Is a Sitrus Berry or an Oran Berry better?

Oran Berry heals ten damage but Sitrus Berry can heal random damage so which one do you suggest?

Sitrus berry is normally better because it heals 25% of the user's max hp and the user's max hp is normally more than 40 so it will recover more.Oran berry is better for Little Cup though.

It depends, but in general, a sistrus berry is better. The main reason being that oran only restores a fixed 10 HP, which is generally quite awful on Pokemon with high HP. But Sistrus restores a percentage of HP. So it will always restore more on higher Hp Pokemon.

On low HP Pokemon however, sitrus may not be the right choice. If a Pokemon only has say 14 HP (in LC for example) then Sitrus is only going to restore 25% of that. Not a lot. But an Oran would restore way more.

hope I helped ^.^
