Vincent Lau

This is a guide for Request 99: “Tricky Treat Strategy” in the “Daybreak” DLC for Pokémon Legends: Arceus (PLA).

After completing Request 98, you can receive this request from Mai, who’s standing next to the entrance of Galaxy Hall in Jubilife Village.

1. Go to the Secret Hollow with the Requested Items

For this rather unusual request, you need to bring 10 Mushroom Cakes to Mai at the designated location.

How to Get Mushroom Cakes

There are a couple of ways to obtain Mushroom Cakes.

  1. After completing Request 6, you can craft them using 1 Springy Mushroom and 1 Cake-Lure Base. Springy Mushrooms can be gathered from the Obsidian Fieldlands, while Cake-Lure Base can be purchased from the general store. You can also buy both from the Craftworks.
  2. After completing Request 23 you can directly purchase Mushroom Cakes from the general store.
  3. You can randomly obtain them by breaking boxes at Cobalt Coastlands and Coronet Highlands.

Where to Find the Secret Hollow

The Secret Hollow is located a short distance north from the Icepeak Camp in Alabaster Icelands, on the other side of the river. You’ll need to send out a Pokémon to destroy the boulders blocking the entrance.

Once you’re inside the cave, press Joy-Con-ButtonA-Filled near the center of the cave to wait for Mai. Make sure the cakes are in your satchel.

2. Return to Jubilife Village

After handing Mai the cakes, make your way back to the village.

When you reach the nearest camp, Lian will come over with some confusing information. He’ll also give you 30 Aguav Berries. Sweet! As a reminder, you can give these to Mai to reveal all of the unknown Pokémon during a Massive Mass Outbreak.

Back at the village, speak to Mai who’s standing by the Front Gate to finish this request.

Reward for Request 99

Star Pieces have no use, except for selling.

You’ll receive the following items:

  • Star Piece x3
  • Iron Chunk x30
