Full Details for Pokemon Day Event in Sword & Shield

Pokemon day is just a few more days away and The Pokemon Company is rolling out events and updates for several Pokemon games to celebrate. Among those updates, Sword and Shield is also having a Pokemon Day event that lasts from now until Pokemon Day on February 27th. This week only, you’ll be able to find the Kanto starter evolutions in Gigantamax raids around Galar! Some players are disappointed that this was a smaller event than they expected while others agree Sword and Shield isn’t a new game anymore and a new expansion shouldn’t be expected. Pokemon Day also isn’t here just yet and there’s plenty of room for new announcements and updates later this week! For more official information on this event, go to the Pokemon website here.

How to Get Gigantamax Venusaur, Charizard, & Blastoise

To get Gigantamax Venusaur, Gigantamax Charizard, and Gigantamax Blastoise you’ll need to find a Max Raid Battle . Normal raid dens have a red beam of light coming from them while max raids have a bright pink light beam. Upon entering a Max Raid Battle is where you’ll find one of the 3 Kanto starter Pokemon’s evolutions.

Max Mushroom Rewards

Along with the Kantos Starter Gigantimax Pokemon spawning in Dens, you also get a Max Mushroom as a reward for catching or defeating these Pokemon in Max Raid Dens. These mushrooms can be used on Pokemon in battle for buffs or outside of battle to turn a Dynamax form into Gigantamax form and vice versa.

Gigantamax Spawn Rates

  • Gigantamax Venusaur at 33%
  • Gigantamax Charizard 34%
  • Gigantamax Blastoise 33%

As you can see above, all of the Pokemon in Max Raid Dens right now have about the same spawn rate odds with the exception of Charizard. Charizard has an extra 1% chance of spawning compared to the others, this was probably done because it’s arguably the most popular out of the original trio.
