Sweet Herba Mystica is an item you’re going to need to get if you’re going to hunt for Shiny Pokemon in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.
The consumable is one of five Herba Mystica in the Switch games, which are crucially used as ingredients for Shiny Sandwiches – must-have items which greatly increase chances of finding Shiny Pokemon.
Sweet Herba Mystica drops after completing 5 and 6-star raids, but it doesn’t drop every time. As is the case with the rest of the Herba Mystica, you’re going to have to work hard to find it.
Here’s everything you need to know to find Sweet Herba Mystica.
