    Ugh, that sucks.

    Maybe you can SR for it? Maybe I’m being a little bit too hopeful?

    I think they meant you could find it in Raid Dens.

    I'll admit making G-Maxing as rare as they seem to have done sounds like a bad idea.
    If it's one of the core mechanics of the Gen, why make it so hard to get? Some Mega Evos were hard too but they were like in set locations for the stones and whatnot so you could still get them. G-Maxes are random chance (Likely very very low chance at that outside the one event that will go on) and you won't even know until you go in the raid. There should be some indicator that This Butterfree is way more special than the average Butterfree or something like that as a hint.

    They retconned some of Eevee's evo methods. It now evolves into Leafeon and Glaceon through the Leaf and Ice stones respectively.

    Here's a quick screenshot I got of the mural from the trailer for reference:


    The red flames/lightning/whatever it is reminds me of the dynamax models having red coloration on them. This might represent the dynamax phenomenon. On the left, it seems to be something that could create war. It could be represented as a force of corruption that makes people fight against each other. On the right, the people seem to unite once the sword and shield are present as those eliminate the red coloration from the sky. Also I suspect the third legendary could be represented as the force in the sky and possibly the origin of dynamax.

    I'm not sure if Zacian and Zamazenta would be represented as the two distinguished people. They could just be a couple of civilians depicted from ancient times who disliked the war that was going on or were the ones who summoned the mascots. The way they are presented and focused on could have more meaning than what is initially thought.

    I hope next the Max Raid Den odds are datamined. Knowing the chances of finding a Gigantamax/Hidden Ability is really gonna make or break my team.

    I believe it does indicate if it has a G-factor or not prior to going into the battle.

    Regardless, that doesn’t help all that much if they’re too rare to find.

    And why let the gym battle Pokémon be capable of g- maxing, if yours can only dynamax? How are you supposed to beat them?

    IIRC the leaders only get Gigantamaxes during the rematch with them.

    Even then, Gigantamaxing isn’t that much better than Dynamaxing. For some Pokémon I’d even argue it’s better to Dynamax them.

    I guess it's to give you more of a drive to go into raids to try and get on their level of power? That' what I can guess out of it anyways.

    I don't know if it's true or not, but on one of the threads(can't remember which) here where someone listed the gym leader teams they listed some gym leaders with "g-max" pokemon. I think it started by the third gym, but I'm not completely sure.

    Yeah, from the third gym on they use gigantamax. There's not really much difference bar the exclusive move.

    Thanks, bro.

    What is your sixth Pokemon?
    I know you will pick Scorbunny and fully evolve it into Cinderace. lol

    I'm gonna pick Sobble because I love lizards (yep, that means I picked Charmander and Treecko). lol

    About getting Scorbunny, I'll be waiting until HA Scorbunny officially releases.
    Cinderace's HA, signature move, and moveset are so good.

    Is my love for Fire Types that apparent? Lol at least you can relate with your username/pfp
    My sixth is
    either Dubwool, Grapacolt, Copperjah, or Barraskewda. Leaning towards Dubwool or Coppeejah

    I also love lizards and chose Charmander/Treecko for the same reason

    I have no clue what they were thinking with Zacian. It has one of the best defensive typings in the game (Fairy/Steel), with 170 attack, 148 speed meaning it outspeeds pretty much everything, Fairy typing means it can hit dragon and fighting (which most of ubers is) plus it has good Fighting coverage to hit steel and dark (which a lot of ubers is), and steel gives it immunity to toxic and poison type moves (great against Eternatus). And they didn't even make it frail, it has 92/115/115 bulk. Plus, it gets a free +1 to its attack whenever it switches in. AND it has a move that doubles power against dynamax so you can't even rely on that. It is ridiculously overpowered.

    Regarding the "1125" Eternatus, its crazy stats are all relegated to HP and the defenses. That said, I am already thinking of a few possible ways to take it down.
