The Aspear Berry played a role in Cooking Up A Sweet Story. During the episode, Abigail's Pikachu, Sugar, was perfecting a way to use Thunderbolt on Aspear Berries so that they were tender enough to use in a cake.

Trivia

  • This Berry's Natural Gift type is Ice; coincidentally, it also acts in the same way as an Ice Heal when used on a Pokémon.
