Many players are seeking the best ways to farm Herba Mystica in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet, and these are the Tera Raids and methods that provide the highest chance of obtaining rare sandwich ingredients.

Pokemon Scarlet & Violet’s post-game revolves mainly around Tera Raids. Once the AI Professor Sada or Turo is sent away by the time machine, players are left with few activities outside of battling in the school tournament or taking on fearsome Tera Raids.

After the credits roll, players will unlock five-star Tera Raid battles, and upon completing the post-game, players will unlock six-star Tera Raids. These challenging boss fights are the only way players can acquire Herba Mystica, a mysterious plant that can significantly increase the odds of finding a Shiny Pokemon.

However, Herba Mystica is hard to come by as its drop rate is seemingly low. Despite every five-star raid and above having the chance to drop an herb, players can spend hours completing raids and never finding one. That being said, there are specific Tera Raid Pokemon players can target to farm Herba Mystica much more reliably.
