Our Pokemon Sword & Shield Cooking Guide walks you through all of the currently known recipes, ingredients, and takes a look at how you'll be able to cook up a storm! The new game features the ability to camp with your Pokemon, and one of the things you can do is cook up some curry in a pot. It's unclear at the moment what the food will do for you, but speculation is that it will give you certain buffs to your Pokemon.

Fan the Flames
