Pokemon Sword and Shield: How To Get Zeraora, Including The Shiny Version

How to catch this powerhouse Pokemon.

Isle of Armor, the first expansion for Pokemon Sword and Shield, is out now (with The Crown Tundra coming later this year).

Zeraora, one of the expansions most powerful new additions, is a Pokemon you'll want to add to your Pokedex and collection. Here's how.

How to get Zeraora in Isle of Armor DLC

Zeraora can only be found in Max Raid Battles from yesterday, June 17, to June 28.

Zeraora can appear in three-star raids and above, so be on the lookout.

If one million players beat Zeraora in Max Raid Battles, you'll even be able to claim a shiny version in the Mystery Gifts menu. You'll need to have transferred a Pokemon to or from Pokemon Home to enable this though!

Update:

Good news, trainers! Shiny Zeraora will be sent to all players, but you'll need to use Pokemon Home on mobile to get it. You'll find it in the mystery gift menu up until July 6 at 4:59 PM PDT.
