[[File:Dawn Swinub Berries.png|thumb|250px|A pile of Berries on a hollowed tree]]
In the {{pkmn|anime}}, while several ordinary fruits from the real world have and continue to be featured, Berries have appeared frequently as well, suggesting that the Berries are not the only fruit in the [[Pokémon world]]. There are also anime-exclusive Berries such as the [[Pinkan Berry]], which can change a Pokémon's coloration completely to pink when regularly consumed, and the [[Rinka Berry]], which is said to clear one's throat and restore the consumer's voice.
In ''[[AG102|Where's Armaldo?]]'' it was revealed that an isolated population of ancient Berry trees, with fossil evidence to suggest it was eaten by {{p|Anorith}} and {{p|Armaldo}} thousands of years ago, continue to fruit on [[Wales Island]].
Additionally, some Berries have been shown to grow on a Pokémon's body. In ''[[DP121|The Lonely Snover!]]'', a {{pkmn2|wild}} {{p|Snover}} gave {{Ash}}, {{an|Dawn}}, {{an|Brock}}, and their Pokémon some of the Berries growing around its belly. In the same episode, [[Ash's Grotle]] was shown to grow Berries on the trees on its back. Both of these Berries had no strange effects when consumed by [[human]]s or {{OBP|Pokémon|species}}.
Many [[Character of the day|characters of the day]] have been shown to plant and cultivate Berries, such as [[Natalie]], [[Forsythia]], and {{OBP|Lulu|DP137}}. These people are often assisted by {{t|Water}}- and {{type|Grass}} Pokémon. As seen in multiple episodes throughout the series, Pokémon living in the wild will often gather large amounts of Berries in their dens or hollowed trees. Fights sometimes break out over who owns the Berries, which usually necessitates intervention, as seen in ''[[XY035|The Forest Champion]]''.
In ''[[AG102|Where's Armaldo?]]'', it was revealed that Berry trees have existed since ancient times. A population of these ancient trees continue to grow on [[Wales Island]], bearing fossil evidence that suggest the Berries were eaten by {{p|Anorith}} and {{p|Armaldo}} thousands of years ago.
