Pokemon Quest Recipe Guide

Recipes in Pokemon Quest are one of the most important (and initially, most confusing) aspects of the game. They’re the primary way of getting new pokemon, and without the right recipe you just can’t get some pokemon. So here I’ve compiled the basic recipes, how to make them, and some supporting info to help get you going!The information in this guide should apply 100% to both mobile (iOS and Android) and Nintendo Switch versions of the game, though I primarily play on Mobile. If this guide’s successful (and I keep playing the game) I’ll look into making other guides for the game. I started with just this one since I find myself always having to look it up anyway. As always, feel free to comment to ask questions or point out new info!Basic Recipe InfoRecipes are the primary way of getting new pokemon in Pokemon Quest so it’s important to understand how they work to get what you want and avoid wasting materials.Higher quality materials attract rarer pokemon but take more turns/expeditions to complete; early on you should focus on low-quality recipes to quickly fill out your common pokemon list and keep a steady flow of new pokemon and not worry too much about rare ingredients.Note that higher-evolutions are never obtained through recipes, you’ll always get basic pokemon. Pokemon in Pokemon Quest appear to always evolve via level-up rather than other conditions. (Not sure about Eevee yet).Pokemon Quest Recipes ListNote Rainbow Matter can generally be substituted for recipes to raise their quality level.1 Mulligan Stew à la CubeCost: Any combination that doesn’t match another recipeEffect: Attracts a few specific pokemon2 Red Stew à la CubeCost: 4 Red ingredientsEffect: Attracts reddish pokemon3 Blue Soda à la CubeCost: 4 BlueEffect: Attracts bluish pokemon4 Yellow Curry à la CubeCost: 4 YellowEffect: Attracts yellowish pokemon5 Grey Porridge à la CubeCost: 4 GreyEffect: Attracts greyish pokemon6 Mouth Watering Dip à la CubeCost: 4 Soft 1 BlueEffect: Attracts water-type pokemon7 Plain Crepe à la CubeCost: 3 Sweet 2 GreyEffect: Attracts water-type pokemon8 Sludge Soup à la CubeCost: 4 Mushroom 1 SoftEffect: Attracts water-type pokemon9 Mud Pie à la CubeCost: 2 Mineral 3 SoftEffect: Attracts ground-type pokemon10 Veggie Smoothie à la CubeCost: 4 Plant 1 SoftEffect: Attracts grass-type pokemon11 Honey à la CubeCost: 4 Sweet 1 YellowEffect: Attracts bug-type pokemon12 Brain Food à la CubeCost: 3 Sweet 2 HardEffect: Attracts psychic-type pokemon13 Stone Soup à la CubeCost: 4 Hard, 1 MineralEffect: Attracts rock-type pokemon14 Light-as-Air Casserole à la CubeCost: 3 Mineral, 2 RedEffect: Attracts flying-type pokemon15 Hot Pot à la CubeCost: 3 Mushroom 2 Red ingredientsEffect: Attracts fire-type pokemon16 Watt a Risotto à la CubeCost: 4 Soft 1 Yellow ingredientsEffect: Attracts electric-type pokemon17 Get Swole Syrup à la CubeCost: 3 Sweet 2 Mushroom ingredientsEffect: Attracts fighting-type pokemonI swear it’s actually called this18 Ambrosia of Legends à la CubeCost: 4-5 Mystical IngredientsEffect: Attracts Legendary pokemonArticuno, Moltres, Zapdos, Mewtwo and Mew are only available from thisEven if you don’t necessarily want pokemon of a specific recipe, I’d recommend going down the list and completing one of each recipe as one of your first tasks ingame. This not only completes your recipe book ingame for easy reference, but you get some rewards for completing Challenges as well.Note that some combinations meet the requirements of multiple recipes, if this is the case the result is the lowest number from the list that it satisfies (not counting Mulligan stew).In-Depth Recipe InfoReading Recipe TermsQuantityWhen reading ingredients, the game means specific things when it uses terms like “a whole lot” vs “a few”. These can be handy to memorize so you don’t have to look them up as often.A Little1 itemsA Few2  itemsA Lot3 itemsA Whole Lot4 itemsFlavorWhen a recipe calls for a flavor, this is what it means.SmallTiny Mushroom, Bluk Berry, Apricorn, FossilPreciousBig Root, Icy Rock, Honey, Balm MushroomRedTiny Mushroom, Big RootBlueBluk Berry, Icy RockYellowApricorn, HoneyGreyFossil, Balm MushroomMushroomTiny Mushroom, Balm MushroomMineralIcy Rock, FossilPlantApricorn, Big RootVery PreciousRainbow MatterMysticalMystic ShellCooking PotsCooking Pots raise the level of attracted pokemon and increase the amount of ingredients used per-slot, but are otherwise the same in terms of which pokemon are attracted per recipe, quality per ingredients, amount of pokemon attracted etc.The best pots also add somewhat to cooking time.It’s up to you whether pots are “worth it” and it will largely depend on how many ingredients you use and whether you want to use the pokemon you catch vs using them for move training/pokedex completion.Iron PotLevel 1-153 Ingredients eachBronze PotLevel 15-4010 Ingredients eachSilver PotLevel 40-7015 Ingredients each+1 turn cooking timeGold PotLevel 70+20 Ingredients each+2 turns cooking timeCooking More DishesYou can currently only cook more than one dish by buying In App Purchases it seems. Each “Expedition Pack” ($5, $10, $18) adds a single extra dish you can cook at once.The “Mini-expedition pack” does not include one, but does increase odds of multiple pokemon per dish.Recipe Quality LevelsQuality determines both how long a recipe takes in turns/expeditions, and the “rarity” of pokemon that will be returned. Some pokemon require specific quality levels or they will not appear.Small Items1 Quality pointPrecious Items2 Quality PointsVery Precious items (Rainbow Matter)3 Quality PointsMystical Items (Mystic Shell)4 Quality PointsSpecific Pokemon ListWork in progress. Some pokemon can only be summoned with more expensive ingredients from the same recipe, so it’s a bit more complicated than one of 18 recipes for each pokemonShiny PokemonAs far as we’ve been able to tell, there’s no consistent method of getting Shinies in Pokemon quest. Shiny rates are allegedly higher in Pokemon Quest (I’ve summoned ~400 pokemon without seeing one though, so I’m not sure that’s very true).Using more precious ingredients changes which pokemon you get, so don’t use more expensive ones hoping for a Shiny, as it may prevent you from getting the specific pokemon you wanted in the first place! Quality of recipe has no bearing on shinies.If you’re low on ingredients, you may prefer to use a lower-level cooking pot and get lots of lower-level pokemon and grind a Shiny pokemon up manually rather than aiming for a level 70 Shiny from the get-go. Low level recipes are faster too of course.Note Shiny pokemon are a purely cosmetic difference, not that Shiny-hunters tend to care.You get a Challenge reward (some PM tickets) when you get your first Shiny, so while they’re sorta easy to miss (just a star on their stats card), you won’t miss your first one.The post Pokemon Quest Recipe Guide appeared first on Sir TapTap.
