About This File
This is a wild area event held by Sword and Shield. Despite publicizing that Gigantamax variants for Coalossal, Lapras, Flapple and Appletun were to be more easily available, this event also allowed encounters for the Gigantamax variants for Alcremie.
For base game Pokémon Sword and Shield, without this event, there is no den that will enable players to encounter a non-Vanilla flavored Gigantamax Alcremie.
Coalossal and Flapple were Sword exclusive raids, and Lapras and Appletun were Shield exclusive raids.
Some non-Vanilla forms were also version exclusive, as seen below:
|Sword Raids||Shield Raids|
|Vanilla Cream||2★||Vanilla Cream||2★|
|Mint Cream||3★||Ruby Cream||3★|
|Lemon Cream||3★||Matcha Cream||3★|
|Ruby Cream||4★||Caramel Swirl||4★|
|Matcha Cream||4★||Rainbow Swirl||4★|
|Salted Cream||5★||Mint Cream||5★|
|Ruby Swirl||5★||Lemon Cream||5★|
(All of the Gigantamax Alcremie encountered via raids, thus far, can only have the Strawberry Decoration.)
Though it is important to note, that the host can invite players of the opposite version to join in the raids.
This event ran globally from January 9th to January 30th, 2020.
