Debut Giratina and the Sky Warrior

Gracidea (Japanese: グラシデア Glacidia) is a vast area located in Sinnoh. It is near the top of a mountain. Shaymin, along with others of its species, lives here. If a Shaymin comes in contact with one of the flowers native to this place, it will immediately change Forme. In the English dub, the Gracidea garden was also referred to as the "flower garden."

In the anime

Aerial view of Gracidea

Gracidea was featured in Giratina and the Sky Warrior. It is located at the base of a glacier. Shaymin was in a rush to get there in time for "flower bearing," a ritual where many Shaymin gather, transform into Sky Forme, and fly away to start a new Gracidea garden in a faraway place. The place was threatened with destruction when Zero's actions in the Reverse World caused the glacier to start moving. A Regigigas, who inhabited a temple in the mountains near the garden, awoke just in time to help stop the impending disaster.

Several Shaymin in Gracidea


Trivia

  • Gracidea's name may come from the word "gratitude," because Shaymin is the Gratitude Pokémon. It might also come from a combination of the Latin words gracilis, modest, and dea, goddess.
  • Gracidea did not appear in Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum, but the Flower Paradise can be considered its counterpart, as it is covered in flowers and Shaymin can be found there. However, the Gracidea flower itself is not found there, instead being found in Floaroma Town.
