A Leppa Berry, if held by a Pokémon, restores 10 PP to a move that drops to 0, or can be used as an item to restore 10 PP to any move.
If a Pokémon obtains a Leppa Berry when it already has one or more moves at 0 PP, the Berry will be consumed immediately, and if there are multiple moves with 0 PP, whichever one is earlier in its move order will be restored.
If a Pokémon is forced to eat a Leppa Berry as a result of Fling, Bug Bite, Pluck, Stuff Cheeks, or Teatime, PP will be restored to the earliest move that has 0 PP left if such a move exists, or otherwise to the earliest move that has any PP missing.
When used in conjunction with Natural Gift, a Leppa Berry will take on the Fighting-type with a power of 60.
At 100% performance, this Berry will contribute 60 units of powder.
At 100% performance, a Leppa Berry will produce at least a level 13 Spicy Poffin when cooking alone.
