Shiny Magikarp appears in Pokémon Sword & Shield

A new Dynamax Raid event has begun on Pokémon Sword & Shield to celebrate the New Year with Magikarp Shiny.

As we approach the release date of Pokémon Legends: Arceus, the franchise community is already getting impatient and expecting a lot of new content. While some coaches don’t mind waiting patiently until January 28, some have already returned to Sword & Shield for consolation.

Despite the game’s release in 2019, Game Freak still has regular events with Dynamax Raids to keep active players occupied. And to celebrate this 2022, the developers have done their best by allowing coaches to pick up the glossy version of Magikarp.

Sword & Shield event in Dynamax Raids adds Magikarp Shiny

A new event has arrived in Dynamax Raids for the New Year with new creatures to capture.

From December 31, 2021 to January 6, 2022, players will have a 2% chance of capturing Magikarp Shiny, Meowth, Simularbre, and Darumacho. During these 7 days, you will have the opportunity to catch these different Pokemon in Dynamax Raids, so don’t miss this opportunity to add a new Shiny to your collection or even to start playing it!

Capture the Shiny Magikarp on the Pokémon Sword & Shield while there is still time left!

Remember to prepare properly for such an event as you will definitely not be able to beat it with some attacks, so make sure you have an electric type team preferably.

And even if Magikarp isn’t the rarest or most powerful Pokémon, it will be even more fun if you evolve it into a Leviator!
