Pokémon Scarlet and Violet may have an amount of issues that many may find annoying, but if I have to be honest, I do have something very special in common with the game. You see, eating food and making sandwiches is a big part of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, and so they for me, so I can’t hate this game even if I wanted to. You see, food and sandwiches will give you a specific boost or effect such as increasing the likelihood of encountering a specific type of Pokémon, or finding Eggs in your basket or increasing rewards from Tera Raids. Here are all Meal Power Effects in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet.
