The Coba Berry is a Berry introduced in Generation IV.


In-Battle Effect

If the holder is hit by a supereffective Flying-type move, the Coba Berry is consumed and the damage taken is halved.

If Pluck is used on a Pokémon holding a Coba Berry with weakness to Flying-type moves, the Coba Berry is activated and consumed before the attacker steals the Berry.

In "The Guardian's Challenge!", a Coba Berry was included in the lunch Mallow made for her classmates' Pokémon.


The Coba Berry is based on a babaco, which it also gets its name from. Its name and color may also reference the pigment cobalt blue. Its ability to lessen damage from a Flying-type attack may be based on how babaco grow at high altitudes.
