Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield have just kicked off a new Max Raid Battle event, which is all about Rowlet, Litten, and Popplio from Alola.

The starters of Pokemon Sun and Moon are all here. While the event is active, they will be showing up in Pokemon Dens throughout the Wild Area of Galar, the Isle of Armor and the Crown Tundra. Other than that, there aren’t any gimmicks here. It’s just a new opportunity to encounter and catch the starters of the 3DS titles.

The event with Rowlet, Litten, and Popplio in Pokemon Sword and Shield can be joined by connecting a Switch system to the internet. Then when a pillar of light shines from a Pokemon Den in the Wild Area, walk up to it and interact to kick off a Max Raid Battle.

Today’s event will be up and running until October 3 at 4:59 PM PT / 7:59 PM ET. Note that this does not affect the Pokemon encountered within Dynamax Adventures.

Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield can both be purchased on Switch now. For a look at all of the prior Max Raid Battle events and other news about the game, check out our previous coverage here.
