Pokémon Quest tips and tricks, here are the best

When playing Pokémon Quest for the first time, a short tutorial will help you familiarize yourself with the basics of the game. Befriend Pokémon, take on expeditions to fight wild Pokémon, and prepare delicious meals in your base camp to attract as many Pokémon as possible to improve your team even more.

  • Download Pokémon Quest from the Play Store

Your Pokémon collection can be upgraded and evolved, of course, but we'll get to that in a bit. First, here's how to play to get the most out of the game.

In this guide you will find:

  • Battle tactics.
  • Guide to the kitchen.
  • How to improve your Pokémon.

Pokémon Quest Cheats Battle tactics

Manual versus autoplay: when to hit and run. It helps to pay attention to the battles. Pokémon Quest has an auto-play feature which can be great when you need to perform a lot of easy expeditions, but manually controlling your Pokémon often leads to better results.

Manual mode includes the "Scatter" button, which sends your Pokémon in different directions. This can be crucial for survival against the bosses' powerful area effect attacks and allows your Pokémon to recover.

If the expedition includes self-destructing Pokémon like Koffing and Voltorb, keep an eye out for these Pokémon and manually shoot your team before they explode to avoid friendly fire. During the tough boss battles, switch to manual mode because many bosses are more vulnerable to specific moves than others, and the game is optimized if you pick the right moves automatically.

Each team needs a tank. Defense is a vital role in any effective team. Your team can have 3 Pokémon, and one of them should be the attacker or defender. Your tank should be a defensive Pokémon with high HP on your team. This is the Pokémon you should endanger to take hits from the enemy without falling, allowing your more fragile Pokémon with better attacks to hit.

A tough Pokémon like Onix or Golem with Harden is a big tank. Make sure you give your tank plenty of shared stones so your entire team can benefit from them. With a dedicated tank on your team, you should be able to take on even the toughest boss fights.

The other members of your team should consist of a damage-dealer with high attack stats and a support Pokémon with a special ability (such as Confuse) to destroy your opponents. MMORPG players will likely be familiar with these roles.

Know the battlefield. Unlike traditional Pokémon games, Weakness types do not take effect in Pokémon Quest. For example, your fire types will no longer be weak against water types. But some areas of Tumblecube Island power up certain types of Pokémon as they fight on that terrain. So if you find that the area you are exploring activates fire types, consider your own expedition, even if they are not normally part of your team A.

Cheats Pokémon Quest cooking guide

Leave your old-school Pokéballs at home, because cooking skills are more important than a good throwing arm here on Timecube Island. The ingredients for cooking are won in expeditions and you won't know many recipes at first, although you can get lucky and discover them by combining random ingredients in the pot.

Different Pokémon have different tastes. Some dishes attract certain types of Pokémon; for example the plate "Hot Pot a la Cube" attracts Pokémon of the fire type, while "Get Swole Syrup a la Cube" attracts Pokémon of the fighting type.

Understanding the quantities of the ingredients. Just like with real-life recipes, weights and measures are important. Pay attention to a recipe description to know many ingredients to use. It may seem vague, but descriptions like "a lot" or "a little" actually refer to precise amounts! Here is the translation from English:

  • “A whole lot” = 4 slots
  • “A lot” = 3 slots
  • “Some” = 2 slots
  • “Un po '” = 1 slot

Pokémon Quest Cheats to improve your Pokémon


Pokémon will gain experience and levels during expeditions, but you can also have them train by another Pokémon to get more EXP. The Trainer Pokémon is always sacrificed in this process, so you basically discard unwanted Pokémon to upgrade your favorites.

When you train to get more EXP or change a move, related Pokémon train the best teachers - always use the same Pokémon species, Pokémon family, or Pokémon type for the best result

If there is a move you want your Pokémon to be able to learn at a lower evolution level, be sure to change it before it evolves. A final form of evolution is actually much more difficult to teach than new moves.

Bonus bingo

Bingo bonuses are activated when three Power Stones in a row line up. Each Pokémon has three bingo bonuses and each of these can be one of three. Before choosing to develop a Pokémon, check out its bingo bonus, as they can completely change the way that particular Pokémon plays. For example, one of Snorlax's Bingo bonuses gives it an attack of +550, instantly making it one of the best Pokémon in the entire game.
