Spicy Sausage Curry in Pokémon Sword and Shield

Curry on rice (Japanese: カレーライス curry rice), or simply curry, is a food item consisting of curry and rice popular in the Galar region. It has also appeared many times in other regions in the anime and manga.

In the games


In Pokémon Sword and Shield, curries can be prepared in the player's Pokémon Camp, which can be accessed from the menu. Curry can be cooked by up to four players in a mini-game, similarly to Pokéblocks and Poffins in the Generation III and IV games. As with the latter, cooking curry consists of three stages: "Fan the Flames!", "Give It a Good Stirring!", and "Put Your Heart into It!", each of which has the player performing a different task.

Curry is mentioned in the original Japanese versions of the episodes The Punchy Pokémon, Dig Those Diglett!, The Bridge Bike Gang, Showdown at Dark City, The Problem with Paras, Lights, Camera, Quack-tion, and Second Time's the Charm! as well as the song Polka O Dolka; as with rice balls, these references were removed in the dub.
