Where to Find Berries (Locations)

Obtain as a reward from Max Raid Battles

Ditto Stats

Berries with battle effects, as well as ones used for training are most common

You can often get Berries when you complete a Max Raid Battle. The berries you obtain here will be ones that are useful in battle such as Sitrus Berries, as well as ones that are useful when training your Pokemon such as Qualot Berry.

How to Train Pokemon Like a Pro

Obtain by shaking trees in the Wild Area

Stop shaking when the time the tree shakes for gets short

You can also find berries by shaking trees found in the Wild Area. The more you shake it, the more berries you can obtain, but when the amount of time the tree shakes for shortens, a Pokemon is highly likely to fall down and engage you in battle. When this happens, many of the berries will be stolen, so be careful not to shake the tree too much.

When to stop shaking

Keep shaking A Pokemon will fall soon
(Stop!)
Shaking Tree Fast Shaking Tree

Purchase from the Berry Shop

Berry Shop

Berries can also be purchased from the Berry Shop in Wedgehurst. However, the only berries you can buy here are Oran Berries, Cheri Berries, and Pecha Berries, so it is not extremely useful.

How to Get Berries Quickly

We recommend rushing through Max Raid Battles

The quickest way to stock up on berries is to repeatedly complete Max Raid Battles. Since Max Raid Battles are such an effective method for selectively catching Pokemon with high IVs and collecting Exp. Candy and TMs, it is one very important aspect to raising up the best Pokemon team, so earning some berries along the way is a nice side effect.

Shake trees in between Max Raid Battles

While travelling from Den to Den, shaking trees along the way will assist you in collecting berries most quickly. While it is still unconfirmed, it seems like berries return after about a day, so be sure and recheck the berry supply after a day has passed.
