Most Pokemon GO players want them because their Pokemon usually need them, but the good news is that Pinup Berries aren’t too hard to come by.
When trainers reach level 18, a pineapple-shaped treat will be unlocked. Although they are used very differently in the main Pokemon series, in Pokemon GO they are given to wild Pokemon during catch encounters. If on the next throw a pokemon fed a Pinapberry is caught, the amount of CandyCoaches received from the catch will be doubled.
For many Pokemon that require large amounts of candy to evolve, such as Swablu or Magicarp, they are even more valuable.
How to get Pinap Berries in Pokemon GO
Since these aren’t available through the Pokemon GO in-game store itself, berries, including Pinaps, will need to be obtained through gameplay in various ways.

Some of these items will be limited, depending on the player’s level, and the Pinap Berries themselves are far from guaranteed at any point.
- Community Bucks / Daily / Limited Time: While Berries themselves aren’t available for purchase in the Pokemon GO Store, you can sometimes find them in boxes at the top of the menu. Most of these boxes will cost Pokecoin, but there are often special free promotional boxes available through Niantic. They won’t always carry Pinapa Berries, but players can often check to see if new boxes available require them.
- Completion Research work: Research can often be difficult, depending on what the task requires, but the many rewards offered to players can be well worth the effort. Berries are often sprinkled in as exploration rewards, along with XP bonuses, encounters with Pokémon, and other items. If players see a research award that is standard or…
