The Wild Area regularly features rotating raid spawns in Pokémon Sword & Shield, but players may want to take note of the latest event. Formerly exclusive to those who had save file from Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu!, Gigantamax Pikachu (and its shiny form) can be encountered and captured, but only for a limited time. Similarly, Gigantamax Eevee will be featured soon after, as well as Gigantamax Meowth. These are not obtainable through regular gameplay, so players who haven’t added them to their collection should take advantage of this opportunity.
From the official Pokémon website, the schedule will be as follows:
- Gigantamax Pikachu: May 11, 2020 – May 18, 2020
- Gigantamax Eevee: May 18, 2020 – May 25, 2020
- Gigantamax Meowth: May 25, 2020 – June 2, 2020
Let us know if you’ve already captured a shiny Gigantamax Pikachu! Which of the three is your favorite? I can’t help but be a fan of Gigantamax Eevee myself.
