There are several ingredients that you’re going to need to gather up when crafting Sparkling Power Level 3 Sandwiches. The exact ingredients vary, with certain ingredients giving you a boost to potentially finding a specific Pokémon type. For example, given your assortment of ingredients, you might receive a Sparkling Power Level 3 boost for Bug-type Pokémon, or it might be for Dragon-type.

Regardless of the type of sandwich you want to make for Sparkling Power, the most crucial ingredient you will need is the various Herba Mystica. You can acquire these by completing some of the toughest raids possible in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet, namely the Five Star, Six Star, or Seven Star raids. As a result, you’ll receive Herba Mystica of the Salty, Sweet, Sour, Bitter, or Spicy variety.

You must use at least two Herba Mystica and the other crucial ingredients for each Sparkling Power Level 3 Sandwich. You can combine any Herba Mystica, except for Sweet and Sour, or two Sweet and two Sour for select types.

Because of these limitations, our best recommendation is to primarily use Salty, Bitter, and Spicy for your sandwiches and only use Sweet or Sour if you’re also using a Salty, Bitter, or Spicy alongside it. If you’re in a pinch, it’s important to remember combining two Sweet Herba Mystica will not work in Bug, Dragon, Fairy, Fighting, Normal, or Water-type sandwiches, and two Sour Herba Mystica will not work in Bug, Dragon, Fairy, Ghost, Ice, or Normal-type sandwiches.

These are all the ingredients you need to make a Sparkling Power Level 3 Sandwich for every Pokémon type in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet.
