Cheek Pouch (Japanese: ほおぶくろ Cheek Pouch) is an Ability introduced in Generation VI.
Cheek Pouch restores 33% of the Pokémon's maximum HP when it consumes a Berry, after the effect of the Berry is applied.
Cheek Pouch activates even if the Pokémon eats another Pokémon's held Berry via Bug Bite, Pluck or Fling, but only if the Berry is actually eaten for an effect (i.e. the Berry consumption animation plays). Consuming a Berry through other means (such as Natural Gift, using Fling, or its Trainer giving it a Berry from the Bag) will not trigger Cheek Pouch.
Cheek Pouch will not activate if the Pokémon is under the effect of Heal Block.
Outside of battle
It is unknown if Cheek Pouch has an effect outside of battle.
Along with the ability to recover HP from eating seeds or berries, an enemy Pokémon will also hold a Seed with it. If an enemy Pokémon is spawned on the floor with the Cheek Pouch ability, that enemy Pokémon will always be carrying a Seed with it, regardless of whenever or not there is any items available on the floor. Sometimes, it may hold a Tiny Reviver Seed or a Reviver Seed, if this is the case, the enemy Pokémon will use it upon fainting, turning it into a Plain Seed. The best way to obtain a Tiny Reviver Seed or Reviver Seed from a Pokémon with Cheek Pouch, is to use a move that will either drop its held item or take it away, such as Knock Off or Thief.
