Get ready to discover Galar, an expansive region with diverse environments. The people and Pokemon who live here work together closely to develop the industries within it. The Wild Area is a vast expanse of land in the Galar region with untamed wilderness. While in the Wild Area, players can control the camera to explore the vast areas around them and search for Pokemon and items. Trainers will find a good variety of Pokemon living in the Wild Area than anywhere else in the Galar region. Max Raid Battles are a new battle format that takes place in the Wild Area, in which the player will team up with three other Trainers to take on a wild Dynamax Pokemon.
Trainers will then get a chance to catch the wild Dynamax Pokemon if they manage to defeat it – but it won’t go down easily. Dynamax is a phenomenon unique to specific locations in the Galar region, where Pokemon can take on gigantic appearances during battle, and it’s an integral part of Pokemon battles in the region. All the moves of a Dynamax Pokemon will turn into special Max Moves. The Legendary Pokemon Zacian and Zamazenta are shrouded in mystery and are unknown even to those who live in the Galar region.
