It can be obtained by completing the quest "reaserch and destroy". to complete the quest you need to defeat Elusid (grotto boss) as fast as you can.

Dragon Quest XI[]

The Red Orb started out as a royal treasure of Heliodor before it was stolen by Erik about one year prior to the events of the game. Before the Hero and Erik return to Cobblestone, they visit Downtown Heliodor to take the orb back from where it had been stashed. When they discover that the orb is absent from the stash, they must track down Erik's former partner in crime, Derk, who tells them that it has been taken to the Kingsbarrow. The orb is regained there. Later on, when the Hero and his party discover that it is one of the six orbs needed to reach Yggdrasil, Erik gives the Red Orb to the Hero.

Following the fall of Yggdrasil, the Red Orb ends up in the possession of the Spectral Sentinel Alizarin, who uses it to surround himself with an impenetrable barrier, which is later dispelled by the powers of the Luminary. When Alizarin is defeated, the Hero regains the Red Orb.
