Pokemon Sword and Shield: Riolu, Pichu, and More Appearing in Max Raid Battles
Lots of 'little' Pokemon will be available to battle for a limited time.
From now until April 15 at 4:59 p.m. PT, Dynamax versions of Ditto, Pichu, Cleffa, Togepi, Tyrogue, Wynaut, Budew, Bonsly, Mime Jr., Munchlax, Riolu, Mantyke, and Toxel will appear more frequently in Max Raid Battles. You can find these Max Raid Battles by looking for the beams of light shooting into the sky in the Wild Area.
When you defeat one of these Pokemon in a Max Raid Battle, you’ll have the chance to receive special items like Destiny Knots and Everstones. You’ll also be able to attempt to capture them if you want to add these pocket monsters to your collection.
Finally, if you’re looking for only one or two of these Pokemon to battle, remember that you can connect your game to the internet to try and find other players who are battling these pocket monsters. If you’re quick, you may be able to join their battles for a chance to take on the Pokemon you’re searching for.
