Pokémon GO

Artwork in Pokémon GO.

The Nanab Berry appears in Pokémon GO as one of the few Berries in the game. In this game, the Nanab Berry stops the wild Pokémon from dodging or deflecting a Poké Ball, and this effect wears off if the Pokémon breaks free during a capture attempt.


The Nanab Berry is based on the banana, which it also gets its name from. Its ability to make wild Pokémon move around less in games such as Pokémon GO and Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee! is due to bananas containing tryptophan, a chemical that the body converts into serotonin, which helps the body relax.
