Generation VIII
Ripens Berries and doubles their effect.

Ripen (Japanese: じゅくせい Ripen) is an Ability introduced in Generation VIII. It is the signature Ability of Applin's evolutionary lines.


In battle

Ripen doubles the effects from held Berries when eaten in battle. This affects Berries that restore HP or PP (such as Figy Berry and Leppa Berry), Berries that reduce damage (such as Occa Berry), Berries that raise stats (such as Starf Berry), and Berries that deal damage to Pokémon attacking the holder (such as Rowap Berry). When a Pokémon with Ripen uses Leftovers or Berry Juice, Ripen displays a message but has no other effect.

Outside of battle

Ripen has no effect outside of battle.
