I have plenty of Revives that would instantly heal a pokemon to half health. However, whenever I lose a fight, the pokemon will go down to 1HP and I have to use multiple potions to heal it instead.

What situations would lead to a 'knock out' and getting to use Revive instead? Is there a controllable way to do so for Pokemon that are about to lose a gym battle?


A Pokémon will faint if they lose a battle while fighting at a gym, or if they get kicked out while defending at a gym.

If you get too many revives you can always dump them to make more room to hold other things.

    This is correct. I didn't even realise you could battle until I got one. – Terry Jul 12 '16 at 9:49
