Appearances

Anime

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

Origin

The Shuca Berry is based on a cashew fruit, which it also gets its name from. Its ability to lessen damage from a Ground-type attack may be a play on words, as cashew nuts are often "ground" into foods such as sauces or pastes.
