Pokemon Quest Ingredient Farming Locations - where to best find and farm every ingredient

Cooking is one of the driving forces in the latest mobile Pokemon offering Pokemon Quest, and while knowing the Pokemon Quest recipes will help you to catch them all, you also need to know where to find the various ingredients you need.

On this page, we're going to run down all of the Pokemon Quest Ingredients and where you should go to farm lots of them. 

Being able to effectively farm Pokemon Quest ingredients is vital - it'll let you cook more recipes, which in turn lets you catch better and higher level Pokemon. This, alongside Pokemon Evolution, will help you to fill out your Pokedex and get your hands on Pokemon with more powerful picks from the Pokemon Quest move list. Once you've stacked up with ingredients, you should consider getting more cooking pots so you can use them more efficiently. Anyway, let's get to it...

Pokemon Quest Ingredient Farming: the best levels for farming all cooking materials

Before we get going on listing the best places for ingredient farming in Pokemon Quest, you should first understand that what ingredients spawn based on their color. As such, we'll be listing what color ingredients spawn on what stage, and how often.

This'll help you to farm effectively - but before we get into that, here's the ingredient colors, in case you're unsure:

  • Apricorns: yellow
