One little thing that you might not think about getting Pokémon Scarlet and Violet is called Mirror Herb. This is a held item that you can give to your Pokémon, and you can usually think of many other held items that can be used to evolve a Pokémon. However, Mirror Herb is unique and makes it easy for you to teach Pokémon egg moves without hatching them from eggs. Here’s what you need to know about where to get the Mirror Herb in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
How to get Mirror Herb in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet
You can pick up the Mirror Herb in some places. This is a handy item that you can get at the Delibird Presents store. There are three cities you can visit to find a Delibird Presents store. However, only one of them has a Mirror Herb. You can find it in Cascarrafa City, where you can get the Water-type Gym Badge from Kufo. The store will use it for 30,000. You can choose to pay for it with money, or you can choose to use League Points (LP), which is the recurring currency for anyone who regularly takes part in Tera Raid battles.

Once you have it, give it to the Pokémon you want to teach an Egg move to, and then find another Pokémon that can teach the Pokémon Egg move. You must make sure that the Pokémon holding the Mirror Herb has a free move slot in their list. Once they do, make a Picnic, and let the Pokémon play. Eventually, after a minute or two of waiting, the Pokémon holding the Mirror Herb will receive the Egg move you want them to learn from other Pokémon, and you can use it freely.
For example, we were able to teach our Eevee the Fighting-type move Double Kick from Mudbray by having them attend a Picnic, with Eevee holding a Mirror Herb. You can only use it once per Pokémon, though.
This is faster than waiting for a Pokémon Egg to hatch and the Pokémon that hatches to learn the Egg Move, especially if the Pokémon already has the stats you want.
