Pokemon Sword and Shield reveals new Gigantamax Pokemon; Pikachu, Charizard, Eevee, and more


The Pokemon Company Shows today five new Pokemon that will be getting a Gigantamax treatment for Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield: Pikachu, Charizard, Eevee, Meowth, and Butterfree.

In Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield, Gigantamaxing changes the dimensions, power, and appearance of a Pokemon and allows them to utilize a Exceptional Move. Certain species of Pokemon can Gigantamax — as well as among such species, the rare specimens will have the ability to.

Below are more details to the five Pokemon getting a Gigantamax version:

Gigantamax Pikachu
Type: Electric
Height: 68’11″+
Ability: Static

The electricity generated in the sacs in its own cheeks is stored in its tail. It is going to strike at its tail against opponents and ship a jolt of electricity through them. Gigantamax Pikachu has become so powerful it can create electricity that is enough to equal an energy plant. Using this power to help power people’s homes looks difficult, as Pikachu can simply remain Gigantamaxed for a brief moment. Electric-type attacks utilized by Gigantamax Pikachu will shift to G-Max Volt Crash, which not only deals damage but paralyzes all opponents.

Trainers that have play records from Pokémon: Let’s Move, Pikachu! On their Nintendo Switch platform will Have the Ability to Get a special Pikachu that can Gigantamax in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield.

Gigantamax Charizard
Type: Fire/Flying
Height: 91’10″+
Weight: ???
Ability: Blaze


The flames within its body have become stronger, and now fire erupts from horns and its mouth in addition. It seems when Gigantamax Charizard roars that the flames’ strength increases. Charizard’s flames have become enhanced and with Gigantamax electricity form wings on its back. These wings are hotter than magma, and Charizard can fire off them to scorch its opponents. Fire-type strikes used by Gigantamax Charizard will change into G-Max Wildfire. When it strikes, g-Max Wildfire does deal damage –it will also continue to treat damage for four turns.

Gigantamax Eevee
Type: Normal
Height: 59’1″+
Weight: ???
Ability: Run Away / Adaptability

The fur around its neck has become extra fluffy and luxurious thanks to Gigantamax power. Any opponent caught in this fur becomes enamored with Eevee and loses the will to fight. Gigantamaxing has caused Eevee to become more rambunctious than ever, and it will attempt to play with any opponent. However, it often ends up crushing its opponent due to its massive size. Normal-type attacks used by Gigantamax Eevee will change to G-Max Cuddle. G-Max Cuddle doesn’t only deal damage when it hits—any opponent that is the opposite gender of Eevee will become infatuated.


Trainers that have play records from Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! on their Nintendo Switch system will be able to receive a special Eevee that can Gigantamax in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield.
