This article lists all the G-Max Moves that are found in the game Pokemon Sword and Shield.

What are G-Max Moves?

G-Max Moves are moves exclusive to Gigantamax Forms of Pokemon species. They can be seen as a counterpart of Max Moves. Every Gigantamax Pokemon has a unique G-Max Move.

When a Pokemon is Gigantamaxed, its damaging moves which match their G-Max Move's type will change temporarily into that move. The power and PP of these moves are based on those of the original move. However, they will be stronger, and like Max Moves, each G-Max Move features a unique effect.
