Pokéblock case

Pokéblocks (Japanese: ポロック Polock) are colorful candy blocks made for Pokémon and are primarily used to increase a Pokémon's condition in one of five areas: Cool, Beauty, Cute, Smart, and/or Tough, for Pokémon Contests. The Generation IV equivalent of Pokéblocks are Poffins.

Pokéblocks are used to prepare a Pokémon for Pokémon Contests by raising its condition in the category it will participate in, as well as the two adjacent attributes. The better its condition in those areas and the better its luster, the better the Pokémon will perform in the preliminary judging. Pokéblocks are also used in Hoenn's Safari Zone in feeders to attract Pokémon of certain Natures. Also in the Safari Zone, Pokéblocks can be thrown at a Wild Pokémon to make it less likely to escape.

A Pokéblock case is required before Pokéblocks can be made. It stores them for later use, and can be obtained by speaking to a small girl in the Hyper Rank Contest Hall in Slateport City in Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire and in the Contest Hall in Lilycove City in Pokémon Emerald.

Making Pokéblocks

Pokéblocks are made by mixing berries with one to three other people in a Berry Blender, found at Contest Halls. Once berries are selected, the center of the blender will spin. When the blender's arrow points to the player's marker, the player can push the A button to make it spin faster. The faster it spins, the better the Pokéblock. If the button is pushed outside of the players marker, the arrow will spin slower, resulting in bad Pokéblocks. Once it is done, each participant receives a Pokéblock.

Flavor and Color

The flavor and color of Pokéblock depends on the berries used to make the Pokéblock. In the process of blending, berries with a sour flavor cancel out bitter, bitter cancels sweet, sweet cancels dry, dry cancels spicy, and spicy cancels sour. Pokémon of different natures will prefer different Pokéblocks flavors. If the Pokémon happily eats the Pokéblock, its condition will increase faster, whereas if it disdainfully eats the Pokéblock, its condition will rise slower. In the anime, like in the games, the Pokémon react on whether they like the flavor or not.

Level

The Level of a Pokéblock depends on the berries used and the speed of the Berry Blender. One can make higher-level Pokéblocks using different berries with the same kind of flavor. The Level will also increase as the speed of the blender increases. A higher level Pokéblock will increase the Pokémon's condition more than a lower level Pokéblock.

Feel

The Feel of a Pokéblock depends on the berries used and the number of people using the Berry Blender. The more people blending together, the lower the Feel. The Feel is determined by the average Smoothness of the berries used, subtract the number of people blending. Often the more rare berries (which typically have a stronger flavor) will have a higher Smoothness. A Pokémon can only eat so many Pokéblocks, as indicated by stars that eventually circle the Pokémon when checking its condition in the PokéNav. The higher the Feel of a Pokéblock, the faster it will fill a Pokémon up. More low-feel Pokéblocks can be fed to a Pokémon than high-feel ones.
