A Melody Berry (Japanese: メロディベリー Melody Berry) is a type of Berry that has only appeared in the anime, specifically in the Pikachu short Meloetta's Moonlight Serenade. They grow on a type of tree known as a Melody Tree (Japanese: メロディツリー Melody Tree).
Melody Berries have the ability to produce music, and they glow when Meloetta sings near them.
In the anime
In Meloetta's Moonlight Serenade, Meloetta set up a stage to perform a concert for several of its Pokémon friends. After performing a small dance, it created a Melody Tree, which soon produced five Melody Berries. After they grew to full size, the Berries fell off the Melody Tree while it grew to an incredible height and glowed brightly.
Meowth, having fallen in love with Meloetta, accidentally caused Crustle to cause a Sandstorm. The tornado of sand carried the Melody Berries away and sent them flying into different directions. Feeling bad for Meloetta, Pikachu, Snivy, Oshawott, Emolga, and Pansage went to look for the missing Berries. Meowth, only wanting to impress Meloetta, took Wobbuffet with him to get the Berries before Pikachu and the others do.
The first Berry, a pink one, was caught by Meloetta after it and others were sent flying away. The second, a purple one, was found in the branches of a tall tree. With the help of a wild Totodile and Bulbasaur, Pikachu managed to find and retrieve it. The third, a blue Berry, was found by a wild Togepi, who decided to play with it until it accidentally dropped it off a hole-covered cliff. After chasing the Berry down the cliff, Snivy and Emolga managed to retrieve it with the help of a wild Chikorita and Torchic.
The fourth Berry, a yellow one, was found by a wild Corphish, who took it to the bottom of a lake. Oshawott, with the help of a wild Piplup and Squirtle, dove to the lake and battled the Corphish, who simply assumed they were playing. After Oshawott and Squirtle were defeated, Piplup defeated Corphish, knocking the Berry out of its pincers. The Berry landed near Meowth and Wobbuffet, who pick it up only to be blasted away by a wild Psyduck.
The final Berry, a red one, was found in the cloud of a wild Drifblim by Meowth. In an attempt to retrieve it, all of the Pokémon ended up latched onto Drifblim as it is blown away by a draft of wind. Pikachu managed to get the last Berry, only for it and the other Pokémon to fall off of Drifblim. Meloetta, using its Psychic powers, rescued its friends, who then returned the missing Berries to it. With all of the Berries back in its possession, Meloetta continued its concert.
