Picnics (Japanese: ピクニック Picnic) are a feature in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet that allow the player to care for their Pokémon in various ways. It is similar to Pokémon-Amie, Pokémon Refresh, and Pokémon Camp, but picnics also introduce the option for players to make sandwiches, visit other player's picnics via the Union Circle, and breed Pokémon to produce Eggs.

Picnics can be accessed from the menu except for when the player is on water or a steep slope, riding a Pokémon, in a city, town, or Area Zero, too close to a non-player character, or if there is not enough room.



Pokémon Wash

Over time, Pokémon can get dirty from battling or from harsh weather. The player's KoraidonS/MiraidonV can also become dirty while riding them. A player can wash their Pokémon by approaching them during a picnic. Through Pokémon Wash—coined by Saguaro—the player can scrub their Pokémon with a soapy Mareep sponge and then rinse them off. This can restore the Pokémon's HP, cure status conditions, and raise the Pokémon's friendship and experience. Some Pokémon have certain parts of their bodies that they do not like getting scrubbed or rinsed, while some Pokémon do not like being cleaned at all.

Main article: Pokémon breeding

Picnics are used for breeding in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, replacing the Pokémon Day Care and Pokémon Nursery from previous games. When the player has two Pokémon in the party that can breed, an Egg will occasionally appear in the picnic basket found at one end of the picnic table. Eating a sandwich that grants Egg Power will increase the likelihood of finding Eggs in the picnic basket. Unwanted Eggs can be donated instead of being added to the player's party or sent to a Box.
