Pokemon Sleep Cooking and Dish Recipes Full Guide

Pokemon Sleep recipes

Pokemon Sleep is slowly getting in the groove with plenty of new content like a brand new area to replace Snowdrop Tundra as the last one, and special events coming with new bonuses and rewards for all that are playing the mobile game/ app. Any player who has given the game a go would know that one of the most essential things about Pokemon Sleep is Dishes. Snorlax is the basis of the game, and the chonky monster loves to eat all kinds of food throughout the week to power up his strength which lands a better score and better Pokemon for players. This is why for players looking to take advantage of this mechanic, they need to keep in mind all the Dishes and Dish Recipes the game has and is adding with new content.

We’ve made a full guide on all players would need to know about Cooking Dishes in this article, with a full Recipe List also provided at the end to conveniently check which ingredients are in the game and which combinations of them get which kind of dish in Pokemon Sleep.

Pokemon Sleep Dishes:

There are two ways in Pokemon Sleep to increase your Snorlax’s Strength, either by giving it Berries which Pokemon that you select in your party regularly gather, and through cooking and feeding it Dishes that you make through ingredients. Berries have their own method within the game, but for dishes, it’s up to players to get them through Pokemon and then use them to cook up tasty food for Snorlax and for your party Pokemon.

There are three basic kinds of dishes inside the game, Curry, Salad and Desserts. The game automatically picks a kind of dish for a week when players start the game and join a new area.

Each kind of these three has different varieties within the game, and each one uses a different combination of ingredients. To give you the full picture, we need to talk about ingredients and how players can gather and use them to cook.

Pokemon Sleep Ingredients:

Ingredients in Pokemon Sleep are the special drops that Pokemon gather alongside berries. While berries directly get added to Snorlax’s basket as soon as you pick them up from a Pokemon, ingredients go to the player’s Ingredient Inventory.

A player has a fixed amount of Ingredient Inventory at the start of the game, but they can upgrade it to hold more Ingredients at one time, and with newer and higher ranking dishes needing a higher number of ingredients, it’s highly beneficial if players can upgrade it to hold more.

It should be noted that players also need to upgrade their Cooking Pot so that it can use more ingredients at one time, as that is the way to unlock higher-scoring dishes.

Ingredients come in different varieties and many different Pokemon get different Ingredients. Rarer kinds of Ingredients also have higher Base Power than common Ingredients. Pokemon can also have multiple Ingredients at one time if they reach a certain level and they have different Ingredients they can pick on their Profile page, below the kind of Berry they find. Players simply have to get the Pokemon on their main party and let them gather Ingredients automatically alongside berries. This is the main basic way to get Ingredients in Pokemon Sleep.

After players have a different variety of Ingredients, they can get to cooking them to make Dishes.

Pokemon Sleep Cooking:

Players can cook three times every day. The time for each meal is fixed at three different variations that are Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner which is the following:

  • Breakfast is between 6 AM to 11:59 AM every day local time.
  • Lunch is between 12 PM to 5:59 PM everyday local time.
  • Dinner is between 6 PM to the next day’s 5:59 PM everyday local time.

Players need to gather up ingredients and cook within these timeframes each day to cook most amount of dishes in the game in order to feed Snorlax more and get a higher Sleeping score. A player cannot change these timeframes and if one is missed, it can’t be made up for.

When Snorlax hasn’t been given a meal to eat at a specific timeframe, the meal time is shown right above Snorlax. Just simply need to click on Snorlax when it appears to start cooking. After they click on Snorlax, they go to pick Ingredients or use the Auto Cook function which uses random ingredients to cook up a dish.

Using this Auto Cook function is discouraged because it doesn’t allow players to use specific ingredients to get different kinds of dishes.

By picking a different combination of ingredients, players simply need to confirm and the cooking will automatically start. The dish will cook, and players will get a score on the dish based on the number of ingredients they put inside the cooking pot and whether there was an extra bonus or boost to the dish through its level number or not.

Snorlax is then served some tasty food, and his strength is directly increased and shown after he finishes eating. That’s it, that’s how the Dish Function works.

Dish Recipe Level Boost:

As we mentioned above, the total score of a Dish comes from two different things. The Dish Recipe Level Boost is a fixed boost that a specific dish gets when players cook it multiple times in their game. With every score of the dish, the Level bar fills up and the Dish Recipe gets to a higher level. On every higher level, the dish gets a percentage boost to its total score.

One way to take advantage of this Level boost is to cook the same kind of dish over and over, so its level is increased and the extra percentage boost is higher and directly added to the base score of the dish.

By combining a large number of ingredients to get a dish and by using the level boost, players can consistently get high-scoring dishes that will help them get more strength for Snorlax. Additionally, there is also a small chance of another bonus to the dish, through the Extra Tasty Bonus chance.

Extra Tasty Bonus:

The Extra Tasty Bonus is a random proc that players can sometimes get for their dishes when they cook them in Pokemon Sleep. When a dish finishes cooking, sometimes an exclamation mark appears above the pot and after the score gets set, it suddenly gets a massive boost and multiplies by an amount. This is called the Extra Tasty proc bonus in the game. Players can get this randomly sometimes on their dishes and if they have a high dish level and have used many ingredients, they can get a massive score if the proc happens.

Sunday Cooking and Cooking Pot Bonuses:

On Sundays, there is a special bonus to the number of ingredients the cooking pot can hold and the Extra Tasty Bonus proc also gets a boost.

So for the three timeframes for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner, players can use more ingredients to cook up dishes and they will also have a higher chance to procure the Extra Tasty Bonus. This is why players should always try to cook dishes on Sundays to get the final day’s high Snorlax Strength converted into a high-scoring Sleep Score just before concluding their Weekly Playthrough in the area.

Cooking dishes is a vital thing in Pokemon Sleep and shouldn’t be skipped, as it is one of the two ways to increase Snorlax’s Strength. More Snorlax Strength means a higher score and a higher score means a bigger variety of Pokemon appearing after a sleep cycle, so it is an essential way to get the most out of the mobile game.
