Pokémon Sword and Shield players can now participate in the first Gigantamax event with Pokémon Butterfree.
From now until January 2020, you are most likely to find Gigantamax Butterfree in Pokemon sword and shield Max Raid Battles.
During this same period in Pokemon Sword, you are also more likely to meet Gigantamax Drednaw. If you play Pokemon shield you are also more likely to come across Gigantamax Corviknight.
Other Gigantamax Pokémon might appear more frequently than usual, so be sure to take part in Max Raid Battles.
In Max Raid Battles, you and three other Trainers team up to take on a wild Dynamax Pokémon. In rare cases, Gigantamax Pokémon may appear instead, although the chance is very small. But, some Gigantamax Pokémon become more common during specific periods of time, like now.
Nintendo said that the Gigantamax Pokémon you are likely to encounter will change over time.
Pokemon Sword and Shield launched yesterday, and if you’re wondering which starter Pokemon you should pick, we’re here to help.
