Wild Area News

From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Jump to navigationJump to search

Wild Area News (Japanese: ワイルドエリアニュース Wild Area News) is a feature in Pokémon Sword and Shield that expands on the available Max Raid Battles in the Wild Area, making certain Pokémon more common for a limited time. It can be accessed via Mystery Gift or updated automatically by connecting to the internet in game. Wild Area News typically spawns different Max Raid Battles depending on the game version. Certain species of Gigantamax Pokémon, which are usually very rare, are often made more common through Wild Area News events. Additionally, during the Wild Area News events, certain Pokémon such as Mewtwo and Zeraora sometimes cannot be captured.

Any Pokémon Den can spawn a Max Raid Battle from Wild Area News. Pokémon Dens that do so will always emit a red beam, indicating the "common" pool. In contrast to normal Max Raid Battles (which either only allow Pokémon in 4★ and 5★ raids to have their Hidden Abilities, or guarantee Pokémon in the Pokémon Den will always have their Hidden Abilities), all Pokémon that spawn from Wild Area News have a chance of having their Hidden Abilities. Wild Area News Raids battled after Version 1.2.0 and 1.3.0 can drop Armorite Ore and Dynite Ore, respectively, regardless of whether or not the player has purchased the Pokémon Sword and Shield Expansion Pass.
