As the Wild Area changes up, Pokemon Sword and Shield players now have a new event to enjoy: the Max Raid Battle Event featuring only Pokemon small in stature.
Although you'll have a chance at catching one of them in its shiny version, this event, which is now available, will feature only three different Pokemon. These Pokemon are Snom, Pyukumuku, and Pincurchin.
Update on Serebii: A new special Max Raid Battle Event has begun in Pokemon Sword & Shield focusing on various small Pokemon, including a chance to get Shiny Snom. Details are now available on twitter @ https://t.co/gDbXkHSvkT pic.twitter.com/zUdIEqKydo
With the shiny form of Snom appearing once you encounter a five-star raid, these Pokemon are available at all tiers of raid battle. Unless you remove this and their level, you will not notice any difference between the Pokemon at different raid levels.
It appears like you'll receive any items other than ordinary rewards, so unless you've previously encountered any of these specific Pokemon, it may be an event to skip over.
It's no surprise that Sword and Shield players are receiving these kinds of changes as part of the introduction of a new generation of mainline Pokemon games. Nevertheless, Sword and Shield players are still getting events like this to keep things fresh for the time being.
The Pokemon Scarlet or Violet will be available on November 18th, so the wait wont be too long. Check out the available discounts here.
This new wild event in Pokemon Sword and Shield will be available throughout the weekend.
