Many herbs not found in the games, such as [[Salveyo weed]] and [[Remeyo weed]], have been featured in the {{pkmn|anime}}. Characters like {{an|Brock}} and {{an|Iris}} specialize in using herbs to help sick Pokémon.
A bottle of Heal Powder appeared in ''[[DP190|The Brockster Is In!]]'' as one of the items gathered from the passengers of a cruise ship to help cure the {{status|poisonedpoison}}ed Pokémon [[Normajean]] was taking care of.
Revival Herbs were first featured in [[M14|''White—Victini and Zekrom'' and ''Black—Victini and Reshiram'']]. In ''Black—Victini and Reshiram'', [[Luis]] was seen finding some with his {{p|Lillipup}}, while in ''White—Victini and Zekrom'', he was seen giving [[Damon]] a small bottle of Revival Herb potion in a flashback.
The Revival Herbs played a major role in ''[[BW059|Stopping the Rage of Legends! Part 1]]'' and ''[[BW060|Part 2]]''. [[Clay]] offered to accept {{Ash}}'s challenge for a [[Gym]] {{pkmn|battle}} in case he brought him some Revival Herbs. First, Ash and {{ashfr}} searched for them from the {{DL|Driftveil City|Market|Driftveil Market}}, but were only able to find only a single, already preordered Herb, forcing them to go to [[Milos Island]] in order to get new ones. ThereUnfortunately, when they arrived there, they found out that all the Herbs on the Islandisland had died out due to the lack of rain. TheyAsh and his friends met a young man named [[Lewis]], who told them about a legend of a {{p|Tornadus}}, {{p|Thundurus}}, and {{p|Landorus}}. The first two had almost destroyed the Islandisland with their fight once, only to be stopped by the Landorus, who had been healed from its battle injuries by a shrine maiden and her {{p|Gothorita}}, who had given himwith a Revival Herb. As a sign of gratitude, Landorus had turned the Islandisland into a fertile paradise, blooming with Revival Herbs.
After Ash and his friends had saved the {{an|Forces of Nature}} from being caught by [[Team Rocket]], effectively repeating the story of the legend in the process, the three [[Legendary Pokémon]] restored the Islandisland back to its fertile state, allowing Ash to get plenty of Revival Herbs for Clay. They were delivered to the [[Driftveil City]] [[Gym Leader]] at the beginning of ''[[BW061|Battling the King of the Mines!]]'', where Clay kept his promise and agreed to have a Gym battle with Ash in exchange for bringing him the Herbs.
In ''[[SS026|Mewtwo — Prologue to Awakening]]'', {{un|Anna}} gave {{un|Oscar}}'s {{p|Stoutland}} a small bottle of Revival Herb potion to be taken to {{OBP|Mewtwo|Best Wishes series}}. However, once Stoutland found Mewtwo, the Genetic Pokémon refused to take the medicine, saying it didn't want any help from [[human|people]].
