    Does a pinch berry get consumed if you have max boosts in a stat (ie: Belly Drum + Liechi)?

    This matters because of Berserk in Gen 7 (also the ability to re-activate the Pinch berry after losing a stat level). If the berry exists someone could still steal it or it could be flung.

    No, it doesn't.

    +6 Pokemon doesn't eat the berry until it next comes in under the threshold for its activation, or it loses a speed boost when under the threshold.

    Tested with a Volcarona and a Salac Berry in ORAS.

    I doubt I'll be able to test it in Gen 3, due to how difficult it is to get pinch berries in Gen 3.

    I'll look into Gens 4 and 5 after I've slept, assuming no one else does it in the meantime.


    EDIT: I've been unable to test it in Gen 5 due to a lack of pinch berries, but I have tested it in Gen 4. It works exactly the same as it does in Gen 6. As such, I'd speculate that it works the same across all the Generations.
