From today until June 19, 2022 Gigantamax VUrshifu will become more common in Max Raid Battles in the Wild Area.

  • from today until June 19, 2022, at 4:59 p.m. PDT players will be more likely to encounter G-MAX Urshifu in Max Raid Battles.
    Note: G-Max Urshifu (Single Strike and Rapid Strike) can't be captured but will give out great rewards if defeated
Notes: to enjoy this feature you’ll need to connect to the internet. Connecting your Nintendo Switch system to the internet will automatically enable you to encounter the latest Pokémon appearing in the Wild Area. You can achieve the same results manually by opening the X menu in your game, selecting Mystery Gift, and then selecting Get the Wild Area News.

Challenge Gigantamax Urshifu in Max Raid Battles
Earn valuable items by defeating this Legendary Pokémon in your Pokémon Sword or Pokémon Shield game.
Big Max Raid Battles against Legendary Pokémon are waiting for you in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield. Until June 19, 2022, at 4:59 p.m. PDT, Gigantamax Urshifu (Single Strike Style) and Gigantamax Urshifu (Rapid Strike Style) will appear more often in Pokémon Dens. Although these mighty Wushu Pokémon won't give you a chance to catch them, you'll be rewarded with valuable items you wouldn't normally receive from Max Raid Battles by defeating them.
For an opportunity to encounter these Pokémon in a Max Raid Battle, you'll need to connect your Nintendo Switch system to the internet through Y-Comm or by selecting Mystery Gift in the X menu, then selecting Get the Wild Area News. After that, whenever you see a pillar of light shining from a Pokémon Den in the Wild Area or elsewhere, you can walk up to the Pokémon Den and interact with it to start a Max Raid Battle with a Dynamax Pokémon. This event does not affect the Pokémon encountered within Dynamax Adventures.
Be sure to read our Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield Max Raid Battle Tips article for advice on how to topple these opponents. Don't wait, though—you don't want to miss out on the chance to face these powerful Pokémon!
