Harvest (Japanese: しゅうかく Harvest) is an Ability introduced in Generation V. Three Pokémon have this Ability, all of which are Grass-type Pokémon. This Ability is exclusively obtained through the Dream World.


In battle

When the user uses a held Berry, there is a 50% chance of it being restored at the end of each turn. Harvest remembers the held Berry even if it fails to restore it or if the Pokémon has switched out. Harvest will always activate in intense sunlight.

Harvest can recover Berries consumed by Fling and Natural Gift, but not Berries lost by Thief, Covet, Trick, Switcheroo, Bestow, Bug Bite, or Pluck. Harvest cannot restore a Berry if it is collected by a Pokémon with Pickup.

Harvest will not activate more than once per turn. If the held Berry is consumed immediately after it is restored, Harvest will not be able to restore it again until the next turn.

Harvest can recover Berries consumed that were originally another Pokémon's, but transferred to the Pokémon with Harvest via Thief, Covet, Trick, Switcheroo, Bestow, or Pickup. However, a Pokémon may only have one consumed item (including non-Berries) at a time; if a Pokémon consumes a Berry, obtains another item and consumes it, the original consumed Berry cannot be restored, even if the second item is restored and swapped away. If the Pokémon with Harvest obtains an item after consuming a Berry, Harvest can still restore the old Berry as long as the Pokémon has no hold item and did not consume any other items (including non-Berries) since consuming the old Berry.

Outside of battle

Harvest has no effect outside of battle.
