Some notes on recipes…

Recipes can only attract pre-evolved Pokémon – evolved Pokémon cannot be drawn to your Base Camp. Training and leveling up your new teammates during expeditions will help them evolve into their next forms.

Pokémon Quest Recipes List and Cooking Guide-5

Aside from the ingredient types specified above, trainers can pick up Small, Precious, and Very Precious ingredients during expeditions.

Quest also gives players hints as to the amounts of each ingredient needed per recipe. You may have seen recipe terms like a whole lot, a lot, a few, and a little. These require 4 slots, 3 slots, 2 slots, and 1 slot respectively devoted to those ingredient types.

Recipe Quality

There are four different levels of quality in Pokémon Quest. These levels of quality effect the levels of Pokémon that are drawn to your Base Camp. In addition, cooking higher quality dishes may also attract better Pokémon. The quality tiers are as follows:

  • Basic: Measure of ingredient quality is 1-5 points
  • Good: Measure of ingredient quality is 6-7 points
  • Very good: Measure of ingredient quality is 8-9 points
  • Special: Measure of ingredient quality is 10+ points

In a given type of pot, the total cook time of a recipe will increase as the recipe increases in quality. For a given level of quality, the total cook time of a recipe will increase as the quality of the cooking pot increases. Accordingly, Iron pots have the lowest average cook time, whereas Gold pots have the highest average cook time.
