Where to Find Miniccino for Motostoke Boy in Pokemon Sword & Shield – Mworp Location?

To find the Miniccino for the Motostoke Boy in Pokemon Sword & Shield, you’ll have to find a body of water in Motostoke and whistle by it. You’ll know that you’re in the right place when you hear “Mworp.” As the kid tells you, there isn’t a lot of water in Motostoke. However, there is one, and closer than you think. From where you find the boy, head to the right. Pass the brick building with the green sign. In the courtyard of the next building, you’ll see a statue of a Pokeball sticking above the wall.

Enter the courtyard and head left, towards the Pokeball statue. As it turns out, that statue is actually a part of a fountain. When you approach the fountain, you’ll see a big old “Mworp” pop up on the screen. That’s how you know you’re at the right place. Come close to the fountain and whistle by pressing the left stick. The Minccino will appear for a split second, and then go back to the boy. So, that’s exactly what you should do as well to get your reward.

Talk to the boy, and you’ll receive a bottle of Throat Spray for your troubles. The Throat Spray raises Sp. Atk when a Pokemon uses a sound-based move. Whether or not you will get any use out of the item depends on whether you use sound-based moves at all. But, hey, you made a kid happy by returning his Pokemon, you did a good deed.
