|Things are going to get rowdy when you take part in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield's Spikemuth Cup. Named after the home of the raucous Team Yell, this Online Competition shares the same restriction that all Gym Challengers must face when battling in Spikemuth—Dynamaxing and Gigantamaxing are not permitted. So put your skills to the test and make some noise during this global event, because it's sure to be a weekend filled with action-packed battles worth yelling about.
