The Herba Mystica is one of the most powerful items in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. This is because this plant is used in many sandwich recipes, and these provide potent bonuses. There are several types of Herba Mystica, and while all of these are useful – the Salty Herba Mystica is by far the most used ingredient. As such, you will no doubt want to get as much of this ingredient as you can. In this guide, we’ll tell you everything you need to know about the Salty Herba Mystica in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, including where and how to get it, as well as what it can be used for.
How to Get Salty Herba Mystica in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet
During the course of the game, you’ll naturally run into some Salty Herba Mystica when you go after the Titans in the Path of Legends. You need to do this in order to upgrade your Legendary bike Pokemon. This will just give you a taste of Herba Mystica (pun intended) and after that you then won’t have access to this ingredient for a long while.
In fact, you will have to wait until after you have finished the main game if you want to obtain this ingredient. The only way to farm Salty Herba Mystica (and any other Herba Mystica, for that matter, including Sweet Herba Mystica, Sour Herba Mystica, and Spicy Herba Mystica) is through 5-star and 6-star raids. We don’t have to point out that these raids represent some of the toughest fights in the game, so you will need to have your Pokemon sufficiently leveled up if you want to handle this. You will get between one and three Herba Mystica this way, and while the Salty Herba Mystica isn’t a guaranteed drop, you will want to farm this so that you can make all of the Shiny Sandwich Recipes, all of which include the Salty Herba Mystica as an ingredient.
