The new Picnic feature, introduced in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, comes with a super-useful sandwich-making option. Different sandwich recipes give various perks and boosts, but Shiny boost sandwiches take the crown because they increase the odds of encountering and catching rare Shiny Pokémon.

In this article, you will learn how to make a Fighting-type Shiny boost sandwich in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. In case you’re hunting other types as well, read our guides for making Ghost-type, Electric-type, or Dark-type Shiny boost sandwiches to make sure you catch ’em all!

Fighting-Type Shiny Boost Sandwich Recipe in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

The recipe for a Fighting-type Shiny boost sandwich requires only two ingredients:

  • Pickles x1
  • Salty Herba Mystica x2

How to Get Pickles in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

Players can find pickles in Sure Cans stores all across Paldea—for example, in Porto Marinada, Levincia, or Mesagoza. Aquiesta Supermarket in Levincia also has these items, and the price in both cases is 90 Pokedollars, which makes pickles one of the cheaper food ingredients in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

How to Get Salty Herba Mystica in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

No matter what type of Herba Mystica you may need for these Shiny boost sandwiches, you won’t be able to find them in regular stores. Unfortunately, getting Herba Mystica will take some effort and time because these items drop as rewards for successfully finishing five-star and six-star Tera Raids.

Available after completing the game, these high-tier battles are not easy and require some serious preparation. Your best chance of winning Herba Mystica and other useful rewards is to play with friends since AI companions usually don’t fight as well.
