You’ve probably seen the Gigantamax Eevee in Pokemon Sword and Shield and wondered how you can get your hands on that much fluff. The good news, at least for players of Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee!, is that it’s very simple. If you have the save file for the game, you’ll receive a Special Eevee from an NPC in the Wild Area Station.

This Eevee is “special” because it has perfect stats. Gigantamax this Pokemon and voila! This same method will work for Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! players that have save data for the same to obtain a Gigantamax Pikachu. Otherwise, you’ll need to scour the Wild Area for an Eevee and Gigantamax it.

How to Find Shiny Pokemon

The method locating Shiny Pokemon is a bit different in Sword and Shield. Essentially, your chance of facing a Shiny Pokemon depends on how many of that Pokemon you’ve already faced in battle. Check your Pokedex to see how many encounters you’ve had with each Pokemon throughout your playtime.

Of course, how long you’ve fought that specific Pokemon will also influence the chance of a Shiny version appearing. The overall rate can vary from 50 Pokemon defeated resulting in double the rate of Shiny Pokemon appearing to 500 Pokemon resulting in six times the rate of Shiny Pokemon appearing. You can also equip the Shiny Charm to further increase the rate of a Shiny’s appearance.
