The Watchtower Lair (Japanese: ダイ巣穴 Dai Den) is a special Pokémon Den in Pokémon Sword and Shield. It is located in the Watchtower Ruins.

The Watchtower Lair cannot normally have a Max Raid Battle, and Wishing Pieces cannot be used in it. Instead, it can only have Max Raid Battles as a result of using a Dynamax Crystal—an event-exclusive item that always yields a specific Max Raid Battle, depending on the Dynamax Crystal used.

Dynamax Crystals

Each of the following Max Raid Battles only occur when the player uses the corresponding Dynamax Crystal.
