The Pokémon Company and Game Freak have confirmed that Max Raid Battles in Pokémon Sword and Shield are now celebrating the Year of the Ox.
From today until 11.59 GMT (3.59 PST) on Sunday 24th January, you will be more likely to encounter Tauros, Miltank and Bouffalant in the game’s Max Raid Battles, with the chance that you may encounter a Shiny Tauros.
As always, you will need to connect your Nintendo Switch to the internet to participate in Max Raid Battles. Then, you must look for a pillar of light shining from a Pokémon Den in the Wild Area to start battling against a Dynamax Pokémon.
Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield are now available exclusively for Nintendo Switch worldwide.
