In Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, there’s certainly a whole range of new and old Pokémon alike to capture. However, there’s always that one kind of Pokémon that will remain at the pinnacle of every Trainer’s collection, the Shiny Pokémon. Notoriously rare, and a great addition to your ranks to show off to other players, a Shiny Pokémon is something you’ll want to strive toward obtaining at some point in your game. While rare, there are ways to boost your chances in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, through Shiny Sandwiches. This is a list of all Shiny Sandwich recipes in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
Base Ingredients for All Shiny Sandwiches
For all your Shiny Sandwiches you’ll have to use two staple ingredients. Fortunately, they’re not difficult or too expensive to obtain. To create the base layer for your sandwich you’ll have to use one serving of Cucumber and one serving of Pickle.
Type Ingredients for Shiny Sandwich
Once you’ve done the base layer for your sandwich, you’ll have to choose the ingredient you want based on the type of Pokémon you’re looking to catch. You’ll need three servings of these ingredients to fulfill the second layer.
|Fire||3x Red Pepper|
|Electric||3x Yellow Pepper|
|Ice||3x Klawf Stick|
|Poison||3x Green Pepper|
|Bug||3x Cherry Tomato|
|Ghost||3x Red Onion|
|Dark||3x Smoked Fillet|
Herb Mystica Combinations for Shiny Sandwich
You need to choose any two of the Herba Mysticas from the list. There are exceptions that will cancel out the combinations and you should not use them together. Do not combine:
- 1x Sweet and 1x Sour
- 2x Sweet Herbs will not allow you to catch, Normal, Water, Fighting, Bug, Dragon, or Fairy.
- 2x Sour Herbs will not allow you to catch, Normal, Ice, Bug, Ghost, Dragon, or Fairy.
Shiny Sandwich Creation
You need to ensure that when you’re crafting your sandwich that nothing on it falls off. This might cause your final product to be completely different from what you were expecting it to be, and you might not get the right typing for your Sandwich. You’ll know you’ve succeeded as you’ll get Level 3 Sparkling, as well as some other Level 3 power stacks as a final outcome. You don’t need to put the top part of the sandwich on to get the boosts.
