A new Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield Max Raid Battle event has just began with Sableye, Dusknoir, Zoroark, Corviknight, and Thievul. It’s being held as a tie in with Halloween.

There’s no real gimmick for this particular event. However, if you’re lucky enough, a Shiny Zoroark may appear.

For those looking to participate in the Max Raid Battle event for Pokemon Sword and Shield featuring Zoroark and more, start up by connecting a Switch system to the internet. Once a pillar of light appears from a Pokemon Den in the Wild Area, walk up to it and interact to kick off a Max Raid Battle.

Note that the new event will be live in game until October 31 4:59 PM PT / 7:59 PM ET. It does not affect the Pokemon encountered within Dynamax Adventures.

Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield, which first released in November 2019, can be picked up for Switch either physically or digitally. You can get a look at previous Max Raid Battle events as well as other news pertaining to the game by visiting a roundup of our previous coverage here.
