How to start Request 23 'Getting Ahold of New Wares' in Pokémon Legends Arceus

As with the other general store expansion Requests in Pokémon Legends: Arceus, you need to make a certain amount of progress before they can be unlocked.

Once you finish main story mission 8 Arezu's Predicament and have unlocked the Crimson Mirelands location, head back into Jubilife Village.

Now talk to Choy at the general store, which is on the main street opposite Galaxy Hall, just turn left before the bridge and it's the first building. We've highlighted the store's location on the map and provided some images below.

Choy will ask you to get three stalks of Hearty Grains and bring them to Tao Hua, and you should now have Request 23 unlocked.

Where to find Hearty Grains in Pokémon Legends Arceus

Before we go about finding the Hearty Grains, it's worth checking the black item storage box to see if you already have three of them. If you do, skip ahead to find Tao Hua.

If you don't have any Hearty Grains, the easiest way to obtain them requires 600 Poké Dollars.

Go to Anvin at the Craftworks and buy three for 600 Poké Dollars after selecting 'crafting materials'. We've highlighted the craftworks location on the map below and provided some images.

Hearty Grains can also be picked up in the Crimson Mirelands, via a couple of different methods, which we'll outline below.

Fast travel to the Mirelands Camp location, head straight down to where the Golden Lowlands is marked on the map screen and you should spot some Hearty Grains coming out of the ground. In our experience they can be found on the edges of the small bodies of water.

You should obtain three Hearty Grains quite easily, but if not (or if you want more), you can head towards Gapejaw Bog on the map and throw a Pokémon at the haystacks as these sometimes drop Hearty Grains, among other useful items. Haystacks don't always drop Hearty Grains however, so keep that in mind.

Our Pokémon Legends Arceus walkthrough will help you pick a starter Pokémon and win the Kleavor boss fight. You’re also tasked with filling the Hisui Pokédex by obtaining new evolutions like Kleavor by evolving Scyther, Wyrdeer by evolving Stantler, Sneasler by evolving Hisui Sneasel and Overquil by evolving Hisui Qwilfish. There’s a host of new evolution methods, including ones for the Eevee evolutions. Take the time to complete Requests too, such as The Sea’s Legend, Wurmple’s Evolved! and finding the Wisp locations. Don’t forget to track down every Unown location too.

Completing Request 23 and Getting Ahold of New Wares rewards

Now head back to Jubilife Village, if you have the Request activated you should be able to follow the markers on screen to find Tao Hua, but here's a quick guide either way.

Once in Galaxy Hall turn right and pass the stairs going up one floor, go down the stairs placed underneath and go through the first door on your right.

Once you've talked to Tao Hua, go back to Choy at the general store!

For completing the quest, you'll be able to buy six new items at the general store, which we've listed below:

  • Heavy Ball
  • Feather Ball
  • Super Potion
  • Smoke Bomb
  • Mushroom Cake
  • Honey Cake

Once you've turned in this quest, depending where you are in the main story you may receive Request 43 for even more items in the general store, our guide to complete that Request can be found here.
