Pokemon Sword and Shield Set to Receive a Massive Pokedex Update

For all the fans out there, recent news from Pokemon will leave them in awe. Developers prepare a massive update for Pokemon Sword and Shield, soon in December. For the game, this is the perfect time for such an event, considering its rough start and decision not to bring back the past generation of Pokemon.

Pokedex is set to receive the major update, and players can look forward to battle and catch a big new Pocket Monster. Such a thing would be possible thanks to a new post by Nintendo, which revealed a massive version of Snorlax.

Moreover, players will soon be able to fight Gigantamax Snorlax in Max Raid battles. It will be, unfortunately, a limited event. Gigantamax Snorlax will be seen in Pokemon Sword and Shield from December 4 until the beginning of January. Nintendo detailed, “We now know that there are special Snorlax among the Snorlax that you can find living in the Galar region.”

Snorlax will be able to Gigantamaxing and then changing its appearance. It would also unleash a G-Max Move named G-Max Replenish. The Gigantamax Snorlax will have a more different look to the well-known Pocket Monster. Its body will display a tree sprouting, similar somehow with Toreterra.

For example, Snorlax’s berry seeds and small rocks that were attached to its belly fur have been updated, being more explosive. It will also possess an unshakeable strength, and according to Nintendo, it’s one of the most active Pokemon in the game.

Nintendo added: “Whether because of the great weight of its stomach or its unchanged natural disposition, this Gigantamax Pokemon almost never moves. […] it lifts its upper body by just a tiny amount and attacks by flailing with its arms and legs.” The newest Pokemon can be fought as part of Max Raids in Pokemon Sword and Shield on Nintendo Switch.
