In celebration of the launch of The Isle of Armor, a special Max Raid Battle featuring the Mythical Pokémon Zeraora will be available in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield.
If one million players around the world win this Max Raid Battle from June 17 through June 28, Trainers can receive a special Shiny Zeraora.
It is important to remember that the Zeraora appearing in Max Raid Battles cannot be caught.
To receive Shiny Zeraora, players must move a Pokémon between Pokémon HOME and Pokémon Sword or Pokémon Shield during the event. Shiny Zeraora will be gifted via the mobile device version of Pokémon HOME. An internet connection and the latest Wild Area News are required to challenge Zeraora. The Wild Area News is automatically received when the Nintendo Switch system is connected to the internet. Players can manually receive it by selecting Get the Wild Area News under Mystery Gift in the X menu.
