Where to find the Pokemon Sword and Shield Lost Minccino Location

While the kids tell you their Minccino will be somewhere with lots of water, you’ll be looking for a fountain. Thankfully, there is a fountain right next to Motostoke Stadium. To find the Pokemon Sword and Shield lost Minccino location, simply follow these steps:

  • Head to Motostoke Stadium.
  • Walk past its entrance, towards the trees to the left.
  • Keep walking left through the trees until you spot a fountain adorned with a Poke Ball.
  • After hearing the “Mworp!” sound, stand next to the fountain and whistle.

This fountain is where the missing Minccino is hiding. After whistling, the Minccino will appear from behind the fountain and head back to its owner. When you return to the children and speak with them, you will receive a bottle of Throat Spray as your reward. Throat Sprays raise your Special Attack stat when a Pokemon uses a sound-based move.
