View Full Version : Why are my berries disappearing?

So it seems that whenever I plant berries, when I go back, they're just not there. I checked on a patch today and two on one side were there and growing while the two on the other were gone, I mean what the crap?
I'm pretty sure that the berries grow back even if you don't pick them for awhile...
This is Emerald by the way.

I think there is a berry glitch...I don't know if that relates to this, but it might have something to do with it.

i thought with the berry glitch that the berry would stay in the ground and just not grow

I'm sure if it's about the amount of time or not, I've saved a little bit after I've planted some berries and when I play again they've all disappeared. :S
It's really annoying...

Yes... but I didn't think real time affected GBA games...

Well, the same kinda happenened to mine too. My Emerald (wasn't Emerald supposed to have been fixed?) is infected with the Berry Glitch. So when my berries dropped to the ground, and the glitch activated shortly after, they just never grew. Perhaps you're suffering from the same problem?

Okay, this is everything-

If you plant berries, they grow. If you don't pick them, they turn back into little sprouts (I've seen them sparkle and turn back into sprouts before!), but they don't grow continually. They disappear. Waste of berries.
The Berry Glitch is supposed to be only in Ruby and Sapphire. After you play with the games for a while, the Berry Glitch kicks in. That's when the internal clock stops working, so that berries don't grow, the tides in shoal cave doesn't rise and/or fall, the lady in Lilycove doesn't let you do the lottery, etc.

I dunno about the internal clock 'cause my game is less than a month old, and it is legit.

I posted something about this a long time ago, when I noticed the same thing. There are two Berry glitches to look out for. First is the notorious "clock-berry glitch", where the berries stop growing after a certain number of hours played, and this can be fixed by linking up to Fire Red/Leaf Green, or XD, or whatever.

The second one really isn't a glitch, but it's useful to know about. I coined it the "Brownian Berry Glitch", because I pioneered the questions, and in science you're allowed to name a discovery after yourself. ;)

And basically, what the above said is correct. If you do not pick berries for a while, they completely disappear. I did a few tests, and watering berries makes them last longer, but you must make sure you pick them as soon as possible. It happens in D/P too, and the berries that grow faster can disappear in as little as three days if you don't touch them. Some can be faster, but like I said, in my tests I noticed that berries you water last longer than berries you don't water. But you still should pick them as soon as possible, to avoid having them just die off.

Hope this helps a little bit!

It happened in my Ruby when I planted the berries that cures poisoned. Later, they were not there. I don't know if it's a glitch or something, but my game was new. I think it is the internal battery. Some games, the battery is recharged when you play, and if you don't play for a while the save file dissapears (especially old NES games). Maybe the berries data are stored somewhere and if you don't play/recharge the battery there is not enough power to keep them and then they disappear. Seems a little strange though, but I cannot think of any other reason.

Well there are a couple things here. When you don't get your berries on time, they go back to the dirt. The berries cycle like this. Planted, sprout, bush, blossom, fruit, then if not picked at fruit, they go right back to planted.

Your issue sounds like it could be your battery is dieing. Since the berries cycle on a time base, if your battery dies. Then your berries would also.

Hope that isn't the case though, as you would then need to fool some shop into buying it from you, and getting another one.

P.S. Also, if you have any siblings, you may wanna check with that possibility, my kid has picked my berries and then I went to play and bamm my berries were gone. So, outside interference is always a good possible. If so, just put the game one place, then your gameboy.

But the berries in my game vanished, too, and it was new. I have had the game a long time and played over 200 hours and real berry glitch hasn't occured yet, so I think it's a bug that's in all the R/S games. It happened to my friend's new Sapphire as well. It's like the berries are affected by another internal battery, but the cartridge does only have one.

Wow, that happened to me for a while until my friend borrowed my game for a bit!
