Pokemon Sword & Shield: Milcery Max Raid Event Ending Soon

It's your last chance to find Milcery with the Gigantamax factor in Max Raids.


A new handful of Gigantamax Pokemon have arrived in Pokemon Sword and Shield, as have a couple of new freebies, but there's still a little time left to take advantage of the Milcery Max Raid event. Until February 16, you'll have a much greater chance of finding the Cream Pokemon in Max Raids, and these are special for a couple of reasons.

Milcery that you encounter in Max Raids will have the Gigantamax factor, meaning that they'll evolve into an Alcremie that's capable of Gigantamaxing. On top of that, two new types of Sweets--Ribbon and Star--have been added to Sword and Shield as rewards for completing Milcery Raids, which means you can evolve the Pokemon into two new variants of Alcremie.

In addition to the new Max Raid event, a couple of new freebies also available in Pokemon Sword and Shield. First, until March 31, you can claim 10 Heal Balls via Mystery Gift. Any Pokemon that's captured in these balls will automatically be fully healed afterward. To claim the present, select Mystery Gift from the menu screen and enter the code G1GAGRANF1NALE.

On top of that, developer Game Freak is giving out another 20 free Battle Points to commemorate the start of Sword and Shield's third Ranked Battle season. To claim the Battle Points, go into Mystery Gift and input the code SUPEREFF1CACE. The points will be up for grabs until March 30.

In other Sword and Shield news, The Pokemon Company will reveal a brand-new Mythical Pokemon for the games on February 27. Two expansions for Sword and Shield, dubbed Isle of Armor and Crown Tundra, will also be released this year, while the cloud storage service Pokemon Home recently launched for Switch and mobile devices.
