Fairy and Flying-type Pokemon have returned to Max Raid Battles in Sword & Shield following the limited-time flower-based event.

Pokemon Sword & Shield is filled with a range of content for players to get stuck into on a daily basis. While some trainers just like exploring the game’s expansive world, others prefer to test themselves against challenging Pokemon.

In order to do that, players must visit the Wild Area and seek out Max Raid Battles against various Pokemon that are constantly updated by Game Freak. Keeping track of these Max Raid changes is key if you want to pickup as many exclusive rewards as possible.
