Pokémon are taking over the Wild Area in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield. Be on the lookout for Tyranitar, Togekiss, Excadrill, Whimsicott, and
Dragapult appearing more frequently in Max Raid Battles until May 11, 2020, at 4:59 p.m. PDT.
Also, you may encounter Heat Rotom or Wash Rotom depending on the version of the game you’re playing.
To challenge these
Pokémon in a Max Raid Battle, you’ll need to connect your Nintendo Switch
system to the internet. 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.
Be sure to read our
Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield Max Raid Battle Tips article for advice on how to topple these
colossal opponents. Don’t wait, though—you won’t want to miss out on the chance
to add these mighty Pokémon to your team!
