"If you have brewed it correctly, then the results should be most interesting. That was worth all the effort. You can go now."
Severus Snape dismisses his class after Harry Potter takes this potion.[src]

Pompion Potion is a potion that when drunk, temporarily turns the drinker's head into a pumpkin. It is learnt in first year Potions at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.[1]

In order to brew this potion, one has to crush the Flitterby Moth into a pulp and add it to the cauldron, then stirr the mixture clockwise until it turns green. Next, the Bouncing Bulb has to be ground with a mortar and added to the cauldron. The mixture has to be stirred anti-clockwise until it turns red before slicing the foxglove and, too, add it to the mixture. Stirring clockwise until it turns orange completes the potion.[1]

Behind the scenes

  • During the Wizard Chess Challenge later on in the game, one of the questions asked is to identify the correct ingredient used in this potion. However, both foxglove and a Flitterby Moth are shown. Only the moth is accepted as a correct answer.
  • Given that every potion requires a magical component to complete the brewing process, the most likely spell needed to complete this potion is the Melofors Jinx.
