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.
Psst! We’re currently giving away a Japanese Dragonite & Dratini plushie! Care to enter?! Check it out here.
