When you first learn about picnics, you get 10 nice red picks to use with your sandwiches, but you should buy some toothpicks at bakeries around Paldea, so you don’t run out. Bakeries in the following cities have toothpicks for sale:

  • Cascaraffa
  • Mesagoza
  • Alfornada
  • Cortondo
  • Levincia
  • Artazon
  • Porto Marinada

There’s a huge variety of toothpicks (see the above screenshot), and they can affect your sandwiches differently. Read the descriptions carefully before using toothpicks, so you don’t inadvertently give yourself the wrong Meal Power. If you don’t know what sandwich you want to make, then feel free to experiment – remember, you don’t actually have to eat them.

If you’re following standard sandwich recipes, then the toothpick doesn’t make much of a difference. I made two pickle sandwiches, one with a Red Pick and one with a Silver Pick, and got the exact same meal powers. Silver Picks are the cheapest, so if you need money for healing items and Pokeballs, just go with those.
