In the anime
Old Gateau was first seen in Get Your Rotom Running!. Ash and his friends went to the Old Chateau to try some of the famous treat at the recommendation of Professor Oak. A piece of Old Gateau also appeared in Getting a Jump on the Competition!.
Casteliacones were first mentioned in A Venipede Stampede!. While in Castelia City, Iris accidentally led the group to the stand selling the treat, which they realized was closed. The same stand was referred to again in Climbing the Tower of Success!, when Ash, his friends, and Stephan were attempting to solve a quiz at the Wishing Bell Festival. Thankfully, Cilan remembered eating a Casteliacone in the past, allowing them to figure out the right answer.
Casteliacones were also sold at the Vertress Conference, as seen in Lost at the League! and A Unova League Evolution!. Bianca bought several cones from an ice cream stand and offered some to Ash and his friends.
Lumiose Galettes first appeared in Kalos League Passion with a Certain Flare!, where Meyer and Clembot brought Ash, his friends, Sawyer, and their Pokémon two boxes of them to celebrate Ash advancing to the finals of the Lumiose Conference. More Lumiose Galettes appeared in The First Day of the Rest of Your Life!, where Ash and Serena bought themselves some to eat from a bakery in Lumiose City.
Antidotes first appeared in The Sun, the Scare, the Secret Lair!, where Professor Kukui handed one to Ash from his medical kit, for him to cure his Rowlet from the poison inflicted on it by James's Mareanie attacking it with Sludge Bomb.
Full Restores debuted in A Mission of Ultra Urgency!, where Ash and his classmates received a medical kit containing three of them, among other healing items, to be used during their Ultra Guardian missions. During their first mission, Lillie used one to heal a Snorlax that had been drained by a Buzzwole. In Full Moon and Many Arms!, Lillie used another Full Restore from the medical kit to help heal Lunala.
In Errand Endurance!, Team Rocket sent Pelipper to get them a Casteliacone to go with their apple pie. Fearing the absentminded bird Pokémon couldn't fulfill the errand without aid, the trio disguised themselves as ice cream vendors and gave Pelipper the ice cream themselves before returning to their base. However, as soon as the ice cream had arrived, both it and the pie were eaten by Morpeko.
In the manga
In The Final Battle I, Gold was seen eating some Lava Cookies at the Hoenn Battle Frontier. As it was the first time he came to Hoenn, he decided to try the region's famous delicacy, and found them delicious.
In Out-Odding Oddish, while on his way to the Pokéathlon Dome, Gold was seen eating some Rage Candy Bars that he had recently purchased. He also threw one into Whitney's mouth, almost causing her to choke. Gold later gave a Rage Candy Bar to Bruno, who immediately fell in love with its delicious taste.

In the TCG
Full Heal was included as a Trainer card in the first release of the TCG, the Base Set (Expansion Pack in Japan), with artwork by Keiji Kinebuchi. It removes all Special Conditions from one of the player's Active Pokémon. After several reprints, it later received new art by Kinebuchi in the Japanese Pokémon-e Starter Deck, which made up part of the English Expedition Base Set. Full Heal wasn't reprinted again until the SoulSilver Collection, when it was reclassified as an Item card; it also featured new artwork by Takashi Yamaguchi. While the print would be included in the English HeartGold & SoulSilver expansion, the Trainer card classifications weren't adopted until the Black & White expansion, which also included a reprint of Full Heal. Originating from the White Collection in Japan, it again features new artwork, this time by 5ban Graphics. 5ban Graphics also created the artwork for the next reprint included in the Furious Fists expansion (Japanese Rising Fist expansion). Finally, the Japanese Expansion Pack 20th Anniversary and English Evolutions expansion, sets celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Pokémon franchise, reprinted the card with its original Kinebuchi artwork.
Big Malasada heals the player's Active Pokémon of 20 damage and one Special Condition. It was released in the Collection Moon and Sun & Moon Starter Set in Japan, which were combined to form the English Sun & Moon expansion.
In the TFG
The following is a list of cards named Full Heal.
|Full Heal||T||Next Quest||1/8|
- 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.
- Most "local specialty" items introduced since Generation III — the Lava Cookie, Old Gateau, Casteliacone, Lumiose Galette, Shalour Sable, Big Malasada, and Pewter Crunchies — are variants of the Full Heal. The Rage Candy Bar, introduced in Generation II, was a variant of the Potion until Generation VII. The Sweet Heart, introduced in Generation V, is the only "local specialty" item that is still a variant of the Potion.
- 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."
- Although Shalour Sables aren't obtainable in Pokémon X and Y, they're mentioned by a female Tourist standing near the Galette Stand in Lumiose City.
- Shalour Sable is the only "local specialty" not found in its home region.
- Galar is the only core series region without a local specality. However, it introduced a host of ingredients and food products players can cook and serve to their Pokémon in curry.
