Pokémon Sword & Shield: Where to find Gigantamax Pokémon Location Guide
While all Pokémon in Sword & Shield have the ability to Dynamax, not all can Gigantamax, or G-Max. The latter is a special form with visual differences from its normal appearance. Even if the species does have a Gigantamax Form, not all individuals can access it. Only special Pokémon captured in the Wild Area’s Max Raid battles are able to.
This location guide will show you where the Gigantamax Pokémon spawn and make hunting for them much easier. It was compiled with the help of Japanese site Game8 and Twitter user Eclipse.
Psst! We’re currently giving away a Japanese Dragonite & Dratini plushie! Care to enter?! Check it out here.
