Eternamax (Japanese: ムゲンダイマックス Mugendaimax) is an unobtainable kind of Dynamax introduced in Generation VIII.
Unlike Dynamax or Gigantamax, the transformation cannot be obtained by the player but is seen when Eternabeam is used. So far, the only known Pokémon to have this transformation is Eternatus. This transformation occurs when a Pokémon absorbs massive amounts of energy at once.
This transformation first occurs after the player defeats Eternatus for the first time, when Eternatus changes into the Eternamax form after absorbing all the energy in Galar. Eternamax Eternatus proceeds to absorb more energy while preventing the player's and Hop's Pokémon from attacking. This power is negated when the player calls upon Zacian and Zamazenta, resulting in a special Max Raid Battle where the player captures Eternatus, ending its Eternamax transformation.
While Eternamax cannot be obtained by the player, while facing off against it, Eternamax Eternatus functions similar to a Dynamax Pokémon in a Max Raid Battle. It can negate the effect of the players' Abilities and stat changes and cure itself of non-volatile status conditions. It can also use Max Moves during the battle. After defeating it, it is guaranteed to be caught.
However, it cannot create a protective barrier like Rank 3 and above Max Raid Battle opponents can. Additionally, it does not take increased damage from Behemoth Blade and Behemoth Bash.
In the TCG
In the Trading Card Game, Eternamax is listed as a subcategory of Pokémon VMAX and only featured in Eternatus VMAX.
