|The Pokémon's HP is restored when it eats any Berry, in addition to the Berry's usual effect.
Cheek Pouch (Japanese: ほおぶくろ Cheek Pouch) is an Ability introduced in Generation VI.
Cheek Pouch restores 33% of the Pokémon's maximum HP when it consumes a Berry, after the effect of the Berry is applied.
Cheek Pouch activates even if the Pokémon eats another Pokémon's held Berry via Bug Bite, Pluck, or Fling, but only if the Berry is actually eaten for an effect (i.e. the Berry consumption animation plays). Consuming a Berry through other means (such as Natural Gift, using Fling, or its Trainer giving it a Berry from the Bag) will not trigger Cheek Pouch.
Cheek Pouch will not activate if the Pokémon is under the effect of Heal Block.
Outside of battle
It is unknown if Cheek Pouch has an effect outside of battle.
Pokémon with Cheek Pouch
In other games
When a Pokémon with this Ability eats a food item, Berry, Seed or health drink, the Pokémon will recover 25 HP. An enemy Pokémon with this Ability will spawn holding a Seed, regardless of whenever or not there are any items available on the floor. Sometimes, it may hold a Tiny Reviver Seed or a Reviver Seed, in which case, the enemy Pokémon will use it upon fainting, turning it into a Plain Seed.
In Pokémon UNITE, Cheek Pouch is Greedent's Ability. When the user eats a Berry, they recover HP after receiving the effects of the Berry. At the same time, the user stashes an Oran Berry in its tail. Being hit by a single attack or combination of attacks will cause an Oran Berry to drop from the user's tail. Berries stay on the ground for 10s.
||When the Pokémon eats or drinks an item, some HP will be restored, too!
