One of the biggest aspects of Pokemon Quest is the cooking ability. Between expeditions you can cook and learn cooking recipes to make dishes that will attract specific types of Pokemon. There are 18 known cooking recipes in Pokemon Quest, but there are also a few hidden recipes that players can cook up. This article covers all of the known cooking recipes in Pokemon Quest so you know exactly what ingredients to use to make each dish and attract the Pokemon you’re looking for. We’ll continue adding to our recipes list as new cooking recipes are discovered, including the Hot Pot a la Cube recipe and more of the highly requested recipes in the game.

At the moment we have Pokemon Quest recipes for Mulligan Stew, Red Stew, Blue Soda, Yellow Curry, Grey Porridge, Mouth-watering Dip, Plain Crepe, Sludge Soup, Mud Pie, Veggie Smoothie, Honey Nectar, Brain Food, Stone Soup, Light-as-Air Casserole, Hot Pot a la Cube, Watt a Risotta, Get Swole Syrup, Ambrosia of Legends. If any new recipes are found, we'll be sure to add them to this article. You can find cooking information, a quick recipe list and complete details on all known recipes below!

Pokemon Quest Cooking Details

To capture new Pokemon, you need to use the cooking pot at base camp. When a dish is done cooking, depending on the dish you made, a Pokemon will wander into your base camp and be added to your Pokedex. Once a Pokemon is in your Pokedex you can add them to your team, use them for training or more.

Each time you’re back at base camp you can click on the cooking pot to initiate the cooking mini-game. At this point you can select an array of ingredients to place into the pot. Once the pot is full you can start cooking. It will take some time for dishes to cook, so feel free to go out on several expeditions while you wait for the food to be done. When a dish is done cooking you’ll see the icon in the lower right corner change to indicate the food is done.

PM Tickets

Since cooking takes time, try to make sure you’re always cooking something when you leave for expeditions. If you don’t have the necessary ingredients you can wait, but if you have what you need to cook the dish you want, you should always be cooking to save time. If you get impatient, you can use PM Tickets to speed up the cooking process.

The more cooking time that’s left for the dish, the more PM Tickets it will cost you to get the dish immediately. For example, if you need five expedition days to make a dish, it may cost you 50 PM Tickets if you want it as soon as you start cooking, but only 20 PM Tickets if you go on a few expeditions first.

Ingredient Amounts

Pay close attention to the Ingredients Amount number near the upper left corner of the cooking screen. This number indicates how many ingredients you’ll need to fill each slot in the pot, and changes as you upgrade to new cooking pots. For example, if the Ingredients Amount number is three (default pot), even though there are five slots, each time you place an item in a slot you will be using three of that item. So instead of requiring five total items to fill the pot and start cooking, you actually need 15 items.

Cooking Pots

As you play through more and more expeditions you can eventually unlock more cooking pots that will change the Ingredients Amount number, the level of the Pokemon the food attracts, and potentially what recipes you can make. If you want to attract higher level Pokemon, you need to upgrade your pot. This will also require you to need a lot more ingredients. You can take a look at the additional pots below, and don't forget you can find more strategies and advice in our Pokemon Quest game hub!

Additional Pots

  • Default Pot - Slots Require 3 of each ingredient.
  • Bronze Pot - Slots Require 10 of each ingredient.
  • Silver Pot - Slots Require 15 of each ingredient.
  • Gold Pot - Slots Require 20 of each ingredient.

Cooking Ingredients

At the moment there are 10 total ingredients in the game that you can find while you’re out on expedition defeating other Pokemon. We know the names of nine of these ingredients and will be adding the last one as soon as we have that information. If new ingredients appear we’ll add them to the list.

Cooking Recipes Quick List

There are a variety of different recipes that result in the same dishes. For example, you can make a Hot Pot with three Tiny Mushrooms and two Bluk Berries, or you can make it with three Tiny Mushrooms and two Big Roots. Because of this, we’ve included one specific recipe with each dish in the bale below, along with the requirements to make the dish so you can experiment with additional recipes. Below the table you'll find all known recipes for each dish and the specific Pokemon they attract.

Note #1: All ingredient amounts listed are by slot. For example, Tiny Mushroom (5) means you need to place Tiny Mushrooms in all five spaces in the pot. That's 15 total Tiny Mushrooms with the default pot, and 100 with the gold pot.

Note #2: Mulligan Stew a la Cube is the generic dish you get whenever you use ingredients that don’t make anything else.
