Gigantamax Pokémon locations can't be nailed down as easily as standard Pokémon locations, as there's more at work than just catching the right type of Pokémon. Here's how to get Gigantamx Pokémon.
Gigantamax Pokémon Locations in Sword and Shield: How to Get Gigantamax Pokémon
A total of 23 Pokémon can turn into a Gigantamax form. Although the different species can be found all over the world of Pokémon Sword and Shield, those caught in the wild are incapable of Gigantamaxing.
The only way to catch most Gigantamax Pokémon is to nab them during Max Raid Battles. Gigantamax Pokémon are rare even in Max Raid Battles, but Game Freak plans to make certain they're more common during special events.
Three other Gigantamax Pokémon can be collected outside of Max Raid Battles, but only through special promotions. Players with a save file for either Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee! or Pikachu! on their Switch can claim Gigantamax versions of those Pokémon by going to the Wild Area train station, in the Meetup Spot zone of the Wild Area. Speak to the two NPCs there and you'll be rewarded your Gigantamax Pokémon.
Finally, players can receive Gigantamax Meowth from Mystery Gifts until Jan. 15. Open the menu by pressing 'X', hit the Mystery Gift logo, select Get a Mystery Gift, select Get via Internet, then claim your Pokémon.
