How to breed Pokemon in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet
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.
Just kill some time once the setup has begun, and eventually, you can check the basket on the table, and it will inform you that an Egg has been created.
How to speed up breeding with sandwiches in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet
One of the new additions to the breeding mechanic is that you can cook up some tasty sandwiches for the Picnic party and it will speed up the time it takes to create Eggs.
You’ll need ingredients from Paldea’s Mesagoza place of interest, and we’d whole-heartedly recommend you concoct a Great Peanut Butter Sandwich as it will give you the best chance of reducing the egg-making time.
These are the ingredients you will need to make one:

How to hatch an Egg in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet
With an Egg in your possession, it’s time to hatch it. In order to do that, Pokemon Scarlet & Violet players need to get their steps in and move around.
Just like in previous Pokemon games, it’s all about stepping, running, and generally covering ground to make the Egg hatch. After a while, you’ll get a prompt telling you that it’s time for the Egg to hatch and give you a new Pokemon.
That wraps up all things concerning Pokemon Scarlet & Violet’s breeding system, and if you want even more guides for the game, we have plenty more to check out:
