Pokémon Battles


Gigantamax Drednaw.Gigantamax Corviknight.

To mix things up, some Pokémon have exclusive Gigantamax Forms. When one of these Pokémon Dynamaxes, their appearance will change and one of their Max Moves will be replaced with a unique G-Max Move. Otherwise, they function the same as Dynamaxed Pokémon (so they don’t have better stats or anything). Gigantamax Form Pokémon can be obtained via certain Max Raid Battles or events.
