Aspear Berries played a notable role in Cooking Up A Sweet Story. Abigail's Pikachu, Sugar, had been perfecting a way to use Thunderbolt on Aspear Berries so that they were tender enough to use in a cake. After Sugar had evolved into a Raichu, it was also revealed to have found a way to pulverize the Berries with its newly-learned Focus Punch.
- 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.
