Pokemon Quest has a rather unique way of adding more Pokemon to your team. Instead of catching them in PokeBalls, you have to make a stew and attract Pokemon to your base camp where they’ll then join your party. Depending on what ingredients you use, you’ll cook different recipes and attract different kinds of Pokemon.

At first, it can be pretty confusing to cook recipes since you don’t really know what each ingredient does. But mastering the art of the kitchen is vital for getting the Pokemon you need to progress through the game. You even have a chance to collect shiny Pokemon by cooking, according to RPG Site.

Thanks to help from the Pokemon subreddit and Serebii, we’re able to figure things out. Here’s everything you need to know about Pokemon Quest recipes including how to cook them and what they do.

Keep in mind that there is still a lot to figure out when it comes to cooking. We will continue to update the article as we figure out more information.


How to Cook in Pokemon Quest

First let’s go over the basics. You place ingredients in each of the five slots of a pot. Then after completing a number of expeditions in the game, the food finishes cooking and a Pokemon will arrive at your base.

The key to cooking is to know what each ingredient does. Each ingredient has a number of attributes and each recipe requires the pot to be filled with a certain kind and amount of attributes. You can find a list of ingredients and their attributes below, as compiled by the Pokemon subreddit:

Tiny mushrooms: red, soft, and small

Big roots: big, red, soft, precious, and vegetables

Bluk Berries: blue, soft, small, and sweet

Icy rocks: blue, hard, precious, and minerals

Apricorns: yellow, hard, small, and vegetables

Honey: yellow, soft, precious, and sweet

Fossils: grey, hard, small, and minerals

Balm mushrooms: gray, soft, precious, and mushrooms

As user Klubbah found, the amount of each attribute necessary to craft the recipe is found in the recipe itself. So if a recipe requires a whole lot of soft ingredients, you need at least four soft ingredients.

All = 5
A whole lot = 4
A lot = 3
A few = 2
A little = 1

Reddit user Dragonite4 theorizes that the smaller ingredients on the top row have a +1 quantifier and the larger ingredients on the bottom row have a +2 quantifier. So Honey can count as two yellow, soft, precious, and sweet ingredients while Apricorns count as one yellow, hard, small, and vegetable ingredients.

Dragonite4 cooked a Mouth Watering Dip with two Big Roots and 3 Bulk Berries. The Mouth Watering Dip requires four soft ingredients and three blue ingredients. The two Big Roots add four soft attributes and the three Bulk Berries add three blue attributes, creating the Mouth Watering Dip.

However you need to be careful of overlapping certain quantifiers. Dragonite4 tried to make a Veggie Smoothie with four Apricorns and one Honey to get four plant ingredients and two sweet ingredients but because all of the ingredients were yellow they got a Yellow Curry instead.

It’s also theorized that the more precious ingredients included in a stew, the more expeditions you need to go on to cook it.

You also have to pay attention to what kind of pot you’re using. The bronze pot uses 10 ingredients per slot instead of three for the standard pot but yields higher level Pokemon, as user PheonixFontaine reported.

One last thing. Say you’re running short on a certain color of ingredient. Well each world in the game offers more of one color of ingredient than the others, allowing you to explore that world to hunt for that specific colored ingredient.

Each world has a circle-shaped icon next to its name. This icon is the Ingredient Ratio, which tells you how many cooking ingredients of a certain color you will receive compared to the others.

For instance, Backforth Brook will earn you mostly blue ingredients as the blue part of the icon takes up nearly half of the circle. You have a slightly smaller chance of earning yellow ingredients and a much small chance of earning gray and red ingredients.

Serebii has a full list of worlds and what their Ingredient Ratios are.

Now that cooking has been explained, we can get into what you need to cook all of the recipes. Below is a list of all 18 recipes, what ingredients you need for each recipe, and what Pokemon you’ll attract with it as figured out by the Pokemon subreddit, Serebii, and our own gameplay.

Note: the quality of the recipe determines the rarity of the Pokemon, according to Serebii. “Special” dishes have the most chance of getting rare Pokemon followed by “very good” and “good.” This will be indicated at the end of recipes.
