Pokémon GO players were intrigued by a fan's berry garden feature concept, with some calling the idea “perfect” for the mobile game.

While the mobile spin-off title Pokémon Go has adapted many of the features present in the main series of games, there are still many that have not reached phones.

One of these features is the concept of planting, nurturing and growing berries through the use of bushes. While berries are a valuable resource in Pokémon GO, players cannot grow their own.

Now, a Pokemon Go player created an intense concept for the Berry Garden mechanic, and fans are left in awe of the hypothetical mechanic.

The concept came from a user named gameheroes on TheSilphRoad subreddit, who made a post titled “Pokémon GO Concept: Berry Garden and New Bag Management.”

The post included twelve images that laid the foundation of the concept and explained how it would work in the mobile game.

According to the OP, Berry Gardens will function essentially the same as gyms, spanning across the entire map, and open to all players.

Players will contribute berries of a certain type to specific bushes to grow more powerful versions of that berry and will even host Water-type Pokémon in the Garden to help the bushes grow faster. .

Fans in the comments liked the idea and expressed interest in having more POIs on the in-game map. “I really want something new on the map. It's complete.”

Some fans pointed out that a similar concept was actually in Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, also developed by Niantic. “They had this mechanic in Wizards Unite. Seed/water/harvest other players,” one fan said. “It worked well there…so they sure really know how to do it.”

OP also outlined ways to streamline bag storage, introduce new berries, and more. Depending on community reception, the development team may want to take some notes.
