From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Dodrio Berry Picking is a mini game which can be played over the wireless communication system in Pokémon FireRed, LeafGreen, and Emerald.
The object is to use the left, right, and up buttons on the D-pad to make each of a Dodrio's three heads catch the falling Berries. If a player misses a Berry the meter empties. Players must try to catch as many purple Berries and as few green Berries as possible. Each Berry can fill up a box on a meter above the game.
This is one of two games included in the Joyful Game Corner Wireless gaming center located on Two Island in the Sevii Islands. The other playable game at the Joyful Game Corner is Pokémon Jump. Neither Pokémon Jump nor Dodrio Berry Picking are available for play on Ruby and Sapphire as Ruby and Sapphire do not use the Wireless Adapter System.
In order to play the game, players must have a Dodrio in their party. The game requires three to five players.
After each game, players may receive rare Berries, depending on the score of the individual or the team.

Red and Blue on the Path of Catching
The Dodrio Berry Picking game appeared as part of a training method designed by Kimberly in order to teach Red and Blue the ultimate moves Frenzy Plant and Blast Burn, respectively. During the training, Red and Blue had to ride on Dodrio whilst catching several falling Berries without letting them fall. In Pokémon Adventures, Dodrio Berry Picking was named the Path of Catching.
- There is a mini-game in Pokémon Stadium 2 that is similar to the Dodrio Berry Picking mini-game, known as Egg Emergency.
