Every Item in Pokemon Go & What They Do

Pokemon Go is one of the most item-heavy spinoff titles in the Pokemon franchise. For every mechanic, such as Mega Evolution or any other specialized evolution, there is a corresponding item to go along with it.

If you’ve had Pokemon Go for a while and are just now coming back to it for the first time in years, many of these new items may seem confusing. Or, if you’re just getting started with the game, you may be inundated with items, wondering where to use each of them. This guide relays every item you can get in Pokemon Go and their uses. Since inventory space is limited, you can utilize this guide to determine which items you want to keep and which are better off just being discarded for now.

All Potions in Pokemon Go

Potions and Revives are your main way of restoring Pokemon back into tip-top shape after they’ve fainted. Without Revives, you can’t use Potions on them to recover their health. Since Revives are relatively rare in comparison to items like PokeBalls and Potions in Pokemon Go, my best advice is to reserve your Revives for the hardest hitters on your team, when they happen to fall.

Item Name Description Use Requirements to Use How To Obtain
Potion Heals your Pokemon by 20 HP. For healing your Pokemon. Level 5 PokeStops, Level Up
Super Potion Heals your Pokemon by 50 HP. For healing your Pokemon. Level 10 PokeStops, Level Up
Hyper Potion Heals Pokemon by 200 HP. For healing Pokemon. Level 15 PokeStops, Level Up
Max Potion Heals a Pokemon fully. For healing your Pokemon. Level 25 PokeStops, Level Up
Revive Revives your Pokemon, restoring half of their health. For healing your Pokemon. Level 5 PokeStops, Level Up
Max Revive Revives a Pokemon, returning their health to full. For healing your Pokemon. Level 30 PokeStop, Level Up

All PokeBalls in Pokemon Go

PokeBalls are necessary for everything you do in Pokemon Go. Since there are comparatively fewer battles than in mainline Pokemon games, Pokemon Go is much more dependent on PokeBalls. It’s a good thing that you can find them almost anywhere; I’ve received these as Gifts, found them at PokeStops, or obtained PokeBalls as rewards for Levelling Up.

Item Name Description Use Requirements to Use How To Obtain
Poke Ball An item used to capture a Pokemon. Has a standard rate of success. For Pokemon capture. None Shops, Level Ups, or PokeStops
Great Ball An item used to capture a Pokemon. Has a higher chance of success than a Poke Ball. For Pokemon capture. Level 12 Shops, Level Ups, or PokeStops

Eggs and the Incubators that keep them warm for you, are important in Pokemon Go. Eggs are unique in that they can provide Pokemon for you that you normally might not see in your local area. Location exclusiveness is moot here, so with every Egg you run the chance of finding a super rare Pokemon. In Pokemon Go, there are a number of Incubation chambers and Egg types that you can work with to get some rare Pokemon, such as:

Item Name Description Use Requirements to Use How To Obtain
Egg A Pokemon Egg that will one day hatch. Comes in 2, 5, 7, 10, and 12 km distance requirements to hatch. For expanding your PokeDex. None PokeStops

Food items are useful, both for Pokemon that are yours and Pokemon that aren’t. You can use Berries for all kinds of tasks. I like giving them to my Buddy as a snack or using a berry to encourage a Pokemon while they’re in a Gym. Different Berries have various ways of helping you, while Poffins are beneficial treats for your Pokemon that can improve their happiness.

Whether you want to level up your Pokemon as fast as possible or teach them a few new moves, items like TMs and Rare Candies have your back. I’ve used Shadow Shards and Purified Gems to help turn the Shadow Pokemon I’ve rescued into normal Pokemon again, so that they can become full-fledged members of my team.

Whether you want Water, Grass, or Electric types, there’s a Lure for various Pokemon out there for you to collect and use.

All Evolutionary Items in Pokemon Go

There are plenty of evolutionary items in Pokemon Go that help Pokemon grow from their smallest to their mightiest forms. Items that help particular Pokemon evolve, like the Magnetic Lure Module, Sinnoh Stone, and Up-Grade, are all important for game balance, which is why sometimes these items are hard to find. There are a ton of them to obtain, I’ve found these items through quests or just by Pokemon Go giving it to me. The items that you can get in Pokemon Go include the following:
