    Pokémon Sword and Shield Berries, Berries, and more Berries!

    A common feature in Pokémon games, Berries serve many purposes and Pokémon Sword and Shield is no different. Within battle, your Pokémon can eat a Berry it is holding without costing you a turn for a healing item. Outside, they work like potions or status healing items. In Camping, you can use them to make Curry for your Pokémon. Whatever the use you have in mind, there are many, many different types of Berries! Keeping track of where to find them and how to use them can be a real challenge. Fortunately, we’ve got a cheat sheet for you!

    When cooking Curry in your Camp, you can choose up to ten Berries to add to the dish. Each Berry has a different flavor profile that adds up to determine the flavor of the Curry you will make. Berries also come in three different rarities; the rarer the Berry, the bigger the boost your Pokémon will get to its Friendship Level.
