Gigantamax Eevee Appears
Get G-Max Eevee In Max Raid Battles
|Event Duration||May 19th, 2020 ~ May 26th, 2020|
The second titular Pokemon of Let's Go Pikachu & Eevee has made its way to dens across the wild area on May 19th for one week! This follows the one week of Gigantamax Pikachu raids and will be a great opportunity for players who don't have a Let's Go! save file to get the Pokemon. After this event, Gigantamax Meowth will be available for one week.
Gigantamax Eevee's ability G-Max Cuddle hits opponents and also infatuates them! This will make Pokemon of the opposite gender infatuated and likely unable to move. This move can be very frustrating to deal with, so make sure to bring Pokemon of the opposite gender OR genderless Pokemon.
Hidden Ability Eevee Might Appear As Well
Because Gigantamax Pikachu with their hidden ability appeared in the previous event, we think it is likely that the same is true for Eevee. This could be a chance to get a unique Gigantamax Eevee with a hidden ability!
Location Of The Den

Recommended Pokemon To Bring
|EVs||Atk 252, Speed 252, HP 4|
Having one Grimmsnarl on any team is always a good idea, and while we don't know exactly what kind of moves Gigantamax Eevee will bring out, having Light Screen or Reflect up will massively help your team either way. Taunt is also a fallback option in case these Eevees know any frustrating moves like Yawn, Charm, or Curse.Check Out More Detailed Grimmsnarl Competitive Builds
|EVs||Atk 252, Speed 252, HP 4|
The main reason for bringing Dracovish, aside from its excellent DPS, is that it is a genderless Pokemon and cannot be affected by infatuation! This will give you an advantage over Eevee's G-Max Cuddle!More Dracovish Builds Here
|EVs||Sp. Atk 252, Speed 252, HP 4|
Many people's standard fare for Max Raid Battles, Eternatus, is actually quite usable against Gigantamax Eevee! The lack of gender is also a boost as it prevents you from being infatuated, plus Dynamax Cannon deals enough damage to justify a spot!
Legendary Fighting Types
The generation 5 legendary fighting type trio was recently added to the game via the Pokemon Home Update, so if you haven't already make sure to transfer them over! These 3 are ideal because they are immune to infatuation and have moves STAB super-effective Fighting moves. If you don't have these, almost any legendary will do, as they tend to be genderless as well. Just make sure you bring a Fighting move on them for maximum damage.
How To Beat Gigantamax Eevee
Not As Difficult As Pikachu
Gigantamax Eevee is not as tricky as the previous week's Pikachu was. This means that generally, as long as you have 4 Pokemon constantly attacking, you should be able to take it out with no problem.
As we mentioned above, Eevee's G-Max Cuddle will infatuate your Pokemon. The easy way to deal with this is to bring genderless Pokemon!
