Added two new Berries.


What do these new berries do?

1 Answer 1


According to this article:

The Nanab Berry and Pinap Berry are the two new berry items in trainers’ arsenals. The Nanab Berry will slow Pokemon down so it’s less likely for them to run off, while Pinap Berries help players collect twice as much candy upon a successful catch.

It looks like the Nanab berry slows down pokemon to prevent them from escaping, and Pinap berry helps you to gain twice as much candy when you catch a pokemon.

  • I can see people abusing the Pinap berry during special events where they already get additional candies Feb 17, 2017 at 1:10
  • This isn't exactly what the help descriptions in the game say. Specifically, it says the nanab berry calms them so they don't move around as much, or something like that.

  • The Pinap Berry isn't twice as much - it's two extra candies. That is, you get 3 for a normal catch... but 5 if you catch the Pokemon on the throw immediately after using the Pinap.

    @TimmyJim this answer suggests the answer is no, you can only use 1 berry at a time.
