From today until June 28, Zeraora will become more common in Max Raid Battles in the Wild Area.
You won't be able to catch Zeraora after it's defeated, but if at least one million Trainers manage to defeat Zeraora during this special event, a Shiny Zeraora will be available to everyone in Pokémon HOME.
