Fossil Pokémon are revived in Max Raid Battles in Pokémon Sword and Shield

Fossil Pokémon - Wild Area News.jpg
Several prehistoric Pokémon will be appearing more frequently in Max Raid Battles in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield through March 27, 2022, at 4:59 p.m. PDT. These Pokémon include Carracosta, Archeops, Tyrantrum, and Aurorus. Very rarely, Shiny Tyrantrum can also be encountered.

To encounter these Pokémon in a Max Raid Battle, you'll need to connect your Nintendo Switch system to the internet through the Y-Comm or by selecting Mystery Gift in the X menu, then selecting Get the Wild Area News. After that, 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. This event does not affect the Pokémon encountered within Dynamax Adventures.
