A new Easter-themed Max Raid Battle event has begun in Pokemon Sword & Shield giving players the chance to take on Cinderace and catch Shiny Azumarill.
Pokemon Sword & Shield has a range of content and activities for trainers to take part in. Whether it’s exploring the game’s expansive world or taking on other players in Ranked Battles, there’s always something to get stuck into.
However, for a lot of players, taking on challenging encounters is the way they enjoy spending most of their time. That’s why Max Raid Battles are so popular in Sword & Shield and Game Freak is constantly updating them with new Pokemon.
This week is no different, with the developers adding a range of Easter-themed Pokemon to Raids and giving trainers a chance to catch Shiny Azumarill.
