The Berry Master's House in Generation III

The Berry Master (Japanese: Generation III: きのみめいじん Berry Master, IV: きのみじいさん Grandpa Berry) is a character from the Pokémon games, first appearing in Generation II. The Berry Master seems to be an expert in growing and caring for Berries, and he distributes them as gifts.


In Generation II, the Berry Master is located on Route 30, in a small house with a Berry tree growing next to it. The Berry Master of Generation II only gives the player one plain Berry; however, he also explains how Berries work.

In the Generation II remakes, there is no Berry Master, as there are no soft soil patches in Kanto or Johto. However, shards can be traded for Berries in Violet City and Fuchsia City.


The Berry Master and his wife in Generation III

In Generation III, the Berry Master is located on Route 123, living in a house with a large garden with twelve spaces for Berries nearby, split into six patches of two spaces each; the most of any one location in the game. Every day, the Berry Master of Generation III gives players two Berries. These are randomly selected from the twenty-first through thirtieth Berries obtainable in Hoenn (Pomeg Berry to Nomel Berry).

In the Generation VI remakes, the Berry Master and his wife retain their house on Route 123, next to a new garden. The area has been expanded to a wide circular area surrounding a fenced flower garden. This new location features double the available soil space from the original, with twenty-four berry spaces for berries, split into four patches of six spaces each.

There is also a man present in the Berry Master's house in these remakes, who will give the player a Gracidea upon being presented with a Shaymin in the player's party.

Berry Master's wife

In Hoenn, the Berry Master's wife asks the player about good sayings once per day. She rewards the player with a rare Berry when she is told about each of five special phrases, but will only give a rare Berry once for each special phrase.

In Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald, the player tells her a two-word phrase once per day using the easy chat system. If the player tells her one of five special phrases, they are given one of five rare Berries. Four of the phrases contain one unlockable word: the player cannot say CONTEST or SUPER until they have entered the Hall of Fame, and the player cannot say LATIOS or LATIAS until they have seen that Pokémon. If the player tells her any other phrase or any phrase that she has been told before, she will give the player a random Berry from among the first ten (Cheri Berry to Sitrus Berry).

In Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, the Berry Master's wife prompts the player with half of the phrase, replacing one of the words with SOMETHING. The player is required to tell her only the missing word (not the whole phrase) using free text entry with a 16-character limit; this entry is case sensitive, so the player must enter the word in all capital letters. If the player tells her anything other than the prompted word, she will give the player a random Berry from among the first ten (Cheri Berry to Sitrus Berry). After the player has told her all five special phrases, she gives the player a random Berry from among the first ten without asking for a special phrase at all.

The Berry Master's wife also mentions four grandchildren, the four girls at the Pretty Petal flower shop on Route 104.

Interestingly, the woman located on Route 120 also specifically mentions that she will get more berries from the Berry Master.

In Generation IV, the Berry Master lives on Route 208. The Berry Master, his wife, and a young girl live together in a small house. Their garden is smaller than the one in Generation III, only having four patches of soil. Unlike Generation III, the Berry Master only gives out one Berry daily, randomly selected from the first through thirtieth Berries (Cheri Berry to Nomel Berry).

Berry Master's wife

The Berry Master's wife is a shy woman that sells Mulch. She stutters a lot in her speech, but does know a lot about Mulch. She makes the Mulch herself and sells it to people. There are four types of mulch that she sells:

Growth Mulch Growth Mulch
Pokémon Dollar200
Damp Mulch Damp Mulch
Pokémon Dollar200
Stable Mulch Stable Mulch

Gooey Mulch Gooey Mulch
