After winning a Max Raid Battle, Max Mushrooms have a chance of appearing in one of the four areas they are found – the Warm-Up Tunnel, Forest of Focus, Brawlers' Cave, or the Courageous Cavern. The more Raid Battles you complete, the more Max Mushrooms will appear, so completing several raid battles and then walking around to find the mushrooms that spawned is the most efficient way.
