A Step Up from Dynamax

Gigantamax is a phenomenon in the Galar region wherein Pokemon change into a new, mega-sized form. Their HP is boosted, and their moves turn into powerful Max Moves, shared with Dynamax Pokemon, or G-Max Moves, which are unique to each Gigantamax Pokemon.

Differences between Dynamax and Gigantamax Pokemon

Gigantamax Pokemon are Rare

Even if a Pokemon species has a Gigantamax Form, not every member of that species can Gigantamax. You'll need to find a Gigantamax Pokemon from a Max Raid Event, by giving your Pokemon Max Soup to unlock its Gigantamax potential.

In The Isle of Armor DLC, a new feature called Max Soup will allow a Pokemon which previously could only Dynamax to become capable of Gigantamaxing. You'll have to collect three Max Mushrooms around The Isle of Armor to make it.
