Max Honey

Max Honey is useful if you somehow obtain another Urshifu. Or you can use it like a Max Revive.

The Pokémon dens on this island are unique in that you have an extremely high chance of a "Combee" IconCombee or "Vespiquen" IconVespiquen raid; winning these raids may earn you a slab of Max Honey. Back at the dojo kitchen, Max Honey can be combined with Max Mushrooms to create Max Soup for "Urshifu" IconUrshifu, allowing it to Gigantamax.
