What Is Dynamax Adventures

Investigate Pokemon Dens In The Dynamax Adventures


The new Dynamax Adventures mode feature will appear in Pokemon Sword and Shield's second expansion, the Crown Tundra. In this mode, 4 players work together to defeat dynamax Pokemon in a giant Pokemon den. Reach the end of the den and catch legendary Pokemon!

Use Rental Pokemon


In this mode, you cannot bring your own Pokemon from your party and you need to use rental Pokemon. You can also swap your Pokemon with the Pokemon you've defeated during the battle.

Endless Dynamax Adventures Mode


If you want to challenge yourself, there will be an extra challenging mode called "Endless Dynamax Adventures Mode". This mode will let you keep going until you lose a battle. It is unclear if there will be special rewards for going as far as you can, or if this is purely for the sake of challenge.

Pokemon You Can Get

Get Past Legendary Pokemon


The main draw of Dynamax Adventures is the fact that you'll be able to obtain legendary Pokemon from previous games in the franchise! The deepest part of the cave will contain such legendaries, so you'll have to make it all the way to the end.

Version Exclusivity Applies

In standard Pokemon fashion, you won't be able to obtain all the legendaries with just one game. You will need both Sword and Shield to get them all, so make sure to coordinate with friends!

Alolan Form Pokemon Too?

Click to Enlarge

Although we haven't 100% confirmed it, in some of the images revealed so far we were able to spot what appears to be the silhouette of an Alolan Sandslash. Perhaps you'll be able to catch Alolan forms of Pokemon in this mode as well?

Legendary Pokemon Catch Rate Is 100%

The legendary Pokemon that appear in Dynamax Adventures will have a catch rate of 100%! If you're able to clear all the raid battles and get to the Legendary Pokemon, you're guaranteed to capture it. If you want your Legendary to have a special ball, this means you can do so without worrying about if you can catch it or not!

Only Catchable Once?

It appears that once you catch a Legendary Pokemon once, you won't be able to catch it again. We are not sure if this means that the Pokemon will stop spawning entirely or if you simply won't be able to throw a ball at one. When the DLC is released, we will provide you with more information!

Dynamax Adventures Mechanics

Difference From Raid Battles In Wild Area


In Dynamax Adventures mode, you can't use your own Pokemon. Instead, you have to use rental Pokemon. If you win the max raid battle, you'll have a chance to catch that Pokemon and one trainer on the team can swap the newly caught Pokemon in for the Pokemon they had before.

Use Pokemon You Caught


▲Swap Pokemon as you explore deeper in the den

You can choose to swap out your current Pokemon with one you caught during the adventure! Only one of the players on your team can do this, and it seems that priority is determined by the order on the left (top down).

Pokemon Don't Heal After Battle

Your Pokemon's HP and PP will carry over after the battle. Swap with the Pokemon you've caught along the way to heal your HP.

Tips & Strategy On Dynamax Adventures

Choose Your Starting Pokemon Wisely


Check your teammates' Pokemon and choose the Pokemon which can substitute their weakness. You'll have 3 option of Pokemon to choose from and if you want to change your option, consider getting out of Dynamax Adventure and come back again to reload your starting Pokemon options.

Check The Type & Shadow Of Opponents


You can tell which Pokemon you'll be facing from the type and Pokemon's shadow in the purple fog. Forecast your opponent and swap your Pokemon along the way to strike their weakness.

Choose The Pass With Berry & NPC


A Berry icon was spotted in the field of Adventures, suggesting that players will be able to use these to recover lost health. There are also NPCs spotted in the field as well. Perhaps you'll be able to get support from them as well.

I think the question on a lot of players’ minds (my own for certain) is whether the Dynamax Adventures can be done in offline solo play. If not, for players who don’t like online or when the servers are no longer supported, it will become the most useless and infuriating part of the game.
