Academy Special All-type Meal Location & Price

In addition to making your shiny sandwich by hand in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet, Game Freak added a meal that can be purchased at Blueberry Academy (Indigo Disk DLC) that grants the player Sparkling Power 1 for all types. This only raises your odds of finding a shiny Pokemon to 1/2048 by itself, but it’s fairly cheap and only costs a few Blueberry Points.

The Academy Special can be purchased from the Blueberry Academy Cafeteria by talking to the chef. The meal will cost you 150 BP, and the effects last for 30 minutes.
