A shell of an opponent
Pokémon Sword and Shield’s next Max Raid Battle event has been announced. The event kicks off tonight and runs until May 22nd, 2022. In this event, Shellder will appear in Max Raid Battles, and Shiny Shellder will also be available.
Max Raid Battles are a multiplayer feature that utilises the Dynamax Feature. In the Wild Area, you’ll often find areas where a Dynamaxed Pokémon can be found. These are often denoted by a red beam of light coming from the den, but if it is one of the rarer Pokémon it’ll have big purple light. This is due to each den pulling two different encounter possibilities: A common set and a rare set.
