What Are Max Raid Battles?

Max Raid Events with friends.jpg
Max Raid Battles allow you to team up with three other trainers to take on a wild Dynamax Pokemon. You can encounter other trainers online or through a local connection and hang out together in the Wild Area. As soon as you have found three other players to team up with, you are ready to join in a Max Raid Battle!
