The Gigantamax Eevee event has already ended in Pokémon Sword and Shield, but another exclusive Pokémon has taken its place. Gigantamax Meowth is now available in Max Raid dens in both games until June 2nd.
This is the first time Gigantamax Meowth can be caught in Sword and Shield. Before, Meowth was offered as a special bonus to players who purchased a copy of either game before January 15th. If you missed out on this promotion, you now have a chance to capture this special Pokémon.
Like Gigantamax Pikachu and Eevee, Gigantamax Meowth cannot evolve, but has an exclusive G‑Max move called Gold Rush. This move not only deals damage, but also confuses the foe and dishes out more money after the battle.
If you want the Gigantamax Meowth the appear in you Raid Dens, refresh them by connecting online via the Y‑Comm or going to Mystery Gift and selecting Get the Wild Area news.
Pokémon Sword and Shield will be getting a couple of large expansions year, the Isle of Armor and The Crown Tundra. The former is launching sometime next month, while the latter will release during the fall. To celebrate the Isle of Armor’s release, The Pokémon Company is giving away several Galarian Pokémon with their Hidden Abilities via Mystery Gift.
