How To Get Max Mushrooms

Found In Forest Of Focus During Story

You can get Max Mushroom in Forest of Focus. Look for shiny large mushroom.

Get Some During The Story

Max Mushroom

By simply progressing through the story you'll get 3 Max Mushrooms. It's not necessary to use these to clear the story, so you might as well save them up.

After clearing the Isle of Armor story, more Max Mushrooms will start to grow. The place they spawn within a given subzone is not fixed, so make sure to look through the entire zone thoroughly!

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!

Mushrooms spawn randomly all over the Forest of Focus. The above pictures are two locations we found them, but you'll probably have to explore every nook and cranny of the area.

Efficient Mushroom Farming Route

Check Brawlers' Cave
Check the Warm-Up Tunnel
Check the Courageous Cavern
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.

A Somewhat Rare Item

Max Mushrooms are somewhat hard to find after clearing the story. They respawn over time and there aren't very many of them, so if you happen to see one on the field, immediately pick it up!
