In Pokémon Quest, it’s important to know how to get Mystical Shells as they’re a key component in the Ambrosia of Legends a la Cube recipe. To get Mystical Shells, a player must first progress to a minimum level of 12-1 in Pokémon Quest.

Mystical Shells aren’t attainable during the early stages of the game and only become available after a player reaches level 12-1. Once you reach level 12-1 in Pokémon Quest, you’ll have the ability to encounter Legendary Pokémon while on expeditions.

Defeat these Legendary Pokémon and you have a chance to acquire a Mystical Shell as a drop. It’s worth noting that Mystical Shells will only drop from Legendary Pokémon encounters, meaning players will need to prioritize getting themselves up to level 12-1. Then, players will need to farm expeditions in search of Legendary Pokémon in order to get Mystical Shells (from Legendary Pokémon drops).

It’s a shame that Legendary Pokémon encounters are the only way to get Mystical Shells in Pokémon Quest. Although, if it were easy to cook up the Ambrosia of Legends a la Cube recipe, it wouldn’t be nearly as exciting to lure in Legendary and Mythical Pokémon.
