The Ingredients Pocket icon

Ingredients (Japanese: 食材 ingredient) are a type of item that appears in Pokémon Sword and Shield. One can be used as the key ingredient when cooking curry. They are stored in the Ingredients Pocket.


When Trainers cook a curry, they have the option to include an ingredient item as a key ingredient. Only one key ingredient can be used per curry, regardless of the number of Trainers participating. It is also possible to cook a curry without using a key ingredient.

The key ingredient used determines the type of curry that is made. For example, curry cooked using Sausages as the key ingredient is always Sausage Curry, with its flavor determined by the Berries used.

The amount of experience Pokémon gain after consuming the curry is determined by the rarity of the key ingredient and the rarity of the Berries used.


There are several common methods to obtain ingredients.
