The Pokemon Company announced on Thursday (29) that this weekend’s Max Raid Battle event on Pokemon Sword / Shield (Switch) has Meowth as its theme. The “Meowth Festival” will take place until May 8. During the event, trainers can find Dynamax versions of different variations of the monster. They will be available in the Pokemon Den of the Wild Area.
Players will be able to pick Meowth regular, Alolan Meowth, Galarian Meowth, and Gigantamax Meowth. There is even a small possibility of capturing a Shiny Galarian Meowth. Other players will be able to challenge them together across the web in a bid to capture them.
If you want to participate, you need to connect the Nintendo Switch to the internet. Furthermore, you’ll need an active Nintendo Switch Online subscription. With these prerequisites done, just interact with a Pokémon Den in the Wild Area that is emitting a column of light.
Pokemon Sword/Shield is currently available for the Nintendo Switch and features two expansion packs. Namely “The Isle of Armor” and “The Crow Tundra” promises a lot of fresh content to expand the possibilities and provide a lot of fun. We believe that more events will happen in the coming months as The Pokemon Company keeps working in future entries.
