A Sitrus Berry (Japanese: オボンのみ Obon Fruit) is a type of Berry introduced in Generation III. It is the spiritual successor of the Gold Berry from Generation II, initially having an identical effect when used on or by a Pokémon. The effect of the Sitrus Berry was later changed in Generation IV so that it restores 25% of the user's max HP.
