A Nanab Berry (Japanese: ナナのみ Nana Fruit) is a type of Berry introduced in Generation III. In Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!, the Nanab Berry also has two variants: the Silver Nanab Berry and the Golden Nanab Berry.
In the core series games
In the Generation V games, the Nanab Berry can be sold to the gourmet maniac on Route 5 for 500.
In all core series games apart from Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee! and Pokémon Legends: Arceus, Nanab Berries cannot be used directly and only have a use as an ingredient, such as for Pokéblocks and Poffins.
In Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!, a Nanab Berry can be used from the Bag to reduce the chances of a wild Pokémon moving when catching. This consumes the Nanab Berry. If the wild Pokémon breaks out of a Poké Ball, the Berry's effect disappears. A wild Pokémon cannot eat a Berry while another Berry is still in effect.
In Pokémon Legends: Arceus, it restores the Pokémon's HP by 1/3 of its maximum HP. A wild Pokémon that consumes a Nanab Berry will move slower in the overworld.
In Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum, the player can exchange Nanab Berries for accessories at the Pick a Peck of Colors Flower Shop.

In spin-off games
The Nanab Berry was added to Pokémon GO on February 16, 2017. Prior to December 2, 2020, using a Nanab Berry on a wild Pokémon made it only 5% as likely to attack or dodge, making it easier to hit it with a Poké Ball. From December 2, 2020, onward, the Nanab Berry fully removes any possibility that the Pokémon might deflect or dodge the Poké Ball. The Berry's effect lasts until the Pokémon breaks out of a thrown ball.
When fed to a Gym defender, a Nanab Berry restores motivation 25% more than a Razz or Pinap Berry does.
Nanab Berries are obtainable starting at level 4. They are rewarded for leveling up every 4 levels, starting from level 23.
Nanab Berries can also be repeatably obtained from
- Spinning PokéStops or Gyms (Lv. 4+)
- Completing certain Field Research tasks
