Trivia

  • Despite the relationship of this berry to the Bitter Berry from Generation II, both being the Berries that cured confusion, the Persim Berry is not actually bitter. In Generation IV and VIII, bitterness is actually the only flavor that the Persim Berry does not have.

Origin

The Persim Berry's design and name may be based on persimmons.
