Pokémon Sword and Shield Players can welcome the new year with some huge encounters, accompanied by gifts that will make them roll with in-game currency.
The New Year’s Max Raid Battle Event has begun on Pokémon Sword and Shield, which allows the player to encounter Pokémon that are attributed to celebrating the New Year more often. After defeating these Dynamax Pokémon, the player will also be rewarded with a large amount of Nuggets and Big Nuggets that can be sold for large amounts of money.
The Pokémon featured in this year’s New Year event are Magikarp, Kantonian Meowth, Bonsly, Sudowoodo, Unovan Darkumaka, and Unovan Darmanitan. For players who don’t have access to the game’s DLC or Pokémon HOME software, this is one of the few ways they can get the Kantonian forms of Meowth and the Unovan of Darumaka and Darmanitan, instead of the Kantonian forms of Darumaka and Darmanitan. Galarian is in the area. Players have a guaranteed 2 percent chance of encountering shiny Magikarp in Raid, though they’ll likely encounter regular Magikarp more often.
Up to nine Nuggets can be awarded upon completion of each Max Battle event. A single Big Nugget is guaranteed to drop with a normal Nugget. These items can be sold in the Pokémon Center for 5,000 Poké and 20,000 Poké respectively. Normal Raid bonuses like Berries and TR will not be available from these raids.
The New Year’s Max Battle event in Pokémon Sword and Shield is now available, with an increase in the spawn count of event-specific Pokémon through January 9.
