Each Dynamax Pokémon is super dynamic!
Pokémon you encounter can Dynamax!
Pokémon battles specialized for Dynamax
The Dynamax phenomenon, which allows Pokémon to become tremendously powerful, is an integral part of Pokémon battles in the Galar region. Dynamax Pokémon don’t just become bigger—they get a boost in power as well. But they will return to normal after three turns, so make sure think carefully about when to trigger the Dynamax phenomenon!
You can only Dynamax your Pokémon once per battle!
You can only Dynamax your Pokémon in specific locations of the Galar region, like in the stadiums of Pokémon Gyms.
The key item for Dynamaxing: the Dynamax Band
Naturally, the Dynamax phenomenon is the topic of much research in the Galar region. A special item known as the Dynamax Band is the product of such research. Only Trainers who possess a Dynamax Band are able to Dynamax their Pokémon.
All the moves of a Dynamax Pokémon will turn into special Max Moves. Max Moves pack a punch, but that’s not all! Some of them can even trigger powerful additional effects!
The Max Moves your Pokémon can use are determined by what kind and types of moves they knew before Dynamaxing.
The Normal-type Max Move called Max Strike has the additional effect of lowering the Speed stats of opponents it hits!
