The festive season arrives in Pokémon Sword and Shield's Max Raid Battles

Not open for further replies.
  • Staff
Holiday-themed Pokémon will be appearing more frequently in Max Raid Battles in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield through until December 26th, 2021, at 3:59 p.m. PST. These Pokémon include Starmie, Delibird, and Cryogonal. Very rarely, a Shiny Delibird may also be encountered.

To encounter these Pokémon in a Max Raid Battle, players will need to connect their Nintendo Switch systems to the internet through the Y-Comm or by selecting Mystery Gift in the X menu, then selecting Get the Wild Area News. Simply walk up to and interact with any Pokémon Den in the Wild Area whenever you see a pillar of light shining from it to start a Max Raid Battle. This event does not affect the Pokémon encountered within Dynamax Adventures.
