The best sandwich recipes to hunt shinies in Pokémon Scarlet and Purple

Sandwiches are a great way to increase your chances of encountering shinies in Pokémon Scarlet and Purple. Discover the best recipes.

The search for chromatic Pokémon, often referred to as ” shiny hunting, ” is a very popular activity among Pokémon fans. This quest to capture the rare, shiny version of a Pokémon is a captivating adventure, especially when you master certain methods to make this hunt less laborious.

It is therefore essential to prepare sandwiches before going hunting, but don’t imagine that just any recipe will do the trick. To increase the appearance rate of Chromatic Pokémon, you will need the Shine Aura effect.

Preparing a sandwich that grants Aura Brilliance – and ideally some other useful effects – requires following precise recipes, including rare ingredients called Secret Spices.

In our shiny hunting guide, we give you all the methods to increase your probabilities from 1/4096 (the base rate) to 1/512.

But let’s get back to sandwiches with the best recipes for your shiny hunting sessions.

The best sandwich recipes for shiny hunting

The most effective sandwiches for shiny hunting must combine three very specific effects:

  • Aura Brilliance lv 3
  • Aura Encounter Lv. 3
  • Aura Insignia level 3

The Shine Aura is obviously the most important effect, since it is the one that increases the chances that a Pokémon of the corresponding type will appear in its shiny form.

The Encounter Aura increases your chances of encountering Pokémon of the corresponding type.

Finally, the Badge Aura increases the likelihood that Pokémon encountered will carry an Badge, which comes in the form of a title associated with the Pokémon. This effect is not very important, but why deprive yourself of a shiny Pokémon with a fun title?

Combining these different effects greatly facilitates the hunt for chromatic Pokémon, even if patience remains a mandatory virtue for this practice.

Here is the list of recipes allowing you to obtain the best sandwiches for hunting each type of Pokémon in shiny version.
