A Pinap Berry (Japanese: パイルのみ Pairu Fruit) is a type of Berry introduced in Generation III. In Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!, the Pinap Berry also has two variants: the Silver Pinap Berry and the Golden Pinap Berry.
In the core series games
In the Generation V games, the Pinap Berry can be sold to the gourmet maniac on Route 5 for 500.
In all core series games apart from Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee! and Pokémon Legends: Arceus, Pinap Berries cannot be used directly and only have a use as an ingredient, such as for Pokéblocks and Poffins.
In Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!, a Pinap Berry can be used from the Bag on a wild Pokémon to increase the chances of getting more item rewards for catching Pokémon. This consumes the Pinap Berry. If the wild Pokémon breaks out of a Poké Ball, the Berry's effect disappears. A wild Pokémon cannot eat a Berry while another Berry is still in effect.
In Pokémon Legends: Arceus, it restores the Pokémon's HP by 1/3 of its maximum HP. A wild Pokémon that consumes a Pinap Berry will yield more Exp. Points when caught.
In Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum, the player can exchange Pinap Berries for accessories at the Pick a Peck of Colors Flower Shop.
In Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, the player can exchange:
- 40 Pinap Berries for Gorgeous Specs
In Pokémon Platinum, the player can exchange:

In spin-off games
The Pinap Berry was added to Pokémon GO on February 16, 2017. Using a Pinap Berry on a wild Pokémon will make it give twice as much Candy if it is caught. The Berry's effect lasts until the wild Pokémon breaks out of a thrown Poké Ball. Feeding a Pinap Berry to a Gym defender increases its motivation by the same amount as a Razz Berry does.
