Pikachu, Raichu, Alolan Raichu, and Pichu are now appearing more frequently in Max Raid Battles for Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield. If you’re lucky enough, you may encounter a Shiny Pikachu.

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.

The new Max Raid Battle event featuring Pikachu lasts until August 9 at 4:59 PM PT / 7:59 PM ET.
