You can also find Alcremie in the camp, which has the ability to create whipped cream in its hands. There are many different flavors and colors to be discovered!

Pokemon Camp - Cooking Curry on Rice

In Pokemon Camp, you can cook for your party Pokemon and share it with them. Make curry on rice, a dish that is enjoyed by the people in the Galar Region.


Just like real curry, you can choose from many different ingredients when crafting your masterpiece.

The type of curry you end up with depends entirely on what goes into it! Try using a wide variety of berries.

Fan the flames to get that curry cooking! Once it has started, you will need to stir the pot to craft the most delicious curry.

Players will receive a ranking for the taste of the curry they made. Besides bragging rights for the player, this has a number of benefits of the Pokemon who eat it, including restoring HP, gaining Exp. Points, and increasing their Friendship stat.

Pokemon Camp - Visiting other Camps

Pokemon Camp is one of many ways that you can play and interact with other trainers.


Pokemon Camping can be done together with other players. Up to four players can camp together. This will give your Pokemon a chance to play with your friends' Pokemon in a friendly and fun environment. Once everyone is present, why not share some curry with the party?


If you are connected to the internet or local connection and you come across another tent in the Wild Area, this means that you have found another player's Pokemon Camp.

You will need to have purchased a Nintendo Switch Online Membership in order to join another player's camp through an internet connection. This is not required when playing locally however.
