Pokemon Sword/Shield

Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield have shifted the latest Max Raid Battle event, which puts the spotlight on a couple of Gigantamax Pokemon and more.

The Bug-type Pokemon Butterfree, Shuckle, and Ninjask will appear more frequently in Dens. The same goes for the Poison-type creatures Vileplume, Toxicroak, and Garbodor. You’ll also have a greater chance of encountering Gigantamax Butterfree and Gigantamax Garbodor.

To participate in this new event, connect your Switch system to the internet. After this, when you see a pillar of light shining from a Pokemon Den in the Wild Area, walk up to it and interact to kick off a Max Raid Battle.

You can partake in the new Pokemon Sword/Shield event through November 30 at 3:59 PM PT / 6:59 PM ET.
