Pojo's Pokemon Card of the Day


Thanks to Birgir for the 
Card Scan Today

Name: Berry - Neo

Pojo's Average Rating -
Standard: 2.00 (based on 6 reviews)
Modified: 2.33

Reviewed February 12, 2002

Ratings are based on a 1 to 5 scale
1 being the worst.  3 ... average.  
5 is the highest rating.


Berry is...well...Bad. I mean, the only things that can really use it are things with under 40-50 HP...and they'll probably get knocked out in one hit anyway. Focus Band, despite the flip, is better for protecting low-HP stuff.

In standard, it's slightly better than Potion. That's the good part. I give it a 1.5/5 in standard.

In modified, I really don't see any good use for it either. Maybe to soak up self damage from Granbulls... 1.5/5 in Modified too.

Well what can you say its Berry?

Its about the same as potion.
Its good on low hit point Pokemon Babys, Mr Mime, Erika's Dratini, Neo 3 Shuckle.
I would prefer a healing fields to it anyday.

I give it a 1.5/5. Its mainly useless in most decks.

I give it the same 1.5/5. Its not much better here.


Pok-e-mon been Berry, Berry good to me.

*sigh* Probably on Pojo is going to get that...

Anyway, Berry is not a card to build a deck around. It's not a card that you are going to jump up and yell about because you drew one in a pack of Genesis. What it is, is a basic utility card that can fit in any deck and help in any deck.

In Standard, it must compete with the likes of Scoop Up, Potion, and Switch for your deck spaces.

In Modified, if you have low HP Pokemon, there ain't much else to choose from. Berry gives you an extra turn to make use of or evolve your Pokemon, and often that is exactly what you need.

In Draft, any Trainer is high on the desirability list and this one is no exception, especially since One Hit KOs are virtually non-existant in Draft.

Standard: 3/5
Modified: 3.5/5
Draft: 3.75/5


Standard: Not much use for it with Gold Berrys being in every deck. But it can be used to cure basics under 40 H.P. If you DO play this card, the only reason is because you max out in Gold Berrys. (Rating:1.5)

Modified: In modified, not much change. Should only be used to cure itty-bitty babies. J (Rating:1.5)


Sometimes I wonder why Wizards of the Coast does such strange things... and this is definitely one of them. It actually is underrated; its very good in baby decks, and decks with low hp basics (murkrow). Its more a waste of space then not though.

Standard - 2/5
Modified - 3/5


Berry is really nothing special. In Standard, it's overshadowed by it's big brother Gold Berry, so there's not much to say about it. It can, however, couple rather nicely with Mr. Mime's "Invisible Wall," but that's about the only time you'll want to use it over Gold Berry solely because of Gold Berry's -40 to Berry's -20.

In Modified, the same deal applies. Although both Berries are overshadowed by another live saving Trainer(Focus Band), if you ever thought about using either Berry, you'd be better suited to use Gold Berry. 

In draft, however, it has its uses. The abundance of this Neo: Genesis common is a plus, and healing 20 damage is a lot better in a format that forces the player to use the overshadowed-and thus generally weaker-cards.

All in all, Berry isn't very useful. Go for the Gold, folks.

Standard: 2.5/5
Modified: 3/5
Draft: 3.75/5 is here to provide guidance to all Pokemon trainers out there.  Whether it's the Gameboy Game, N64 or the Trading Card Game, provides all the wisdom you desire.
