In the anime
In Oshawott's Lost Scalchop!, Ash's Oshawott used an Iapapa Berry as a temporary replacement for his lost scalchop. However, it ultimately failed when Ash's Pikachu used Thunderbolt on it, and it was burned and split in half, revealing it to be a stone fruit. Iris and Cilan tasted the Berry afterwards and claimed that it brought out the flavor.
