I am out of Skyloft and am trying to restore my hearts with the potion in my pouch but I have tried several things and nothing seems to be working.

I am not much of a gamer and could use all the help I can get.

    What game is this? – SaintWacko Feb 22 '13 at 15:21
  • Skyward Sword? Maybe? – Frank Feb 22 '13 at 15:21
  • I don't think it's a dupe - the other question is more about equipping stuff rather than drinking potions. – KatieK Feb 22 '13 at 17:31

    @KatieK Considering you need to equip the bottle in order to drink from it, I think that if it's not a dupe now, you just have to add "then press A to drink a potion" to the other answer to make it one. Oh wait, it already contains that. – Kareen Feb 22 '13 at 19:06

In order to use potions in Skyward Sword, hold down -, then point the Wiimote to your potion, then release -.

Once you have your potion out, just press A. Link will chug that red magic and you'll heal those precious hearts.

If you're running out of potions, just take a seat on a chair, tree stump, or any other chair-like object that brings up a prompt, and you'll slowly fill your hearts as well.


If you press the - button the Wii controller, you will take out your current item from your pouch.

If you hold the - key, it will show you all of the items you have in your pouch.

There are other ways to restore your hearts while your in Skyloft. You can sit on a bench, or you can slash around in bushes and find hearts.
