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, respectively. Cooking with other players will increase the amount of Experience Points earned.
Cooking curry consists of three stages: "Fan the Flames!", "Give It a Good Stirring!", and "Put Your Heart into It!"
On the player's birthday, a birthday candle will be placed in the player's portion of the curry.
Fan the Flames!
Using the A Button or by waving the Joy-Con up and down, the player can fan the fire. The fire will be too small if the player does not fan enough, but if they fan too much, the flame will get too big and burn the curry. Sparkles appear when the player is fanning correctly.
Give It a Good Stirring!
Using the Left or Right Control Stick or by waving the Joy-Con in a circle, the player can stir the pot. If the player stirs too slowly, it will burn, but if the player stirs too quickly, it will spill. Sparkles appear when the player is stirring correctly.
Put Your Heart into It!
Using the A Button or by waving the Joy-Con in a throwing motion, the player can throw a heart-ball into the curry. The curry will be better if this is timed so that the heart-ball lands in the circle when the yellow ring overlaps with the innermost green circle. If the player is cooking with three others, and all four manage to hit the inner green circle, a cutscene will play in which all four hearts combine into a larger heart, causing a geyser to erupt from the pot.
Curry uses two ingredients: Berries and a key ingredient.
Each player can contribute up to 10 Berries, but must contribute at least one. The amount of friendship and experience the curry provides depends on the rarity of the key Ingredient and Berries used, and how many Berries were used. Friendship gained is "half of the total berry rarity, rounded up to the nearest whole number", while experience gained is "6 x Ingredient Rarity + Total Berry Rarity". (This caps out at 50, with a multiplier applied based on the Pokémon's current level, and the Taste Rating.)
The player may also add a key ingredient, although this is optional. Key ingredients are exclusively used to make curry and can be collected in the Wild Area. They are stored in the Ingredients Pocket of the Bag. Only one key ingredient can be used per curry; when cooking with other players, the host chooses the key ingredient. The key ingredient determines the type of curry created.

Depending on the curry's taste rating, the curry will restore a Pokémon's HP, PP, or status conditions; give a Pokémon experience; and increase its sociability by different amounts. Cooking and eating curry will also restore a Pokémon's playfulness. The taste rating does not affect friendship. Different grades also have different chances of causing a Pokémon to appear in the camp, and ask to join your party.
If curry is cooked in any area that has land wild encounters in mainland Galar except the Wild Area, there is a chance that a wild Pokémon may appear and request to join the player, provided that they have at least one Poké Ball, Great Ball, or Ultra Ball in their Bag. This Pokémon directly joins the player without a battle. Pokémon cannot be encountered this way in the Wild Area, Isle of Armor, or Crown Tundra.
These Pokémon are drawn from the area's random encounter pool for the current weather. Some areas (such as caves) internally have a random encounter table despite random encounters not appearing in the area. Pokémon that join this way always have the Curry Connoisseur Mark.
If the player accepts the Pokémon's request to join, the Pokémon will automatically enter one of three Poké Balls in the player's Bag: Poké Ball, Great Ball (if the player has no Poké Balls), or Ultra Ball (if the player has no Poké or Great Balls).
Pokémon that would usually appear less often from random encounters are actually more likely to appear when making Curry. Each Pokémon has a different weight applied that alters its appearance rate from the original encounter table, resulting in a modified encounter table for each area.
Unlike Shiny Pokémon already owned by the player, Shiny Joining Pokémon will briefly show the sparkle effect when they approach the player, similar to the effect shown had they been encountered in the wild, or hatched from an Egg.
After cooking curry, one of the Pokémon in the Pokémon Camp may give the player an item. The player's Pokémon may give the player an item if their friendship is at level 1 or higher; other Trainer's Pokémon may give the player an item if they have high sociability.
The item gift is selected from the pool of possible items at random. Alternatively, instead of one of the below items, a Pokémon may gift the player a Berry from the area.

There are 151 kinds of curries, which are cataloged in the Curry Dex (Japanese: カレー図鑑 illustrated curry encyclopedia). It records the player's best taste rating for a given kind of curry, the key ingredient, as well as the location, date, and Pokémon it was first cooked with. Depending on the Pokémon, the size of its portion will vary. The descriptions written in it are done by a character that, according to Shigeru Ohmori, looks like Ken Sugimori.
The number of unique curries cooked will be displayed in the Curry Dex, as well as on the back of the player's League Card. If the player successfully cooks all 151 variations of Curry, speaking to the Camping King in East Lake Axewell outside of Motostoke will allow the player to swap out their cooking utensils for golden versions.

Curry was mentioned in the original Japanese versions of 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.

Curry is a popular dish in the United Kingdom, the country which inspired Galar. The name of Galar masala may be a reference to garam masala, the spice mix used in dishes such as chicken tikka masala.
Curry rice is also popular in Japan, and is often prepared and consumed on camping trips. The dish became popular in the 1800s, when Anglo-Indian naval officers introduced curry powder to Japan.
- The total amount of Curry Dex entries matches the number of Pokémon species introduced in Generation I.
- Britain and Japan's shared love of curry is referenced by an NPC in Sword and Shield, who mentions that curry is also popular in Kanto.
