A mint (Japanese: ミント mint) is a type of consumable item introduced in Generation VIII that changes the effect of a Pokémon's Nature on its stats.


When used from the Bag on a Pokémon, it changes the effect of a Pokémon's Nature on its stats to that of the Nature corresponding to the mint used. The Pokémon's actual Nature, however, remains unchanged. The Pokémon's liked and disliked flavor, Toxel's evolution into Toxtricity, the Nature of wild Pokémon encountered using Synchronize, and the Nature that would be inherited from breeding will remain the same.


In Pokémon Sword and Shield, mints can be purchased at the Battle Tower for 50 BP. They are also awarded at random each time the player achieves a higher rank for the first time in the Battle Tower. Mints can also be found scattered around the Isle of Armor and Crown Tundra as randomly spawned overworld items each day.

In Pokémon Legends: Arceus, mints can be acquired from the farm in Jubilife Village by requesting a Mint Harvest for $10,000. The types of mints received from harvests are random.

In Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, mints can be bought from Chansey Supply stores for $20,000 each. They can also be found throughout the Paldea region.
