Inventor and fall

It is possible that she only prepares it, as Pepperup Potion. I'm not sure about the "fall". The citation on the card is "Madam Pomfrey came over at that moment" and if you search this sentence in the books, it's in PS chapter 14, when Ron is at the hospital wing because Norbert has bitten him. --   Famini    talk    contribs   08:54, September 24, 2011 (UTC)

The Trading Card Games quotes are often taken out of context from the books, to describe something that's not even in the books: take, for instance the card "Venomous Tentacular Juice", which quote is "His insides were burning..." This comes from chapter 6 of Chamber of Secrets ("Harry pushed his porridge away. His insides were burning with guilt. Mr. Weasley was facing an inquiry at work. After all Mr. and Mrs. Weasley had done for him over the summer…). As you can see, the book quote has nothing to do with Venomous Tentacula juice. The image of the "Pomfrey's Pick-Me-Up" implies Pomfrey is administering it to a student who has just fell from his broomstick. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 10:31, September 24, 2011 (UTC)

It's not always the case: Incarcifors shows a troll and the quote is about the second troll of Quirinus Quirrell, it's possible that Incarcifors is one spell used by Quirrell against the troll (even if finally he had a bloody lump, the troll is not only prisoner). I don't think that we should always consider quotes "off topic". We could say that Pick-Me-Up could be a generic potion when a people has a shock (bite, fall...) for example, to contain the two elements. There's new material in HPTCG, but there's a lot of elements of the books too. Sometimes I think that illustrators had only a few words (out of context) of the books to make an illustration and at the base it's possible that this potion is against bites exclusively, we can't retire this eventuality. --   Famini    talk    contribs   12:00, September 24, 2011 (UTC)
