Pokémon GO Golden Razz Berry is a special variant of the commonly known Razz Berry. It can be used for two purposes: fully restoring a Gym Defender’s motivation meter and drastically increasing your chance to capture a wild Pokémon.
Golden Razz Berries drop in Raid Battles, along with Technical Machines and Rare Candy.
Golden Razz Berry Role and Usage
As you advance through Raid Battles, you will get the chance to obtain Golden Razz Berries, a special kind of berries that can fully heal your Defenders’ motivation meter.
However, Golden Razz Berries are one of the less important additions in this update, as you can achieve the same net effect by using other berries, but it takes more time and resources.
Golden Razz is comparable to Max Revive and Max Potion, as it performs the same task as other lower tiered Berries, but it does it more effectively.
