Pokémon Sword and Shield players have a chance to catch Gigantamax Eevee after beating it in a Max Raid Battle, but only for a limited time.
“This adorable Pokémon does not normally appear in the Wild Area, so take this special opportunity to search Wild Area dens and see if you encounter one,” reads a news announcement on Nintendo eShop.
Players have until 7:59 PM Eastern time on Monday, May 25, 2020 to catch the Normal-type Evolution Pokémon. To ensure you’re receiving the latest game content, open the menu in Pokémon Sword or Pokémon Shield and select “Mystery Gift” then “Get the Wild Area News.”
Prior to this event, Gigantamax Eevee was only available to players who had a save file for Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!
Last week, Trainers had a chance to catch Gigantamax Pikachu. Next week, Gigantamax Meowth will join in on the Max Raid Battle rotation.
