Main article: Wild Area News

November 1, 2022, to End-of-life

This Wild Area News focuses on Gigantamax Pokémon, several of which are not typically available in the wild, as well as Ditto, Wooloo, and Dubwool.

The Pokémon HOME news section described these event raids as "featuring Pokémon that did not previously appear during normal play, such as Gigantamax Snorlax", and announced that Wild Area News would receive no further updates following this final update.

It is assumed this event will be available via Wild Area News until the Nintendo Switch eventually reaches End-of-life, at which point Wild Area News will become inaccessible, as servers will have shutdown.
