Pokemon Sword and Shield have added a new cooking mechanism through which players can make curry for their Pokemon and trainer. Curry is basically Pokemon food that is made by using numerous ingredients. This Pokemon Sword and Shield Curry recipes will list all the curry recipes in the game as well as the ingredients required. There is a variety of Curry types that you can cook and collect.
Pokemon Sword and Shield Curry Recipes
Curry tends to increase your friendship levels with your Pokemon, and some Pokemon evolve due to their friendship levels, thus this adds to the advantages of Curry.
A perfectly cooked Curry will also raise your Pokemon’s HP, and restore any lost HP. Therefore, having perfectly cooked Curry on hand can be of immense use to any trainer.
There are over a hundred types of Curry, with possibly different effects for each type.
How to Cook Curry
You can camp and cook Curry with four other players and your Pokemon. While cooking the Curry, along with other ingredients, you will be able to choose a key ingredient which will be the determinant of the type of Curry.
Once you’ve added the ingredients, you will be able to perform certain actions/movements after a prompt; Stir the Curry, Fan the flame, etc. All of these actions will have different effects on the Taste Rating of the Curry that you are cooking.
It’s important to know that fanning the flame is an important task that can jeopardize the state of the curry if done improperly. You aim to create a large flame that quickly heats up the curry but doesn’t burn it. You must maintain the flame level, and you’ll know that you’re doing a good job when the pot begins to sparkle and Pokemon appear to celebrate your success.
If you go over the right flame level for a second or two, you won’t do any real damage (and you’ll still have a chance of attaining the Charizard rank) but anything over that will most assuredly burn your curry; so be very careful when cooking.
The same can be said when stirring the pot. You don’t want to overdo and cause the curry to spill out. Once again, you’ll know you’re doing a good job when the pot begins to sparkle.
The final process involved in the creation of curry is ‘putting your heart into it’. Taking the metaphor out of the equation, the actual process involves you waiting for the circle surrounding the curry to shrink and fit perfectly into the small, green area; press A right as the circle enters the green zone. Doing it prematurely or too late will result in a curry that doesn’t contain any of your ‘love’.
How to get Ingredients for Curry
When you are exploring the world of Pokemon Sword and Shield, the different areas will have things you can pick up, make sure you take any shiny items on the ground as they could be certain key ingredients you may need for some curry.
You can also shake berries from the tree, but beware to not over-shake the tree as that may lead to a battle with a wild Pokemon. Shake the tree only twice, if you lose to the Pokemon or run away, you will lose some berries.
Key Ingredients for a curry can also be very conveniently bought from certain NPCs in various areas. Make sure to buy out all curry ingredients from all NPCs whenever you have the money.
The Curry Dex is a list that has a list of Curry recipes and types that you can cook. All new recipes will be recorded in the Curry Dex with its Taste Rating.
As stated earlier, berries are an essential part of making Curry. However, depending on the actual rarity of the berry itself, if you use multiple rare berries to make one batch of curry, the effects of that curry will be astronomical.
Sort your berry list by type, with the rarer berries being at the bottom, so you know exactly where they all are
The rule for making different variations of curries is using different types of berries. The required berries for each type of Curry are:
- Spicy Curry: Figy, Pomeg, Qualot, Tamato, Occa.
- Sweet Curry: Pomeg, Qualot, Grepa.
- Bitter Curry: Rawst, Aguav, Pomeg, Ganlon, Apicot.
- Sour Curry: Aspear, Lapapa, Grepa, Yache, Apicot.
- Dry Curry: Chilan, Ganlon.
- Neutral Curry: Lum, Sitrus, Mago, Kelpsy.
- Different Flavors: Leppa
- Unique Flavor: Oran, Persim, Hondew
As you’ll see in the recipes below, to make a specific kind of curry requires you using a special ingredient, combined with the above-mentioned berries to either make it Spicy, Sweet, Bitter, Sour, or Dry.
For each unique recipe, 10 berries of a certain kind will need to be added into the mix to create the curry you so desire
Below are all the Pokemon Sword and Shield Curry Recipes and key ingredients that go into making these curries as well as the benefits you get from them.

Once you’re done cooking, you will have 1 of 5 rankings. These rankings determine whether your Curry is of exquisite quality or not. The ranking will also determine what kind of benefits your Pokemon will gain from consuming it. The rankings are as follows:
- Charizard Class (Gold): Restores HP, PP, and status conditions. Pokémon gains “a lot” of experience and get “quite friendly toward you.”
- Copperajah Class (Silver): Restores HP, PP, and status conditions. Pokémon gains “a lot” of experience and get “quite friendly toward you.”
- Milcery Class (Bronze):Restores HP and status conditions. Pokémon gains experience and get friendlier.
- Wobbuffet Class:Restores HP by half. Pokémon gains “a few” experience points and get friendlier.
- Koffing Class: Restores HP “a little bit.” Pokémon gains “a few” experience points and get friendlier.
Your Pokemon actually have preferences when it comes to Curry. So even if you have a perfectly good curry with a Charizard Ranking, your Pokemon may not benefit from it completely as it’s not to their exact tastes. Their tastes are dependent on their Nature, and the following table will show you the exactly what your Pokemon like and dislike.
When making curry, be mindful of your Pokemon’s nature and craft a curry that suits its tastes.
