'''Herbal medicine''' is a type of [[item]] in the [[Pokémon games]]. They can be used during or outside of a {{pkmn|battle}} to restore a Pokémon's {{stat|HP}}, remove [[status condition]]s, or revive a Pokémon, all with a side effect of lowering a Pokémon's [[friendship]] due to their bitter taste. They can be found on the ground, whether readily visible or hidden from sight and requiring an [[Dowsing Machine|Itemfinder]] to locate; however, herbal medicine is usually bought from special [[Herb Shop]]s. It should be noted that other than the Revival Herb, the items are cheaper than their more-common counterparts (such as {{DL|Potion|[[Super Potion}}]]). Even the Revival Herb has a benefit, as {{DL|Revive|[[Max Revive}}]]s cannot be bought in Poké Marts.

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|poison}}ed Pokémon [[Normajean]] was taking care of.
[[Revival HerbsHerb]]s 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.
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 able to find only a single, already preordered Herb, forcing them to go to [[Milos Island]] in order to get new ones. Unfortunately, when they arrived there, they found out that all the Herbs on the island had died out due to the lack of rain. Ash 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 island with their fight once, only to be stopped by Landorus, who had been healed from its battle injuries by a shrine maiden and her {{p|Gothorita}} with a Revival Herb. As a sign of gratitude, Landorus had turned the island into a fertile paradise, blooming with Revival 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]].
In ''[[XY017|A Rush of Ninja Wisdom!]]'', [[Sanpei]] offered a pill made out of [[Energy Root]] to Ash after his {{AP|Froakie}} had lost to him in battle. The remedy proved instantly effective, though Froakie greatly disliked the bitter taste.
Multiple Revival Herbs appeared in [[SM035]], where Ash and {{an|Mallow}} collected them to be used as ingredients for the "{{isl|Akala}} Curry". Later, they used a couple of the herbs to heal {{pkmn2|Totem}} {{p|Lurantis}} and its ally {{p|Castform}} after Ash's [[Island challenge|trial]] against it. Out of curiosity, {{AP|Litten}} also took a taste of the herbs and, like Castform, found its bitter taste unpleasant.
* A man in [[Lavaridge Town]] states that [[Charcoal]] is used for making herbal medicine. In game, however, it serves no medicinal purposes.
