Berries are small fruits that grow on berry trees. There is a large variety of berries including the basic Oran Berry and were introduced in Generation II as simple berries as the realistic ones such as the strawberry and the raspberry are in the Generation I game Hey You, Pikachu!. It takes 48 hours for a berry tree to grow to full size and bear berries. They can be held by Pokémon to reduce the damage of an Attack or Restore health. They also can be used to heal a Pokémons status problem in battle too. They are used to increase a Pokémon's charm through PokéBlocks and Poffins, which is used to gain attraction by voters in Pokémon Contests.
Berries are not sold in Poké Marts.
This formula shows how many berries one tree will bear:
- a= max number of berries
- b= min number of berries
- c= number of berries chosen at random between a and b
