The Berry Master (Japanese: Generation III: きのみめいじん Berry Master, IV: きのみじいさん Grandpa Berry) is a character from the Pokémon games, first appearing in Generation II.

Every so often, I would have a massive clear out and vow to become neater, but it never worked.
When I met my husband, he was just as bad, so we bumbled along together in his flat.

I mean I am literally desperate because I absolutely despise housework.
It never used to be that much of an issue to be honest: when I was on my own, I lived in a succession of rented bedrooms, allowing each one to get messier than the last and ignoring my growing floordrobe, but I always knew where everything was and it didn’t matter because I was the only one involved.
In Pokémon Heart Gold and Soul Silver, due to the Berry trees becoming Apricorn trees, the man on Route 30 instead talks about Apricorns, so there is no Berry Master.
