Likely inspired by Pokémon GO, Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield introduce Max Raid Battles to the main series. During these encounters, up to four players may team up to defeat a rival Pokémon. However, these won’t be just any Pokémon. These will all be giant Dynamax Pokémon!
During the Pokémon Direct 6.5.2019, series’ developer Game Freak revealed a number of new features. One of the most notable was easily the addition of Dynamax. As with Mega Evolution and Z-Moves before it, Dynamax is a region defining ability designed to up the ante of Pokémon battles!
