New Pokémon Sword/Shield Wild Area event underway
A dark day for Pokémon fans
The Pokémon Sword and Shield Wild Area event has shifted once again, and this time around things are getting considerably more dark.
From now until August 21st, 2022, Grimmsnarl will appear more often in Max Raid Battles. Keep an eye out, as you might be able to snag a Shiny one as well!
For an opportunity to encounter this Pokémon in a Max Raid Battle, you’ll need to connect your Switch 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, 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.
