In this quest, players will be tracking Moana’s adorable pet pig, Pua.

To complete the quest, players will have to locate Pua’s steps across various locations within the Valley.

Keep in mind that, to unlock this quest, you will need to level-up Moana’s friendship quickly.

Also, here’s a fun fact: Pua means ‘flower’ in Hawaiian. 

In this guide, I’ll guide you on how to complete the ‘Search for Pua’ quest, and showcase all locations that you’ll need to visit to find him.

Track Pua in the Meadow

The first step to track Pua is to locate his footsteps in the Meadow. Specifically, Pua’s steps can be found in the middle of the meadow, near the pond towards the beach stairs. They are also next to Wall-E’s garden.

Talk to Moana after locating the footsteps, and select the ‘…finding something to eat’ option. This will unlock the second part of the quest, where you need to track Pua near the restaurant.

After that, talk to Moana again. Make sure to select the option ‘The Forest!’, since that’s where Pua has headed.

Of course, the forest translates to the nearby biome, the Forest of Valor. If you haven’t been there yet, check out our guide on how to unlock the Forest of Valor in Disney Dreamlight Valley.
