Pokéblock case

Pokéblocks (Japanese: ポロック Polock) are colorful candy blocks made for Pokémon and are primarily used to increase a Pokémon's condition in one of five areas: Cool, Beauty, Cute, Smart, and/or Tough, for Pokémon Contests. The Generation IV equivalent of Pokéblocks are Poffins.

Pokéblocks are used to prepare a Pokémon for Pokémon Contests by raising its condition in the category it will participate in, as well as the two adjacent attributes. The better its condition in those areas and the better its luster, the better the Pokémon will perform in the preliminary judging. Pokéblocks are also used in Hoenn's Safari Zone in feeders to attract Pokémon of certain Natures. Also in the Safari Zone, Pokéblocks can be thrown at a Wild Pokémon to make it less likely to escape.

A Pokéblock case is required before Pokéblocks can be made. It stores them for later use, and can be obtained by speaking to a small girl in the Hyper Rank Contest Hall in Slateport City in Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire and in the Contest Hall in Lilycove City in Pokémon Emerald.

Using Pokéblocks

Feeding a Pokéblock to a Pokémon increases its condition by amounts dependent upon the Berries used in its creation and influenced by the skill it was made with. A Pokéblock's feel limits how many Pokéblocks a Pokémon can eat. Its level indicates the amount by which its strongest flavor will affect the Pokémon's condition, while its color—detailed in the following section—can indicate which flavor is its strongest.

Feel

For every Pokéblock that a Pokémon eats, the value of the Pokéblock's feel is added to a number associated with the Pokémon. This number has a maximum of 255, and when it reaches that point, the Pokémon will no longer be able to eat any more Pokéblocks. The size of this number is indicated by a ring of stars that appears around the Pokémon in the PokéNav as it is fed more Pokéblocks. The ring starts at 1 star and adds a new star after every 29 points of feel, up to a maximum of 10 stars.

Level

A Pokéblock's level indicates the strength of its strongest flavor. If a Pokéblock contains more than one flavor, the only way to know the strength of the others is to calculate them based on the Berries that went into making the Pokéblock, as detailed below.

When a Pokémon is fed a Pokéblock, its condition in each category will be increased depending on the strengths of the flavors in the Pokéblock and which categories they correspond to, up to the maximum of 255 per stat.

If a Pokémon eats a Pokéblock "happily" or "with disdain", the strength of the primary flavor will be multiplied by 1.1 or 0.9 (respectively, and with the result rounded down) before raising the associated condition. If the Pokémon shows neither reaction, no flavor will receive any modification before being added to its condition. A Pokémon's reaction depends on the strengths of its liked and disliked flavors in the Pokéblock. If the flavor it likes is stronger than the flavor it dislikes, it will like the Pokéblock, while it will dislike the Pokéblock if the opposite is true; if those flavors have the same strength, however, the Pokémon will react neutrally.

Making Pokéblocks

May with her "May's Purple Surprise"

In Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald, Pokéblocks are made by mixing Berries with one to three other people in a Berry Blender, found at Contest Halls. Once Berries are selected, the center of the blender will spin. When the blender's arrow points to the player's marker, the player can push the A button to make it spin faster. The faster it spins, the better the Pokéblock. If the button is pushed outside of the player's marker, the arrow will spin slower, resulting in bad Pokéblocks. Once it is done, each participant receives a Pokéblock.

In Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, the player is given a Pokéblock Kit, which allows the player to create Pokéblocks from up to four Berries. It acts similarly to the Berry Blender.

Flavors

The flavors in a Pokéblock depend on the flavors of the Berries that went into making it and the highest speed achieved during the blending. If two or more of the same Berry are used, the resulting Pokéblock will always be a low quality black Pokéblock, which is automatically assigned three random flavors of strength 2. For an overview of the influence that various Berries will have on flavors, refer to the list of Berries by flavor.

If each Berry used in the Pokéblock is different from the others, the flavors in the resulting Pokéblock are calculated as follows:

  1. Add together the respective flavors of all Berries being used (sum all spicy values, all dry values, and so on).
    For instance, if Bluk, Nanab, and Wepear Berries are blended, the result of this step would be spicy: -1; dry: -1; sweet: 0; bitter: 1; and sour: 1.
  2. Multiply the numbers from the previous result by 10 and subtract 1 from each flavor for every flavor that is negative.
    Continuing the example above, the result of this step would be: spicy: -12; dry: -12; sweet: -2; bitter: 8; and sour: 8.
  3. Set any numbers from the previous result that were negative to 0, then multiply them all by X and round the result to the nearest number, where X is MaxRPM / 333 + 1 rounded down to the nearest hundredth place (that is, keeping the first two decimal places).
    Continuing with the established example, if the maximum RPM reported at the end of blending is 110 RPM, then X = 1.33 and the result of this step—and the final values for the strengths of the flavors in the Pokéblock—is spicy: 0; dry: 0; sweet: 0; bitter: 11; and sour: 11.

Color

In most cases, the color of a Pokéblock depends on the number of flavors that are present in the Pokéblock and on the strength of those flavors. The exception is if two or more of the same Berry are used to make a Pokéblock; in this case, the resulting Pokéblock will always be black. Black Pokéblocks are automatically set to have three random flavors of strength 2.

Feel

The feel of a Pokéblock is determined by the average smoothness of the Berries that went into making it and the number of people who participated in making it, as shown below:

Feel = ( Smoothness1 + ... + Smoothnessn ) / n - People

The result of this calculation is rounded down. The maximum value for a Pokéblock's feel is 99. The smoothness for various Berries can be found in the section below.

Blending with NPCs

Pokéblocks may be made with friends or with the assistance of in-game NPCs. In Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire, the player may find one NPC who will assist in Berry Blending at the Verdanturf Town or Fallarbor Town Contest Halls, two NPCs in Slateport City's Contest Hall, and three NPCs in Lilycove City's Contest Hall. In Pokémon Emerald, there are three Berry Blending machines with one to three NPCs who will assist in Berry Blending all in the Lilycove City Contest Hall, and the Blend Master will occasionally appear as well.

The Berries these NPCs will contribute follow a repeating pattern. They only break this pattern when the player is using the same Berry that they would, in order to avoid producing a black Pokéblock. As an example, if the player uses an Oran Berry (no. 7) or a Wiki Berry (no. 12) at the 4-person Berry Blender, the NPCs there will add Chesto, Aspear, and Rawst Berries. If the player adds a Persim Berry (no. 8), the NPCs will add Pecha, Cheri, and Aspear Berries.

The table below details the Pokéblocks that will be produced if the player adds a given Berry when blending with a given number of NPCs or the Blend Master. The level columns give the level that will be produced if the Berry Blender reaches a maximum RPM of 100 during blending. Since the NPCs only use the first five Berries, which each have a smoothness of 25, calculating the feel of any Pokéblock is simple, following the formula given in the previous section. Berry Blender meanwhile uses a Berry with smoothness of 50 or 70.

Trivia

  • Pokéblock bears some similarity to the popular candy Pez. They are both small candies that are stored in a dispenser.
  • The way a Pokémon reacts when it will be given a Pokéblock depends on its Nature. For instance, a Hardy Pokémon will make three jumps growing in height each time, while a Careful Pokémon will make three small jumps, whereas a Docile Pokémon will make no movement at all.
