The Jaboca Berry is a Berry introduced in Generation IV.


In-Battle Effect

If the holder is hit by a physical attack, the Jaboca Berry is consumed and the attacker takes damage equal to ⅛ of its maximum HP.

If Pluck is used on a Pokémon holding a Jaboca Berry, the Berry is activated and consumed before the attacker steals the Berry.

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


The Jaboca Berry is based on a bunch of grapes while its name appears to come from the jaboticaba fruit. The jaboticaba is also known to grow in clusters around its tree's trunk.
