Region Sinnoh
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 anime

Aerial view of Gracidea

Gracidea was featured in Giratina and the Sky Warrior. 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 Gracidea garden featured in the movie was located at the base of a glacier, and was threatened with destruction when Zero's actions in the Reverse World caused it to start moving. A Regigigas, who inhabited a temple in the mountains of Gracidea, awoke just in time to help stop the impending disaster. In the English dub, the Gracidea garden was also referred to as the "flower garden."

In the games

Main article: Flower Paradise
Several Shaymin in Gracidea

Gracidea did not appear in Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum, but its equivalent is the Flower Paradise, as Shaymin can be found there in the games and there are plenty of flowers, just like Gracidea. In Pokémon Platinum, the Gracidea is given to the player by a lady in Floaroma Town. The player can only obtain it if they have a fateful encounter Shaymin in their team. The item is used to change Shaymin between its Land and Sky Formes.

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.
