Track Down Shiny Skwovet and More in Max Raid Battles

The Berry-loving Pokémon is the star of a weekend-long event in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield.

Things are getting nuts in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield. From Thursday, November 19, 2020, at 4:00 p.m. PST through Sunday, November 22, 2020, at 3:59 p.m. PST, Skwovet will appear much more frequently in Max Raid Battles. While you're battling this Cheeky Pokémon, you'll even have a better chance of encountering a Shiny Skwovet! During this event, you'll also notice an increased number of Cherubi, Amoonguss, Shiinotic, and Greedent showing up in Max Raid Battles. These Pokémon must be very hungry, because Berries will be plentiful as Max Raid Battle rewards all weekend long, too.

For an opportunity 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, you can walk up to the Pokémon Den and interact with it to start a Max Raid Battle with a Dynamax Pokémon. This event does not affect the Pokémon encountered within Dynamax Adventures.

Today, The Pokémon Company International announced that the Mythical Pokémon Zarude will star in the next animated Pokémon film, “Pokémon the Movie: Secrets of the Jungle,” and the latest Pokémon Trading Card Game expansion that launched today.

“Pokémon the Movie: Secrets of the Jungle” Trailer Revealed

The Pokémon Company International unveiled the newest animated film based on the beloved Pokémon franchise, “Pokémon the Movie: Secrets of the Jungle,” coming to fans around the world in 2021. Trainers can watch the official trailer for “Pokémon the Movie: Secrets of the Jungle” on the Pokémon YouTube channel.

As the 23rd animated Pokémon film, “Pokémon the Movie: Secrets of the Jungle” tells the story of Koko, a young boy raised by Pokémon, and the creation of a new bond between humans and Pokémon. ​Deep in the jungle, far from any human settlement, is the Forest of Okoya—a Pokémon paradise forbidden to outsiders and protected by a strict code of rules.​ In this jungle lives Koko, a human boy who has been raised as a Pokémon by the Mythical Pokémon Zarude. Koko has grown up never doubting that he is a Pokémon. But one day, a chance meeting with Ash and Pikachu leaves Koko with his first human friend. Is he truly a Pokémon? Or is he, in fact, a human? When danger threatens the Forest of Okoya, the bonds between Pokémon and human—as well as the love between parent and child—will be put to the test.

New Pokémon TCG: Sword & Shield—Vivid Voltage Expansion Released

Zarude will also make its debut in the Pokémon TCG in the latest expansion, Sword & Shield—Vivid Voltage, from The Pokémon Company International. The set is now available at participating retailers worldwide, including Pokémon Center, the premier destination for official, high-quality Pokémon merchandise in the US and Canada.

Sword & Shield—Vivid Voltage also introduces an all-new kind of card called Amazing Pokémon, which features Legendary or Mythical Pokémon illustrated with vividly rainbow backgrounds that extend outside of the frame, as well as foil, etched details and a special rarity symbol. The full expansion includes six Amazing Pokémon; six Pokémon VMAX, including Pikachu VMAX, Orbeetle VMAX, and Coalossal VMAX shown in their Gigantamax forms; 11 Pokémon V plus 13 full-art Pokémon V; and more.

POKÉMON SWORD + POKÉMON SWORD EXPANSION PASS & POKÉMON SHIELD + POKÉMON SHIELD EXPANSION PASS BUNDLES OUT NOW

Newly Discovered Legendary Pokémon in The Crown Tundra Also Revealed

For those that haven’t yet started an adventure in the Galar region, these bundles include the same game content players would receive by purchasing either Pokémon Sword or Pokémon Shield (physical or downloadable version) and the corresponding Expansion Pass separately—all preloaded on a single game card.

Trainers that purchase the new bundles will receive one hundred Poké Balls as an in-game special purchase bonus, as well as codes for the Pikachu Uniform and Eevee Uniform that were previously offered as special purchase bonuses for buying the base game and corresponding Expansion Pass separately.[1]

Players can also now discover new Legendary Pokémon within The Crown Tundra, as well as uncover the story behind the Legendary Pokémon Calyrex. Stories tell of a ruffian Pokémon that once reigned like a lord over the other Pokémon of the Crown Tundra. Time and again, it would grow enraged with humans who intruded on its territory, and it would hurt those humans and their Pokémon. But then the Legendary Pokémon Calyrex appeared and defeated the ruffian, which eventually bonded with the regal Pokémon and became its loyal steed.

Newly Discovered Legendary Pokémon

pokemon

Glastrier
Category: Wild Horse Pokémon
Height: 7'3"
Weight: 1,763.7 lbs.
Type: Ice
Ability: Chilling Neigh


Glastrier generates intense cold air within its body and emits that cold from its nose and hooves. This cold air covers its face and legs in unyielding ice, giving its attacks extraordinary destructive power. Nimble movements are not Glastrier’s strong suit, but it can use the cold exuded from its hooves to freeze the ground, letting it shoot off sliding across the ice to close distances in a flash during battle. Glastrier’s Ability, Chilling Neigh, is a new Ability introduced with the Pokémon Sword Expansion Pass and Pokémon Shield Expansion Pass. When a Pokémon with this Ability knocks out a target, its Attack stat is boosted.

Spectrier
Category: Swift Horse Pokémon
Height: 6'7"
Weight: 98.1 lbs.
Type: Ghost
Ability: Grim Neigh

This Pokémon craves silence and solitude and tends to be active at night when its energy is heightened. Its nocturnal habits have left its eyesight weak, but Spectrier’s other four senses are keenly sharpened, and they give it an accurate sense of the terrain and the locations of living things. Spectrier’s Ability, Grim Neigh, is a new Ability introduced with the Pokémon Sword Expansion Pass and Pokémon Shield Expansion Pass. When a Pokémon with this Ability knocks out a target, its Sp. Atk stat is boosted.

Ice Rider Calyrex
Category: High King Pokémon
Height: 7'10"
Weight: 1,783.8 lbs.
Type: Psychic/Ice
Ability: As One


Glastrier’s powers are heightened by Calyrex’s psychic energy. The cold Glastrier emits can reach five hundred degrees below zero. It also has the endurance to run for seven days and nights on end, no matter how rough the road, by instantly freezing and smashing through any obstacles in its path. Glastrier’s intense cold has brought out the full potential of Calyrex’s psychic powers as well. This lets Calyrex manifest its powers over a radius of more than 30 miles.

Shadow Rider Calyrex
Category: High King Pokémon
Height: 7'10"
Weight: 118.2 lbs.
Type: Psychic/Ghost
Ability: As One

Spectrier’s skills have been heightened by Calyrex’s psychic energy. It is swift enough to run thousands of miles in a single day, and its spectral powers have gained strength. Moreover, Spectrier’s unearthly might has unlocked the full potential of Calyrex’s psychic power. This lets Calyrex see all events from past to future. The regal Pokémon can manifest this power over a radius of more than 30 miles.
