Just like Pokémon GO, you can give snacks to wild Pokémon in Let's Go to increase your ability to catch them. Just like Pokémon GO, there are only three Berries to start. Unlike Pokémon GO, some Berries are better than others. Here's how every berry works in Pokémon Let's Go!
A Razz Berry (named for the real-world raspberry) makes a Pokémon like you. It's like enticing the wild creature to trust you and let you catch it. In Pokémon Let's Go, the Pokémon increases your chance of catching a Pokémon. If a Pokémon's level is high, it may change the color of the catch ring (the identifier that tells you how difficult it will be to catch it) from red to yellow or yellow to green.
There are three different Razz Berry tiers; standard, silver, and gold. Silver and Gold Razz Berries give a bonus increase your chance of catching a Pokémon respectively.
A Nanab Berry (named for the real-world banana) calms a wild Pokémon down so it's less erratic. It's like giving a very mild, natural sedative to the wild creature so it doesn't run around like crazy. In Pokémon Let's Go, Nanab Berries will literally stop a Pokémon from moving, locking it in place. It also slows down the catch rings so you have a better chance to throw a "Great" catch.
There are three different Nanab Berry tiers; standard, silver, and gold. Silver and Gold Nanab Berries give a bonus increase your chance of catching a Pokémon respectively.
The Pinap Berry (named for the real-world pineapple) makes it more likely that the wild Pokémon you're trying to catch will give you an item, like a Pokéball or another Berry (or two). It's like offering a present to the wild creature in hopes that it'll return the favor with a gift.
