Respawn After Max Raid Battles
Once you pick up a Max Mushroom, it will disappear. However, more mushrooms will spawn after you complete a certain number of Max Raid Battles. We're not sure the exact number yet, so your best bet is just to do as many as you can and check for respawns!Check Out Max Raid Battles Here!

Efficient Mushroom Farming Route
|①||Check Brawlers' Cave|
|②||Check the Warm-Up Tunnel|
|③||Check the Courageous Cavern|
|④||Explore the Forest of Focus|
Note that even if you do several Max Raid Battles, your mushrooms might not respawn. If this happens, just keep trying over and over.
Prioritize Brawlers' Cave and Warm-Up Tunnel
Since Brawlers' Cave and Warm-Up Tunnel are so close to each other, it's worth checking both of them first. You can fly to the Tower of Darkness, so this should be your starting point.
Courageous Caverns -> Forest of Focus
After you've done the first two, head to Courageous Caverns. You can fly to the Tower of Water and get there pretty easily. Afterward, save the Forest of Focus for last, as it has the most area you need to cover.
