Pokemon X and Y Berries and Berry Farming Guide


In Pokemon X and Y, Berries are naturally occurring fruits which a character can use both during the battle and outside the battle.

In order to get most out of these Berries, they should always be at Pokemon’s disposal. However, there are some Berries which can only be utilized while your character is NOT taking part in a battle. Berries once used will be gone for good.

Berry Farms

Berry Farm allows you to farm different Berries right adjacent to one another so as to improve the chances of obtaining a third kind of Berry.

After discovering a particular mutated Berry, an NPC will come to the farm and tell you about all the possible combination. We have discovered a few combinations which might come in handy.

  • Pecha Berry + Oran Berry = Qualot Berry
  • Iapapa Berry + Mago Berry = Pomeg Berry
  • Aspear Berry + Leppa Berry = Hondew
  • Chesto Berry + Persim Berry = Kelpsy

Berry Farm can be found at Route #7, East of Camphrier Town which allows you to place 36 Berry trees at a given time. While growing the Berries, there are some problems which might come up.

For instance, you will have to water your Berries to help them grow faster and prevent them from drying out completely. You Berries can also become a victim of Infestations which need to be removed so as to prevent any damage.

After you have taken good care of your Berries, they will get ripened in no time and you will be able to harvest them by simply walking over to them.

Bug-Type Pokemon

Along with Berries and Mutated Berries, you will also be able to find some Bug-Type Pokemon roaming the fields. Do let us know if you come across any Pokemon.

Following Pokemon has been spotted as of now:

  • Volbeat – Level 15 – Common – X/Y Version
  • Illumise – Level 15 – Common – X-Version
  • Ledyba – Level 15
  • Combee – Level 15 – Common – Y-version
  • Spewpa – Level 15 – Common – X/Y Version

Mulches

There are a total of three Mulches available from the Composter. All three of them have their very own distinctive functions/effects:

Boost: It decreases the time taken by Berry to get fully ripened. It is made by taking 2 of the same Berry type a 1 of another type to make.

Rich: It decreases any negative effects which can harm your Berries prior to full growth. It is created by taking 3 Berries, each one a different type to make.

Surprise: It increases the chances of a mutation to occur while your Berries are in growth phase. It is made by placing 3 of the same berries in the Composter.
