The Pokemon Sword and Shield Max Raid Battle Event with the shiny Grimmsnarl is now live ...

Pokemon Sword and Shield has announced a new Wild Area Max Raid Battle Event, which will allow players to capture a shiny form of Grimmsnarl.

During this event, which is now live in-game, youll encounter Pokemon from Grimmsnarls line of evolution, including Impidimp, Morgrem, and, of course, Grimmsnarl itself.

Serebii Update: A new Max Raid Battle Event with various the Impidimp has begun in Pokemon Sword & Shield, with a chance to get Shiny Grimmsnarl. Visit http://t.co/gDbXkHSvkT or follow me on twitter @O4gySdLwsB.

Impidimp will only be able to confront you in one-star and two-star raids, but when you get up to three stars Morgrem starts to appear. Four-star raids have the chance of being all three of the Pokemon in this evolution line and fifth-star raids will only be Grimmsnarl with the opportunity to confront a shiny.

The shiny Grimmsnarl takes a while goat of fur and purple skin, instead of the usual goblin Pokemon's black and green appearance. It's very different from the original.

During this event, there will not be any special items available for grabs. Instead, youll find the usual berries, TMs, and other items you can expect from Pokemon Max Raid Battles.

Once it is finished, this event will run from now until the weekend and be replaced with the usual raid battle foes.

Battles have now begun for players who signed up for the I Choose Chu! Online Competition. You will have two days to enter and claim your 50 BP while competing only with Pikachu evolutions.
