Watering cans (Japanese: じょうろ watering can) are items that allow a user to water Berry plants in the Pokémon world. In the games they are always key items.

In the games

In the Pokémon Dream World

Watering Can

In the Pokémon Dream World, the player starts off with the Décor item Watering Can, which can be used to water Berry plants in people's gardens. While the Watering Can has its own category in the Plain Catalogue, there is only one type.

A Berry cannot be watered as soon as it is planted; it must dry out first before it can be watered. The player can water others' Berries up to 20 times per trip, as of the April 2011 Dream World update. Prior to this update, there was no limit. There is no limit on watering the player's own Berries.

In the anime

James used a SquirtBottle on a wild Sudowoodo in Type Casting. Another SquirtBottle appeared in Johto Photo Finish where Mimey was watering the plants in the Ketchum residence. A SquirtBottle belonging to Miranda appeared in The Princess and the Togepi, and was used to water her garden. Unlike in its in-game sprites, SquirtBottles have legs in the anime.

A Wailmer Pail appeared in The Lotad Lowdown used by Rita to water her Berries in the Flower Shop.

A Sprayduck was briefly seen in Oh Do You Know The Poffin Plan, where it was used by Forsythia and her Roserade to water the plants around her house. It made a brief cameo along with Forsythia in Unlocking the Red Chain of Events!.

A Sprinklotad was briefly seen in Under the Pledging Tree!, where it was one of the items offered to Ash by a market vendor in Coumarine City after Ash had wondered out loud what presents he should buy for an upcoming festival.

In the manga

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Courtney was shown using a Wailmer Pail in It All Ends Now VIII.

Platinum used a Sprayduck in Honey for Combee.

In the Pokémon Gold and Silver: The Golden Boys manga

Whitney's Cleffa was shown using a SquirtBottle.


  • The Sprinklotad is the only watering can whose design is not based on a pure Water-type Pokémon; Lotad is a Water/Grass-type Pokémon.
  • The Wailmer Pail is the only watering can whose design is based on a Pokémon that was also introduced in the same generation as the watering can.
