    i started test playing healing berrry and noticed it is worded different then the other berries. other berries are worded that the effect happens in between turns, but healing states at the end of any turn. this is the same time that poison/burn happens. so, is healing berry allowed to go off before poison/burn is in effect and does its damage?

    i would think so since it is 1 less damge removal than gold berry and it requires 20hp or less. so that would be the advantage to healing over other berries is it gets around poison/burn even thou the disadvantage is one less healing and more strict requirements.

    Healing Berry`s effect goes off at the "end" of the turn,not "between" turns as Poison and Burn do so the Healing berry will go off and then the turn will end.

    As a side note,even if you had a Pokemon tool attached to your Pokemon that`s effect would go off "between turns",the rulebook states that you can use it "at any time between turns" which means you could choose to use it before poison or burn would go off.
