How to Get Salty and Sweet Herba Mystica in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet
Unfortunately, no stores in Paldea sell any of the Herba Mystica variations. To get Salty or Sweet Herba Mystica players must invest more time and effort compared to getting basil.
You will need to beat the game first and then grind your way through upper-tier Tera Raids for a chance of getting your hands on the Herba Mystica variation you need. These rare items drop as rewards for completing 5-star or 6-star raids only, and you won’t always get the variation you need, so be prepared for some hard work.
