Berry Master

This article is about an in-game character. For the TV program, see Jubilife TV.

The Berry Master's House in Generation III

The Berry Master (Japanese: Generation III: きのみめいじん Berry Master, IV: きのみじいさん Grandpa Berry) is a character from the Pokémon games, first appearing in Generation II. The Berry Master seems to be an expert in growing and caring for Berries, and he distributes them as gifts.


In Generation II, the Berry Master is located on Route 30, in a small house with a Berry tree growing next to it. The Berry Master of Generation II only gives the player one plain Berry; however, he also explains how Berries work.

In the Generation II remakes, there is no Berry Master, as there are no soft soil patches in Kanto or Johto. However, shards can be traded for Berries in Violet City and Fuchsia City.


The Berry Master and his wife in Generation III

In Generation III, the Berry Master is located on Route 123, living in a house with a large garden with twelve spaces for Berries nearby, split into six patches of two spaces each; the most of any one location in the game. Every day, the Berry Master of Generation III gives players two Berries. These are randomly selected from the twenty-first through thirtieth Berries obtainable in Hoenn (Pomeg Berry to Nomel Berry).

In the Generation VI remakes, the Berry Master and his wife retain their house on Route 123, next to a new garden. The area has been expanded to a wide circular area surrounding a fenced flower garden. This new location features double the available soil space from the original, with twenty-four berry spaces for berries, split into four patches of six spaces each.

There is also a man present in the Berry Master's house in these remakes, who will give the player a Gracidea upon being presented with a Shaymin in the player's party.

Berry Master's wife

The Berry Master in Generation III and its remakes has a wife that lives with him and helps grow and give out Berries. She will give a Berry each day to the player if he or she tells a two-word phrase.

Using five specific phrases, the player can receive five special Berries not otherwise obtainable outside of the Battle Frontier, events in Pokémon Colosseum and Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness, or Pickup in FireRed and LeafGreen. Three of these, however, may be given out by the Quiz Lady in the Lilycove Pokémon Center in Pokémon Emerald if the player correctly answers her question. It should be noted that saying these phrases will provide the special Berry only once. In Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, the Berry Master's wife gives on half of the phrase, replacing the other word with "something", wondering what it is. To get the special Berry, the player must enter the other word of the phrase. This entry method is case sensitive however, and requires that the player enters the word in all capital letters.

Phrase Sprite Number Name
Great Battle Bag Spelon Berry Sprite.png #31 Spelon Berry
Challenge Contest Bag Pamtre Berry Sprite.png #32 Pamtre Berry
Overwhelming Latias Bag Watmel Berry Sprite.png #33 Watmel Berry
Cool Latios Bag Durin Berry Sprite.png #34 Durin Berry
Super Hustle Bag Belue Berry Sprite.png #35 Belue Berry

Any phrase other than the ones above, as well as any repeated phrases, will instead yield a random Berry from among the first ten (Cheri Berry to Sitrus Berry).

The Berry Master's wife also mentions four grandchildren. Although nothing is stated, the following people who give out Berries daily could possibly be the grandchildren: a Beauty (an Aroma Lady in the remakes) along Route 120, a male Pokémon Breeder (changed to a Rich Boy) standing outside of Lanette's house along Route 114, a woman just north of the Route 111 rest stop, a Gentleman in the upper right section of Lilycove City, and a girl named Kiri in Sootopolis City.

Interestingly, the woman located along Route 120 also specifically mentions that she'll get more berries from the Berry Master.

In Generation IV, the Berry Master lives on Route 208. The Berry Master, his wife, and a young girl live together in a small house. Their garden is smaller than the one in Generation III, only having four patches of soil. Unlike Generation III, the Berry Master only gives out one Berry daily, randomly selected from the first through thirtieth Berries (Cheri Berry to Nomel Berry).

Berry Master's wife

The Berry Master's wife is a shy woman that sells Mulch. She stutters a lot in her speech, but does know a lot about Mulch. She makes the Mulch herself and sells it to people. There are four types of mulch that she sells:

Growth Mulch Growth Mulch
Pokémon Dollar200
Damp Mulch Damp Mulch
Pokémon Dollar200
Stable Mulch Stable Mulch
Pokémon Dollar200
Gooey Mulch Gooey Mulch
