Gigantamax Machamp, Gengar, and Snorlax appear in Pokémon Sword and Shield
Pokémon Sword and Shield players can now battle with Gigantamax Machamp, Gengar, and Snorlax in Max Raid Battles.
All three Pokémon will only be appearing in Max Raid Battles until March 25th at 4:59 p.m. PT.
“To challenge these Pokémon in a Max Raid Battle, you’ll need to connect your Nintendo Switch system to the internet,” a post on the official Pokémon website adds. “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 extremely rare cases, a Gigantamax Pokémon can appear instead of a Dynamax Pokémon.”
Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield are available now on Nintendo Switch.
