Despite the Dragon Balls getting introduced early on into the game, players won’t actually be able to find and use them for themselves until the second intermission. Between story points are when the Dragon Balls can be found in the world. Their locations vary, but can be quickly identified by going to the World Map and looking for an orange ball symbol next to each place name.
