Punishment Potion - A concept from the original planning stages. However, even this far along I have not yet had a need nor created a storyline for it. But since it does exist, and it applied here, I included it. The potion's concocted using another wolfsbane/monkshood variant for reprimanding naughty Wolvertonians (e.g. breaking rules, attacking, crime, repeatedly shirking duties). It reverts a 'wolf to human form and prohibits them from shifting for around twelve hours. More doses for longer punishment times. Rarely a cause for it though, since 'wolves tend to be grateful and productive within the town. Note: Punishment Potion does not and can not work during a full moon.

Sounds like a potion version of the Homorphus charm from Harry Potter - which can supposedly force a werewolf back to human form, though given it was mentioned by Gilderoy Lockhart, the effect or even existence of said charm is...dubious, to say the least.

In Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery Cecil Lee mentions having used it but that it only temporarily reverts a werewolf back to human form. Since Lockhart was known for stealing other wizards' accomplishments and claiming them for himself it seems very likely that it's real even if it likely does not work as Lockhert says.

Given Hogwarts Mystery is a mobile game, unless Rowling's said otherwise, I don't see that being an official part of the universe.

True, but I suspect the homorphus charm does exist since Lockhart was known for stealing the accomplishments of other witches and wizards and claiming them for his own. It can't work like he says it does, though.

On the other side if he made the charm up, whatever the original wizard did to the werewolf is likely to have been deadly if he's not lying about it permanently getting rid of the werewolf.

I know nothing of that. So it's not a reference. It's me thinking and planning "Hmmm. How else can I use wolfsbane?"
