Pepper is part of numerous sandwich recipes in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
It plays a key role in the sandwiches that are rich in Meal Power, and it’s important that you have a good amount of pepper in store to make the Ultra and Master Sandwiches.
Luckily, obtaining pepper follows one of the simplest processes in the game, and isn’t time-consuming either!
How to get Pepper in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet?
Pepper can be purchased in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet from the Artisan Bakery and the Aquiesta Supermarket shops for only 100 Pokédollars!
Pepper doesn’t have to be unlocked for purchase. It’s available in the shops right from the start.
The Artisan Bakery is arguably the best place to buy ingredients for any type of sandwich you’re planning to make. Along with Pepper, it also has useful ingredients like peanut butter, jam, ham, pickle, and more!
A more impressive fact about the Artisan Bakery is that it’s available in a number of places around Paldea. You can find it in the cities of Mesagoza, Levincia, and Cascarrafa.
The Artisan Bakery can also be found in the marketplace of Porto Marinada. It’s relatively smaller here, compared to its other branches.
As for the Aquiesta Supermarket, it can be found only in Levincia. It’s located towards the north of the Electric gym, near the various clothing and accessories shops of the city.
While purchasing pepper from this shop, you can find other sandwich ingredients like tofu, and the special Klawf stick.
Pepper brings a bit of a salty and spicy element to the sandwich. It does reduce egg power, though, so refrain from overusing this seasoning!
Sandwich Recipes that use Pepper in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet
Pepper is a primary seasoning required in Cheese Sandwich. Along with that, Cheese, Cream Cheese, and Salt are used as well.
While the primary cheese sandwich may not provide the best buffs for you, its upgrades provide amazing ones.
The Ultra Cheese Sandwich can be made by adding Avocado and Basil to the primary recipe, and that will help boost your Raid power (Electric) and Experience Point Power (Dragon) to Level 2!
On top of that, the Master Cheese Sandwich is made just by adding the Salty Herba Mystica, which will help you raise your Raid Power against Water types and Title power against Dragon types.
The Herba Mystica items can be obtained by battling it out and coming out victorious in the 5-star and 6-star raids.
Hamburger Patty Sandwich
The Hamburger Patty Sandwich also makes use of Pepper as a seasoning along with onion and vinegar. The main ingredient is obviously Hamburger.
Pepper is needed in all the upgraded variants of this sandwich – the Great Hamburger Patty Sandwich, the Ultra Hamburger Patty Sandwich, and the Master variant.
The Master Hamburger Patty Sandwich will boost the Raid Power as well, just like the Master variant of Cheese Sandwich, but this time, against Dragon types. Your Encounter Power (Steel) and Title Power (Psychic) are also boosted to Level 2!
The Smoky sandwich is rich with ingredients; even the simplest version of this sandwich is made with five items – Smoked Fillet, Watercress, Pepper, Vinegar, and Salt.
The Great Smoky Sandwich and Ultra Smoky Sandwich can be made by adding Red Onion for the former, followed by Basil for the latter.
Undoubtedly, the best form of this food is the Master Smoky Sandwich, which is similar to the Ultra version but with a hint of Salty Herba Mystica.
This sandwich is useful to boost the rewards from Tera Raid battles (Ghost) and Exp. Points (Psychic) that you can earn in the game, along with upgrades in Title Power (Dark).
Pepper is an extremely useful seasoning used in a horde of sandwiches in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. It’s cheap and easy to obtain, so you shouldn’t hold back in stacking up on this item.
It will definitely come in handy when you are on a picnic and you want to add some pepper to your cheese or smoky sandwich! It’s availability and the fact that it doesn’t have to be unlocked makes it all the more convenient.
