The latest round of Pokemon Sword and Shield Max Raids is here. This time, three Gigantamax forms are the stars. But, which characters you see will depend on which game you have. Pokemon Sword Appletun and Toxtricity (Low Key) Gigantamax raids are running until September 30, 2020. Meanwhile, Pokemon Shield Flapple and Toxtricity (Amped) raids are available.

While the highlights are the chances to more easily get Gigantamax Appletun, Flapple, and Toxtricity, there are other electric-types and grass-types dwelling in Wild Area dens at the moment. The official announcement also said people can expect to see characters like Boltund, Eldegoss, Ferrothorn, and Heliolisk. You should also their earlier forms, like Applin, Ferroseed, Gossifleur, Helioptile, Toxel, and Yamper, too.

There’s something else happening in Pokemon Sword and Shield. When you’re looking for new Max Raids in the Wild Area, you might notice it’s a bit difficult to see. As Serebii pointed out, fog descended on all areas of the map. This is a means of ringing in the fall season in-game.

Pokemon Sword and Shield are available for the Nintendo Switch. The Gigantamax Appletun, Flapple, and Toxtricity Max Raid event will be in effect until September 30, 2020. One of the last Max Raid events featured Gigantamax Drednaw and Sandaconda.
