A brand new Wild Area event in Pokémon Sword and Shield has begun and this time, players have the chance to catch creatures usually exclusive to the opposite version of the game.

Running until March 25th at 23:59 UTC, the 'Pokédex Completion Event' sees these usually-unobtainable Pokémon appearing in Max Raid Battles. Some previous Shield Version exclusive Pokémon like Galarian Ponyta and Galarian Corsola can currently be found in Pokémon Sword, while Sword exclusives like Galarian Farfetch'd and Galarian Darumaka are currently available in Pokémon Shield.

Serebii has already provided a full database of all Pokémon appearing in the new event.

These Max Raid Battles are also introducing a new selection of rare rewards, including some highly sought after fossils. If your Pokédex is still missing a few entries, now might well be a good time to jump back in and carry on catching em' all.

Are you hunting down those last few 'mon? Will you be diving back into Galar this week to see what's new? Let us know with a comment.
