Charizards Hideout

 
Picture
Berries (Japanese: きのみ Berry) are small, juicy, fleshy fruit. Many different kinds grow in the Pokémon world.
Berries were first introduced in
Pokémon Gold and Silver. The player could give their Pokémon items to hold that could affect battles. However, Pokémon cannot use items such as Potions to restore themselves in battle. The reasoning behind this is that they don't know how to operate human-made things.

Berries, on the other hand, can be used by Pokémon. A Pokémon will automatically use a Berry in battle once its status changes, or its
HP drops below a certain point - the activation of the Berry varies among them.

Generation II In the Generation II games, Berries were very limited in their availability, as they could be picked from trees only once daily, and a new one would not grow back until midnight of the next day. Their use was not much different, with all ten having in-battle effects. Apricorns were obtained in a similar manner, though their use is different; they are used to make special Poké Balls and have no in-battle effects.

A berry tree in Gold, Silver and Crystal Generation III In Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire, a greater number of new Berries were introduced, replacing the first ten Berries of Generation II in name, but with little to no difference in function. In addition to the battle-use Berries, some of the new ones introduced were stat enhancers, functioning similarly to Battle Items, such as X Attack. However, many had no further use beyond making Pokéblocks for contests. In much the same way many Pokémon resemble real world animals, these Berries also resembled real world fruit. So, in keeping with their real world counterparts, they were given unique attributes, as noted on their tags.

In addition, harvesting of Berries was also greatly changed in
Generation III. They no longer grew regularly in certain places - rather, picking a set of Berries uprooted the plant. Berries had to be replanted in loamy soil for them to grow, and only when watered once per stage can they grow the maximum possible number of Berries. Many species of Berry also were given varied growing times, ranging from four hours to four days.

Unlike in Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald, which are set in
Hoenn, Generation III games Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, Pokémon Colosseum, and Pokémon XD are set in Kanto for the former two and Orre for the latter two. Like in Generation I, Kanto has no loamy soil, meaning no Berries can be grown in-game. Just the same, FireRed and LeafGreen lack an in-game clock, which keeps track of planted Berries' growth. Orre lacks these as well, perhaps due to the fact that it would be too difficult to have programmed into the game with everything else. Thus, the only way to get Berries in these games is to find them, steal them from wild and opponents' Pokémon, or transfer them over from a Hoenn-based game held by a Pokémon being traded. The Pickup ability will allow a Pokémon to randomly find Berries, and Kin Island's Berry Forest is one of locations where Berries can be found randomly. In addition, in FireRed and LeafGreen, Berries can be found either via the Itemfinder or by pressing A on tiles where a green zig-zagged "shadow" appears in the grass. Not all of these tiles contain Berries, but many of them hide basic HP- and Status-recovery Berries such as the Oran and Chesto varieties. Interestingly enough, despite the rarities of some berries, all of them are still able to be sold for only 10.

Use out of battle Unlike in Generation II, many Generation III Berries were able to be used for things other than being held by a Pokémon for use in a pinch. Specifically, in Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald, players could blend their Berries together with NPCs or other players to make Pokéblocks to increase a Pokémon's condition. The resulting Pokéblock would depend on the flavors of the Berries that went into the blender.

Six of the Berries introduced in Ruby and Sapphire were given different effects in
Pokémon Emerald. Instead of being merely a Pokéblock ingredient, in Emerald the Pomeg, Kelpsy, Qualot, Hondew, Grepa, and Tamato Berries were able to lower effort values gained by a Pokémon in HP, Attack, Defense, Special Attack, Special Defense, and Speed, respectively, and raise its happiness.

Generation IV In Generation IV, the main set of Berries remained the same; however, several more were added, this time ones that would act like a reverse type-enhancing item, powering down an opponent's super effective move when it hit (effectively reducing damage by 50% for that hit). Several Berries' growth times also changed, most notably that of the Tamato Berry, which was to make it grow in the same amount of time as the other EV Berries instead of Berries of a similar flavor. Instead of blending Berries, they could now be cooked together to make Poffins. Berry trees are also able to yield more Berries than in Generation III, with a maximum of 15 Berries able to be harvested per tree.

In addition, many Berries could be traded for
Accessories, making it so that all of them have a use besides Poffin-making.

In
Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, Apricorns still have their role from Generation II and can be picked up in the field instead of berries. In addition, they can also be used to alter a Pokémon's stats, used in Pokéthlons. To collect the Berries in these versions, however, they can be obtained by locating the juggler by the Pokémon Center in Violet City, or the juggler just south of the Pal Park in Fuchsia City, and trading them a shard for berries. Each colored shard corresponds to a different set of berries; Red, Blue, Yellow and Green shards are sets A, B, C and D in Violet City, and sets E, F, G and H in Fuchsia City respectively. The colors of the berries received as part of each set either match or are similar to the color of the shard they are traded for.

A new item in HeartGold and SoulSilver called the
Berry Planter can be used to grow and reproduce berries while the player is traveling, instead of growing them in the field. However, similar to FireRed and LeafGreen, only a limited variety of berries can be found in the game, while the rest must be traded from either the Generation III games or the other Generation IV games.

Growing Berries Berries can be planted in designated soil patches scattered all over Hoenn and Sinnoh. These are the same patches that originally already had Berries growing in them. To grow Berries, one would need a berry to plant, a watering pot, and a vacant soil patch. A planted Berry will develop through three stages before producing berries: sprouting, growing taller, and flowering. A Berry can take between 12 and 96 hours to grow to a fully matured plant, depending on the Berry's rarity. A fully grown berry will produce anywhere from 1 to 15 berries, depending on the type of Berry and the frequency of watering. Most Berry plants typically produce 2-5 Berries. The frequency of watering can have a significant impact on the number of berries produced; the plant must be watered at least once per growth stage to keep the soil moist.

In
Generation IV, one can spread mulch prior to planting a Berry in order to speed up or slow down the growing process.

Formula Below is the formula describing how the game decides how much the berries should grow, given:



Growth Stages There are five individual stages to a berry's growth:

  1. One x berry was planted here.
  2. x has sprouted.
  3. This x plant is growing taller.
  4. These x flowers are blooming cutely/prettily/very beautifully.
  5. There are (number) x berries!

Some Berries that appeared in Generation III also had their growth times altered slightly.
