Best shiny sandwich recipes in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet: Easy recipes for Sparkling Power 3

pokemon scarlet violet shiny sandwiches

If you want to increase your Shiny odds in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet through the power of food, here is every shiny sandwich recipe you need to activate Sparking Power 3.

Shiny hunting has never been easier, thanks to several factors, than in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet. Overworld shinies mean players encounter hundreds of Pokemon per hour without having to enter battles, the Shiny charm is a breeze to acquire with only 400 Pokemon in the dex, and a new method of hunting raises those odds tremendously.

This new method is making sandwiches. Believe it or not, players can make special sandwiches when hosting a picnic, increasing their odds of finding a shiny. Players don’t even have to have the Shiny Charm for their odds to reach insane heights.

But with the overwhelming number of ingredients players have at their disposal, discovering these sandwiches on your own is a bit of a challenge. That’s where this guide comes in, showing players the easiest ways to make sandwiches with Sparkling Power 3.

How to get Herba Mystica in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet

While some ingredients can change in these recipes, one thing is constant: the need for two Herba Mystica per sandwich. But unlike all of the other sandwich ingredients, players can’t buy these at a store.

Instead, players have to complete five & six-star Tera Raid battles for a chance to earn Herba Mystica as a reward. Five-star Tera Raid battles are unlocked after you beat the main story, and six-star raids are unlocked after you beat the post-game story.

That being said, beating a high-level Tera Raid battle doesn’t guarantee an Herba Mystica will drop, meaning players will likely have to complete various raids to earn Herba Mystica for their shiny hunting endeavors. Or you could get lucky and have multiple Herba Mystica drop from a single raid.
