'Pokémon Sword' and 'Shield' Just Welcomed a New Gigantamax Monster


Pokémon Sword and Shield fans have plenty of cool new content to look forward to, just in time to celebrate Pokémon Day when it officially arrives on Feb. 27. In honor of the day the first Pokémon games released in Japan back in 1996, The Pokémon Company is adding lots of goodies to the modern games. This includes the introduction of a new Gigantamax Pokémon called Toxtricity. It'll be a free addition anyone can play with if they so choose, and it'll be just in time for festivities to start.

With Pokémon Day right around the corner, The Pokémon Company is bringing the new Gigantamax Pokémon as well as a new Mythical Pokémon to Sword and Shield. Details about the new Mythical monster will be released on Feb. 27, but today, the Toxtricity evolution can be found in-game, and it sounds like it's going to be a blast to check out. It's there for any player who just couldn't wait for the new Pokémon discovery at the end of the month, which feels like it's a while away.
