As this question says, in Avengers: Endgame, there were just enough particles

for two one test run and everyone to be able to get to the past and back.

But before they actually leave, Rocket hands Clint a shrunken Benatar.

Where did the particles to shrink it come from?

    it could be possible that they counted the pym particles for the trip excluding the ones needed to shrink benatar. – Shreedhar May 26 '19 at 18:15

Ant-Man's shrinking disks, probably

I think it's reasonable to think he still had some discs on him when he left the Quantum Realm.

In various scenes of Ant-Man, you can see that his shrinking/enbiggening discs are stored in pouches on his hips, for instance when he grabs the enbiggening disc to get out of the Quantum Realm:

In the post-credits scene of Ant-Man and the Wasp, Scott also has these pouches equipped when he goes to gather healing quantum particles:

Then, he will still have them when he comes out in Avengers: Endgame. True, there's no evidence these pouches actually contained them, but it's not a strecth to think it, either:

  • the discs are small, easy to carry around. Why not take some?
  • one of these discs, albeit a blue one (shrinking's red), saved his life once. Again, why not take some?

  • That seems reasonable, but wouldn’t they also be Powered by Pym(tm)? – Bobson May 26 '19 at 18:18

    @Bobson yeah? That doesn't mean they could have reverse-engineered them to get particles, though. Maybe they're embedded into the disc in such a way that they can only be used as that... discs. – Jenayah May 26 '19 at 18:32
