Watmel Berries in the anime

A Watmel Berry plant appeared in PK23. Snivy used a Watmel Berry from the plant to lead a Snorlax away from the hole which the Rinka Berry fell into, as it had rolled on top of the hole.

In the manga

A Watmel Berry in Pokémon Adventures

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

In Sneaky Like Shedinja II, a Watmel Berry was seen amongst the Berries that Emerald's Sceptile sliced with Leaf Blade for its Trainer to eat.

In Stunning Staravia & Stinky Skuntank I, a Watmel Berry was one of the Berries that fell out of Lax's fur when the Advanced level Grunt's Gible hit it with Dragon Rush. When the Grunt stepped down from the shelf he was standing on, he accidentally stepped on the Watmel Berry and slipped, causing him to drop Platinum's Pokédex he had tried to stel.

In Dramatic Drapion & Crafty Kricketune II, a Watmel Berry was one of the Berries that Lax flung at the two Scientists who were chasing the group, but the Scientists' Kricketune and Drapion sliced through every single Berry without effort.

Trivia

  • Its description claims that it can grow over 20 inches (50 cm), making it the largest Berry; however, ones the player obtains are only 9.8 inches (25 cm), behind several Berries such as the Kelpsy Berry—the largest Berry, at 15 inches (38.1 cm).
