Small Pokémon turn huge in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield Max Raid Battles until September 18th

Pyukumuku, Pincurchin, and Snom will all be appearing more frequently in Max Raid Battles in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield through September 18th, at 4:59pm (PDT). Very rarely, Shiny Snom can also be encountered.

To encounter these Pokémon in a Max Raid Battle, players must connect your Nintendo Switch system to the internet through the Y-Comm or by selecting Mystery Gift in the X menu, then select Get the Wild Area News. After that, whenever a pillar of light shines from a Pokémon Den in the Wild Area, players 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.
