Effect

Held item

If the holder is frozen, it will consume its Pumkin Berry and defrost them.

The player will not be permitted to enter the Pokémon Cable Club Trade Center if a Pokémon in their party is holding this Berry. A Pokémon holding this Berry cannot be traded to Pokémon Colosseum or Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness, nor can it be stored in Pokémon Box Ruby & Sapphire.

If held by a Pokémon transferred through Pal Park to the Generation IV games, it will become an Enigma Berry.

Bag item

When used from the Bag on a Pokémon, it cures that Pokémon of its freeze. This consumes the Pumkin Berry.
