Pokemon Sword and Shield - Zeraora raid

Game Freak’s Pokemon Sword and Shield has a new Max Raid event starting today. It sees players battling Zeraora, the Mythical Electric-type Pokemon, in a Max Raid battle. The event will start today and end on June 28th.

Requirements include an internet connection and the newest Wild Area News (available through the Mystery Gift menu). It’s worth noting that defeating Zeraora won’t net you the Pokemon. Instead, the event requires one million players to beat the Max Raid. Once this goal is reached, everyone will receive a Shiny Zeraora.

Oddly enough, Pokemon Home will be required as well. Transfer a Pokemon to either Pokemon Sword or Shield while the event is ongoing. Shiny Zeraora will show up in Pokemon Home on mobile once the goal has been reached.

In other Pokemon news, a new Pokemon Snap is in development for Nintendo Switch. There’s also Pokemon Cafe Mix, a puzzle game coming to Switch, iOS and Android on June 23rd. Pokemon Sword and Shield Expansion Pass holders can also look forward to The Isle of Armor, the first expansion that’s out today.
