The Rare Candy is an item introduced in Generation I.

Effect

Using a Rare Candy on a Pokémon raises the Pokémon's level by 1, ending up with the minimum amount of Experience Points of that level after leveling up. It also raises the Pokémon's friendship by a little.

If used on a fainted Pokémon, it would be revived in addition to leveling up. Except for Shedinja, the revived Pokémon's HP is equal to the amount of HP increased.

Since Generation VIII, if used on a Level 100 Pokémon that evolves by leveling up and has met the evolution requirements, it would evolve.

Trivia

  • According to Junichi Masuda, humans can also eat Rare Candies but most don't like them because it is equivalent to eating dog food in real life.
