Encounter Musharna, Lilligant, Shiny Clefable, and More in Max Raid Battles

Celebrate the seasonal equinox in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield with Pokémon that evolved with Moon Stones and Sun Stones.

September's seasonal equinox is almost upon us, Trainers. This day that grants us equal parts daylight and darkness is being commemorated in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield with a Max Raid Battle event. From Thursday, September 17, 2020, at 5:00 p.m. PDT until Sunday, September 20, 2020, at 4:59 p.m. PDT, you will encounter raids featuring Pokémon that evolved from the use of either a Moon Stone or a Sun Stone.

During the event period, be on the lookout for more frequent raid encounters with Moon Stone–centric Pokémon—like Clefable, Wigglytuff, and Musharna—and Sun Stone–evolved Pokémon—like Bellossom, Whimsicott, and Lilligant. If you're extremely lucky, you might even encounter a Shiny Clefable.

To encounter these Pokémon in a Max Raid Battle, you'll need to connect your Nintendo Switch system to the internet through Y-Comm or by selecting Mystery Gift in the X menu, then selecting Get the Wild Area News. After that, whenever you see a pillar of light shining from a Pokémon Den in the Wild Area, you can walk up to the Pokémon Den and interact with it to start a Max Raid Battle with a Dynamax Pokémon.

The new season of Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield Ranked Battles has begun and will run throughout September 2020. Test your Trainer skills in head-to-head battles with players around the world, move up the global leaderboards, and earn helpful in-game rewards.

Only Pokémon obtained in Pokémon Sword or Pokémon Shield or those with the battle-ready symbol are eligible. Pokémon from previous games in the Pokémon series can receive the battle-ready symbol by speaking with the character next to the door in the center of the Battle Tower. Moves that cannot be used in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield will be forgotten when the battle-ready symbol is applied to your Pokémon. Once forgotten, these moves cannot be remembered.

The Ranked Battles September Season (Season 10) will follow the Series 6 regulations, which means the following top-ranked Pokémon from the July season (Season 8) are not permitted: Venusaur, Gyarados, Porygon2, Tyranitar, Torkoal, Hippowdon, Magnezone, Togekiss, Excadrill, Whimsicott, Incineroar, Mimikyu, Rillaboom, Cinderace, Indeedee, and Dragapult.

Test your Trainer skills in head-to-head battles with players around the world in Ranked Battles Series 6, kicking off Monday, August 31, 2020, at 9:00 p.m. PDT and ending Saturday, October 31, 2020, at 4:59 p.m. PDT. Here's what you need to know in order to have a successful series.

Eligible Pokémon
This battle format will ensure new Pokémon have a chance to shine! In Ranked Battles Series 6, competitors won't be permitted to use Pokémon that reached the top 10 for Single Battles or Double Battles in Pokémon HOME's Pokémon rankings, which track the Pokémon most commonly seen on Battle Teams along with their moves, Abilities, and held items. Venusaur, Gyarados, Porygon2, Tyranitar, Torkoal, Hippowdon, Magnezone, Togekiss, Excadrill, Whimsicott, Incineroar, Mimikyu, Rillaboom, Cinderace, Indeedee, and Dragapult won't be available in Series 6, so Trainers will have to come up with all-new strategies as they battle up the ranks. This is an exciting opportunity to see some less commonly used Pokémon shine in battle.

Otherwise, Galar Pokédex No. 001–397, Isle of Armor Pokédex No. 001–210, Cobalion, Terrakion, Virizion, Rowlet, Dartrix, Decidueye, Litten, Torracat, Popplio, Brionne, and Primarina may be used. All eligible Gigantamax Pokémon may be used.

Only Pokémon obtained in Pokémon Sword or Pokémon Shield or those with the battle-ready symbol are eligible.

Timers
Total Time: 20 minutes
Player Time: 7 minutes
Preview Time: 90 seconds
Turn Time: 45 seconds

Battle data and results will be provided to Nintendo Co., Ltd., and The Pokémon Company (and their subsidiaries). Players engaging in the following activities may receive penalties and be restricted from participating in future online events.

  • Use of unauthorized methods to alter game save data, use of Pokémon that have data altered via altering code, or use of Pokémon created via altering code
  • Significantly large number of disconnects during battle, from when an opponent has been decided to when the match results have been fully sent to the server (please ensure a stable connection environment when connecting to the internet)
  • Troubling behavior that could affect other participants or make others feel unpleasant
  • Actions that would obstruct battles and operations, such as hacking
  • Registering with incorrect information or impersonating another player
  • Other actions that operation hosts determine to be inappropriate
