Despite the sheer number of variations this move has, Natural Gift is almost completely worthless in a practical sense.

This is due to the fact that the user consumes its Berry when performing the move.

In the vast majority of cases, this means Natural Gift can only be used once per battle – with the exception being if the Pokémon also knows the move Recycle, which replaces a consumed item.

The problem with this combination is that not only would a second move slot be used up just to make the first move viable, but a turn would have to be wasted to recuperate the lost Berry.

Since even Natural Gift’s highest base power is still only 80 (it gets raised slightly in subsequent generations), this is hardly worth the investment.

If it were not for this glaring flaw, Natural Gift could have some impressive uses.

Depending on the Berry the user is holding, a Pokémon can use Natural Gift to perform a move of a type they might never be able to use otherwise. For example: Water-type Pokémon using a strong Fire-type move to unexpectedly burn up a Grass-type opponent.

Note: Beginning in the Generation V Pokémon games, the Ability Harvest was introduced. It’s strictly for a select few Grass-type Pokémon like Tropius and Exeggutor, but Harvest grants the Pokémon a 50% chance of replenishing its consumed Berry once per turn. This would make a move like Natural Gift much more useful.

Miscellaneous Information about Natural Gift:

  • If used in a Pokémon Contest, Natural Gift earns the user 2 Appeal Points, plus 2 bonus Appeal Points if the user was the last to act in that turn.
  • TM83 Natural Gift can be resold for 1000 PokéDollars.
