We hope you're all ready for some festivities because Pokemon Day is now live and ready for fans to participate in, at least when it comes to Pokemon Sword and Shield. The event has started, which means that the Armored Mewtwo as foretold by prophecy and a whole other host of things have now made their way into Pokemon GO, but that doesn't mean that there aren't cool additions to Galar as well. Here's what we know about the Pokemon Day 2020 Max Raids and more. 

Pokemon Day 2020 Max Raids and More - What We Know

It's an easy argument to make that the Max Raids are the bit of the end-game in Pokemon Sword and Shield that we're enjoying the most gleefully. With tons of Pokemon to acquire and the added perks of teaming up with mates, what's not to love? Well, we're about to get hit with some wild nostalgia when it comes to the Pokemon Day 2020 Max Raids. Yes, while the festivities are meant to officially kick off on February 27, it's come to our attention that the following Pokemon are now currently available in the Pokemon Sword and Shield Max Raids:

  • Mewtwo
  • Bulbasaur
  • Charmander
  • Squirtle
  • Krabby
  • Impidimp
  • Toxel
  • Kingler
  • Toxtricity
  • Morgrem
  • Ivysaur
  • Charmeleon
  • Wartortle
  • Grimmsnarl
  • Dottler
  • Hatenna
  • Orbeetle
  • Hatterene

While we're not quite sure when the Pokemon Day festivities are going to end (these Pokemon may only be sticking around for a little while), it's nice to see such a huge variety of Pokemon that can be acquired via Max Raids this time around. It's truly a celebration of fun for all the family! When it comes to Mewtwo, however, it's important to note that they can't be captured at this stage and we're not sure if this is going to change at all. Mewtwo will only show up in 5-star Max Raid battles, so you have that to look forward to if you're enthusiastically plowing through them this week.

Now that you have our Pokemon Day 2020 Max Raids guide, we'll make sure that we keep our dedicated guides hub stocked with content as the Pokemon Day celebrations carry on so that you can always be assured of the latest in the event.
