Pokemon Sword and Shield Currydex: How to unlock all the curry recipes

(Image credit: Nintendo)

It turns out there are 151 curries that make up the Pokemon Sword and Shield currydex, and although some might be more questionable than others in terms of taste and ingredients, your Pokemon will love them. They will help you build a bond with your Pokemon, heal their wounds, revive them when they've fainted, and are just really good fun to discover. To help you along though, here are all the Pokemon Sword and Shield curry recipes we've mixed up so far, with the aim of helping you complete your Pokemon Sword and Shield currydex. Get stirring!

To make a curry you'll need to combine a key ingredient with one or more type of berry. The key ingredient sets the type of curry you'll make - like sausages to make a sausage curry, or a pungent root to make a herb medley curry - while the berries will adjust the flavour - ranging from spicy to dry, and sweet to bitter. For example, if you wanted to make a spicy salad curry, you'd need one salad mix as your key ingredient, and at least one - preferably multiple - spicy berry like a Pomeg or a Tamato berry. 

You can get curry ingredients from the following locations:
- Vendors around the Wild Area (check out our Pokemon Sword and Shield Wild Area guide for their locations)
- Shaking berries from trees
- Glowing spots on the floor across Galar
- Talking to other trainers in the Wild Area

How to make a perfect curry

(Image credit: Nintendo)

Now here's where things get a little more complicated, because there's a number of steps to follow in order to make the perfect curry. Making one is done in four stages:

1. Picking the ingredients
This part is fairly simple. Pick your ingredients following the table above and you'll be able to make any curry you want. Don't have the required berries? Head off and shake some trees until you get the ones you need!


2. Fanning the flames
Now you're cooking. You need to fan the flames, but don't press A as quickly as you can, because that will cause the flame to get too big and burn your curry. Instead, you want to create a large flame, then slow down your fanning to simply maintain the size. When there's sparkles and your Pokemon get excited, you'll know you're doing a good job.


3. Stirring the pot
Stirring the pot is along the same lines. Stirring too quickly will cause you to spill some curry, and you'll know you've got the right pace when you see sparkles.


4. Adding your heart
Finally, you need to add some love to the curry. When the circle starts closing in, you'll see two green rings. You want to try and get the love through the inner green ring in order to reach the top class of curry.

Here are the five quality tiers for your curries:

1. Charizard Class (Gold): Restores HP, PP, and status conditions. Pokemon get "quite friendly" towards you and earn "a lot" of XP.
2. Copperajah Class (Silver): Restores HP, PP, and status conditions. Pokemon get "quite friendly" towards you and earn "a lot" of XP.
3. Milcery Class (Bronze): Restores HP, PP, and status conditions. Pokemon get friendlier towards you and gain XP.
4. Wobbuffet Class: Restores HP by half. Pokemon get friendlier towards you and gain XP.
5. Koffing Class: Restores a "little bit" of HP. Pokemon get friendlier towards you and gain XP.

Finally, for some aesthetic differences, the size of your curry will change depending on the Pokemon at the front of your party. For example, if you have a Joltik first, your curry will be absolutely miniscule and fit on a single spoon. Rocking a Wailord? You'll create enough curry to fill its enormous belly and then some. There's three sizes in total, and to completely fill your currydex, you'll need to create each curry in each size. Good luck!
