A Lum Berry (Japanese: ラムのみ Lum Fruit) is a type of Berry introduced in Generation III. It is the spiritual successor of the MiracleBerry from Generation II, having an identical effect when used on or by a Pokémon.
In the core series games
In the Generation V games, the Lum Berry can be sold to the gourmet maniac on Route 5 for 20.
If the holder is affected by any non-volatile status condition or confusion, it will consume its Lum Berry and cure its status condition. When forcibly consumed via Fling, Pluck, or Bug Bite, it also cures the consumer of its non-volatile status condition or confusion.
When used from the Bag on a Pokémon, it cures that Pokémon of its non-volatile status condition. This consumes the Lum Berry.
In Pokémon Legends: Arceus, it can be used to cure any status condition on a Pokémon, or thrown near wild Pokémon to draw their attention.
