is one of only twenty-seven Pokemon that have a Gigantamax
Form in Pokemon Sword & Shield
. However, unlike other Gigantamax Forms
that are obtained by catching that specific Pokemon from a Max Raid Battle
, Gigantamax Pikachu is obtained in a special method. In order to receive Gigantamax Pikachu, you must have a Let's Go Pikachu Save File on the Nintendo Switch you are playing Pokemon Sword or Pokemon Shield on.
If you do, you will have the ability to receive a special Pikachu (one that cannot evolve) that will have the ability to be Gigantamaxed
If you have a Save Data for Let's Go Pikachu
on the same Nintendo Switch you are playing Pokemon Sword & Shield
, you will receive a special Pikachu from a man and his children within the Meetup Spot
in the Wild Area
. This Pikachu will come at Level 10 and, as mentioned, has the ability to Gigantamax
when in battles that allow it. However, it cannot be a Shiny
Pokemon and it cannot evolve.
