A status condition healing item is a type of item from the Pokémon games. They can be used during or outside of a battle to heal a Pokémon's status condition. They can often be found on the ground, whether readily visible or hidden from sight and requiring an Itemfinder to locate, and can be bought at nearly every Poké Mart.

Paralyze Heal was mentioned in A Pokémon Scent-sation. Erika offered to give some of it to Ash's Bulbasaur after it had been hit by her Tangela's Stun Spore, but Ash declined the offer.

Old Gateau made an appearance in Get Your Rotom Running!. In this episode, Ash and his friends went to the Old Chateau to try some of the famous treat upon the recommendation of Professor Oak.

A Lava Cookie appeared in The Brockster Is In!. An elderly passenger gave it to Brock to help cure the poisoned Pokémon Normajean was taking care of.

Casteliacones were first mentioned in A Venipede Stampede!. While being in Castelia City, Iris accidentally lead the group to the stand selling the treat, where they found out that it was closed. The same stand was referred to again in Climbing the Tower of Success!, when Ash, his friends, and Stephan were trying to solve a quiz at the Wishing Bell Festival. Thankfully, Cilan remembered having eaten a Casteliacone in the past, allowing them to figure out the right answer.

Antidote was mentioned in An Undersea Place to Call Home!. Lindsey used one off-screen to cure Ash's Pikachu after it had been badly poisoned by a wild Skrelp's Toxic.

The following is a list of cards named Full Heal.

  • Old Gateau's name in both English and Japanese is a pun based on the location it is found. In English, the French word gateau ("cake") plays on Chateau. In Japanese, the Chateau's name is "Forest Manor" (Japanese: もりのようかん) while the Gateau's name is "Forest Yōkan" (Japanese: もりのヨウカン); the two terms are homophones and are pronounced as mori no yōkan.
  • According to the anime, the Old Gateau is also known as the Mirage Gateau.
  • In early appearances, the Antidote and Full Heal were depicted as a vaccine inside of a syringe-type device; this was later changed to being a "spray-type medicine" in Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen.
  • All "local specialty" items introduced since Generation III — the Lava Cookie, Old Gateau, Casteliacone, Lumiose Galette, and Shalour Sable — are variants of the Full Heal. The Rage Candy Bar, introduced in Generation II, is a variant of the Potion instead.
  • In Pokémon Adventures, Blue is healed with a Paralyze Heal, the first time a status condition healing item besides local specialties is used on a human.
  • In the games, "Old Gateau" is usually pluralized as "Old Gateaux". However, the description of the Souvenir Set in Join Avenue says "A set of two Old Gateaus. The cake heals all the status problems of one Pokémon."
