Ham Sandwich Recipes and Meal Power
The Jambon-Beurre sandwiches and its variants have Ham as their primary and only ingredient. Depending on the additional items added, the Meal Power varies from one sandwich to another.
For example, the Bitter Jambon-Beurre is made using Ham and Butter, with the addition of Bitter Herba Mystica. It can raise the Encounter power for Bug type to Level 2, and Exp. Point Power for Ghost type to Level 2.
The Salty Jambon-Beurre follows a similar recipe, but the Salty Herba Mystica replaces its bitter variant. This sandwich is able to boost your Encounter power for Ghost type and the Raid Power for bug type to Level 2.
The Ham Sandwich is made with the ingredients Ham and Pickle, followed by Mayonnaise and Mustard. The sandwich itself improves your Encounter power for Normal type and Raid power for Ground type.
However, further variants of this food, such as the Ultra Ham Sandwich and the Master Ham Sandwich, do an even better job with greater Meal Powers.
The Ultra Ham Sandwich can be made by adding Prosciutto and Jalapeno with the ingredients of the Ham sandwich. The Teensy Power (Rock) and Encounter Power (Fairy) can be boosted to Level 2 thanks to this sandwich.
The Master Ham Sandwich takes it up a notch by allowing you to raise the Title Power (Rock) and Catching Power (Grass) to Level 2, as well as the Encounter Power from the Ultra Ham Sandwich.
