Effect

In Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire, the Kelpsy Berry cannot be used directly and only has a use as an ingredient for Pokéblocks.

From Pokémon Emerald, the Kelpsy Berry can be used from the Bag on a Pokémon to increase the Pokémon's friendship (+10 at friendship 0-99, +5 at friendship 100-199, +1SwSh onward/+2Emerald-USUM at friendship 200-254) and lowers its Attack EVs by ten points (but not below 0). In Generation IV only, this Berry reduces the EV to 100 if it was above 110 when used.
