Gigantamax Pokémon in Pokémon Sword and Shield can make for a unique experience. One Pokémon, in particular, that was only available to certain players, is now available for all to catch in Gigantamax form. This guide will tell you how to catch Gigantamax Eevee in Pokémon Sword and Shield.
How to Catch Gigantamax Eevee
Pokémon Sword and Shield introduced a new way to battle and catch Pokémon called Max Raid Battles. These battles take place in the Wild Area and allow trainers to confront and capture Dynamax or Gigantamax Pokémon. While Dynamax Pokémon are just bigger versions of themselves, Gigantamax Pokémon will look a lot different. They have a special move that can only be used when they are in their Gigantamax form.
The latest Pokémon that trainers have a chance to battle and catch is Gigantamax Eevee. While the normal Eevee was available to everyone, the Gigatamax version was previously only available for those who owned Pokémon Let’s Go Eevee. But now, Gigantamax Eevee can be caught from now through May 25, so you will want to act quickly.
If you’re interested in capturing Gigantamax Eevee, you will need to get to the Wild Area. Refresh your Raid Dens by connecting to the Internet through Y-Comm. After refreshing your Raid Dens, look for the ones emitting a pillar of red light.
Gigantamax Eevee is a Normal-type Pokémon, so you will want to bring a strong Fighting-type. Rock or Steel-type Pokémon that know fighting moves will be your best bet, as Normal-type Pokémon won’t be able to damage them as much. The only bad news is that Gigantamax Eevee cannot be evolved into any other Eevee evolutions.
Once you have your Gigantamax Eevee, make sure you use its special move, called G-Max Cuddle, against any opponent who dares to cross you. Also, check out our Pokémon Sword and Shield archives for more Pokémon content.
