Fifth Generation Are Pokémon slaves to humans? Team Plasma thinks so. Travel the Unova region and prove them wrong in Black & White, and then return two years later in Black2 & White2.

In the earlier games, there were apricorns such as white, pink... and berries such as psncureberry and przcureberry. Then, in Gen 3 we got introduced to more advanced berries with different uses such as Pecha and Oran. In Gen 4 we had to plant the berries in pots within our bags rather than actually planting them around the region. This brings us to the question of berries in Gen 5.

Do you think the berries in these games will be spread around the region once more? Did that make it more enjoyable for you? Do you think new types of berries will be introduced to have more variety in B/W? Do you think the apricorn system will make a comeback in this generation? What if there's no berries? Though that would be quite unlikely.

But yeah, share your views on how berries will play a role in B/W.

I think we will have the same old berries from gen3, becuase there really isnt any way to improve them, i think. I hope that you can plant berrys throught the reigon though.

Berries shall return, and hopefully contests will return. But not the crappy contests of Sinnoh, something more along the lines of the Pokeathlon but different.

I think they will be the same as Gen II/IV but just a few more added.

Maybe we would have a garden where we can plant all the berries it can hold. And maybe, since their going all out with the graphics and stuff, we can see the berries IN 3D and see if it's bruised or brown or anything. o3o

I would like the garden idea. There could be a garden in every town or something, and each garden can hold up to like 10 berry plants. With the contests, I didn't like the Pokeathalon, and was not a fan of Sinnoh's at all. I say let's go back to the Hoenn contests!

Berries are to pokemon like peanut butter is to jelly..We will definitely see them coming back in black & white. I really liked the berry pots in HGSS, partially due to me not having to travel around the whole region to plant berries and or forgetting what ones I planted, so they should definitely be brought back. Though I feel as if berry pots were only used because Johto originally never had berries, so in black & white we may be back to planting them around the region.

I don't know what it is about berries, but I love them for some reason. It might just be my inner OCD need to have every single one and to collect them, but I'd love if they had them in B&W. I don't know what they would include, though, since it seems like they cover most of the bases already. Maybe some cheaper alternative to vitamins? You could create poffins that give 5 EVs each or something.
I'd also like if they brought in something new, like...potatoes, or some other kind of produce. You know, just to be a little different.

I like the "berries spread around the world" better than just keeping them in a case like in HGSS. I hope they can expand the wonders of berries. Like crushing certain berries to make some hyper potions or even rare candies. Now that I would like to see.

Like the majority have already said, Berries are likely to make a return. As for improvement? There really isn't much to improve on. We have berries used for mixing which serve no purpose outside of that, we have berries great for battle and status fixture, and with that we have berries perfect for reducing misused or unwanted EVs. I can only see a few more berries added to the variety beyond this, and possibly a few new purposes for them.

As for where they might go, I'm probably leaning to them being spread amongst the region again, but I'd prefer them in a Berry Pot like those in HG/SS. I liked this concept because I didn't have to go traveling all over to find where I planted my pre-existing berries, and it's so much easier to focus on too. Though, if it goes back to being across the region, then I'll be alright with it. I've gotten used to it since playing through 3rd and 4th Gen so long now, I guess it making a return after the new deal in HG/SS won't hurt.

I think they should bring back the E-reader berries from Generation 3 and let you obtain them normally.

The region looks very advanced, so I don't know if they'll bring them back. Maybe the Berry Pot thing again. Or maybe they'll create a new idea instead of berries.

yea i know. but i do think that they should make up a new thing, since berrirs have been used for the first 4 generations.

Three, actually. They were introduced in the second generation. And they've become such a staple of the canons (even the anime and perhaps manga) that they aren't just going to disappear. They're very simple to use in the game.

I actually prefer having the berries grown in the Berry Pots key item. They were right there as I traveled around, so I could keep an eye on them better. All I had to do was open the item menu and there they were. Compared to spreading them throughout the region, though, I had to remember about them, use the Poketech app to make sure that they were still growing, and then fly around to check on them/harvest them. I lost a few berries from just plain forgetting about them. Besides, sometimes, I just don't have a Pokemon with Fly on my team.

Still wouldn't be bothered if the Berry Pots were gone and we could only grow across the region.

As for new berries, there really aren't any I can see them including. As Hiiro said, we already have berries for all sorts of purposes.

My opinions are mixed. In HeartGold & SoulSilver, it was easy to grow berries because they are always with you in the berry pot. However, I sometime missed planting the many berries that I always used to.

Perhaps in Gen. V, things could be reversed. Instead of growing berries in a berry pot, one would grow apricorns. :)

I really hope they bring berry growing back. I liked being able to get a lot of good held items very easily.

Berries never really did play an important factor to me whenever I played Pokemon except for the fact that some of them really helped me a lot when it comes to battling and EV training. Other than that, if they introduce new berries, that's good. But whether they do or don't, it won't really impact me whatsoever.
