Pokemon Scarlet & Violet Herba Mystica guide: Tera Raid battles, drops & types

Pokemon Scarlet Violet Herba Mystica drops

Pokemon Scarlet & Violet players must collect Herba Mystica as rewards from five and six-star Tera Raid battles to get the Sparkling Power sandwiches. Below is everything to know about each type of Herba Mystica and their drops.

Pokemon Scarlet & Violet players will have many tasks to complete once they have beaten the main storyline for the games. One of these key activities is Shiny hunting. There are plenty of ways to Shiny Hunt in the Paldea region, from wandering the overworld with a Shiny Charm to tackling Mass Outbreaks. Each holds the possibility of a lucky find.

One of the best ways to boost Shiny odds in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet is by making sandwiches. Using the Herba Mystica introduced in the main storyline of the game, players can craft special sandwiches that offer a “Sparkling Power”. This boost makes it more likely to bump into a Shiny while exploring.
