Steel-Type Shiny Boost Sandwich Recipe in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet
To boost your chances of encountering and catching a Steel-Type Shiny Pokémon with a sandwich, you will need three types of ingredients:
- Hamburger x1
- Salty Herba Mystica x1
- Sweet Herba Mystica x1
How to Get Hamburgers in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet
Finding regular food items in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet is fairly simple. They are all available in different shops easily found in various Paldea towns. These items cost money, but the prices are usually not that high.
Still, it can save you time if you know which store chain to visit if you need a particular ingredient since the inventory lists differ from shop to shop.
Hamburgers in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet are available in Deli Cioso shops, and you’ll have to cash out 380 Pokedollars per item.
Deli Cioso stores can be found in towns like Cascarrafa, Levincia, Mesagoza, and others.
How to Get Salty and Sweet Herba Mystica in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet
Herba Mystica is a bit more difficult to get than standard sandwich ingredients. You can’t find any variations of this item in shops. The best way to get Herba Mystica is to focus on 5-star and 6-star Tera Raids after completing the main storyline.
You’ll have to go through quite a lot of raids to get all Herba Mystica types and quantities that you need for different types of sandwiches, and those high-tier battles are not easy. Still, significantly boosting your chances of getting a Steel-type Shiny Pokémon makes it all worth it in the end.
