New Pokemon Sword & Shield Max Raid Event Now Live

Pokemon Sword and Shield‘s Gigantamax event has ended, but a new event is now underway in the games. For a limited time, some of the most popular Pokemon in competitive battling will be featured in Max Raids, and you’re guaranteed to get some great TRs for defeating them.

Throughout the event, Pokemon like Tyranitar, Dragapult, Togekiss, Whimsicott, Excadrill, and their pre-evolved forms will appear much more frequently in Max Raids in both titles. On top of that, you’ll also be able to encounter the Heat and Wash forms of Rotom.
