Natures Berries

A Pokemons nature also determines the berries it likes and dislikes. Each type of berry is linked to one stat:
Attack Spicy
Defense Sour
Speed Sweet
Sp. Atk Dry
Sp. Def Bitter
The berry a Pokemon likes is the corresponding flavour of its raised stat, while the berry it dislikes is the flavour of its lowered stat.
For example, a Pokemon of Sassy nature will like Bitter berries (Special Defense is raised) and dislike Sweet berries (Speed is lowered).
