Pokémon from the Galar region are capable of Dynamaxing. Dynamax Pokémon become incredibly large and tremendously powerful, but the effect only lasts for 3 turns and can only be performed once per battle.

The item Dynamax Band is required to Dynamax Pokémon. Only Trainers who have one can Dynamax their Pokémon

When Dynamaxed, all of a Pokémon’s moves become Max Moves. Max Moves are powerful, but some even have additional effects. The Normal-type Max Move called Max Strike has the additional effect of lowering the Speed stats of opponents it hits.

In the Galar region’s Wild Area, players can encounter wild Dynamax Pokémon and battle them in Max Raid Battles. In Max Raid Battles, four player co-operate to battle a Pokémon that remains Dynamaxed for the whole battle.

The wild Dynamax Pokémon you face in Max Raid Battles vary based on the weather and where in the Wild Area you are. The weather changes daily.
