One of the most impactful new mechanics in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet is the addition of picnics. A wide range of previous mechanics, from breeding to Pokémon-Amie, have had their effects wrapped up into the new picnic experience.

By making sandwiches during picnics, players can give themselves Meal Powers based on the ingredients they use. These Meal Powers have a number of effects, from increasing the amount of experience points you gain to making it easier to catch wild Pokémon. For shiny hunting purposes, there are two relevant Meal Powers that come from Pokémon Scarlet and Violet sandwich recipes. The first is Sparkling Power, which increases your odds of finding shiny Pokémon. The second is Encounter Power, which increases your odds of finding Pokémon of a given type.

In addition, these picnics play a role in the hunt for shiny Pokémon through their sandwich making minigame. Here are the best sandwich recipes to help increase your odds of encountering shiny Pokémon in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
