"Our partners are animals!? Join forces with the Healing Animals in order to heal our precious Earth!"
From left to right: Cure Fontaine, Cure Sparkle, Cure Grace and Latte.

Healin’ Good♡Pretty Cure is the 17th installment of the Pretty Cure franchise and the 15th continuity. The show focuses on the Healing Garden, a magical garden protected by Healing Animals, fairies based on various animals, as well as a dog-like fairy named Latte and her mother Teatinu. When a group called the Bjögens attack the Garden in hopes of poisoning the entire planet, Latte, as well as three of the Healing Animals, Rabirin, Pegitan and Nyatoran, flee to Earth in hopes of finding human partners to become Pretty Cure.


Healin' Good Pretty Cure provides examples of:

  • Actor Allusion: This wouldn't be the first time that Aoi Yuuki voices a young girl that has a weak constitution in her body. Or even a Magical Girl.
  • Bag of Holding: The Healing Animals carry identical Healing Room Bags. Not only do they carry all manner of equipment, but inside them are Rabirin, Pegitan and Nyatoran's rooms.
  • Bond One-Liner: "Take care, now!"JP  Notable in that it's a common phrase used to wish someone good health.
  • By the Power of Grayskull!: "Pretty Cure Operation! Cure Touch!" Notably, this is the first installment in a while to use "Pretty Cure" as part of the transformation phrase after Maho Girls Pre Cure dropped it.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: As per the new tradition, Nodoka and Latte make a guest appearance in the last episode of Star★Twinkle Pretty Cure.

  • Elemental Powers: Elements are one of this series' main themes, with the collectible of this season, Elemental Bottles, allowing the cures to use the powers of various elements of nature.
  • Feud Episode: Episode 2 involves Rabirin realizing that Nodoka's actually not very athletic and though she doesn't express herself properly at first, breaks up with Nodoka for her safety. They make up by the end of the episode.
  • Green Aesop: One of the themes of this series is saving the environment, to follow the overall theme of health.
  • Kindly Vet: The Healing Animals, who are the partners of the Cures, are medical trainees.
  • Labcoat of Science and Medicine: An integrated design element in the Cures' costumes.
  • Land, Sea, Sky: The three Cures represent the elements plants need to thrive: Cure Grace is the Earth, Cure Fontaine is Water, and Cure Sparkle is Sunlight.
  • Local Hangout: The "Cafe Wonderful Juice" juice bar, owned by Mei, Hinata's sister.
  • Meaningful Name: Each of the Cure's last names has a kanji in it that relates to their primary element or Cure form. Nodoka's is 'flower', Chiyu's is 'fountain', and Hinata's is 'light'.
  • Mentor Mascot: Each Cure gets her own mascot, much like in the original, Splash Star, Heartcatch, and DokiDoki.
  • Power Dyes Your Hair: When the girls transform into their Cure forms, their otherwise normal-colored hair is dyed into more vibrant colors.
  • Precious Puppy: The main mascot for this season, Latte, is an adorable puppy.
  • Hypocritical Humor: After Nodoka meets the Healing Animals, they lecture her on the need to keep her status as a Pretty Cure and the Healing Animals themselves a secret. While doing so, a flashback from the first episode is shown from when they were trying to first search for their partners by loudly announcing it to any on-going passerbys.
  • Shout-Out:
    • In episode 4, Nyatoran asking Hinata to become Cure Sparkle is a deliberate one to Fate/stay night's famous "Are you my master?" scene.
  • Transformation Trinket: In a first for the franchise, this season's wand also serves as the transformation device, with the Healing Animals turning into the Healing Stick to let the Cures transform.
  • Two Guys and a Girl:
    • The initial trio of generals is set up like this. Daruizen and Guaiwaru serve as the guys, while Shindoine is the sole girl.
    • Not counting Latte, the trio of Healing Animals also fits with Rabirin being the sole girl amongst them (Pegitan and Nyatoran).
  • Unusually Uninteresting Sight: In the first episode, when the Healing Animals make their first attempt to find partners, the people passing by them seem relatively calm about the fact that a bunch of talking baby animals are trying to get their attention, believing they may either be stuffed animals or escaped animals from a zoo.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Actually one of very rare cases where the trope is averted for the Cures' civilian identities: the main trio's normal hair is a relatively darker and desaturated variant of the Blonde, Brunette, Redhead archetype.
