I like feeding Pokemon with berries on gyms. However, it is not always allowed to feed them.

I already know that you cant feed more than 10 in a certain period of time. I also know that you can't keep feeding the same Pokemon over and over again. what are the limits for feeding berries to Pokemon in gyms?

    Doesn't my answer to this question answer this question? – Vemonus Feb 23 '18 at 20:07
  • @Vemonus Not completely: It's not just that; I think there is some inter-player interaction that affects it as well – VortexYT Feb 23 '18 at 21:02
  • what makes you think that though? Everything is pretty much explained in this thread... – Vemonus Feb 23 '18 at 21:02
  • @Vemonus You didn't really cover the second part (probably because when you answered it wasn't known), so I answered separately here - but the Silph Road thread certainly covers it. – Joe Feb 23 '18 at 21:31

    @Joe yeah I see your point, they're just really similar and it's a little weird to have two questions that are answerable by the same passages from the same link... – Vemonus Feb 23 '18 at 21:46

The limits, for one trainer:

  • 10 berries per Pokémon per half hour, fixed window (so it resets after 30 minutes after the first Pokémon was fed)
  • Any number of Berries to ten unique Pokémon per half hour, rolling window (so each time it's been 30 minutes since you fed a Pokémon, a new one is eligible)

As you feed a Pokémon, each successive berry after the first restores less health; this is reset after thirty minutes as well (with the fixed window).

There are no known limits per Pokémon for multiple trainers: I have seen spoofed gyms being defended prior to legendary or EX raids where clearly dozens of bot-trainers are feeding berries to the same Blissey.

See this answer by Vemonus and the similarly linked Silph Road thread for more details.
