Pokémon Scarlet and Violet: How to Get Salty Herba Mystica?

Are you struggling to find the Salty Herba Mystica in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet after using the ingredient towards the start? It just disappears, doesn’t it?!

It goes without saying that the Salty Herba Mystica is one of the most sought after ingredients in the game because of its effectiveness in food items, especially the shiny sandwich recipes.  

So, let’s have a look at the methods you can pursue to get some Salty Herba Mystica!

How to Get Salty Herba Mystica in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet?

The only two ways to get the Salty Herba Mystica in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet are by battling it out in the 5-star and 6-star Tera Raids consistently.

The same method also applies for the other Herba Mystica items available in the game, like the Sweet Herba Mystica and the Spicy Herba Mystica.

If you’ve done raids before, you probably already know that the rewards aren’t fixed. It is, sadly, a game of chance. The Herba Mystica items are the rarest of the lot as well and have the lowest possibilities of coming up.

If luck’s not on your side, it might take you a while to earn a good amount of Salty Herba Mystica. The number of Salty Herba Mystica you can earn from one 5-star or 6-star raid ranges from 1 to 3.

The Salty Herba Mystica is an important ingredient in the Shiny sandwich recipes and making these sandwiches definitely increases your likelihood of catching more Shiny Pokémon, especially the new Pokémon added in the game!

Tips to increase the chances of getting Salty Herba Mystica in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

The raid battles are extremely difficult and coming out on top requires proper skills and good Pokémon. If your Pokémon are weak, you’ll have a really hard time winning the battles, let alone get the rewards.

Make sure your Pokémon are strong enough to face the strong Pokémon counterparts in the 5-star and 6-star TERA raid battles.

You can use nature mints to modify a certain attribute of a Pokemon and make it even stronger. If you’re confused, a good example of this can be seen in our Nature guides for Fuecoco and Clodsire.

I’d recommend putting your focus on 5-star raid battles more than the 6-star ones.

The 6-star raids may come with better odds of getting the Salty Herba Mystica, but the enemies in 6-star raids are much stronger and effort you’d need to put in to win 6 is much greater than that for 5-star ones.

The better odds in the 6-star battles are outweighed by the easier competition in the 5-star ones. You can also capture the Pokemon you defeat in these raid battles; in this case, Master balls and Dusk balls can be efficient.

Moreover, if you have the online facilities, always go for online raids or co-op mode and play with other people rather than the AI.

Finally, in the 5-star battles, there are certain Pokémon in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet that increase the possibility of obtaining the Salty Herba Mystica.

Some of the Pokémon belonging to this list are Chansey, Gengar, Glalie, Amoonguss, and Slowpoke. There are a few more Pokémon that help to improve the odds of obtaining Salty Herba Mystica as well.

Whenever you see one of these Pokémon, you should definitely opt for that particular raid.

Wrapping Up

Unfortunately, none of the tips above guarantee that you’ll get the Salty Herba Mystica in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. It only increases the probability.

Obtaining this valuable item demands some grinding on your part and levelling up of your Pokémon. Stronger Pokémon will definitely help you become victorious in the Raid TERA battles more frequently and get more Salty Herba Mystica quickly.
