Galarica (Japanese: ガラナツ Galanut) is a species of tree that grows in certain areas of the Galar region. In the games, Galarica Twigs can be exchanged for items used to evolve Galarian Slowpoke, the Galarica Cuff and the Galarica Wreath.

Galarica seeds used to be the favorite food of Galarian Slowpoke, and are considered an essential spice in cooking. It is believed the seeds are responsible for Galarian Slowpoke's unique appearance and behavior. Occasionally, the Pokémon will get a very sharp look in its eyes, as if it is about to think of something tremendous, but then it will quickly forget and return to its normal expression. It is believed that this behavior, along with the spicy taste of its tail, is a result of Galarica particles built up over generations from its diet of native Galarica seeds affecting its brain and body.[1]

Galarica nuts in the anime

Galarica nuts appeared in An Evolution in Taste!. A Galarian Slowking leading a group of Galarian Slowpoke and Slowbro brought some of them to Slowpoke Island in order to make friends with the local Slowpoke and their evolutions. It also gave some Galarica seeds to Ash and Goh, who found them tasty, despite their spiciness. By the end of the episode, Galarian Slowking's Galarica curry was combined with Slowpoke Island's Slowking's udon to create a dish that both kinds of Slowpoke enjoyed, and a Galarica tree was planted on Slowpoke Island to commemorate their friendship.
