Uses

Tamato Berry Purple Purple Purple Purple

Berry Crushing

At 100% performance, a Tamato Berry will contribute 150 units of powder.

Poffin cooking

At 100% performance, a Tamato Berry will produce a Level 13 (maybe higher) Spicy-Dry Poffin when cooking alone.

In the anime

Whenever an episode features berries, such as The Lotad Lowdown, or Berry, Berry Interesting, a character may come across this berry and decide to eat it. They instead experience its intense spiciness, and may end up with swollen lips for a while.

In Shocks and Bonds Brock says that an Ace Trainer named Katie who battled Ash in the Hoenn League likes Tamato Berries in her Spaghetti.

In Double-Time Battle Training!, Candice states that a treat called the Snowpoint Tamato Berry Ice Cream Bar has cold Ice Cream outside and spicy Tamato Berry Jelly on the inside, which Ash accidentally ate whole and which Dawn based her Daybreak Town Appeals on.

Trivia

  • The Tamato Berry is the only one of the EV-reducing Berries that did not have the same growth time as the rest in Generation III, and the only Berry of its flavor group that does not have the same growth time as the rest in Generation IV.
