A bouquet of Gracideas.

The Gracidea (Japanese: グラシデアの Gracidea Flower) is a key item used in Pokémon Platinum to change Shaymin between its Land and Sky Formes. The flower is native to Gracidea, hence its name. It can be received during the player's first or subsequent trips to Floaroma Town, although the player's party must contain a Shaymin caught with a Cherish Ball. This item cannot be used at night or when Shaymin is frozen. In some places people give bouquets of these flowers that resemble Shaymin, as seen on the right, to thank someone. This comes from Shaymin's species, Gratitude.

Gracideas in the anime

In the movie Giratina and the Sky Warrior, a character named Layla owns a Gracidea bouquet, which has the same purpose as it does in Platinum. Shaymin also live in a field full of these flowers.

Trivia

  • The flowers on a Shaymin's head resemble Gracideas.
  • The Gracidea appears as a toy in the game My Pokémon Ranch, after receiving the Platinum update. Like in Pokémon Platinum, it is used to change Shaymin between its Land and Sky Formes. It only appears if the player has the Gracidea on their Platinum card.
  • The name Gracidea is likely derived from "gratitude", as Shaymin is the Gratitude Pokémon.
