You can now do battle against and, if you’re victorious, perhaps even catch Gigantamax Snorlax in Pokemon Sword and Shield’s Max Raid Battles. This is part of a limited-time event that will run until January 5, 2020.
If you want to fight against Gigantamax Snorlax, make sure your game is fully updated, and then check out the Pokémon Dens that dot the Wild Area. You need to be connected to the internet to enter a Max Raid Battle.
“Players can also achieve the same results manually by opening the X menu in their game, selecting Mystery Gift, and then selecting Get the Wild Area News,” The Pokémon Company revealed.
