Berries (Japanese: きのみ Berries) are small, juicy, fleshy fruit. As in the real world, a large variety exists in the Pokémon world, with a large range of flavors, names, and effects. First found in the Generation II games, many Berries have since become critical held items in battle, where their various effects include HP and status condition restoration, stat enhancement, and even damage negation.

In Generation II

A Berry tree in Gen II

In their introductory generation, Berries were somewhat hard to obtain, with a very limited amount of trees scattered across the Kanto and Johto regions, each giving out only one Berry of one of the ten types each day. Berries regenerated at midnight every day, and could be picked at any time. Wild Pokémon often held Berries, while several could be won as prizes in certain competitions. Apricorns are seen by many as similar to these Berries, in regards to their maturity time, availability, and other aspects.

List of Berries

Main article: Berry (Generation II)

The main Berry list from Generation II incorporated several functions of different healing items into the group of ten Berries. The names were simplistic, often describing only what the Berry itself did, with names like PRZCureBerry and PSNCureBerry standing out to many.

In Generation III

Much as other aspects of the Pokémon franchise received their most major updates in the transition from Generation II to Generation III, the Berry system was completely overhauled in Generation III. Each of the Berries introduced in Generation III was given a number, not unlike the Pokédex numbers given to Pokémon, with the first ten in this ordering system having identical or nearly-identical effects to the Berries of Generation II. Several more Berries, found at the end of the listing, are extremely rare, with effects similar to items like X Attack. A majority of Berries, however, find their only use in being made into Pokéblocks for Contests. In the same way most Pokémon resemble real-world animals, these Berries typically resemble real-world fruit (though not all fruit represented are Berries, botanically or in common parlance, in real life). Descriptive tags detail some of their traits, much like a Pokédex entry, which are often shared with their real-world counterparts.

Rather than regenerating at midnight and only producing one fruit, all Berries now have specific growth times - ranging from four hours to four days - and four stages of maturity which advance at quarters of the full maturity time. The Berries can be roughly grouped into sets with similar growth times, yields, flavors profiles, and uses. Berries may also be planted wherever there is soft soil now; a picked Berry plant now disappears, leaving behind soft soil, rather than staying fixed in the same spot forever.

In this generation, soft soil only exists in Hoenn, however, and is not found in the Kanto or Orre regions. Thus, in Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald, Berries that the player obtains can be repeatedly grown in any patch of soft soil, but not in FireRed and LeafGreen. However, in FireRed and LeafGreen, many varieties of Berries can be repeatedly obtained in the Sevii Islands' Berry Forest, where certain Berries regularly fall off trees and regenerate themselves.

In Pokémon FireRed, LeafGreen, and Emerald, Berries can be ground up into Berry Powder, which can be exchanged for herbal medicine or vitamins in Cerulean City or Slateport City.

In Pokémon Emerald, six Berries that were previously only usable for making Pokéblocks were given an additional use. If used on a Pokémon, the Pomeg, Kelpsy, Qualot, Hondew, Grepa, and Tamato Berries would now lower its effort values and raise its friendship.

List of Berries

The Generation III Berry list has its core in the first ten Berries in order, with the ones coming last in sequence being among the most rare and sought after for their in-battle effect. A majority of these Berries are used solely for Pokéblock making, falling between those with other effects in the listing.

e-Reader Berries

The following Berries exist only in the games if the specific e-Reader card is swiped while the e-Reader is linked to a Ruby or Sapphire game cartridge. These Berries cannot be traded to other Generation III games, and if held by a Pokémon sent to Generation IV through Pal Park, it will become an Enigma Berry when the Pokémon is recaught. As the e-Reader's lifespan was much shorter than expected by Nintendo, only two series of these special Berry e-cards were released, the first both in Japan and internationally, and the second only in Japan.

In Generation IV

Dawn poses with her Razz and Bluk trees

Much like most other aspects of Generation III, Berries remained very much the same in Generation IV, with the main set of 43 carried over to the new games. The e-Reader Berries, perhaps due to their relative obscurity and exclusivity to Ruby and Sapphire (as the e-Reader was incompatible with the international releases of FireRed, LeafGreen, and Emerald), are not present in this generation, though one of them shares its name in all languages with one of the newly introduced Berries.

A total of 21 new Berries were introduced in Generation IV, with 16 of them weakening a super effective move of a certain type used on the holder, and a 17th weakening any Normal-type move used on the holder. The remaining four are exclusive to events, being held by event Pokémon given out in conjunction with the four Diamond & Pearl series movies. This brings the total number of Berries to 64.

Several Berries' growth times were changed in Generation IV, most notably that of the Tamato Berry, which formerly grew in the same amount of time as the others in its flavor group, now grows in the same amount of time as the rest of the EV Berries. Other Berries whose growth times changed remained with the same growth times as the rest of their flavor group. Many Berries also received edits to their tree styles, with different palettes used to give each tree a more unique appearance, rather than the similar appearance several, most notably Razz and Bluk, had.

In addition to the base growth time changes, caring for Berries now involves maintaining moist soil. When first planted, the soil will be fully moist. Each hour, the Berry plant will lose moisture based on its drying rate, turning orange when half dry, and sandy when completely dry. Watering a Berry plant makes it completely moist again.

Special mulch was introduced that could be spread over a patch of soft soil to alter the growth rate, drying rate, the length of time Berries stay on the plant, and then number of times the plant will regrow. This mulch is available only at the Berry Master's house in Sinnoh or at the flower shop in Goldenrod City in Johto.

Similar to how Berries were used in Generation III to make Pokéblocks, Berries can be used to make Poffins, which achieves a similar condition-enhancing effect. Aside from this, those which have no in-battle effect can be traded in for Accessories to be used to dress up Pokémon for Super Contests and pictures.

While in Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum, soft soil could be found in most places in Sinnoh, much like in Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald, no soft soil exists in Johto or Kanto, visited in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver. The Berry Pots, however, holds four portable patches of soft soil, allowing the player to carry their Berry trees with them anywhere.

List of Berries

The Generation IV Berry list is exactly the same as the Generation III list, but with all Berries falling after Belue moved back 17 places, to accommodate the type-resistant Berries. The other four event Berries are added to the end, after the Enigma Berry. All Berries now have some in-battle or out-of-battle use, but can also be used to make Poffins.

In Generation V

Mew visiting the Dream World Garden, where a blooming Sitrus tree can be spotted.

Unlike most games since Ruby and Sapphire, when the mechanic of growing Berries was introduced, Black and White does not allow players to plant and grow Berries in Unova. Berries cannot be transferred from another region using the Poké Transfer, but some wild Unova Pokémon (like Minccino) can be found holding them, and the player may obtain them as gifts from NPCs or Trainers (such as Pokémon Rangers), or purchase them from Florist shops at Join Avenue in Black 2 and White 2.

Players were able to plant Berries in the Pokémon Dream World using the garden found in the area to the left of their Dream World home. Berries took 50% longer to grow in the Dream World compared to their growth rates in Generation IV. Two rows were available from the beginning for players to plant their Berries in, with each row containing spaces for three Berries. As the player accumulated Dream Points Diglett would show up to expand the garden by plowing a new row (starting with a third row added at 900 points), up to a maximum of ten rows.

As with Generation IV, the Berry plots required watering or they would dry out; a player could water their own Berries as often as needed (any time the garden soil is not described as "very moist"), and when visiting another player's home could water their Berries as well (up to 20 times for each voyage to the Dream World). This process of growing Berries in concentrated patches made growing and cultivating more efficient as a counterbalance to the slower growth rate. Berry plants never died and resprouted in the Dream World—they remained in their fruit-bearing stage until the Berries were picked.

Berries may be sold to an item maniac on Route 5 for various amounts, depending on the kind of Berry. This is also the sole use for Berries that do not serve a purpose in battles.

Within the Dream World, combinations of Berries could be traded for Décor.

If the bag is sorted, it uses the same order of Berries in Generation IV except that all Berries that do not serve a purpose are moved to the end of the list.

In Generation VI

Main article: Berry fields

In Pokémon X and Y, Berry farming is managed from one location: A Berry farm located just south of Kalos Route 7. The field contains six rows with six plots each, allowing the player to cultivate a large number of Berry plants at once. It also contains two composters, into which the player can insert combinations of three Berries to acquire Mulch with varying effects on Berry growth.

Berries themselves can be acquired from large Berry trees growing along the various Kalos routes, from certain NPCs, and from natural objects. The large Berry trees will drop a new Berry for the player to pick up on midnight of the day a week after the last Berry was picked up.

Three new Berries have been introduced this generation.

Proper care of Berry plants

After a Berry is planted in soft soil, a player can ignore it until it bears fruit, which will often yield more Berries than initially planted, as most Berry trees will bear more than one fruit at minimum. Truly effective care, however, requires that the player pay close attention to the growing times, watering it, and picking it when it bears fruit so as to reap the benefit.

In Generation III

In general, plants must be watered at least once per growth period in order to get the maximum yield. When a plant is fully-grown, the player has an amount of time equal to the full growth time of the plant to pick the Berry; otherwise the plant will return to its "sprouting" stage. This can be done up to 9 times (for a total of 10 plantings) before the plant is permanently lost.

Formula

Berry formula

The formula that the games use to decide how many fruits a specific Berry tree will bear is to the right of the page. This formula is calculated as follows:

  • a is the maximum number of Berries that can appear on the plant
  • b is the minimum number of Berries that can appear on the plant
  • c is an integer randomly chosen between a and b, inclusive
  • d is the number of growth stages during which the plant was watered

This formula is only used if the player has watered the plant at least once during its growth. If the plant is left to its own devices, it will always bear the minimum number of fruit.

Stages

After they are planted in soft soil, all Berries have four stages of growth before reaching their final, harvestable stage. Each stage of growth lasts a quarter of the Berry's full growth time. When the player interacts with a Berry plant, a message will display describing the Berry's current stage of growth.

The table below is based on a Lum Berry (planted with no Mulch, for Generation IV).

Tree Time Generation III message Generation IV message
AllTreeSeed.png 00:00 - 11:59 One Lum Berry was planted here. A Lum Berry was planted here.
AllTreeSprout.png 12:00 - 23:59 Lum has sprouted. The Lum Berry has sprouted.
LumTreeTaller.png 24:00 - 35:59 This Lum plant is growing taller. The Lum Berry plant is growing bigger.
LumTreeBloom.png 36:00 - 47:59 These Lum flowers are blooming cutely/prettily/very beautifully. This Lum Berry plant is in bloom!
LumTreeBerry.png 48:00 - 96:00 There are (number) Lum Berries! There are (number) Lum Berries!

In Generation IV

The left three plants (Razz, Bluk, and Nanab) have, in order: very dry soil, dry soil, and moist soil. They have been unwatered for 4, 2, and 0 hours

The mechanics of Berry growth was expanded in Generation IV, where it is no longer sufficient to water a plant in each stage of growth for some Berries (conversely, for some Berries it is sufficient to water every two stages of growth). This is due to a new moisture mechanic introduced in these games.

Each plant has a moisture rating that ranges from 0 to 100. When a Berry is planted or watered, the moisture rating will be reset to 100. Every hour afterwards, the moisture rating is deducted by a value specific to the Berry that is planted; this value is increased by 50% with the Growth Mulch and decreased by 50% with the Damp Mulch. Should the moisture rating be 0 when this occurs, however, the maximum yield of the plant is decreased by 1 (to a minimum of 2). Players are given a visual indication of the moisture rating of the plant, as the soil will lighten once the moisture rating falls below 50, and will appear to be dry once the moisture rating is 0.

As with Generation III, players have an amount of time equal to the full growth time of the Berry before a fully-grown plant returns to its "sprouting stage". This time is raised by 50% if the player uses Stable Mulch. The use of Gooey Mulch will allow a total of 14 resproutings (for a total of 15 plantings) instead of 9 before the plant is permanently lost.

In Generation VI

In Generation VI, some new mechanics were added and some were tweaked.

The primary change is the introduction of new complications: weeds and pests. Every 2 hours after a Berry was planted, weeds may appear around it. Once a Berry grows past its seedling stage, pests may also appear on the plant every 2 hours (as indicated by the plant shaking). Weeds and pests may appear on the same plant (at the same time, even), but more weeds or pests will never appear until the previous ones are removed. Removing weeds and pests from a plant increases its final yield (as does watering the plant).

The other significant addition is mutations. In special cases, planting different types of Berries in adjacent plots may result in a spontaneous mutation, with one Berry on the tree (or trees) being a different variety than was planted. For example, cultivating Oran and Pecha Berries next to each other may yield Qualot Berries in addition to the expected Oran and Pecha harvest. A scientist will document any such phenomena, appearing on the farm when a mutation first occurs.

Soil is now either moist or dry, with no point in between. All Berries now dry out in the same time if the same Mulch is used on them. With no Mulch, Rich Mulch, or Surprise Mulch, the drying time is 24 hours, while with Boost Mulch or Amaze Mulch it is 4 hours.

There is also no way to shorten a Berry's growth time now. All Mulches either affect yield or the chance of mutation (or both).

The player can estimate a plant's Berry yield as soon as it starts budding, based on the number of buds or blossoms it shows. Depending on the care the plant receives, that number may change. A normal Berry yield will always show an odd number of buds, but if there is a mutation, an extra bud will appear, making the number even. A plant with 5 or 6 buds will yield at least 3/5 of its maximum yield (not counting mutated Berries), while a plant with 3 or 4 buds will yield less.

Formula

A Berry's final yield depends on four essential factors:

  • Base yield, made up of:
    • The Berry's minimum yield (when it is not watered or cared for)
    • +2 if the player used Rich Mulch
  • Watering: the number of times the player waters the plant, multiplied by the Berry's watering value.
  • Weeding: the number of times the player weeds the plant, multiplied by the Berry's weeding value.
  • Pest removal: the number of times the player removes pests from the plant, multiplied by the Berry's pest removal value.

The sum of these values determines the plant's yield when it is harvested (limited by the Berry's maximum yield).

Since Boost and Amaze Mulch shorten a plant's drying time, they allow the player to water the plant more often, thereby making it easier to achieve higher yields.

Stages

Berries now have six stages of growth before they reach their final, harvestable stage. Each stage of growth lasts one-sixth of the Berry's total growth time.

The table below is based on an Oran Berry, which grows in 24 hours.

Tree Time Message
00:00 - 03:59 This is where you planted the Oran Berry!
04:00 - 07:59 The Oran is sprouting!
08:00 - 11:59 The Oran's seedling is growing well!
12:00 - 15:59 The Oran's trunk is getting bigger!
16:00 - 19:59 The Oran tree has buds!
20:00 - 23:59 The Oran tree is in bloom!
24:00 - ... The Oran Berry tree has <X> Berries!

If the Berry tree includes a mutated Berry in its final stage, the message will instead say:

"The tree also has a Berry crop caused by a sudden mutation! They are:
<Planted> Berries: <X>
<Mutation> Berries: <Y>"

If any Berry plant is left untouched for a month after it has fully matured, it will become withered, but examining the plant will reveal a new sprout beneath it.

Reason: Explorers & Gates to Infinity Sitrus buy price, locations.

In the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series, Berries fill the same role as regular medicine does in the core games. Due to this, the Oran and Sitrus Berry behave slightly different.

Berries can be found in dungeons or bought from shops in all games in the series.

In the PokéPark series

In PokéPark Wii: Pikachu's Adventure, Berries are used as a form of currency to pay for Attractions or training. One can earn Berries by clearing Skill Games or by earning the Bonus in an Attraction. When found on the field, green Berries are worth 10, red Berries are worth 50, and golden Berries are worth 100. There also exists a Big Berry, which some Pokémon desire to eat. They will become friends with Pikachu if one is carried to them. One Pokémon that eats Big Berries is Munchlax.

Berries return as a form of currency in PokéPark 2: Wonders Beyond, with minor changes. Attractions are now free, but now items can be bought and sold for Berries, and other Pokémon will give the player Berries upon befriending, often as a token for beating them in certain challenges. Pokémon can also be re-challenged after befriending them, and they will continue to give the player Berries provided the player continues to win. On the field, Green Berries are worth 1, Red Berries are worth 30, and Gold Berries are worth 100. Big Berries are replaced by Stinkberries, which displease most Pokémon (including the one carrying it), but Munchlax loves them.

In Pokémon Battrio

In the TCG

Berries were introduced in the Trading Card Game in the Neo Genesis expansion, released shortly after Pokémon Gold and Silver themselves. All of them are Pokémon Tools, a special subclass of Trainer card that may be attached to a Pokémon in play, much in the same way that items can be held by Pokémon in the games. Most of the TCG Berries are in fact Berries from the games, however, several of them are unique to the TCG.

There are also Basic Pokémon cards that have Berries as held items, which were introduced in the Mysterious Treasures expansion. These held items work in the same fashion as Poké-Bodies, in that the effect the item provides is active whenever the Pokémon is in play.

In the anime

Pinkan Berries

In the anime, while several ordinary fruits from the real world have and continue to be featured, Berries have appeared on occasion as well, suggesting that the Berries are not the only fruit in the Pokémon world. Additionally, the Berries that have made an appearance in the games are not the only Berries featured. Pinkan Berries appeared, central to the plot of In the Pink, where they had the amazing property of changing a Pokémon's coloration completely to pink, and due to the rarity of strangely-colored Pokémon, only grew on an isolated island in the Orange Archipelago that was kept secret to prevent poachers from stealing Pokémon who lived there. A Snover was also shown to grow Berries on its body in The Lonely Snover!, though they had no strange effects when consumed by humans or Pokémon. Rinka Berries were central to the plot in the Pikachu short PK23. These Berries were said to clear one's throat and restore the consumer's voice.
