Food items were introduced in the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon games. As the name suggests, they are items that can be eaten by Pokémon to restore the Belly stat. Unsurprisingly, Food items are necessary for exploration- when a Pokémon's stomach is empty, they will slowly lose HP until they get fed or faint, thus ruining any progress the Pokémon may have made through a dungeon. Luckily, Food items can be found almost everywhere- be it in caves, forests, or mountains, most dungeons will have an abundance of them. Additionally, they can also be bought in shops.


In Pokémon Mystery Dungeon 2, the Banana and Chestnut were taken out and the Golden Apple was added.

Gummis restore a varying amount of Belly points, which also depends on type. See this page for more details.

Gummis are a special food item that raise a Pokémon's IQ when eaten; the different colors of Gummis affect Pokémon depending on their type(s). When the Gummi eaten matches the Pokémon's type, it gives the best IQ boost, 5 points (7 in Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team). The amount of IQ gained depends on the type matchups if it doesn't match the Pokémon's type. In RB, however, these values are added together on dual-type Pokémon.

  • +15 if eating a Wonder Gummi
  • +4 if eating a Gummi strong against Pokémon's type (Ground-type eating Blue Gummi)
  • +3 if eating a Gummi neutral against Pokémon's type
  • +2 if eating a Gummi weak against Pokémon's type (Grass-type eating Brown Gummi)
  • +1 if eating a Gummi ineffective against Pokémon's type (Ghost-type eating White Gummi)
