What’s better than eating a delicious sandwich and catching Shiny Pokémon? Nothing that I can think of. In Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet, a new sandwich-making mechanic was added to the game that, when made properly, can add loads of different enhancements to your journey. Some sandwiches boost your Pokémon’s Attack or Defense stats, while others boost the rate of Shiny Pokémon that appear!



Before you get started with the recipe list below, keep in mind that one specific type of ingredient called “Herba Mystica” only appears to drop after you have beaten the main game. So, like the Shiny charm before it, don’t expect to get boosted Shiny rates right out of the gate. If you’ve beaten the game, continue on to see what you need to make some sammichs!

Please note: Unfortunately, there isn’t just one sandwich that boosts all Shiny rates. Nope! You will have to make a unique sandwich for each type of Pokémon you want to boost.
