sophocles were seen drinking some Moomoo Milk. Later in the episode, during a pit stop at the Charjabug race, Ash gave Sophocles's Charjabug some Moomoo Milk for it to reenergize. After Sophocles's team won the race, Kiawe took the chance to advertise his Moomoo Milk on television.
In The Dex Can't Help It!, Kiawe delivered a silo of Moomoo Milk to Mallow.
In the manga
In the Pokémon Adventures manga
Eusine was given several bottles of Moomoo Milk by the Miltank Farmers in Miltank Melee. When he had finished healing Miltank Farmers' Miltank, he was surprised by Crystal, causing him to drop all the bottles, breaking them in the process.
Todd Snap was seen drinking a bottle of Fresh Water in Never Spritz a Knotty Sudowoodo. As he was unable to drink the whole bottle, he poured the remaining water onto what he thought was a tree, but soon turned out to be a wild Sudowoodo, causing it to attack him and requiring Emerald to calm it down.
In the TCG
Moomoo Milk is featured in the Pokémon Trading Card Game as a Trainer card. First released in the Neo Genesis expansion as Moo-Moo Milk, a reprint in the HeartGold & SoulSilver expansion changed it to Moomoo Milk. This name change and slight difference in each card's effect prompted a ruling that declared the prints as different cards.
