How to breed Pokemon in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet

To breed Pokemon in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, you need to first catch a Ditto in Medali.

After you’ve caught a Ditto, buy a “Compote du Fils” from “Gastronomie En Famille”.

Lastly, set up a Picnic and wait for your Pokemon to breed and egg(s) to spawn in the basket.

How to breed Pokemon (with Ditto):

  1. Catch a Ditto in Medali West.
  2. Buy a “Compote du Fils” from “Gastronomie En Famille” in Medali West (optional).
  3. Set up a Picnic and wait for your Pokemon to breed.
  4. Check the basket for egg(s).

If you don’t want to catch a Ditto, you need to set up a Picnic with Pokemon who belong in the same egg group and have opposite genders.

For example, a Dragonite (male and water 1) can breed with a Toxapex (female and water 1).

Although it’s optional, the “Compote du Fils” is a dish that has a level 2 egg power, which helps you to get eggs faster.

How to breed Pokemon (without Ditto):

  • Buy a “Compote du Fils” from “Gastronomie En Famille” in Medali West (optional).
  • Set up a Picnic.
  • Two Pokemon need to belong in the same egg group and have opposite genders (one male and one female).
  • Wait for your Pokemon to breed and check the basket for egg(s).
