The latest Pokemon Sword
and Pokemon Shield trailer revealed yet another great, unexpected gameplay mechanic: Gigantaxing, not confused with Dynamaxing or previous generation's "Mega Evolution." Here is what Gigantaxing is and the differences between the three we know so far. But first see the new trailer below to see a Gigantamax Pokemon with all its glory.
What is Gigantaxaxing?
Gigantamaxing a Pokemon changes both size and appearance. For example, a Gigantamax Alcremie grows a large multi-layer cake beneath it, and a Gigantamax Corviknight grows larger, rises into the air and wins "independently flying leaf birds". Yes.
Gygantamaxing a Pokemon increases its statistics as Dynamax Pokemon (but we assume it even more), and Gygantamaxed Pokemon will also have access to a special G-Max Move.
