There are several types of Mint in the game, and all of them have different effects on your Pokemon. For example, the Hasty Mint will increase the Speed stat of the Pokemon that it is used on, while at the same time lowering its Defense stat. This means that it is best used on a Pokemon that relies on its Speed more than it does on its Defense. Alternatively, you can use it on a slow Pokemon to give it a much-needed boost in haste. There are many possibilities that you need to consider here.
