Looking for Shiny Pokémon can be tedious, but luckily there is one sure way to tip the odds in your favor. Sandwiches can provide you with the right boosts to get that Shiny Pokémon you want. This guide will show you the Shiny Sandwich recipes in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
Shiny Sandwich Recipes
Shiny Pokémon are highly coveted among players due to their different color from other Pokémon of the same species. Shiny Pokémon also sparkle when they first appear in battle. Getting an edge on the odds of catching a Shiny is very important and the Shiny Sandwich recipes will do just that. The standard odds of catching a Shiny is 1 in 4,096, and the Shiny Sandwich cuts the odds to 1 in 1,024 thanks to one special ingredient.
The core ingredient that you must have is the Herba Mystica, which is the same ingredient that the Titan Pokémon ate throughout the story. Once you have beaten the game, you will be able to find Herba Mystica in Tera Raids that are 5 Star or higher. Herba Mystica is a rare drop, so you may have to do a lot of 5-Star or higher Tera Raids to get them.
Once you get some Herba Mystica, you will be able to make some sandwiches that help you encounter Shiny Pokémon more often. Below you can find the recipe guide that will list the Pokémon Type, Ingredient, and Herba Mystica that will need to be used.
|Pokémon Type||Ingredient||Herba Mystica|
|Bug||Cherry Tomatoes||Salty x 2|
|Dark||Smoked Fillet||Salty, Sweet|
|Dragon||Avocado||Salty x 2|
|Electric||Yellow Bell Pepper||Salty, Spicy|
|Fairy||Tomato||Salty x 2|
|Fighting||Pickles||Salty x 2|
|Flying||Prosciutto||Salty x 2|
|Ghost||Red Onion||Salty x 2|
|Ground||Ham||Salty x 2|
|Ice||Klawf Sticks||Salty x 2|
|Normal||Chorizo||Salty x 2|
|Poison||Noodles||Salty x 2|
|Psychic||Onion||Salty x 2|
|Rock||Jalapeno||Salty x 2|
|Water||Cucumber||Salty x 2|
You will always need to use two Herba Mystica and just one ingredient. Not following the recipe will result in less Sparkling Power, as seen in the picture above. After making your sandwich, you should get Sparkling Power 3 and boost the Shiny odds in your favor.
