For you to be able to breed in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet, you just need to set up a Picnic using the game’s menu, and you will be able to get the process up and running almost immediately.

You will need to make sure that you have either a Male and Female Pokemon in the same applicable Egg Group as this is how it will create a Pokemon Egg. Another way is to have a Pokemon that is eligible for breeding, along with a Ditto, and either scenario will enable you to breed Pokemon.
