Cooking in Pokémon Quest requires ingredients found during expeditions. You will need to complete an expedition to keep any ingredient you find, or use PM tickets if all three of your party Pokémon faint at once.

To start, you'll be given one normal cooking pot to use, which requires three of each ingredient when cooking. Cooking takes time, and you'll need to complete a certain amount of expeditions for the food to be finished. Once a stew is complete, a random Pokémon will appear in your base camp and they'll be recruited to your party.

The ingredients used in recipes determine the rarity of Pokémon, while the type of pot determines the Pokémon's level. Upgraded cooking pots can be obtained in various ways, which will speed up how often you can attract Pokémon.


You can get three more pots in Pokémon Quest by purchasing Expedition Packs using PM Tickets in the in-game store.

To upgrade your pots, complete certain worlds within Pokémon Quest and you'll complete a Main Quest for a Bronze, Silver or Gold pot. Here's what each pot does and the bonuses they give.

  • Bronze pots require 10 of each ingredient used and yield Level 20+ Pokémon.
  • Silver pots require 15 of each ingredient used and yield Level 40+ Pokémon
  • Gold pots require 20 of each ingredient and Level 70 + Pokémon

To switch between the normal and upgraded pots, simply press the button in the bottom-left corner when you are ready to cook.


When you're ready to cook, t either press the Auto-set button to add ingredients randomly or select them manually.

Different ingredients yield different results. Check out each ingredient description to determine its texture and flavor before considering your stew of choice. It'll take some trial and error, but once you've created a specific stew the game will save it for you.
