1..... Introduction
==============================================================================
Welcome to my Berry Guide for Pokemon Diamond and Pearl. This guide shows the
entire list of berries, plus a small little bit on poffins. This guide will
show you the berry's description and what it does. There are (I believe) 
a total of 64 berries in the Sinnoh region, and all can be obtained in some 
way.  Anyways, on to the guide!

==============================================================================
2..... Berries? What do they do? How do I get them?
==============================================================================
Berries are items that pokemon can use. All berries can be held and some have 
an effect in battle. An oran berry, for example, will heal 10HP in battle when
the pokemon's health enters the yellow zone. A Cheri berry will cure paralysis,
in or outside of battle. Some berries have special effects. A Pomeg berry
will decease your pokemons HP EV's (effort values) and a Occa berry will 
decrease  fire attack damage. Some berries are only used for poffin 
ingredients. Berries are only a 1 time use (unless you are in the Battle 
tower) so be careful!

Berries are avaliable ingame when you reach Floaroma town. Berries are found
in dark patches of soil. You can pick them, and if you water the berry lots, 
you can get tons of berries! Some people, like the berry master on route
208, will give you berries every day!

New to this gen is fertilizer. Putting fertilizer on the soil before planting
your berries will enhance growth. Growth mulch, for example, will make the
berry grow faster, but will make the soil dry faster. Use your Sprayduck to 
water berries. The more you water them, the better chance you get to have more
berries!

A berry finder app. for your poketch will help you find where you planted your 
berries! To get it, go to the berry masters house on route 208 and talk to the
little girl in there. Answer yes to her question to the the the berry finder 
app.!

Berries take some time to grow however. Berries start out as seeds, then
sprouts, then blooming then ready. Different berries take longer to grow.
Some only take 2 hours, others take a full 4 days before they are ready.

Happy planting!

==============================================================================
3..... How do I make Poffins?
==============================================================================
Poffins can be fed to pokemon to enhance their stats in a contest. Once you
get to Hearthome city and get a poffin case, you can make up to 100 poffins.
Go to the poffin house (just south of the PKMN center) and ask the lady
by the fondueish thing to make poffins. You can do it alone or with friends,
and supposedly if you make it with other people your poffins will turn out 
better.

While making Poffins, you will need to stir the batter either clockwise or
counter-clockwise (an arrow will show which way to stir) going to fast will
make the batter overflow, and going to slow will burn it. The batter gets 
thicker and harder to stir after a while, so be prepared! Once you have 
stirred it enough, you will be done, and your results will be posted. The
faster you made it and the less you overflowed and burnt it, the better your
poffin will be!

Depending on the berrys flavor, you may get different kinds of poffins.
A rawst berry will result in a bitter poffin.
Sometimes you might get a mix of flavors, like a Pamtre berry will net
you a dry-sweet poffin. If you overflowed it and burnt the poffin too much,
the result will be a foul poffin, which won't do much.

The higher the level and smoothness, the better the poffin. Remember this.

5..... FAQ
==============================================================================
Q: Berries? 
A: They have been around since the 2nd gen (Silver, Gold, Crystal). They
help enhance your pokemon during battles. Some berrys restore HP or
boost stats in a pinch.

Q: Poffins? How do I make them? Where can I make them?
A: Poffins are the new PokeBlocks. You stir the berry batter with the touch 
screen. The faster you stir, the better your poffin will be. You can make
poffins once you reach Hearthome city.

Q: How do I make a Pokemon hold a berry?
A: Go to items and go to the berry pocket. Choose a berry, and select "give".
Choose a pokemon to hold the berry. Done. Juts make sure the berry has an
effect as poffin berries do nothing in battle ; )

Q: Berries are useless. They suck.
A: Many competitive battlers will probably disagree with you. 

Q: Can you give me a berry?
A: Go away.

Q: How do I get (Berry)?
A: Berries can be found all over Sinnoh. You can also import them from your
GBA games. I believe the only berries unobtainable at the moment are berries
# 60-64, which will be given out at Nintendo events. If you have an AR
(Action replay) then they are obtainable. In fact, all berrys are obtainable
with an AR. :D

Q: What is your favorite berry?
A: I, personally, like the Salac berry. It raises speed and it has a cool 
name =)

If you have a question, you can e-mail me at the following address:
Waterfox0@gmail.com

Do not send me e-mails asking to rate teams, help with defeating the E4 etc.
Questions about berries and poffins, maybe contests are fine. Anything 
else including spam will be deleted.
