The Sitrus Berry is a Berry introduced in Generation III. It is the successor of the Gold Berry from Generation II.


In-Battle Effect

If the holder's HP reaches ½, the Sitrus Berry is consumed, and the Pokémon's health is increased by ¼ of its maximum HP. It can also be used as a Bag item, which does the same effect to the selected Pokémon.

If flung, the target's health is increased by ¼ of its maximum HP.

Before Generation IV, it restores the Pokémon's HP by 30 points.

Sitrus Berry MD.png

The Sitrus Berry also appears as an item in the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series.

In Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team, Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness and Explorers of Sky, a Sitrus Berry eaten by a Pokémon or used as an item can restore the consumer's HP by 100. If the Pokémon has full HP, this item will boost the Pokémon's maximum HP by 2. It also fills the consumer's belly by 5.

In Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity, due to the removal of tbe belly mechanic in most dungeons, its effect in filling the belly is removed.

In Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon, it restores the consumer's HP by 200. Eating it at full HP permanently raises its max HP by 5. It has a similar effect in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX.


The Sitrus Berry is based on a citron, while its name comes from "citrus", the genus of trees that grow citrus fruits, including citron. Its close family relationship with the Oran Berry comes from that citron and orange (which the Oran Berry is based on) have the same genus.
