Where to find the Lucky Egg in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

Let's level up your Pokémon faster.

The Lucky Egg is an item that lets Pokémon receive more EXP in battle even if they weren’t the Pokémon that defeated your opponent. And while the bonus EXP doesn’t generate when you send it out with the game’s Let’s Go! feature, it’s still a useful item that can help you level up a constantly rotating team. Here’s where to find a Lucky Egg in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet.

There’s usually one Lucky Egg in each Pokémon game. In Pokémon Scarlet & Violet, this Lucky Egg is automatically given to you right before your sixth gym battle. You can thank Professor Jacq for that!

But even with a Lucky Egg, leveling up your Pokémon can still take a lot of time and effort. If you’ve defeated all eight gym leaders, you can actually earn a ton of EXP. Candies from five-star Tera Raids. After you’ve become a Champion, you will eventually have access to six-star Tera Raids, which drop more and larger EXP. Candies as rewards.

How much EXP does my Pokémon get per candy?

  • EXP. Candy XS: 100 EXP
  • EXP. Candy S: 800 EXP
  • EXP. Candy M: 3,000 EXP
  • EXP. Candy L: 10,000 EXP
  • EXP. Candy XL: 30,000 EXP

Five-and-six-star Tera Raids will drop a lot of EXP. Candy L and EXP. Candy XL. If the Tera Crystal you’re observing isn’t of these star ratings, skip them and search for another one. Tera Crystals reset every new day in real life, so be sure to check them daily.

  1. Hey! Your typing breakdown is a bit off, which skews them away from being equal.

    Miraidon is NOT strong against steel.

    Koraidon IS strong against steel, and additionally its fighting typing also gives it coverage against ice (2x damage) dragon’s main weakness, giving it a net change of 3 coverages over Miraidon from what is listed in exchange for 1 double weakness vs 1 double resistance.

    1. Hey Anglefish, appreciate your comment! Miraidon is, at the very least, resistant to Steel-type attacks due to its Electric typing. However, it is also true that Koraidon is arguably better to use against Steel-types, as Fighting-type moves are super effective against them. Koraidon will still take a normal % of damage against Steel-type attacks since it is Fighting/Dragon.

      The chart is purely based on type effectiveness against both of them. I will edit the piece to clarify this and avoid confusion.
