Pokemon Quest recipes list

Pokemon Quest has introduced an interesting new way to collect ’em all — cooking up some Pokemon-attracting dishes. The game doesn’t feature much of a recipe guide in-game, so we put together this Pokemon Quest recipe guide to help you catch ’em all.

Of course, a Pokemon Quest recipe list alone won’t get you very far, so we’ve included some details about how cooking pots, recipes, and ingredients work. We’ve even added of some of the most powerful Pokemon you can attract with each recipe.

How to unlock cooking pots in Pokemon Quest

Pokemon Quest Recipe Guide

One of the most important aspects of recipes in Pokemon Quest is what you use to cook them. There are four types of cooking pots available, and you unlock them by progressing through the areas in Tumblecube Island.

Higher-level cooking pots use up more ingredients, but they attract higher level Pokemon with a small bonus to their base stats. Because of this, it’s always best to use the highest level cooking pot you have. Here’s a full list of Pokemon Quest cooking pot upgrades.

To unlock more cooking pots, you’ll have to spend real money. Getting the maximum of four cooking pots will run you $30, and a single additional pot costs $5. If you’re looking to min-max your way through Pokemon Quest, pick up the Expedition 3-Pack Bundle early. It will allow you to cook four Pokemon Quest recipes at once, speeding up your progress.

Pokemon Quest recipe ingredients and farming guide

Pokemon Quest Farside Fjord Electric Bonus Type

There are ten ingredients to use in Pokemon Quest recipes, and each one falls into a number of categories. For this recipe guide, the only category you need to remember is rarity.

Some ingredients are precious — slightly more difficult to find — and others are small — meaning more common. Check out the full list below, as well as where to farm ingredients in Pokemon Quest.

Happenstance Island. Drops from legendary Pokemon

When it comes to farming, you’ll want to farm the highest-level areas possible. Pay attention to the small wheel next to the name of the area. It shows the chances for each color of ingredient to drop.

To farm effectively, you should invest in decorations that increase ingredient drops. The cheapest are the three Cushions and Dodrio Tent, which increase drops by 50 percent. Make sure you use some of your early tickets on them to get full value out of your investment.

A number of other decorations will increase your ingredient drops too, and you should get them as soon as you’ve collected more PM Tickets. If your ingredient intake isn’t enough to continuously cook while out on expeditions, these small bonuses add up quickly.

Pokemon Quest recipe list

Hot Pot Recipe

Pokemon Quest recipes require a certain combination of ingredients based on their hardness, sweetness, size, and so on. To keep things simple, we’ve listed below a single recipe for each dish. While other recipes will work, the ingredients listed are the most cost-effective.

It’s worth noting that each recipe has different qualities, and the best Pokemon are only available at Very Good or Special quality. The quality is listed above the recipe type in-game (as seen above). Regardless of the quality of the recipe, only base evolutions can be collected this way. To gain their more powerful forms, simply level them up.
