Lum Berry in Pokémon Sleep

The Lum Berry is available in Pokémon Sleep as one of the Berries that can be gathered by helper Pokémon and fed to Snorlax.


Lum Berries raise Snorlax's Strength, doubling the effect if the Berry is Snorlax's favorite. The base amount of Strength raised by the Berry is determined by the level of the helper Pokémon that gathered it.


Games Description
Sleep This Berry's gradual process of storing nutrients beneficial to Pokémon health causes it to mature slowly.


Lum Berries can be gathered by Bug-type helper Pokémon in the player's team. Like all Berries in the game, gathered Lum Berries do not go into the player's inventory and instead are immediately eaten by Snorlax.
