Gigantamax Locations Guide: If you have watched the newest Pokemon Anime Season (Pokemon Journeys) then you must be aware of what is Gigantamax form. For those who don’t have a clue, it is a variation of Dynamax which allows the Pokemon to grow in size. However, it is only available for a couple of Pokemon and can be caught in some areas where Pokemon Dens exist. Gigantamax evolution is already present in some popular GBA ROMs like Pokemon Unbound.
Here we are sharing all the Gigantamax locations in Pokemon Sword & Shield. Although you should keep in mind that Pokemon Dens will not always spawn a Pokemon and may depend on spawn rate and other metrics.
