Pokemon Sword and Shield‘s brief Easter-themed Max Raid event has ended, but a new one is now underway in the games. Unlike the past few Max Raid events, however, this one doesn’t appear to feature any Gigantamax Pokemon, although it does give you more chances to catch Ditto as well as a few other Gen 8 monsters.
According to Serebii, Ditto is currently appearing more frequently in Max Raid dens across the Wild Area, Isle of Armor, and Crown Tundra. Since Pokemon you encounter in Max Raids typically have better base stats than the ones you find in the field, this is a good chance to catch a few Ditto (particularly if you’re interested in breeding Pokemon). Corviknight, Centiskorch, Dubwool, Drednaw, Orbeetle, and their pre-evolved forms are also appearing more frequently for the duration of the event.
Before you can encounter the featured Pokemon in your game, you’ll first need to refresh your Raid dens. You can do so either by connecting your game online or by opening the Mystery Gift menu and selecting Get the Wild Area news.
