Can Harvest recover stolen berries if stealing moves* (Bug Bite, Thief, Covet, Fling, Natural Gift etc.) are used? If Harvest can recover stolen berries, then it's possible to duplicate things like Lansats and Starfs. --Enervation 02:10, 16 October 2011 (UTC)

I've been playing around with Harvest and Recycle in Generation V, and they can restore Flung and Naturally Gifted (whatever) items, but not Bug Bitten, Plucked, stolen, swapped, or Bestowed. You also can't restore items that have been collected by something with Pickup. So no, there doesn't seem to be any way to duplicate these rare Berries. --SnorlaxMonster 10:04, 3 November 2011 (UTC)


There's something that's bugging me about this. It says that it can't restore a Berry collected with Pickup. However, according to the article for Pickup, Berries can't be found with the Ability in Generations V and VI. In fact, they haven't been available since Generation III. So what's this about?

See Pickup (Ability)#Generation V. It's not talking about Pickup out-of-battle. Tiddlywinks (talk) 19:27, 27 February 2014 (UTC)
