Pokemon Quest Recipe and Cooking Guide

Starter recipes and how cooking works in Pokemon Quest.

You may go hunting for Pokemon in most other games in the series, but in Pokemon Quest, you have to put your cooking skills to the test and whip up some Pokemon delicacies to lure them to your camp.

The cooking system you have to deal with in Pokemon Quest is fairly simple and the dish descriptions point you in the direction you need to go to make the recipe perfect. So how does it work? Here's how you can cook up the right stuff to bring all the Pokemon to your yard.

The table below is filled with some of the known recipes for each dish, but in order to strike out on your own, you need to know about each of the game's ingredients and what their qualities are. Here's a quick rundown:

Ingredient Color Qualities + Type
 Tiny Mushroom Red Mushroom
 Bluk Berry Blue Sweet
Apricorn Yellow Plant
 Fossil Gray Mineral
Big Root (Big) Red Plant
 Icy Rock (Big) Blue Mineral
 Honey (Big) Yellow Sweet
 Balm Mushroom (Big) Gray Mushroom


Past these ingredients are the two Rainbow ingredients, which can substitute any other type of ingredient and seem to be used for the rarest dish of them all: Ambrosia of Legends.

You need to know the food qualities and types so you can piece together the recipe hints to make them on your own. The recipe list below only goes so far -- there are definitely more combinations to these dishes.

Past the ingredients, there are still a few things to know about the cooking system. For instance:

  • Using an ingredient with the "Precious" quality may attract more rare Pokemon than the typical sizes, all "big" ingredients are Precious

  • The amount indicated in the recipe description indicates the amount of a type of ingredient to be used, and can be used to figure out recipes on your own:
    • "A little" likely equates to 1 or more
    • "A few" likely equates to 2 or more
    • "A lot" likely equates to 3 or more
    • "A whole lot" likely equates to 4 or more

Discovered Recipe Combinations

The lists of potential Pokemon are by no means complete but are there to give you an idea of what you might be able to get from each dish. Some have no entries as it stands! This section will be fleshed out as we learn more.
