Pokemon Scarlet and Violet offers players a new way to increase their chances of finding a Shiny Pokemon. Shiny Pokemon are incredibly rare variants that have different colors than normal Pokemon. Players typically have a 1 in 4096 chance of finding a Shiny Pokemon in the wild, though each Pokemon game has different ways to significantly improve those odds. While Pokemon Scarlet and Violet brings back the popular Shiny Charm item found in previous Pokemon games, it also swaps out the repeat encounter focused method to further increase your Shiny chances Pokemon Scarlet and Violet for a simpler method involving picnics.
That’s right, to increase your chances of finding Shiny Pokemon in the wild, all you need to do is make a sandwich that comes with “Shining Power”. Each kind of sandwich offers different meeting benefits based on the ingredients used. To increase the chances of finding Shiny Pokemon in the wild, players should use Herba Mystica, which can be collected from 5-star raids once they’ve beaten the game. Players simply need to add two Herba Mystica to a sandwich to activate a Shining Power boost. The type of Pokemon that gets a boost depends on the base ingredient used in the sandwich.
Several sources on Twitter and elsewhere are already sharing a list of minimal-ingredient sandwiches that boost Shining Power for specific types of Pokemon. This list was created based on the GBATemp formulas and is the result of early players experimenting with making sandwiches. This will at least give players a starting point as the Pokemon community sorts out the full nuances of how sandwiches work in the game.
