Pokemon Sword and Shield players will be able to encounter a new Gigantamax Pokemon soon.
In the new trailer, the developer revealed the new Gigatamax Snorlax which players will start encountering on the 4th of December. The only way for players to catch the Pokemon will be to defeat it in Max Raid battles.
To do so, you will need to be connected to the internet while exploring the Wild Area or go to Mystery Gift and choose “Get the Wild Area News” to make sure your game is up to date.
With the Gigantamax Snorlax, its normal move will become G-Max Replenish which not only deals damage but it will restore berries that Snorlax or its allies have eaten during the battle.
We can expect more Gigantamax Pokemon to get added to the game in the future.
