In the anime

In the anime

In Beating the Bustle and Hustle!, James said that there was Old Gateau and Lum Berries on the menu in the Sinnoh Pokémon Hustle Refreshment Room.

Two episodes later, the actual Berries made an appearance. Team Rocket stole some from Lulu. Jessie was later going to use them in battle, but unknown to her, her Pokémon was the one who should eat it. Because of this, she was the one who ate it.

Lum Berries appeared again in An Egg Scramble!, where they were one of the things Khoury was selling at his stall in the Johto Festival.

A couple of Lum Berries made an appearance in Grooming Furfrou!, being presented by Jessica.

Trivia

  • The Lum Berry is the only Berry with a unique growth period; all other Berries share theirs with at least two others. This is only true in Generation IV, however, as the Leppa Berry was the only Berry that grew in 16 hours in Generation III.
