What You Need to Know:
- More good news coming straight from the Pokémon source, as many Gigantamax forms can now be discovered in Pokémon Sword and Shield, via Max Raid Battles!
- According to the official Pokémon website, Pokémon Sword players are more likely to encounter Gigantamax Coalossal and Gigantamax Flapple in Max Raid Battles, while Pokémon Shield players are more likely to encounter Gigantamax Lapras and Gigantamax Appletun.
- To encounter these Pokémon in a Max Raid Battle, you'll need to connect your Nintendo Switch system to the internet. Then, whenever you see a pillar of light shining from a Pokémon Den in the Wild Area, you can walk up to the Pokémon Den and interact with it to start a Max Raid Battle with a Dynamax Pokémon. In rare cases, one of these Gigantamax Pokémon can appear instead of a Dynamax Pokémon.
