Food items can be eaten by Pokémon and restore the belly stat.
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, which also depends on type. See this page for more details.
Gummis are a special food item which 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.
- +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)
