Max Raid Battles

Features

Max Raid Battles are a multiplayer feature that utilises the Dynamax Feature. In the Wild Area, you'll often find areas where a Dynamaxed Pokémon can be found. These are often denoted by a red beam of light coming from the den, but if it is one of the rarer Pokémon it'll have big purple light. This is due to each den pulling two different encounter possibilities: A common set and a rare set.

To defeat it, you have to play with up to 4 other players to battle it, with one player being able to Dynamax their own Pokémon. This can be done locally or online, but if three more players can't be found, Support Trainers will be added, controlled by NPCs.

The Pokémon you'll find in Max Raid Battles change every day naturally, with the same number of spawns you have carrying over to the next day until you clear them and the next set increases. You can also trigger max Raid Battles yourself using Wishing Piece items that you can purchase in the Wild Area. Each Den brings a Pokémon from a pool of two possible options, a common raid pool and a rare raid pool each time a raid is triggered there. The Pokémon's nature, stats, ability and if it's shiny are set when the beam appears, not randomised each time you battle.

Max Raid Battles have some limits. If 4 Pokémon are knocked out, or 10 turns pass, the match loses. As you progress through the game you'll see more higher level Raids and less lower level Raids

Battling

The battling is done in a unique way. All four Pokémon can target each other or the Dynamaxed Pokémon. However, only one player can Dynamax and the player that can Dynamax rotates every turn. Once one player has used Dynamax on their Pokémon, no other player can.

The Dynamax Raid Boss can also unleash multiple attacks in a turn, including attacks that are not Max Moves. When its HP reaches a certain amount, it will also unleash a protection guard. This guard has a gauge of a certain amount of bars (between 3 and 7 depending on the strength of the Pokémon) which need depleting before the Pokémon can receive full damage again. All damaging attacks will take off at least one bar with super effective Max Moves taking off two. Depending on the move strength, some minimal damage will be done despite the shield.

If your Pokémon are knocked out during the battle, you can Cheer on your allies. This has the following effects:
Adds Reflect
Adds Light Screen
Removes Opponent's Shield
Raises Attack of all foes
Removes Status Conditions
Fully restores ally Hit Points
Does nothing .

After missing one turn, your knocked out Pokémon is automatically recovered and sent back in.

Catching Pokémon

After you have defeated the Pokémon, you will gain the ability to capture it. Pokémon that you capture will have various stats but with Max Raid Battles, you also have a chance of them having their Hidden Ability or, for some species, them being their Gigantamax variant

In addition to this, depending on the Pokémon and the star rating, the Pokémon can also have anywhere from 1 max IV to 4 max IVs guaranteed.

The Pokémon's Level varies depending on the level of raid it is. However, if you access say a Level 5 raid when you are at the start of the game, the level will be scaled down to match your highest catchable level.

Star RatingLevel
Level 15-20
☆☆Level 25-30
☆☆☆Level 35-40
☆☆☆☆Level 45-50
☆☆☆☆☆Level 55-60

These levels do not affect the levels of Pokémon that can be found in special Event Dens.

Each Pokémon has got a specific Catch Rate. If you play Solo without going online, for any standard Max Raid Battle or Gigantamax Raid Battle away from the Special Events will have guaranteed capture. However, if you go online or play with other players locally this changes.

When you join other people's raid battles, you will have the standard rate of capture for the Pokémon based on its species, but Gigantamax changes this. If you're hosting the raid, you have a higher chance ofcatching the Gigantamax but if you're joining in, the rates are on par with Legendary Pokémon. All the Balls will have the usual effect. Status conditions are lost as soon as the Pokémon is defeated so it acts like the Pokémon at 1HP for the purposes of capture
