One of the big new features in Pokemon Sword and Shield is Dynamaxing, which increases a Pokemon's size and powers up its stats for three turns during battles. While any Pokemon can Dynamax, only a few species are capable of Gigantamaxing, which not only supersizes a Pokemon, but changes its appearance as well.Even among the Pokemon species that can Gigantamax, only special individuals are actually capable of taking on these forms. For instance, only certain Butterfree you catch through Max Raid battles can Gigantamax; those you capture normally will only be able to Dynamax. You can also get a couple of Gigantamax Pokemon for free; if you have save data from Let's Go Pikachu or Eevee on your Switch, you can get a Gigantamax Pikachu or Eevee at the Wild Area Station, and everyone who picks up Sword or Shield by January 15 can get a free Gigantamax Meowth.The Pokemon Company revealed a handful of Gigantamax forms ahead of Sword and Shield's launch, but there are many more in the games … [Read more...] about Pokemon Sword & Shield Gigantamax Guide: How To Catch Gigantamax Pokemon

You also need to keep in mind that you can only catch Pokemon of a certain level depending on how many badges you've collected, so you can't capture every wild Pokemon you encounter right away.Fortunately, … [Read more...] about Pokemon Sword & Shield Guide: Where To Catch Galarian Ponyta, Farfetch’d, And More Rare Pokemon
