How to make a Level 3 Sandwich in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

  • Pokémon Scarlet and Violet's Mario Party-style sandwich-making minigame is a bit of a mess, especially when you're piling up lots of ingredients. But it's also useful: Sandwiches provide passive boosts that affect things like Pokémon encounters, Shiny Pokémon spawn rates, or accumulating TM-building resources from certain types of Pokémon. You can buy Pokemon at PKMBuy.

    There are over a hundred sandwich recipes in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, but there are even more combinations to make in Sandwich Maker Creative Mode. Developer Game Freak's pre-made sandwich recipes only reach level two. If you want a stronger sandwich, you'll have to come up with the recipe yourself.

    Does Pokémon Scarlet and Violet have a level 3 sandwich?
    Yes! Each of Sandwich's passive boosts is assigned a level from one to three. Level 1 sandwiches provide the smallest boost, and level 3 sandwiches provide the greatest lift. The second-level sandwiches are good (for example, I ate a second-level egg strength and immediately had five eggs). But the third level ups the stakes even more, which is especially useful for players looking for something specific, whether it's shiny Pokémon, EV training, or breeding.

    How do I make a level 3 sandwich in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet?
    The answer is Mystery Grass, a super rare ingredient that you need to grind to get it. Sandwich systems and their ingredients are more complex than they appear, which is why the community has been researching how all the different combinations work together. So far, a lot of work has focused on how to get level three Sparkling Power, which increases your chances of finding a Shiny Pokémon.

    Thankfully, users have found a very effective way to base their Cucumbers and Pickles on and vary the main ingredients—three of each—to determine the Sparkling Power type.

    Other players began to figure out how to maximize other boosted levels such as Title Power and Encounter Power without increasing their shiny odds. Like the sparkling odds, you'll need at least one Mystic Herb, and load up on double or triple the various ingredients.

    What am I doing wrong?
    If you're making these recipes and don't get a tertiary boost, some of your ingredients may fall off the sandwich. All toppings need to stay on the sandwich. Nothing falls off, not even a slice of onion.

    For many people, the problem is the top slice of bread—it's heavy, and it makes the sandwich tip over. Good news though: you don't need top slices at all. You can remove it completely from the dish, but make sure it doesn't touch any ingredients at all. You can still make a perfect sandwich without it.

    If you want to buy Pokémon for Scarlet and Violet, please look for it on, there are not only Shiny Pokemon and Held Items, but also custom Pokémon. Soon you'll be able to customize the SV Pokémon you want.
