Isn’t the only way to get Iron Nuggets and Clay through hitting or smashing rocks in New Horizons?  I’m lacking a lot of rocks and want to know if that’s the only way to obtain that crafting material?

Ive found rocks by fishing. Ive also had luck receiving both from your island characters randomly. If you visit the mystery islands there’s usually quite a few loose rocks laying around. Those islands always have a lot of rocks to smash.

You go to the machine in Nooks tent and you go to the Nooks Miles option. You purchase and island get away ticket for 2,000 Nook Miles. Then you go to the airport and take the Mystery island tour. They fly you to a mystery island. Every time you take that trip its a different island. Before you go make sure you take all of your tools and empty pockets. There’s a lot to bring back with you.

^ Correct! Also, I've gotten some clay from hitting balloons with my slingshot. Not sure about iron nuggets, though.

" I've gotten some clay from hitting balloons with my slingshot. Not sure about iron nuggets, though."
I can confirm you can get iron nuggets from a balloon. But yes, using your Nook Mile Ticket to generate an island and farm the rocks is by far the easiest way to get a lot of iron very quickly.

Another question is the pocket inventory kind of sucks right now.  I’m assuming there’s a way to have more pocket room am I correct?

Make sure you don't eat fruit before you hit the rocks! I kept eating fruit to smash them but I didn't know I was getting less resources than if I had not eaten any.

Also, if you do eat a fruit and didn't mean to, you can get rid of the rock smashing powers by sitting on a toilet! =)

kodfod01 can you really?

Also, the mystery islands are only good if you have luck on your side. I have been 6 or 7 times and got the same native fruit and flowers over and over. No tarantulas and little ore.

ghriahim yeah, we did it by accident, was a surprise to us!

We also have had the same luck, we get tulips and oranges on every island, no special islands yet... and we used a LOT of tickets.....

kodfod01 oh wow I ordered a toilet today so I'll try it tomorrow. And yes, I've been cursed with oranges too since the New Leaf release. Sending RNGesus' light your way.

ghirahim We were thinking of resetting to not have oranges, but against my best protest, we kept the original RNG...

But yeah our islands have provided us with loads of iron nuggets and clay, i'm sitting on 4+ stacks of iron nuggets in my house storage and plenty of clay..... but then again I have done a lot of random islands

kodfod01 Lucky! I heard someone say that people should save up for Miles for something better that's coming so admittedly I've been hoarding them.
